5 Easy Ways to Make Money Blogging

A few weeks ago I shared my biggest lesson learned from BBC Charlotte. That led to a lot of the same questions asked in the comments…how do you make money blogging?

Making money blogging was not something that I intended for in the beginning. After the first year of blogging that changed dramatically, I started making a little change from the blog. At first I used to think that only experienced, well known bloggers make money, I am here to tell you that is a myth. Brands are looking for all sized blogs and they are paying them too. I am proof.

So how does all this happen? Glad you asked.

    “Brands are looking for all sized blogs and they are paying them too.”

    I honestly do not believe this. I’m a small blog and my stats are by no means impressive. I’ve applied to multiple campaigns that I would have been perfect for and never got selected for anything. They want numbers, not quality writing. No numbers, no campaign.

    • Kim,

      When I initially started blogging, one thing I did to start out was do product reviews on things I personally bought. I’d contact the company, ask them if it was okay and sometimes they’d allow me to do a giveaway along with the review.

      After a few of those my numbers started building up and that’s when I was able to slowly get involved with campaigns 🙂

    Self syndicate your content! There are sites like Zimbio, where you can post part of an article with a read more hyperlink at the end that can drive traffic to your site. Why? Because people want to read the rest of the article.
