Blog for money, or blog for fun?

by Cristhian Bedon on November 6, 2008

A reason to most is to blog so they are able to make money. But there was a poll done at problogger. It has shown that it came close, while blogging people figured they can make some extra change for the keys that the pressed.

Each person has a different reason as why they choose to blog. Some just want to give out information, some find it a good way to get some of their talent out and try to compensate for it. For me, blogging is a new thing, in the future I might blog “fulltime”, but I don’t see it happening. This is more of a way for me to do a personal brand, and to show people my work. At the most, I would like to make a few bucks, “to buy that cup of coffee” per say.

There is other ways to make money than just blogging:

  • Website Design
  • Flipping (selling) Websites
  • Selling ebooks
  • Youtube Partnership program
  • Freelance writing, graphic design
  • Teaching and Consulting
  • Owning other types of websites (directories, forums etc)
  • Business Documentation site
  • Developing web applications
  • Online Surveys
  • Paid to Click Sites
  • Selling Products and Merchandise
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Writing on User Generated Content (Revenue Sharing) Sites
  • Make Online Games
  • Online Store – Selling Products
  • eBay
  • Selling Art
  • Business Referrals
  • Market Research
  • Software Development
  • Working as a Transcriptionist
  • Membership Sites
  • Generating Sales for Off-line Business from Websites

Why do you blog? Whats your intent?
