Blogging is one of the most popular methods of learning online these days, and moms are getting involved by the thousands. What about blogging makes this so profitable? Why is blogging so commonly used by stay at home moms? Before these questions are answered, you first need to understand:
What is Blogging? Blogging is basically just writing. Writing about your day, your new pair of shoes, your new favorite product, or that movie you just saw. Normally blogs are a continuous page of day by day updates by a user, about random topics or about a specific topic.
How can I make money blogging?
Blogs generally receive thousands of hits or more every month, depending upon how popular your blog is. That's thousands of people who are interested in what YOU have to say. If you write about a great new product that you just purchased, tons of people are going to want to try that product. If you talk about how well your stress fixed your back problems, people with similar back problems are going to want to give that mattress a try.
Basically, you write about products and services that you have tried and that you have enjoyed. In the article or at the end, you simply leave an affiliate link (a URL with your name embedded), and if someone buys the product through that link, you make a commission. It sounds like marketing, and that's what it is, but it's not hard selling and flashing obnoxious pop ups and spam in peoples faces. It's honest selling, the way it should be, and that's exactly why this works so well.
Does this cost anything? Do I need my own website?
You do not need your own website, as there are hundreds of free blogging services. (Blogger, Hubpages, Squidoo, etc.) Everything involved in blogging for income is free, although learning the actual methods may cost you something.
Blogging for cash is the most popular job for stay at home moms for a reason. It's very easy to get started and requires very little investment in money. You update your blog whenever you like, with no obligation.
