How you make money from Blogging?
Have always said this several times that, there are many ways one can make money through blogging, this blogging is so broad. it a legit way to make money online and you can do so by doing what you love. you can work from home, at your own time, and the honest truth is there is no limit to how much you can make through this blogging.
The first thing i will like to say is , there are no get rich quick in this game, if you are looking for a fast way (get rich quick) by making money online, then am sorry to say , you are in the wrong place.
Don’t get too carried away with people using expensive cars, big houses, and other expensive stuffs. most of them is a scam and you will end up wasting your time paying for some trash courses or some training from those people, but do not get me wrong some of them are actually true and helpful but yeah most of them are scams.
Unlike many articles that says “make money online” , this is a different guide on how to make money at home in a legit way by sharing and blogging what you love doing best.
All of this blogging actually require some effort, the time you put into it, and some money to get started. To be honest with you, it won’t be easy at all with the whole writing of articles, trying to get the write audience, trying to make your blog popular and all that. but as long as you are willing to put more effort into it, you will definitely reap the reward.
To get started , i don’t want to waste our time here.
The first thing you will want to ask yourself is , what do i want to blog about ?
Many people still find it difficult to choose a nitche on what to blog about like entertainment, technology, news etc. those are called nicthe , you have to be more specific on what you are blogging about, you like a situation where by your blog is said to be known for sport and then when your visitors comes in, they will start seeing articles about how to cook , what do you think would happen next ? they will all leave and even people that like articles that are about how to will will still definitely, because now you are having different kind of articles that are combined together and it will get all your visitors confused and none will come back to your blog.
They is actually a way you can write about different articles and all of it will go well and no visitors will be so confused or would leave your blog and won’t come back and this can only happen if you categories your blog and also the name of the website. will give you better explanation on this.
For example: if your website name is healthcare.com, what do you think i will blog about ? obviously about health, either solution to a problem about health or news about health. now what if i post news about celebrities (entertainment) on the same website (healthcare.com) ? what will my audience think of ? a scam website ? a confused article writer? or is the person just posting all this to get good audience? and then different people will lose interest and they will stop returning to your blog and probably go somewhere else that actually give them better understanding and not just some confused post.
One need to be careful on what they post about so it wont get your audience confused, if you want to blog about different nitche, you can open a general website name for example: findwhatyoucanimagine.com i can decide to post everything we have in this world on that website but i will need to categories them, for example like this:
and so on, and then you will need to put a search bar which is very common on every website, because some of your audience might want to search what they need straight up! without going to the categories. and also design your home page to be user friendly, you wont want your audience to see different type of nitche on your home page, design it in a way whenever any kind of audience come in, they will want to keep reading till they click on the category that best suit their interest.
But the point here is that, if you want to blog on more than one nitche , you have to consider the name of your website, you can actually give it any name you like but stick to one nitche and keep blogging on it. Don’t just start posting some random articles that can spoil the whole blogging for you, just stick to your Nitche and yeah stick to what you like doing best.
How to start now???
Yeah after you have decided on what name to use for your website and what kind of content you will start posting about and am talking about your articles, so don’t be confused.
You will now need to create a website where your articles will be stored and where your readers can visit to read and understand , and also to learn. It is very important you post about something that actually teaches people or make people happy, because the more they see the value of your website. the more engagement and the better for you.
you can get a website from different host like the common one i know:

< , you can start for free and keep blogging on till you can afford to get a domain name , which is your website name.
Most of the website allow you to start for free and they will also add their website name after your own website name . for example if you get a free domain from WordPress, it will be your-domain-name.wordpress.com, this will allow you post your article and still do what you need to do as the normal domain will be but, it doesn’t look professional and people wont trust you because it a free domain name gotten from WordPress.
if you still have issues to purchase a domain name and i truly understand not everyone can afford to get it, now have made it easier for everyone. do you know you can actually get a domain name for free? yes you can and you can also have it forever, all you need to do is renew your domain name every 12 month.

< to read about how to monetize your Blog.
But not withstanding , will go through some other ways you can earn cool cash from blogging.
-Affiliate marketing : this is when you kind of recommend a product to your audience using some tracking code to your blog and get some kind of commission when someone click on the product .
For example , when you help a friend open a bank from your bank branch they are usually give you some kind of bonus or percent of money and this goes to blogging too.
you can find some product to promote from:
Once you have selected the product to promote then you integrate their link to your blog.
You can even apply for Google adsense
and get approved. Learn more about Googleadsense >HERE<
– Sell sponsored Blog post: There some Bloggers who don’t like displaying ads to their audience , some feel it really annoying to show ads to their audience because those ads actually piss some people off and i will be so honest to you, its so true , because there are times you try to read what you have always enjoyed and then ads keep popping out of nowhere. Those kind of ads are not good for your audience and if you properly place your ads to the right place, your audience wont be so worried about it.
Back to the sponsored post, this sponsorship works just like a Tv show or a sport, or some other industries. So basically, a company pays you to represent their own company , and you talk about their company and promote the company to your own readers which is your audience.
When publishing a sponsored post, it is crucial to know about the laws in your area or country about disclosure. Like in the United State, if you are a blogger and you are publishing sponsored post, must comply with the FTC’s Endorsement Guides.
-Get paid to write reviews; Just like the sponsored post i have explained above, but this is a bit different. But in this case, you will get to try out people’s product that are related to your own nitche , you see why i said stay with one nitche and stop Blogging outside your nitche. so basically , you get paid for making reviews to people product which kind of have the same nitche as yours and the process of doing this can be similar to sponsored post and you will want to review products that are relevant to your nitche that your readers will find interest in.
– Create a restricted members only content : Your readers are your huge fan and may be willing to pay you to read more of your work. You can create a members only area for them to share more blog post, downloads, videos, audios and so more. Membership sites can be a big time investment because you must continually create a premium content for your paying members.
-Create a private forum: Another way for creating a paid membership site to to create a private forum for your readers and they must pay to get access to this forum. forums are always the best way for your audience to get one on one advice from you and also other forum members can interact with each other, share idea and so on.
