Blogging is very lucrative and so many bloggers like +Linda Ikeji has been able to buy a car, build a house from blogging alone, and that’s why they are so many blogs online today because everybody wants to take advantage of it and start earning a living from it.
I will show you how to start making money blogging, but before I start let me explain what the word blogging means so that I can carry everybody along.
What is a blog? A blog is a website where an individual or group of people write articles and publish for other people to read. Blogging is the act of writing articles and publishing on your blog for people to read and maybe post their comments. So it’s all about writing about your thoughts and anything that interests you. With this little explanation, am sure you know now what blogging is all about.
I need money-How do I start blogging?
Yes, I need money! Am in a hurry right now and all I want is jump into blogging right now and give it a try. It does not work like that. Rome was not built in a day. There are some few questions you need to ask yourself before you start blogging and those questions are: can you write articles? Do you enjoy writing article? And if the answer is yes the next question is: what do you like writing about? Because you have to enjoy whatsoever you are doing before you can really succeed in it.
Once you are done answering those questions and you are sincerely ready to start blogging, all you have to do is to choose a blogging platform e.g. www.blogger.com or wordpress and create a blog with a good template of your choice. Write good articles but don’t ever copy people’s articles because it will affect your success. Once you have written up to 30 articles we can now go to the next stage, which is monetizing you blog so that you can start making money from it.

But don’t ever ask your blog readers to click on your ads.

After setting up ads on your blog the next thing to do is to draw traffic to your blog. Traffic is very important if you really need money from your blog. There are so many ways to get traffic but the best source of traffic is through search engines, also known as organic traffic.
