Getting paid to blog about things you love. It is the fastest and best way to earn money online. Advertisers looking for links, hire bloggers to blog about their sites. Once a post has been written and submitted, bloggers are paid mostly by Paypal.
What is a blog?
Short for “web log”, a blog is a type of website. It is an up to date series of posts on a particular subject. It can be about anything and everything; there are personal blogs, photo blogs, blogs on hobbies, and blogs on every subject under the sun.
How much can You Earn from Blogging?
It takes time to build a good quality blog, and attract traffic to it. If you are passionate about a subject, and enjoy writing, then you will enjoy blogging about that particular subject. You can create a blog for free with Blogspot or WordPress. It’s very easy to set up, and once you’ve selected a template, you can begin writing posts. Once your blog is set up and starts getting traffic, you can submit your blog to blog advertising networks. These networks will review your blog before accepting your blog in their network. They have some requirements, and if your blog meets them, it is accepted or rejected.
Once your blog is accepted into the network, you will get opportunities to write about advertisers on your blog. You can earn anywhere from $5 to $100 for writing a post. The amount you earn depends upon the quality of content and popularity of your blog.
Google does not approve of sponsored posts, hence if you write sponsored posts, your Google page rank is likely to suffer. If your google page rank is not good, then you won’t get many blogging opportunities. It’s now become quite difficult to earn good money from writing sponsored posts.
