Everyone wants to make money doing something that they enjoy. Bloggers are no different. Anyone that has taken the time to build a blog and then contribute to that blog on a regular basis would love to find a way to make money using that blog. There is good news and there is bad news.
The Good News
Anyone can make money off of a blog – the amount of money will depend on the blog subject, the internet interest, the advertising dollars available and the determination of the blogger.
The Bad News
Making money from a blog is just like any other business. It will take work, energy or the luck of being in just the right place at the right time (although even those people know the market and how it works so that the can BE in the right place at the right time).
The Bottom Line
Monetizing a blog develops from different directions. Understanding more about your own needs and desires will help determine those directions.
