Aug 17, 2007
The statistic is really staggering. Only one percent of those who start a bog succeed to monetize the site. However, the good news is those who did succeed as bloggers are able to earn enough money to live comfortable while working in the comforts of their home. In fact, there are a number of bloggers out there that are earning a good five digit income a year. The truth is that blogging can be a very lucrative online home business if and only if you have the talent and the right attitude towards your business.

What makes other fail while others succeed? Successful bloggers invested a lot of time, efforts and talents into their site. They believe that writing a blog is not just a hobby that they can do during their spare time but rather something that should be taken seriously. In other words, blogging is not just about writing something, it about writing something interesting for the readers. To become a successful bloggers must anticipate what his or her readers want to read. They must know how to hold the interest of their readers. Once a blogger gets the attention of his or her readers, there is a big chance that these readers will keep coming back to read more of what the blogger has to say. As the traffic to the site increases, there is now a high potential to earn money through the site.

Monetizing your blog

Some writers feel rather strongly about putting ads on their blog. These writers believe that having all those icons, banners and logo all over their site is taboo. Sure, nobody really wants to put so many ads on their site but the thing is advertisements bring in the money. If your site has huge traffic and you want to monetize your blog, you must be prepared to set aside some space for your advertisers. You must design your site in such a way that it will be easy for advertisers to put up their logo. A word of caution though, you must not put too many advertisements in your site otherwise your site will become too crowded and difficult to navigate. Most readers would shy away from blogs that are difficult to navigate and if you lose your readers, you will lose your income. Most online advertisers pay the site owners according to the number of views or clicks make on their ads. If the traffic to your site decreases, naturally, your income will be affected.

Another way of earning money through your blog is through affiliate programs. Choose an affiliate program that is relevant to the contents of your bog. For instance, if your blog is all about children and parenting, it would be wise to join affiliate programs that are selling products for children.
