Making Money With Your Blogs

When I first wrote my original “Why I Hate Blogs” for article submission I was pretty sure that the humor would get some hits but in my wildest dreams I never thought that out of the 26 articles I did write that it would be second in the amount of the hits it did get. Actually it was dark humor because I honestly do hate spending the time blogging away or let us be more specific – I honestly DID hate spending that time.

It does not cost anything to own and host blogs which is another reason for their popularity. The most extensively used blogging service is Blogger which is provided by Google. By using Blogger you can own and host blogs without any cost. If you do have your own website you can use the same hosting service to host your blogs. In case your hosting service provides you with cPanel and Fantastic you can use WordPress blogs. You can get get inspired with literally hundreds of designs and templates to choose from.

Google AdSense. I told you in the beginning that making money online blogs does not require any recruiting or selling. By simply placing a 2 line code on your blog or website you have the potential to earn daily. This code rotates a series of ads. Every time on of your website visitors clicks on that ad you earn a commission. Google has millions of advertisers so there will never be a shortage of ads to circulate. You can earn hundreds of dollars per day from individuals clicking on the ads on your website. No sale is required in order to receive payment from Google. You can receive .5 or .10 cents per click to up to $50 or even $60 per click depending on the product.

You can also make money online by blogging by placing some Google Ads on your blogs. You get paid each time your audience clicks on the ads. You get paid when someone clicks on the ads. This is an auto-pilot income as you do not need to do any work for you to get paid.
