Blogs were originally only meant to be ‘Web Logs’, or personal journals for members of on-line communities to stay in touch, sort of like ‘underground news media’. But, it didn’t take long for net-repreneurs (internet entrepreneurs) to catch on to their popularity and to find ways to use them to make money. The human mind is infinitely creative and nothing really stays the same.
One of the most important things to do when trying to keep up with multiple online blogs is managing time. Bloggers need to budget their time and make sure enough time is being spent on each blog. Some of them may need more updating then others so how time is divided will depend on the bloggers. A blog that is made up of opinions and thoughts, are usually easier than a blog that requires research. Also, one blog may have to be updated every day while another only has to be updated weekly. Bloggers may want to schedule out specific time to spend on each blog in order to keep them all update and successful.
The mighty Splog – This is a “dirty” blog, and most people don’t like splogs. A Splog is a blog that is built by someone that takes other people’s content from their site without permission and put it on their site, they then turn around and put their ads all over the site. Besides just being downright rude, it actually does hurt people like you and I that strive to provide original content.
Don’t think about those days in grammar school. You don’t have to worry about a teacher sitting at the front of the class looking over her glasses at you while you are writing. Forget about turning in your elementary school papers and fearing the big red pen. You are now older and you have all the tools that you need to get started with writing online.
Some blogs also sell ad space significantly like a magazine where payments are made every time the ad is shown or ads are displayed to get a monthly rate.
So I remain with my hand raised on “hating All about life and work“. And I fully admit I continue to blog. The lesson that I have learned is that no web technology should be ignored when it becomes mainstay. If you are serious about adding credibility to your business then setting up a blog should also be part of the plan.
Time to network – With blogs, you are inevitably going to meet new people. AS you add valuable content, people will start commenting on and following your blog. As you get to know some of your followers, you may be able to leverage each other’s abilities and experiences.
In summation, those are my top three tips to earning money with blogs. I believe that if a person is dedicated and willing to put in the time, anyone can earn a four figure income every month from their blogging activities.
