Right this is how! But first let me tell you about how I have tried.

This is how it all started… I was looking around the internet about blogging as someone i knew told me about it. I found timethief’s blog “basic blogging tips” I decided I would have a read before I decided anything. I had a good read of this blog and I saw how much this blog was achieving. I could see that time thief had way over 100 thousand views just from the US! Now that is amazing. I have also had a look at many other blogs and all these bloggers were achieving so much. So I decided to start blogging.

Then I got onto the wordpress site as it had impressed me more than Blogger or any other site. I made an account and I was blogging in seconds. It was amazing I couldn’t wait to have people looking at my blog. I was so excited i told some people about it. Now amazingly non of these people had ever heard of wordpress! So I explained to them non of them seemed really interested as they were to bust to make room for it. Bu one friend was.

I helped my friend start up a blog and he was astonished. This is exactly what he said “wow and this is all free?!” That’s another great thing about wordpress is it is free. (unless you have your own domain name). But then I found out about my stats button. I looked… Nothing. There were no views. I was confused as to why, but then I realized that timethief and all the other bloggers must have been blogging for years. So I started to find out how i could increse my blog traffic.

I looked at over 100 sites and followed the tips now my traffic is slowly increasing. I saw results in about 1 week. I looked and people were actually looking at my content not just the homepage! I loved it. Then i started thinking is it possible to be making money from this? So i did a search.

I found out that I can be making money but the income will start off very small. I thought I could not quit what i was doing now as blogging is only a hobby but I would still love to be making a bit of money with it. So here it is. How to make money blogging.

1. You can be making money by getting paid advertising on your blog. You can use things like Google Adwords or Adsense or you could use wordAD. I still haven’t tried these but they seem really good.

2. You could sell a product on your blog. This way involves a lot more work. It will also take a lot of time but still shows good results.

I hope you enjoyed reading my story and finding out how you can be making money from your blog.
