Blogging is a great hobby, but you can actually make money from it too. Earning money by blogging is quick and simple and anyone can do it. You don’t even need awesome writing skills, just some enthusiasm and expertise on a particular topic.

There are two ways that you can make money from blogging. The second method is easier to get quick money, but the first method is more effective if you want more longer term success.

1) Get Paid From Your Own Blog

To do this requires setting up your own blog. The theory is that you will create a blog about a very specific niche that you are interested in. You need to choose a topic that you can actually write about. Don’t just pick niches that might payoff better, because if they are dull, you will neglect it anyway.

Your blog needs energy and enthusiasm. You can only do this when you are writing about something you are passionate about. Some writers can pull this off in any niche, but I can tell you that it’s hard work writing about boring topics.

OK, so once you choose a topic, you need to get your blog started. You can either buy your own domain name and setup a blog or use a free service such as blogger.com. Starting out with Blogger is recommended because it’s so easy. You just sign up, select a blog name and you can start writing immediately. If you go with your own domain name, you will also need to buy hosting (around $5/month) and you will need to install blog software, such as WordPress (free).

Once your blog is setup, the goal is awesome content. Don’t worry about monetizing the blog too early. That will come later. First you need to build up the content and the user base. Once you have a strong user base, then you can look into the monetization options. You can find out about blog monetization here.

Once you get your blog established, try to build relationships with other bloggers in similar niches. This can help boost your exposure and traffic. The more links that you get into your site, the better.

2) Get Paid to Write Blogs for Others

If you want to get paid for your blog posts, the quickest way to do this is posting for others or writing blog content for websites. In most cases the content will be sold and then syndicated to one or more blogs. The content will most likely not be tagged as yours and you won’t be able to build your own name using this technique.

It is possible to earn great money doing this. I know of many part-time writers that are earning a few thousand per month by writing for others. They usually have their own blog too, from which they earn another few thousand. You can make anywhere from $5-50 per blog post. This can start adding up, especially if you are doing 20-30 blog articles per day.
