  1. Blogging is a very common thing nowadays. I’ve understood that it is a good way to make an income, but how do you do that?

    • Hello Anna,

      Sorry for the delay in responding. As you said, blogging can be a great way to make income. Your question about the best way to monetize it though doesn’t have a single correct answer. Some people just write posts for other sites that pay well. By the way, Sophie has updated her list and now has an Ultimate List of Better-Paid Blog Gigs 2015. You can download it along with several other useful things here.

      Affiliate marketing and Google AdSense are two other common methods. I don’t have any experience with Google AdSense, though I know people do use it effectively. Affiliate marketing can be quite profitable if done correctly. Essentially you promote other peoples’ products on your site and then when readers buy those products through the link on your site, you get a commission.

      Ideally, you have blog/site on a topic that you enjoy, are knowledgeable about and can help people with. You gain readers’ trust by providing a lot of useful content and answering questions to solve problems they have. Then you can write reviews and other articles on your site that naturally include your affiliate links – when people trust your information and click on those links to buy the related product, you get a commission. The reader doesn’t pay more either way – if they click on your affiliate link, you get a commission and if they click on a direct link the affiliate company gets the whole amount.

      This is a very simplified explanation. If you want a bit more detailed information about affiliate programs, what they are, etc. you can read this post. And if you are interested in actually learning an effective method to do affiliate marketing, you can check out this course. [This is an affiliate link by the way! See how they can naturally be brought into your writing. :D] I have taken this course, and though I thought I knew a lot about affiliate marketing, I learned many more useful tips.

      I don’t know if this is the kind of information you were looking for. If not, just keep asking. 🙂

    • Personally I liked the fact that the list has so many different options – whether you have knowledge in technology or homemaking, there are opportunities!
