With recession rocking the boat and intermittent lay-offs and salary cuts – why not make some extra money through blogging. You need no special technical knowledge or literary abilities to start a blog. Here are ways in which you can earn money while blogging:
Pick a topic that you love
The basic rule of blogging is to choose a topic close to your heart. It’s best if you love something other people also love, such as sports, politics, or celebrities. Amar Upadaya, a programmer at a leading blogging website says," All blogs have the potential to create revenue, but the popular ones are those which are informative or related to one’s life experiences”.
BLOG TIP : Prithik Agarwal, who blogs at a google blogging website and earns a minimum of four figures per month, cautions against being overly narrow in focus. "Instead of picking a niche topic like diet tips, where there’s only little you can write on, pick a general way of looking at life or an area of interest that you’re passionate about," he says. Agarwal blogs on personal growth, which encompasses relationships, finances, career development, and spirituality. Successful bloggers always stick to the theory that "content is king". It holds particularly true if you hope to earn by blogging. Ensure that new content is contributed on a regular basis. And this can always be possible when the topic of your blog motivates you to write on a regular basis.
