Do You Get Paid To Blog

So how about you, do you get paid to blog? Many bloggers are now realising that you can combine pleasure with a little business on the side. Blogging, for many is still only a hobby - done whenever they have a spare hour or so. For the rest of us, blogging has become a large part of earning some extra cash.

This is a short blog post to demonstrate how simple it is to earn money blogging, by using targeted words, terms and phrases.

Obviously, your blog has to meet certain criteria. Many paid-to-blog sites demand some or all of the following: You have to have regular, good-quality posts. They have to be in English and not only exist for paid blogging. This means that at least half your posts have to be articles (pictures) etc, for which you haven't been paid. 

Of course, the higher your Google and Alexa ranking, the better opportunities will come your way. This is why it behoves us bloggers to do all we can to make our sites the best we can. Quality posts, backlinks, and appropriate sharing on social networking sites, all contribute towards higher ranking. 

What to expect
You first of all have to submit your blogs to see if they qualify. Blogvertise, Blog To Profit, Tomoson Reviews, Share A Sale, etc, are only a handful of sites which pay you for links, reviews or articles placed on your blogs. Some are smaller and pay less than others. The larger, higher paying sites expect you to have a very high-ranking blog with several subscribers, so it's best to build up from the bottom. You will also have to have a disclosure page somewhere on your blog, stating that some of your posts, though your words and views, are sponsored ones. 
Some sites pay for blogging around a particular post while some pay for linking words or phrases in your own post of your choice. There are local opportunities and International ones. For example there are links relating to the South West of England (where I live). If I looked hard enough I could find link opportunities for something as specific as  South Devon Cottages. Alternatively I could choose to blog about something more general like romance books or kindles.

Who can't use some funds to help stretch an already tight budget? I do wonder about the ads I just added recently, thinking they are a bit much and I may want to delete some. I don't think anyone wants their blog to look like the classifieds. lol

An inspirational post for bloggers. As Judy said we could use a little ice cream money for treats now and then.

I looked into AdSense but didn't like that the security had to be lowered and I got virus warnings too. I gave up and use Amazon widgets instead.

It is good to make some extra money now and then. Keeping the blog going though is hard work.

We monetize our blog to help a child in VN. It's not a lot, but it will do for now..A little helps when you have nothing.

Thanks, guys. I don't know if we'll ever be able to retire on it, but for some of us bloggers, the little extra money comes in handy. It's also an encouragement to keep going too.
