Today, everybody knows what a blog is, and many people have a blog either for personal or business use.
One of the first (if not THE first) sites to offer free space for bloggers, was Blogger.com.
And today, this site is still something special. Blogger is owned by Google, and you are allowed to put AdSense on your blog, and to advertise in other ways.
This makes it a great opportunity for people who want to make money online, but don’t want to spend a large amount of money up front.
Create an Account
Before you can start creating your first blog, you have to register with Blogger. If you already have a Gmail address, this makes the task so much easier. Otherwise, you’ll need to obtain one in the process of setting up your blog. Your Gmail address will be used as your username to log into Blogger in the future.
Choose a Great Name for your Blog
As soon as your account is finalised, you can start creating your first blog.
In order for it to be found as easily as possible, you should put relevant keywords in the title. I know that a title like “Little Miss Kitty’s Blog” sounds cute, but it doesn’t tell your readers much about what it is you are writing. “Great Tips to the Linux PC” is so much clearer.
Now you have to find an address for the blog. This is a very important step, too. Try to put the same keywords in the URL, if possible. In this case, I would try “linuxpctips” and it turns out that, at this very moment, this address is available.
Copy the letters you see in the verification, and continue.
Choose a Simple Design
Some of the templates offer splendid colors, but the more clean and minimal theme you choose, the more people will concentrate on the content instead of the design.
And you want them to focus on the content!
How to Monetize Your Blogger Blog
There are several ways in which you can monetize your blog. The easiest way is just by adding AdSense ads from Google. One of my friends posts a few jokes each week, and he actually makes a profit this way.
You could also acquire articles from article directories, put them on your blog, and make money from the ads.
Another way is to write your own content, related to an affiliate product. You could do a review of the product, and have your affiliate link attached.
