There are over 6 billion people on planet earth. Each of the 6 billion are very different. Everyone has different cultures, likes, dislikes, haircuts, body types, beliefs, musical tastes, favorites, shoe sizes, morals, and eye colors. With all those differences you'd think that maybe they'd be able to find something similar, but the only thing that 6 billion people have in common is that everyone communicates.
With the advent of the Internet, communication is a whole new ball game. People can communicate via chat, e-mail, social networks, and even Internet phone. One of the most popular forms of communication online is the blog.
A blog is basically someone creating their own site where they share their life experiences with others. Out of the 6 billion people on the planet, at least 300 million of them have a blog. Blogs can take a long time to maintain; fortunately you can make money blogging.

So, you want to make money blogging? First things first, you need to find your niche. What will your blog be about? For example; if you want to make money blogging about eyeglass stands, and sunglass holders, your blogging needs to cater to people who want to buy those things. If you really want to make money blogging, you need to be creative. Sure, all of your blogging content could be about how fabulous eyeglass stands are, we need to go into detail about what eyeglass stands are- make sure people know about your products from the ground up.
PPC TLC What is TLC?
Now that you found your niche, you will need to focus on the moneymaking aspect of your blog. If you want to sell sunglass holders, you need to join an affiliate network that includes businesses that sell sunglass holders and eyeglass stands. Once you've shaken hands and made deals, you need to obtain the appropriate banner ads, and add them to your blog site.
These banner ads are called pay per click ads (PPC), and every time someone clicks on one you get paid. This is how you make money blogging. The more businesses to contract with, especially businesses that sell eyeglass accessories, the more money you will make.
Making money blogging isn't just about pay per click ads. You can also make money by inserting links into your actual blog text, and every time someone clicks on the link and goes to the site, you get a percentage. Just like with pay per click ads, you will want to partner with the business that sells things you want to write about. If you are passionate about eyeglass accessories, then partner with a business that sells sunglass holders and eyeglass stands. Every time you write about your favorite eyeglass accessories, you insert the link behind the words, people read your blog, click on the links, and you get paid.
The beauty of blogging for money is that you get paid to write about something you'd write about for free.
