I have seen the importance of blog, so I thought of writing about it, which can help people like me around the world. I would like to tell everyone that since I have created my own blog, I have been making five times more money than I used to earn by working online. OK, so here comes the first question - How to create a blog? These days it is very easy to have an own blog as there are many websites, which offer free blogs like wordpress, blogger, etc. Just signup at any of these sites and follow the instruction How to create a wordpress blog – Step by Step Guide , you would be having your blog within few minutes.

Once you have set up blog then there would be another question – How to earn money using blog? Before I write about anything about ways to make money using the blog, I would like to suggest that you will not start making money overnight with your blog. It takes some time before you can see some results. I have this blog since almost 24 months now. I didn’t earn money in first six months but after that, my earning capabilities are increased, and now I am making about $150-200 monthly with my blog. Even though it is not very big amount but I am sure that I would be making around $500 monthly soon.
Create Free Blog and Earn Money
I am using following ways to earn money using my blog:
1. Affiliate Marketing: This is the best method, and I use it a lot. You can write about any site, which pays for referring others to their site. When you join a site, you’ll get your link to refer others now just write something about that site on your blog and include your referral link in this. An example for the same can be found here - How to earn money online by working on small task? There are many other websites which share earning for any product sell. You can write about products and add your affiliate link. If someone click on this link and buy that product, You’ll will earn your commission. Commission for any sell can be anything from 25% to 75%.
2. Adsense: Adsense is a program run by Google that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, or interactive media advertisements, that are targeted to site content and audience. (Wikipedia) This is one of ways to show ads on blog. You will get paid for every unique visit(CPM) also for your click on ads. Adsense earning depends on number of visitors to any site. If any site is getting about 100 unique visits a day then adsense earning would be around $30-50 monthly. There are many blog posts about how to increase adsense earning. You can try few of guideline from these blogs to increase your earning capabilities.
3. Adhitz: This site is similar to Adsense however, adsense require pre-approval before you start making money by showing ads.
