Are you that person who wants to earn from blogging? Are you somebody who wants make extra money from blogging? Do you want to be successful in blogging?
For years, I struggled to find ways to earn extra income while still employed. My salary was never enough. Then I discovered blogging that helped me earn an extra $100 per month and still keep my day job. Today I still generate income from my blogs. If you’d like to know more what blogging is, simply continue reading.
A blog (a truncation of weblog) is a discussion or informational site published over the Internet. It consists of posts that help your readers find answers to their questions. Your blog is an extension of you in the cyberspace.
It’s your journal and it is shared by everyone. What’s in it for you, anyway? What are the things that you need to know about your blog? Here are 5 things you should know.
1. Blogging is Easy and NOT Complicated
You are not required to be a professional writer. You don’t need to have a Master’s degree or even a Ph.D.!
Have you experienced talking with a friend and it seems like your conversation will take forever? When you use that strategy in blogging, you will be able to write a lot of posts!
Make blogging simple, make it easy. Talk to your readers as if you talk with them one-on-one and face to face.
2. Blogging is Freedom
You can express freely through blogging, just don’t leak confidential information, though!
In your blog, you can express freely your opinion on an idea. You can express freely what you advise people do. You can express freely your experience.
3. Blogging is Fun
What’s the point of blogging if you are not having fun? Blogging should be fun.
Remember when I told you that blog is an extension of yourself? If you’re not having fun blogging, you’re either not having fun with your life or you are not blogging the right topic.
Either way, as Desiderata would say, strive to be happy.
4. Blogging Offers You Potential Income
Though your blog can give you extra money per month, I still suggest you focus on sharing information because income will follow.
All of the successful bloggers whom I know and I admire make profit through their blog because they shared information first. Their first agenda is to share information and what they know then monetizing second.
If your primary agenda is to make money from your blog instead of sharing information, you are doing it all wrong! You will never be successful in blogging.
5. Blogging is Your Contribution to the World
Sharing information to the world is one of the biggest contributions that you can ever give in your lifetime.
Do you have a skill, a talent or an idea that you can share with everyone?
Sharing what you know is one of the noblest things that you can do. Who knows, through your blog, you can change someone’s life. Through your blog, you can save someone’s life. I believe you can influence someone, in your own way, to change one’s life.
Keep sharing. Keep contributing.
Your blog is an extension of who you are on the Internet. Share what you know first before making money from it. The more you share, the more people will flock your site. Naturally, income generated from your blog will increase.
Keep sharing, my friend.
