The blogging craze started at around 1987, when people who posted diaries in the World Wide Web started calling these sites as web blogs. At the start of the 21st century, the blogging craze erupted, with sites such as Blogger, TypePad, LiveJournal, and WordPress providing free hosting platforms for blogs. Blogging has evolved from solely being diaries of web users that are open to the public to being themed journals that cover fashion, politics, current events, and show business.
The trend nowadays in Blogging is monetizing your blog, meaning earning money from it. How can you exactly do that? There are many ways of making money in your blog. Here are some ways:
(1) Allow for ads in your blog. Ads in blogs usually pay for every blog visitor that clicks or is being led to a new site where the product advertised is being sold.
(2) Put a donation link in your blog. Believe it or not, some visitors actually donate money to blogs that they subscribe to.
(3) Make your blog a store as well. Your blog can be a showcase for products on sale as well.
Should you decide to make money on your blog, you have to make sure of some factor though. It would be better if traffic in your blog is heavy or at least, flourishing. Making sure that the topics in your blog appeal to a mass audience, so that your appearances on search engine results are more frequent and on the top page always, increasing your blog’s number of visitors, and eventually, your blog revenue.
