How to make money with a blog

Earn Money Fast

In 2 Years I Went From Not Knowing What
A Blog Was To Making More Money Blogging
 Than My Day Job.
Super long article with detailed steps of how one blogger grew his blog to a full-time job

The purpose of this article is to show you how to make money
with a blog. I suspect most people won’t stick with it long
enough to make a full-time income, but even making an extra
 few hundred dollars a month isn’t too bad either
(here are 23 other ways to make money as well).
This article is extremely long (more like 10 articles), but
I wanted it to be a thorough and helpful resource for those
wanting to start a blog or make some more money from the
 one they already have.
I should also mention that I really haven’t written about
 blogging or making money from blogs on ChristianPF yet,
 because I wanted to make sure that it was a viable option
for making some cash. Now that I have found that it is,
I decided to pour out everything I learned the last two years
about it…

How It All Started For Me
About 2 years ago I was talking to a friend of mine about
the idea of building websites full of free information to
help people. After brainstorming a bit, I got a couple ideas
of topics that I was passionate about: Proverbs and
Personal Finance.
My first idea was to post a Proverb each day and comment
 on it. As I explained my idea further to him, he informed
me that I would basically have a blog. I didn’t know what
a blog was, but I thought, “oh, ok, sure.”
So, over the next few weeks I read as much as I could
find about blogging and ultimately decided on creating a blog
about Personal Finance from a Christian perspective. I had
 been very interested in helping people with their money,
so blogging seemed like a great way to reach people all over
the world.
Over the next couple months, I started writing articles and
officially launched ChristianPF in June of 2007. At this
point I had thought about making money from the site, but
had no idea how and honestly didn’t really think it was possible
 to make a living at it. I threw up an Adsense ad just to see
what would happen and I still remember how excited I was
when I saw that I had made my first 7 cents!
From there, I set a goal to make $100 by the end of 2007 which
 was pretty easy to accomplish – even without knowing
anything. I should also mention that from June 2007 to June
 2008 I spent about 4-6 hours each weekend writing articles
 and averaged about 4 new articles each week. And I spent
 a few more hours each week on site maintenance, emails,
social media, etc. So in total I probably was spending about
10 hours each week working on the site.
I have been updating this article over the past few years, but
 since releasing the Book Versionof it, I have been updating
that version rather than this blog post. So to get the most
updated details of the rest of the article check out the
Kindle or Paperback version.
Getting Laid Off
In July 2008 things got interesting. The large brokerage
firm that I had worked 5 years for was bought out by a larger
 firm. I was told that my department would no longer be
needed, so they handed me a severance check and I was on
my way. By this point I was making some money from the
 blog, but not enough to even pay the rent each month.
After much prayer I decided against looking for another
 “day job” and decided to work full time on building the
blog. Thankfully we had paid off most of our debt, and had
 my wife’s income as a support to buy us some time. I figured
I would give it a shot for a few months and if it didn’t work
out I would find another 9-5. From that point, the income
 generated from this website has increased each month and
in February 2009 it exceeded my monthly income from my
old day job.
I am still a little bit in awe and can’t believe that I am actually
 paying the bills from this website!. But, I thank God everyday
that I get to do this – I really did not like working in Corporate
America and am so thankful! It is hard work, but it doesn’t
 really seem like it when you are doing something that you
are passionate about and love doing it.

Blogging In 10 Minutes!
This is just a quick cliffnotes version for committed bloggers
only. These recommendations aren’t best suited for those
dabbling with blogging, but they are the things that I would
do if I had to do it all over again.
