So you want to join the blogging revolution and make tons of money by blogging. But you don't know how to generate the cash. Well, today is your lucky day as I will tell you ways to make money by blogging.

Now remember not everybody that writes a blog does it for the money or should I say the potential to make money. But, also remember that not all blogs that are written to make money ,do make money.

In this article I will present to you ways to make money by blogging. We will assume that all other aspects of the blog(name, traffic, content etc...) are good and now you want to monetize your blog and make some money.

AdSense - This is the most common way to make money on a blog. You set up your Adsense info, either banners or text ads, on your blog and your visitors click the ads that they are interested in. When they click, you make money. There are other programs besides Google's AdSense, but they are by far the most popular.

Affiliate Programs - You can join millions of different affiliate programs, either individually or on a network. The easiest way is to join a network, like Commission Junction, and get the links and or banners from them. You can then place these affiliate ads in your side bar, in between posts or even woven into posts to make it look more natural.

Sell Ad Space - You can sell individual ads by the day, week, month or even by the year, if you want. The amount you sell them for will probably be heavily weighted by your content and your traffic.

Pay to Post - A newer concept in blog advertising is the Pay to Post idea. This is where a company like will bring advertisers and bloggers together. An advertiser will put out an order for a ad on a certain type blog with so much traffic and the corresponding blogs will take the opportunity if they want it. When they do they will make a post on their blog and talk about what ever the advertisers wanted them to talk about. If the advertisers are satisfied with the post then you get paid. These posts can generate anywhere from $5 to $500!

Donations - I know you have seen these before on different blogs and websites. A small Pay Pal button that ask you to donate. The thing is these actually work. If your blog gives out great information and you don't push people to buy stuff, they almost feel obligated to donate to you for helping them.

I hope that these ideas to generate money from your blog have helped you. While these might not be all the ways to make cash from your blog, it is certainly a good start for your blog. If you keep the multiple streams of income principle in mind for your blog, you will do well and make money by blogging.
