Blogging is quite a popular thing. Some individuals do it on their website as a journal. Others use their blogs to promote products or to update individuals on what is new and incoming. That is the case of Michael, an up and coming web designer who is in the market of selling sports related equipment. This is what he did to make his blog, well, a money generator for him.

Michael is good at website design but he didn't really know much about blogging. He soon found out it was much more than just the everyday diary that individuals liked to label it. He spent much of his time learning about the right programs to use for it and then determined to make something out of this new found tool, decided to incorporate it into his website design. He had heard from friends that this was a good way to make additional income on his website. Since the site was only doing okay, he thought that it couldn't hurt.

The first thing that he did was tap into Google Adsense. He already knew how it worked and he knew it was a money maker. He linked his blog into it (Google Adsense would then deliver ads to his blog that were specific to the blog's content). When individuals who were reading his blog decided to click on one of the ads, well, he would make a little bit of profit off of it. Now, in order for this product to work, he knew he needed to keep the blog updated.

To keep it updated, he made sure to log information there daily. It took him minutes to get online, type out what he did that day and most of the time talk about what his favorite fishing pole was and how great it was to have it.
