How Bloggers Make Money Online

10 Ways to Make Money Blogging

One of the main goals for a lot of new bloggers is to eventually make some money at it. As of now, monetizing Life Destiny is not a current goal, however, it is on the radar. I do feel that Life Destiny has already given me back more than money ever could in my enjoyment, passion, friendships, networks, and what I have learned so far.

One of my classes here at Penn State University is focused on social informatics, which is the study of information and communication tools in cultural, or
institutional
contexts (Kling, Rosenbaum, & Sawyer, 2005). I recently, did a presentation on how bloggers make money and decided to upload the PowerPoint slides of my presentation with some audio to accompany it. For the most part, it is a complete look at how bloggers can monetize their blog either directly or indirectly. Enjoy

Direct Monetization of Blogs

  • Ads
  • Affiliate Programs
  • Donations
  • Merchandise
  • Subscription Based Services

Indirect Monetization of Blogs

  • Freelance Writing/Blogging
  • Consulting Services
  • Employment Opportunities/Networking
  • Selling e-Resources
  • Speaking Gigs
  • Book Deals

Do not forget the essentials of blogging such as having a passion for what your writing about, thinking of your reader when you are writing your content, and building a following around a niche community.

      Hey thanks for stopping by Karen!

      Passion seems to be the most important in everything you do in life. Life, business, studies, etc..all should be built around your passions. If they aren't who are you living for?
