The following post originally came out in one of my other blogs, “Blog. Blogger. Bloggest!”. Check out the rest of that blog for more insights on the world of blogs and blogging. Particularly useful for you who are just starting to blog, and those wanting to build better blogs. Enjoy!
If you’ve been spending a great deal of time online, you’ve already probably checked out a couple of sites that suggest that you can make money just by blogging.
Or answering surveys, or clicking ads, or signing up for some service, etc. Those don’t quite appeal to me as much as blogging (sorry guys)- and face it, once you get into the groove, you can easily spend a good number of hours blogging, lurking, emailing and jumping from one site to another.
In any case, if you’re the type who spends so much time online, you might as well make some money out of it. Like I mentioned, there are lots of sites out there that can help you out (like this one that I just stumbled onto– http://www.johnchow.com), or -on the flipside- confound you even more.
It would be great if you unlocked the secrets to making money online on the get-go. But the truth of the matter is, it will take a great deal of trial-and-error to get things right.
I suggest you take time to get your friends together and learn it all at the same time. Join some online forums, look for other groups who are as into it as you are. The point is, you’d want to share your experiences and what you know with them, so you too can learn from what they’ve been up to as well.
One of the reasons why some friends of mine have decided to put up a small events group– for the purpose of helping other online entrepreneurs hook up with other like-minded individuals, so we can all learn from each other, support each other and have a great time while we’re at it.
I’ll be looking into these things more, and once I got something useful, you can expect it to be posted here in the near future.
