Starting a blog and actually earning income from a blog, is two totally different things. While running ads is one form of earning income from your blog, there are countless methods you could be utilizing to your advantage.
Though writing about your daily routine is okay, that sorta of content within your blog, won’t generate alot of passive income. Nor the traffic you need to apply for bigger advertising organizations requiring tons of monthly visitors to earn a bigger pie.
Thus picking a content niche that helps people will bring lots of visitors, like “Cooking recipes, How-Tos, resources or services”.
Starting a blog is easier then you think. All you need to do is pick a good website name that’s relevant to your content, and a good website host.
After you picked the necessary available name, (because theres tons of already claimed website names, be original as can be but short & catchy) chose a web host, created some content, and your website is now live for viewing. You can start venturing off into the world of online money making.
How to make money blogging (Simple).
you’ll want to start by applying for ad networks like adsense, infolinks, bidvertiser. Try going for all three and generating more income from other networks. Also make sure to stay in compliance with their terms of service, with your content and allowing other ads to be shown.
