Many people are looking for a little added income, whether to make ends meet or just for a little extra spending money. For my family, it’s a little of both. To bring in a little extra cash I blog.
You can make money blogging different ways. If you have your own blog or website you can make money a variety of different ways like reviewing products to allowing ads on your sites. I make money a little differently. My income comes by blogging for someone else.
How Does That Work?
I am employed by someone looking to build their website. My job is to blog on a variety of useful topics in a variety of places with a link back to the site. This will hopefully increase the traffic to their site and their income. So, what does that mean for me? I get to spend my extra time researching and writing articles on anything I feel like, but usually within my expertise of health and fitness.
How Can I Find A Similar Job?
I am employed through an independent web designer; however, there are sites that will pay you to blog! Here are a few sites you might be interested in:
- Link Post: pays you to review products
- Sponsored Reviews: earn money through writing honest reviews in your own tone and style
- Review Me: pays you to review products and services on your site
- 451 Press: looking for writers to write on one of their many blogs
- Creative Weblogging: Get paid to blog in their network of blogs
- DayTipper: If they publish your tip you get paid $3
These are just a few, but there are tons of sites looking for talented writers to help them out. There are also many resources to adding ads to your blog. Here are a few advertisement resources I know of:
- Google Adsense
Is Blogging Feasible?
Let’s just say, don’t quit your day job. The amount of effort and time that you put into this kind of work determines how much money you’ll earn, but with that said it will take a while for your own website to make money. So, this is a great job to bring in a little extra cash, not replace your work.
Is This Job For Me?
If you lose track of time on the computer by getting easilydistracted with other blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc., I don’t recommend this job for you because of the large amount of time you waste when you could be making money.
