What is a blog? Wikipedia said that a blog is a type of website usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

While most people enjoy reading blogs, there are few people who think they can become bloggers themselves. It's time to put that thinking aside because anyone can run a successful blog! One of the major hang-ups is that some people don't like to write. If you find this is a problem for you, it can feel like getting your blog started is hopeless. The good news is that you don't have to be Mark Twain to write good content. People care less about how you say it and more about what you're actually saying. It also helps that content is generally expected to be short and to the point on the web. People are so busy these days that breaking your text into small paragraphs and bullet points is ideal. That makes your life easier as well!Another hang-up you might have is that you don't consider yourself to be an expert on any one topic. Once again, you can easily overcome this. The way that people go from being in the dark to being an expert is by researching! Research your topic and start writing about it and you'll be an expert soon enough.

Now that you know you CAN start your own blog, it's helpful to know how you can cash in! Basically, people are always looking for information on the web. There are also always people who are buying things online. You're going to attract people with the things you write, and set your blog up so that you can entice them to buy things they are interested in. It's a great way to make money!Your first step needs to be picking a topic that will be a good money-maker for you. Look to see if there are ads and products readily available. You should also try to narrow your topic down so it's easier for people to find you. For example, instead of "weight loss" you might write about "weight loss for first time moms." Narrowing things down is helpful for you and your blog visitors!

There are six ways that i know how to earch cash with your blog. They are :

  1. Cost-Per-Click (CPC) Advertising Programs
    CPC advertising programs are the best money making programs for most of the bloggers. They are suitable to all kind of blogs with family-friendly content regardless of their traffic level and age. CPC programs work well on blog because they display contextual ads that are highly relevant to blogs content and bloggers will earn anywhere between 10 cents to 50 cents for each contextual ads click by their visitors. With proper CPC ads optimization and consistent amount of traffic, a blogger can earn a steady amount of money displaying CPC ads on his/her blog. Google AdSense is no doubt, the undisputed king of CPC advertising programs and Yahoo Publisher Network is the closest alternative of AdSense.
  2. Cost-Per-Action (CPA) Advertising Programs
    CPA programs is quite similar to CPC programs except CPA programs don't pay bloggers for each click on the CPA ads hosted by bloggers. The blogger only makes money when the visitor takes an action on the CPA advertiser website. The action can be a sign up, making a purchase, generating a lead, downloading a product and more. CPA networks pay a lot more than CPC programs, for a visitor sent by the blogger from his/her blog to a CPA advertiser website and the visitor taken an action on the advertiser site, the blogger can earn few dollar to fifty dollar depend on the niche. But CPA ads tend to work well on large traffic blogs only. AzoogleAds.com, Commission Junction and Advertising.com are some of the largest CPA networks.
  3. Promote Affiliate Programs
    Marketing affiliate programs is very common nowadays. You sign up with affiliate program of an online company, then decide whether to use the company's text link or banner ads on your blog to promote the company's products or services and earn affiliate commission when a visitor make a purchase through your affiliate link. Affiliate programs can be promoted without a website and blog too.
  4. Pay Per Post Programs
    Pay per post programs started last year. The programs pay bloggers to write a blog post about a sponsor's website. The paid blog post can be a review or an introduction on the advertiser's website, products or services. The blogger will be paid a least $5 for each sponsor post. Blogs that have massive traffic, high Google PR and large number of subscribers can charge a few hundred dollar for just writing one sponsor post. The downside of pay per post is that writing too many sponsor posts that are not relevant to your blog content can seriously affect your traffic.
  5. Sell Text Link Ads
    Selling text links on your blog can be a great source of additional online revenue. It is not difficult to get started, just go to Text-link-ads.com to sign up an account, then decide which part of your pages you want to display paid text links, set your price and you are ready to take order. Text-link-ads.com will handle all the promotional works. Another company that offers the similar services as Text-link-ads.com is Reverselinks.com
  6. Hosting Web Poll
    Vizu Answer offers a pretty new way to monetize your blog's and website's traffic. The pays the publishers on a cost-per-thousand impression (CPM) basis for hosting targeted web poll.
