First of all I want to make sure that everyone understands what a blog is. In the most lament terms, a blog is a website that an individual updates with content often called “blog posts”. When you go to someone’s blog it is very normal to see the most updated post on the very top. People that have a blog and add content are called “bloggers”, and when they are updating a blog they are said to be “blogging”. As we go further down this rabbit hole, you will see that a blog can make you money online.

Follow me have communities of their own. There are blog networks, blog directories, and lists of friends in most blog accounts. You’d be able to expose your main website’s link to a brand new audience because of this.

Sound easy? For the most part it is. The key though is to have enough daily, weekly and monthly viewers to make it worth your advertisers money. Nobody is going to spend money advertising on a blog that doesn’t get a lot of traffic. So driving traffic to your blog is the most important thing.

Now that you have your list of blogs you are ready to start contacting blog owners and asking them if they’re interested in having guest posters. In your e-mail explain that you have some great articles that would work great with their blog. Ask them to e-mail you back for more details. Not everyone will respond but those who do will be interested. I like to e-mail about three blog owners a day so I don’t get overwhelmed with responses. Make it a habit of doing this and you should be writing guest posts in no time. Just remember when you’re writing your post that you are offering really good content. The better the content the better the response you will get from the readers.

This turned into “six degrees of separation” publicity – her coverage on hundreds of online blogs led to an eventual Today Show appearance and write ups in several major magazines. These editors and producers either found her through a blog that they personally enjoyed, or heard of her from someone that read about her in their favorite blog.

Now you know what a blog is, but in blogs-name is a web 2.0?!? First of all, it’s not “a” web 2.0, its “the” web 2.0. Web 1.0 is the boring, html links everywhere, non-interactive, non-social internet that most of our online experience is comprised of. Web 2,0 is the multimedia rich, user friendly, options galore, and most importantly SOCAIL web that we’re beginning to experience. Sites that allow users to share videos, bookmarks, have discussions, and integrate content left and right, are being defined as web 2.0 websites.

With the ease of use and exceptional potential that keeping a blog provides, it’s incredible that people didn’t tap into this gold mine years ago. If you are creative enough, you can have huge success using this free, easy method of marketing and quickly make money with blogs.
