How To Blog For Money

Setting up a blog is quite easy nowadays and companies such as WordPress can provide you with thousands of themes (designs) to choose from.

WordPress also has a considerable number of plugins that will make your blog much more attractive and easier to promote and make money from.

There are plugins that can help you monetise your blog with products from such sites as eBay and Amazon.

There are also themes that will provide you with sidebars on your site where you can advertise products, mailing lists and special offers.

These can be changed on a regular or random basis or stay constant for the whole of the site.

Slightly more advanced techniques are adding your own banners or contextual links (like that one) that point to your own "money site"...

...or to somebody else's website.

Most "newbies" will prefer to link to a site or product run by somebody else in exchange for commissions.

Product creation can take time and effort but promoting a popular product can be very quick and easy...
