How To Get Paid For Blogging

Starting a blog is not only a creative outlet but if people like what you write, it’s a great way to make money. In this article, I will discuss the various blog hosting options, and how you can get paid for blogging once your blog gets a substantial amount of traffic.

Starting a blog is simple. Before you create your blog it is important to make a decision about what type of blog you want. You could start a blog that is hosted for free and that comes with a free subdomain (meaning that your URL is not yours e.g yourWebsiteTitle.blogspot.com) and free hosting. Some of the options include Google Blogspot, WordPress.com, and Weebly.com. The only problem with these options is that you don’t own the blog and it doesn’t carry the same authority as a self-hosted blog.

A self-hosted blog is a blog with which you buy your own domain name (each year) and pay for hosting each month. Hosting is not expensive but is billed every month, but you can pay annually if you choose to. I have been using Hostgator for years and have found them to be very reliable. If you have not created a self-hosted blog before and find that getting the domain name to work with the web hosting to be challenging, you could purchase the domain name through Hostgator, as well as the website hosting. If not, and you want to purchase your domain name separately, Namecheap is good. Namecheap, as the name suggests, is cheaper than most other domain name registers. Some domain name registers sell you a domain name cheaply the first year then rip you off for all services every year after that.

Blogging is a great project and interest to have, but when your blog gets popular and you start receiving substantial traffic, why not monetize your blog? Some of the ways to make money online with blogging are Google Adsense advertising, selling the advertising space yourself for a fee you’ve negotiated, and writing sponsored posts.

Google Adsense can be profitable but is dependent on getting large amounts of traffic with a portion of this traffic clicking through to the offers. If you are not getting massive amounts of traffic, it only makes sense for both parties concerned that your application is not approved. When you are getting massive amounts of traffic and that is, targeted traffic, you have more options open to you than Google Adsense.

When your blog is popular and gets a good chunk of visitor traffic, other business people will be interested in using your popularity to generate exposure for their businesses. Selling Advertising space is a very lucrative way for you to make money, depending on how much traffic you get. If you are getting 1,000 visitors a day, this means you are getting on average 30,000 visitors per month. And 30,000 people viewing your advertising. You could easily get started by advertising an Adblock for $30 for the month, or you could sell the ad per click, but you may be better off starting with a flat rate. You could test whether visitors are going to click on the advertising by testing the ad space with your own ads. If it becomes apparent that people like clicking ads on your blog then you could sell the ad space per click.

Writing sponsored posts is similar to an advertorial in a newspaper except in this instance it’s online and you own the space. There are websites that will connect you and the advertiser up for the deal of you writing a sponsored post. The sponsored post can’t be taken down though which means you need to select an advertiser and topic carefully that is acceptable for your blog. If you often find that you lack ideas on what to write about this may fill the gap and you can be compensated as well.

Whether you create a free blog or a self-hosted blog you can get paid for blogging but you must be publishing quality content if you want to monetize the traffic you are receiving. Self-hosted blogs get more authority from the search engines, and your blog is yours to sell at a later date if this is something you choose to do. Once you are getting massive amounts of traffic you can monetize that traffic with Google Adsense, selling your advertising space yourself or writing sponsored posts for clients. As with any activity that becomes popular, advertising can monetize the audience and make the activity profitable.
