Gone were the days where we write our diary in a notebook and keep it in a box. What’s hip today is blogging. It’s an online diary where you can write anything under the sun. Talking of secrecy of this online diary, you have the choice to keep it private or you can publish it by allowing your blog to be viewed publicly. But blogging doesn’t mean an online diary only; you can be versatile with your site and you can personalize it. If you are a writer and can’t afford to publish your works then post it in your blog; if you’re a songwriter why not post your composition; or if you’re a photographer then you can publish picture; your blog could also be a source of information – health, fashion, photography, art, etc. Sky is the limit!!!
But did you know that you can earn money through blogging? Why not make this as your sideline. This is the new trend in advertising, the so called blog advertising. How does it work? First you must be registered in a Blog Advertising Store. Then once your blog was successfully screened according to their set of criteria or standard they will then give you task to write in your blog.
So what this tasks all about and how you will earn through it? You will be given a task to review a certain product, website or service and you write about it in your blog. The advertiser will pay for your time learning and writing about their product. They need an honest review from you, meaning it could be positive or negative (not really negative, maybe a constructive criticism). Through blog advertising, advertisers expect that you will help them increase their sale. But your reviews are guided with the advertiser requirements. So, like what we’ve learn from school, it’s very important to follow instructions otherwise they will reject your post.
Oooppss! The competition in the blog market is so high. So to get more tasks or opportunities your blog must have a high page rank or you must have many visitors everyday. One way of to get more visitor is to register your blog to a directory like DMOZ or the Open Directory Project.
