Where to start.

There are many great ways to make money by blogging. You have a message that you enjoy sharing with others. . . Why not get paid for it? All of us have individual areas of interest, hobbies, pass-times. With a little help and some hard work, you can interact with others that enjoy the same interests. While the income potential in any venture is dependent on a number of factors, these are the things that will set you on the path to making money.

1. Personal Knowledge on a topic.

2. Some guidance by those that have done similar things.

3. Creativity! Break yourself out of that little box of personal and societal expectations!

4. Hard Work and Determination! Ultimately, this is usually the greatest ingredient for success.


What you need beside Writing Skills

Writing is a great hobby, but it can be more than that.  You can make money by writing.  But there are a number of skills you will need to learn that are completely unrelated to writing.
•    You will need to learn how to do keyword research and create incoming links to your sites.  This allows you to find out what searches are people already doing.  If you chose a topic and title for you article that fits these niches, you are more likely to get traffic sooner.
•    There are things you do not know and find some one you can trust to ask about where you are going wrong.  A great place to go in this area is  He offers free advice and training.
•    Diversify!  When it comes to making money, you want to keep things simple enough for you to not be overwhelmed.  But you want to branch in as many logical ways that you can.  If you offer a service to others, find as many different clients as possible.  If you are an affiliate marketer, find as many different affiliate programs as possible.  If you are making money with Google Adsense, find as many different, unrelated niches as possible.  If you are a writer, write about as many different subjects as you can.  You will be surprised which articles get a response.
•    There is a bit of providence, luck, or coincidence (whichever you believe in) that plays a role here.  Be aware that even if you do things right, it is still possible to fail.  The best skill to have to avoid failure is just keep going.  Just keep plugging away.  Keep on trucking.  Keep on blogging.  Victory goes to the persistent.
•    Find as many ways to make incoming links, back links, to your site as possible.  Publish a link to your site as many places as will allow you.
