Learn to blog by making money online. The title should be different. It should be “learn to blog then make money online.” Thats not the case. Making money online is not about your blogging skills. Being a great blogger has nothing to do with making a lot of money online. Look at the big money makers online. They are not good bloggers. In fact most of those guys suck at blogging.
I think it’s good to learn by trial and error. It really is the best way to learn. I say, jump in and see what happens. When i was a little kid, i was scared of the water. I don’t know why. It was blue. It was cold. One day i was cautiously walking along side the pool when, my cousin just pushed me into the water. It was a mean thing to do, even criminal, but guess what i learned how to swim that day. Im not suggesting that you should throw little kids into the water. Im using that as an analogy for blogging. Even if it seems unlike, you will make money online if you just make the jump. I can’t promise you riches, but i can guarantee starbucks money. If you get good, you could probably make your monthly car and insurance payments with your blog income.
Isn’t that cool? It’ll be a hobby that pays. If you don’t know anything about blogging, you might be hesitant to make the jump. But, i’m telling you, you have to jump to learn how to swim. You have to say “fuck it” and try. If you fail, it’ll only be because you quit without giving it much effort. Even if you end up quiting, you won’t be out a lot of money.
Domain names costs anywhere from 1 dollar to 10 dollars a year to register. You can get hosting for under 10 dollars a month. If you’re a cheap bastard, then you can go the free hosting route. Check out blogspot or wordpress and try to monetize quickly. We know that that money is a huge driving force. If you try to blog without money, you’ll probably be like most and just quit. But if you set up your blog and make a quick sale, or if you get paid for one of your posts, then that payment will make you not quit. Even if the payment was for 5 bucks, it’ll open your eyes to the potential of online income. That’s why i think you should “learn how to blog by making money online.” Not, “learn how to blog and then years later make money online.”
