There are tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people making money by blogging today. Some make money by getting paid as freelancers to write on other people’s blogs, while others make money by having their own blog. Both methods pay enough that people can earn a full time income with them. Here’s how to get started with both.

Making Money as a Freelance Blogger

A freelance blogger is someone who writes blog posts for other people’s blogs in exchange for a pre-set payment. A blogger can make anywhere from $5 a post to as much as $300 a post or more.

Three places to get your first gig as a paid blogger are: eLance.com, Guru.com and ProBlogger.net.

Keep in mind that the competition is quite heavy. If you want to win bids, you should have several first class samples on hand. Even if you need to write five articles just for the sake of having samples and not getting paid for them, it’s probably worth it.

In the beginning, you can expect to earn around $5-$10 a post. With time you’ll be able to command higher rates.

Making Money with Your Own Blog

If you have your own blog, you can do very well blogging for pay. You can write paid reviews and articles for money. Basically other companies will pay you money to review their product on your blog.

You can make money by selling affiliate programs. You review programs that you personally endorse and any time someone buys the product through your link, you get paid a commission.

You can also make money through advertising programs. AdSense is the easiest program to get started with and can be placed on just about any website. You can also make money by selling your own advertising to people who want to advertise on your site.

To get paid for blogging, you first need to build an audience. The secret to building an audience is to provide very, very good content over a long period of time. That, coupled with some basic SEO and online promotion techniques, will help you gradually and steadily build a reputable site online that can make you a very generous full-time income.

Can You Really Make Money Blogging for Pay?

The answer is yes, absolutely. If you’ve never made money online before, it can seem a little too good to be true. “Get paid for blogging? Really?”

However, it’s not as easy as it seems. It takes work and commitment. But the money, the freedom and the payoff are very, very real.

The best way to prove to yourself that it can be done is to make your first $100 online now. Start either as a freelance blogger or start your own blog today. Once you hit the $100 mark and prove to yourself that you can really make money blogging for pay, the sky’s the limit.

5 Responsesto “Can You Really Make Money Blogging?”

    I am a new blogger and these days it is even harder just to get Google to publish your website.

    My articles are well written from the heart and yet I am still waiting to be listed on the web.

  2. avatar Darren Yates says:

    Google owns blogspot where you’re hosting your blog, so you should be indexed. To speed things up, and more specifically boost your rankings, I’d suggest syndicating some of your articles to a few article directories e.g. ezine articles, goarticles, searchwarp etc. be sure and include a link back to your site in the ‘About The Author’ section.

    You should also ping your RSS feed, you can do this to 96ish sites for free via pingler.com.

    Of course there’s plenty more you can do – social bookmarking, classified ads, convert your articles to videos and post those, exchange links with similar themed sites, write guest posts on similar themed sites, utilise Twitter and Facebook etc etc.

    Hope that helps.
