Blogging can easily become a full time job. There are many power blogs that can earn the writer a great living and provide readers with some great information. Many bloggers don't even write the articles themselves but rather hire out other writers to do the writing.
Building a social relationship by blogging allows the blogger to interact with readers and find out more what the readers are looking for.
Comments are sometimes allowed on blogs. This is a great way for the blogger to communicate with readers. Readers can comment on whether or not they like the articles, they can suggest ideas to the blogger and they can share their own information.
Blogging can provide a great way for families to stay in touch. A mommy blog is a great way for a new mom to share her concerns about her child and share information she's learned as well. Grandma and grandpa can read updates and other relatives can read them as well.
Blogs can be private or open to anyone. Controlling the readership is great when running a family blog that one may wish to keep a bit more private.
Revenue can be earned via blogging through ads that are placed on the blogs. There are many great sources to find these ads and most of them you can pick and choose what sort of ad you wish to allow on your blog.
Many bloggers use back links to link to other blogs or articles they've written. These links will point the reader to more similar content and allow the blogger to earn even more money via page views on their blogs.
You can focus on just about any topic on a blog. You could do a travel blog of everywhere you've been. You could do a pictorial blog on pictures of where you've been. Adding in ads that will encourage your visitors to visit such places such as travel agencies, hotels, car rentals and the like will enhance your blog and possibly earn you some extra money when readers click on these ads to secure travel, hotel or a car.
Scheduling your blog posts will save you a lot of time. You may find that you have a free afternoon and can schedule up to six months in advance. Blog away during this time and see how much you can get scheduled in. You'll free up a lot of time this way and be able to spend your time on another project that can also earn you money.
Don't put all your eggs in one basket, if you have one good blog, make another. When that one is also up and running, make yet another. Continue in this fashion until you have several that are earning you some money.
Blogging is a great work from home idea that has mushroomed over the last decade. Anyone can capitalize on it and begin earning some money working from home. All it takes is a great idea and the dedication.
