Become a Paid Blogger

Blogging is one of the easiest and most casual styles of writing on the net. It can be about anything of personal interest, a particular theme, or just random ramblings, and chances are that over time a dedicated audience will grow to bring in a paycheck for the hobby blogger. The best news of all is that there are blog sites who will pay per post, plus traffic bonuses, and no experience is necessary.


Difficulty: Easy
Follow the link in the resource section of this article to start blogging at "Today." The organization is a linked network of blogs that are designed to give everyone a voice who wishes to be heard as well as a forum to communicate, trade blogging tips, and comment on fellow blogger's pages to increase traffic to your own.

Use the template to customize the direction and style of the blog. "Today" provides this template for all users so that "Today" blogs will be recognized above and beyond the mass of existing blogs already available. This step will involve making a decision on a content theme so that viewers will know what to expect and have a reason to come back to view more posts. Keep in mind that the more popular a theme is, the more viewers the blog will attract, so go for a theme that seems interesting and will be fun to write about.

Market your blog to increase the blogging paycheck. "Today" pays its bloggers by the post as well as by the amount of traffic the blog receives, so the amount paid can continually go up according to the amount of time spent marketing the blog. This is much easier than it sounds, and usually involves posting on other blogs with a link to your own blog, telling people about it in internet forums and chat rooms, and even emailing friends to see if they want to check it out.
