5 Tips To Make Money By Writing Blogs

First find out if your niche has a market and if it has, do research on the specifics of the niche. Here are some fields that are doing well in today's market

2. Passion and Interest count more than expertise

Do not worry if you are not an expert in your area of interest. What you need is a strong passion and interest which will eventually make you an expert. Don't expect immediate results, give it some time and you will find money trickling, even though initially it may be in small amounts. You can start out by reading articles in ezinearticles, goarticle and articlecity and use the same articles that you thought were most useful giving full credit to the original author and specifying the relevant details in your blog.

3. Google Adsense

Place google adsense on your blogs. This is another way of generating revenue. Avoid going for Google Adsense banners as research has shown that they are consistently overlooked by the viewers. Make sure that you ad blends well with your blog layout.

4. Advertise your blog to friends and relevant networks

A good way to advertise your blog may be to simply send an email with your blog link to your friends and colleagues.
