Money answers a lot of things, don’t believe the people who tell you that money isn’t important. Money is important, it can buy you a brand new house and a private jet. Why do you want to make money?
Money follows value
One of the first decisions you must make is to consistently add value and not destroy. Become a builder of people and companies. The good book says whatever you find to do, do it with all your might. How do you do homework? How do you make beads? How do you answer phone calls? Are you attentive or imitating the federal government who is waiting for noon to leave the office because they have no intention of being productive.
If this is you, repent. Make a “U-turn”; change your attitudes, habits and thinking processes. If you succeed at this then we can know that these tips for making money via blogging will work for you.

I have been blogging for ten years. I did more of personal blogging before I started professional blogging in 2013. I was one of the original Blogville fam, if you were one, holla! Yes I make good money from my blog, love honest work but it wasn’t always that way, there was a time when pageviews and comments and seeing your blog on someone’s wall would thrill me to no end. Today, it is all about the benjamins, baby!
If you want to be a blogger, you must be consistent, hardworking and engaging. One of my dreams was to be a writer who paid the bills via writing and lived in a luxury house, I must say that I am getting there even though Linda got there before me, she has put in the hours but I will trust God for speed to be at the point where I am making big bucks because of blogging and social media. One of the things that will help you in this business is genuinely caring about other people, what they read, look at and think about daily and making their live a little better even if it is just one step that gets taken that day.
Five things you must do for your blog to make money is:
You don’t need one million views to begin making money but you need traffic to be passing through your blog and coming back to your blog. One of the fastest way to do this is having quality content regularly that you put your back into. Don’t post any rushed content because it will show. Create new, hot content, share with your friends and voila, more traffic for you.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT CONTENT:
Your content must be interesting; people must want to read it over and over again. You can do gossip like Linda, luxury like Bella or digital tips like me. Build your niche from what you know and love so you can be fluent when you are writing. When designing the blog, be sure that it is appealing and easy to move around it. Put links to your ‘about page’ on every single blog page so that your readers get to know you and not just your content.
