The idea of making money online is very alluring, even if you have no idea how to do it. Just the thought of having your own website and earning money from it can be very appealing.

But what if you want to make money online but you don’t have any skills, time or money?

What should you do then?

If this is the case then you need to keep things as simple as possible and don’t try and re-invent the wheel. Just use what’s fast, what’s already available and what’s free.

And the easiest way to do this is with a free blog.

You can sign up for a free blog from, but this needs a bit of technical skill to change the appearance of the blog. You also can’t place ads on it. So it’s easier (in my humble yet spookily accurate opinion) and more profitable to set up a blog.

Blogger is owned by Google and has a really easy-to-use dashboard that allows you to change the appearance of your blog. You don’t need to know anything about creating websites because Blogger has a simple dashboard that’s aimed specifically at people who have no website building skills whatsoever.

Blogger is free to use and once you sign in to your account you’re taken straight to your dashboard so you can start writing posts immediately and upload them in one click.

And because Blogger is owned by Google, they are more than happy to let you place Google AdSense ads on your blog, and this can be one right from inside your dashboard.

AdSense ads are the easiest way to earn money from any website.

These ads are known as Pay Per Click advertising which means that you earn money (a few cents to a few dollars) every time someone clicks on one of your ads.

AdSense ads are automatically added to every page of your blog so you just have to keep writing and uploading. The more pages you have on your blog, the more ads you’ll have too so there’s more chance of earning money.

You can get more visitors to your blog by submitting free articles, that contain a link back to your site, to article directories such as You can also submit articles to too (or both).

Many people have built successful online businesses and monetized their sites purely with AdSense ads. You can listen to an MP3 interview with one such person who did this very successfully at

So if you have no skill, time or money and you want to have your own website, check out and start writing and earning money today.

      No. Blogger is not like HubPages. Blogger is your own blog, not an article bank like HubPages.

      It sounds like HubPages - except HubPages makes it easier to generate traffic, since it already has a lit of members.
