Making money with your blog

The quest to make money with your blog is a task that many have tried to tackle. Entire blogs are dedicated to this topic. Blogs like Problogger and John Chow are two good examples of blogs that help bloggers make money with their blogs offering advice and ideas. I tried to do the same with blogs over time. I tried using different methods like pay per post and adsense, but I found that it wasn't what tools you used, but the amount of time you have to dedicate to blogging. It takes alot of time to build a good blog and maintain it. You need to grow a reader base which takes time and you need to keep your content fresh and edgy. The point that I am trying to make is that it is not a get rich quick scheme. Blogging needs dedication, organization, and a certain amount of writing skill and creativity, at least if you want to try to make some income with your blog. There is a handful of bloggers out there who make some decent money with adsense and other forms of monetization. If you are one of them then comment and toot your own horn. How much do you make and what do you use to do it.?

I post for 3 (or 4?) different places. PPP is the best known of them, but sometimes the pickin's are slim.

My favorite place now is PayU2Blog. Always $5, always only 60 words. No mention of a company or product. Just slip the link into a regular post.

I do okay with it :)

I've always wondered how to do that. Of course, the big factor is traffic. Thats probably the only time I'll every say I like traffic. Because normally traffic really stinks. My blog at is still new- but now that I know about you, I'll have you critique it when its good.
