Mary asks…

could someone explain to me exactly how I would make money blogging?

I am a little confused on exactly how I would make money by blogging, I mean who pay me and how, once I blog who come to my page and how do I get them there. I really appreciate if some one could break it down for me.

Most die-hard bloggers have heard that you can make money blogging, but some don’t realize how easy it can be. From Google Adsense to pay per post deals, it’s never been easier to make money blogging. But should a blogger sell out to a pay per post or add revenue site? What are the most popular pay per post blog revenue sites to make money blogging today?

Blogitive, at is a pay per post site that offers jobs on a first come, first served irregular basis. When clients buy advertising, the jobs are posted, and the first bloggers to accept the jobs get them. Pay is $5 per post, but a little creative writing work is necessary to get blogitive to accept a blog posting. You are given a lengthy press release, and you must incorporate it into your blog along with a link to the client. You must only use one client link, which is attached to a special keyword. Blogitive pays decently, and is somewhat reliable with payment. Jobs are infrequent, but the more blogs you have listed with blogitive, the better your chances of obtaining a job will be. They pay every dime you make money blogging through paypal.

Bloggingads, at is a startup blog pay per post site. They also pay $5 through paypal per ad. They offer the entire ad, which can be copied word for word and pasted into the blog, or you can make the ad your own by altering it. It is an easy way to make money blogging. Bloggingads does not have a lot of jobs to offer, but they pay for the test blog entry. Unlike blogitive, bloggingads puts their client / blogger information on the same page. Blogitive puts its client advertisements on a separate site that is not attached to the blogger base.

Blogsvertise, at is a newer blog pay per post site. Blog sites must be approved, and topics are assigned to members. They do not offer a press release. You must check for tasks, and they pay through paypal. This site is not necessarily for link exchange, but more so for buzz growth. They pay ten dollars for an entry, which is a good rate to make money blogging, but if the quality of the blog increases, pay increases. They are not too selective with blogs as long as they are blogs with real writing in it and not bot writing.

Pay Per Post, at is a blog revenue site that is very selective with the blogs it chooses, but assignments are easy. The problem with pay per post is that they do not always make clear regulations, they have a tiny link to track blog posts, which leads to confusion, and they are not very user-friendly for all bloggers. In addition, they require a lot of personal information to submit your blog, a practice that has bloggers leery of their practices. Some feel that pay per post is an awful way to make money blogging. Pay per post pays relatively well depending on the project. Some offer over ten dollars for the post. Of course, these sites are only for pay per post. There are other ways to make money blogging like Adsense, pay to blog which is basically a glorified blog site. The pay per post sites are great because a blogger can use a little bit of time and make a nice amount of grocery money. As clients increase, pay per post jobs become more frequent, which is quite nice for those who make money blogging. The problem with pay per post blogging is basic. If you want to make adsense money, it is likely that your blog will be picked on eventually as an SEO link spammer.

Some will not make money blogging both with Adsense and pay per post. To keep this from happening, a lot of blog for cash sites suggest against the pay per post types of revenue sites if your Google ranking is better than five. Proponents of pay per post sites clarify that Google Adsense is often a limited venture, with very little revenue possible for most bloggers, so why not pay per post to make money blogging. Pay per post does tend to look funny on some blogs, and others it is basically used as a writing challenge or fun game of “Let’s see how I can get this ad to fit in my blog.”

The more serious of bloggers try to keep one “virgin blog” without advertisements of any kind and then run a few revenue blogs at the same time. For the prolific, this arrangement can net a little extra money and prove to be a great diversion. Pay per post sites are yet another way to make money blogging, a trend that is certain to grow as bloggers and companies needing the buzz of the blog unite for mutual benefit. If you want to make money blogging, all you need is a blog, some time, and the willingness to participate.

Chris asks…

How can I make money blogging?

I just got a great idea for a blog. Any good sites for me to blog on? Would it be better to start my own website/domain? What are the ways I could make money from blogging? Is it solely advertising?

Herschel Lawhorn answers:

First off, definitely get your own domain name, it will be a lot better for you in the long run. As far as monetizing a blog, there are many different ways, you mentioned advertising which is the obvious choice, however you need a large amount of traffic to make a decent amount of money with advertising. Affiliate marketing can be a great way to make money, depending on your niche. Amazon and eBay have programs that allow you to show products on your site, and get a % based commission off every sale made. You can also sign up with an affiliate marketplace, like Click Bank – they have many different products you can sell in a variety of niches. Some of them pay as high as 75% commission. You can also run a membership site, where some of the content is free, and the rest is hidden unless you are a paid member. Again you’ll need a decent amount of traffic for this, and really good content.
