Blogging For Money

            The term “blog” is the short form of web-log. Blogs started off as an online application. It allowed blog users to write about their day’s activities, personal thoughts and opinions and shared their views. The blog’s mass appeal grew quickly and soon there are hundreds of people blogging for money. Blogs are unlike websites in that contents are uploaded in real time. Websites take a lot of time and energy to complete.

            Since blogs are a venue for the blogger to tell their personal stories, and posts are uploaded in real time, readers began following the blogs of their families and friends. Soon, people also started following the blog activities of other writers whose style of writing simply appealed to them. They also began following writers with interesting subjects. Blogs allow instant information to flow freely between the writer and the reader, or between a company and their customers. Sometimes, people even follow the blogs of interesting writers just to see what kind of conflict they may be in!

            That shows just some of the social features of blogs, but at this time, the journal or diary aspect of a blog is no longer the only reason for people to start blogs. Blogging for money is now one of the primary reasons why people start their blogs. Blog creation is relatively easy and it is a very inexpensive way to make yourself known online. People who offer a service, large companies and small business are now creating their own blogs to inform people of their services and their products. Even more people are making money blogging about what interests them the most.

            There are several free blogging platforms that can be made use of. However, their formats can be limiting if one wants to earn income online. Free blog platforms can destroy your blogs without notice and all the hard work you put in can be gone just like that. This is why many people decide to pay for their own hosting. Initially, it is difficult to set up. Once the blog is up and running, it is very easy to maintain. Paying for hosting also gives the blogger more leeway in creating his own blog design. It is flexible and there is no need to worry about the blog getting lost in the blogosphere.

            Blogs are also search engine friendly and tends to give blogs a good rating making it easier to search for. Due to these reasons, blogs are now a format being used by big companies online. Websites are now switching to blog formats or also adding them to their existing websites.
