In the middle 1990’s everyone started talking about needing a website. Now, the new “must have” is a web log or blog. While blogs can come in all shapes and sizes, a blog is just a very simple way to publish a journal, record of events, thoughts, ideas or whatever the author wants to write about. A blog sits on a website – whether that site is run by you or managed by a company that will “host” your blog.

You can make money with your blogs by becoming an affiliate. It is essential that you should look for advertisers that are connected to your niche. After finding the relevant advertisers, you are required to apply so that you can become an affiliate. After approval, you can place affiliate banners on the blogs.

OMake sure that your customers know that your blog exists. Providing some targeted advertising on the Internet is not hard. Try some link exchange programs with web sites, blogs, and ezines that have similar content to your blog. In many cases, simply providing a link to another web site can convince that web master to provide a link to your blog.

So why are Like and follow my blog so popular nowadays? I can think of a few reasons off the top of my head: For starters, it gives us a community in which we can easily communicate with people we know or never met about topics we share in common. With blogs, we can show our unique personalities through our writing. Blogging just gives the world yet another way to communicate on a grand scale. There is virtually no limit to what you can post. Don’t be left out.

After you’ve decided the subject of your blog, you will then need to register with a blogging host. The most popular blogging hosts are Blogspot and WordPress, both of which offer their service for free. Just go to their websites, follow the instructions and get your blog up and running. You can then spruce up the look of your blog by choosing between pre-designed templates, colours, fonts and designs.

It won’t even take a full year. You can build a successful and useful web site in three to six months with valuable blogging that inspires, entertains and enlightens your readers into being valuable, paying customers.
