OK, let get started.
I know you have many things going through your mind that are stopping you from getting started. Let go through some popular thoughts people have.
'I do not like to write or I'm not god at it'. Here's the good news, you really do not have to be a good writer to operate a wild successful blog. People do not care how you write it but more what your actually saying. As long as it makes sense and its easy to go through you wont have a problem.
Another tip that help with you with this obstacle is writing in short paragraphs, people do not want to go through massive slabs of information, so firstly keep your content short and sweet as well in short short to read paragraphs. (just like the article your reading right now!)
Here's a good one: 'I'm not an expert on any topics'. Guess what? You do not need to be, were in the 21st century and researching almost anything is a piece of cake – especially with the net. So start researching and looking at other blogs and articles in your chosen topic.
Do enough of this, and over time you certainly will be an expert. But do not wait for that day, get started now, you can start posting just on the little things you learn from your research. And make sure you have some authority and write / talk like you know what your talking about.
OK, so now you should be pretty confident that you can start a blog, and produce content on it. This goes for any niche. Now we need to figure out how we can make money from it.
The first step comes before you even start your blog. When choosing your blog topic or niche you need to make sure there is a strong market for the information. Hunt around on the net and see if there are lots of products and advertisements relevant to your niche.
Because the reality is, if people are advertising then there is money to be made. An easy way to do this is to do a Google search, if there are ads for your main keyword then there is money to be made there.
Once you've decided on your niche, you can run AdSense on it which is Google ads, I'm sure you've seen them on many websites before. Or you can put banners on your blog, the opportunities are endless.
Especially when people start to see you as an authority, that's when you can really make the big bucks, because they'll take your recommendations seriously when you promote different products. Of course you want to give them good valuable stuff that's actually going to help them because if you do not you'll get a bad rep and you do not want that.
So that's a basic overview of how you can make money from a blog. I hope you found it useful. Now go out there and start blogging!
