Blogging money for students
One way that is obvious to some people but completely overlooked by others is the fact that blogging money is there for the taking. And you don't need to be a professional blogger to take it.
In fact sometimes it helps if you're not a professional blogger - at least not the wrong kind of professional blogger.
Most people know the story of how WalMart got busted trying to create a fake pro-walmart blog. It just doesn't work. Transparency is key on the web and besides as Abraham Lincoln once said:
"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."
And once you hit that one person you don't fool, many times you are done for...especially if you are already a big, big target.
Do you need a blogging guide?
This doesn't mean you don't need a good blogging guide. There are many popular systems that have come out recently. Such guides can pay for themselves quickly in the increased traffic and profits you get by applying their techniques.
But you should never forget the experience of the "flogs" (fake blogs) when pursuing your blogging money ventures. Stay true to your personality, use a blogging disclosure policy and most of all don't lie or even stretch the truth to make a profit - you don't need to and eventually people will see right through you as this Bloggers Payday review reveals.
Understanding Pay Per Post
If you are up with current events you probably have heard the term pay per post and may have also heard of the controversy that came out of the promotional technique about a year ago. After all, how could someone being paid give an unbiased opinion?
The blogging community responded quickly and intelligently and actually raised the ethical bar for many other promotional techniques - especially for affiliate marketing. Many affiliates are now moving to or at least figuring out an appropriate affiliate disclosure policy for their websites.
But the point of all this is that you should know that while an apparent conflict exists you can get past it and still earn money by using your moral compass and an easy-to-understand disclosure policy on your blog.
In fact you can generate a disclosure policy for your blog using the blog policy disclosure generator provided at DisclosurePolicy.org.
