How to start a blog and monetize it

Blogging has now turned into a high-paying online profession. More and more people are taking up blogging as their full-time career option. It gives you a chance to work on your terms and work from anywhere in the world. In this article, I’ll tell you how to start a blog.

Your physical location is not a boundary for blogging. You need to have an interest in writing stuff and you can just sit in any corner of the world and speak your mind and share your knowledge with the whole of the world. In simple terms, you are your own boss.

The best part is that you don’t need lots of money to start a blog. It’s simple, easy and fun. I am a regular blogger and at present, I handle 3 different blogs and all I can say is,

“Blogging is magnificent and very powerful.”

In this blog, I’ll be telling you how you can start your blog and monetize it. The best and easiest way to have your own self-hosted website is through WordPress. In this blog, I am going to tell you how you can do that.

Here, I would like to tell you one very IMPORTANT thing. And that is- Don’t start a blog for the sake of starting or to just earn money. You need to focus on the quality of your content and on your readers. Focus on providing content that has value and what really helps the people out there. Be consistent and patient if you want to see the results.

It’s neither some rocket science nor it is as easy as ABC.

Starting your blog.

For starting a blog, you need to have good knowledge about a particular topic to write on. Just figure out what you are good at and start writing on that.

Don’t wait for things to happen. Start just now. This time is perfect time. Start with whatever knowledge you have. Whatever you want to be, start now. This is what Matthew McConaughey says,

“You want to be a writer? Start writing. You want to be a filmmaker? Start shooting stuff on your phone right now.”

Don’t worry if you are not very good at writing. There are plenty of tools like Grammarly which can help you write better articles. And the best part is, you will learn over time.

Blogging will also help you build up an enriched vocabulary, will boost up your confidence and you’ll be able to express yourself in a better way.

You can start a blog on plenty of topics like tech, fashion, travel, food, literature and what not. You can even start a book review or gadget review site.

Once you have finalized the topic of your blog, think of some unique and ‘easy to remember’ domain name. The shorter and easier the name, the better it is. You may find it difficult to get simple or common words available. Here, you will have to be creative to get some unique, creative, catchy yet simple name.

There are many sites from where you can register your domain at a nominal cost. After you have got your domain name, search for some good hosting provider for hosting your site. You can choose among GoDaddy, Bluehost, FastComet to name a few.

After doing this, you can set up your blog very easily. For detailed information on setting up and managing your blog, you can visit or There are many other websites also which can help you out.

Write good quality and engaging content for your readers. Try to keep your content interesting and fun to read. Create unique and fantastic content. Your blog should have some unique proposition that will help it stand out from the crowd.

Start reading a lot. The more you read, the more knowledge you’ll gain. Eventually, it will help you in your writing skills.

Just writing and publishing your blog will not work. You need to have a strong online presence for sharing your blogs. Social media is the easiest and the most important way to promote your website. Be present on popular social platforms. Make a Facebook page, Instagram account, Twitter handle and others for your blog. Also, be active on Quora, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc to drive traffic to your blog.

start a blog

There are many other basics like SEO, Site Optimization, etc. which you will gradually learn once you start.
Keep adding new content to your blog on a regular basis and be patient. Results will show over time. The worst thing that you can do after starting a blog is to give up. Nothing is easy in life. So keep working on your blog with consistency.

Don’t be confined to yourself. That’s not the way you get famous. Move out and meet fellow bloggers and talk to them. Make healthy relations with them and you’ll get a lot of help. You’ll learn a lot of things from them.

Monetizing your blog.

Once your website starts getting good traffic, you can monetize it. There are innumerable ways to do that. You yourself have to figure it out that which method works best for your website.

I have compiled a list of various ways to monetize your blog-

1. Ad Networks

They are the most common and easiest way to monetize your blog. Though the biggest and the best ad network at the present time is Google AdSense. But it’s not very easy to get approved by it.

No need to worry, there are dozens of other very good, high-paying ad networks. You just need to copy a code on your website and you are ready to earn. You get paid as a person clicks or sees the ads on your blog.

2. Affiliate Links

This is another good way to earn money. What you do here is simply sell other’s products through your website and get a commission for every sale made through your site. Amazon affiliate is one of the best examples of affiliate programs. You can start earning from Amazon affiliate program by simply signing up on their website.

You can display their products which are relevant to the topic of your website. You will get a fixed percentage of commission on every sale. For this, you need to have a good number of steady visitors on your website.

3. Sell Ad Space

If you don’t want to get into complications of signing up with some Ad network and managing your earnings, you can sell your own Ad Space. Selling your personal ad space on your website is a hassle free way to get money.

You can just select the place where you want to run ads and contact prospective clients who want to advertise on your website. Tell them the money that you want to charge for that ad space, publish their ads and get money directly. You get the complete money of your ads, unlike ad networks.

4. Sell E-books

Another good way to earn money is by selling E-books. You can write some premium content for your site visitors and sell it to them. You will have to advertise your e-book on your website or you can send emails to your subscribers too.

If people find it good, they will surely buy it from you and you’ll be getting some steady income.

5. Sell products/services

Though, this one is not very easy as you’ll have to set up a kind of online store. You can start selling your own products or services through your website.

You need to stand out here with a USP. You need to give something very unique to the customers to stand out in the competition.

If you have a good number of visitors on your website, you can use it to your advantage by converting them into customers.

6. Other ways

You can do paid reviews of products or services.

Writing sponsored posts or sponsored links is also one of the many ways to make money.

You can also use contextual links in between your blogs promoting other websites or products and get paid.


So, there are lots of ways in which you can monetize your website and earn from it.

Now, it’s your turn to TAKE THE LEAP and START.

    Our latest addition to the limousine fleet is the 7 passenger Cadillac Escalade.
    The turbo 4-banger in the Volkswagon GTI Mk5 is fairly unique among such engines in that it produces huge amounts of torque at a relatively low
    number of RPMs. You can visit Monaco Motors for your classic car’s regular
