Earn passive income with your blog
One of the biggest appeal to having a blog is the opportunity to earn passive income. Passive income is income that you earn while not actively working. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t take any work to start earning passive income.
There are many ways, directly and indirectly, to monetize your blog. Nearly all of them earn you passive income. Building a passive income from blogging does require work though..at least to get things going. Then, regular maintenance and update to keep the passive income recurring.
Ever heard the phrase, “Make money while you sleep”?
It doesn’t happen overnight and you are required to develop ways to keep a constant follow of traffic to your blog. Regular updates and keeping your blog engaging are near fool-proof ways to keep your traffic levels high. With many new bloggers, the ideas for content come easily. However, as you being to run shy of new content to write about, it becomes harder and harder to keep up with new articles. In addition, there are many other aspects to keeping your blog ‘alive’, like comment management, software updates, search engine optimization, site backups, and more.
Making money blogging isn’t always fun. Like most things, if you do something for money, it usually because less and less fun and more like a chore or a job. Blogging is no different. New bloggers receive their first blog and they are pumped to start writing their articles but they usually fades. I suggest always treating your blog like a hobby and the passive income it earns as a perk. This might sound silly but getting burnt out on blogging is the #1 blog killer. When you treat your blog like a hobby or something that you love to do, then it stays fun and a way for you to express what’s on your mind, rather than just another paycheck for doing some work.
