As stated it is easier said than done and can take a lot of your time optimizing your blog for the search engines and choosing the right keywords to draw in traffic.
So one needs to seriously consider the time and effort it will take before heading down this path.

Just Make Money
If you are going to generate any income from your blog then make sure you do exactly that.
For instance, if you're going to earn AdSense revenue don't go putting up a small a square that no one can see, go for the limit of AdSense ads you can use and make sure they are seen.
If your going to sell products then by jolly make sure they see the product as well as a well-written article, your intentions are to make money, so make it so.
Don't muck around, you are in the business to make money not pleasing people, if you want to do that than go social and join facebook or something.
Is everyone cut out for this type of business... to make money online? well no, not everyone is, depending on the amount of time you can commit to your blog.
If you're still working part-time than it will be a lot harder, of course on the other hand if you can commit full time to this business than the likely hood of earning enough money to pay your bills and reach your financial goals becomes very realistic indeed.
The old saying time is money stands true. And the time you commit to blogging will see results if you just keep doing what your doing and stop wasting time looking for information online when you should be spending time on optimizing your blog.
If you want to know how to make money online with a blog then I suggest that you take a look at Grizz's blog, "make money online for beginners". It has a gold mine full of information.
