If you manage your own blog – congratulations, you will know by now how hard it can be. A lot of people will assume that because you work from home, it’s easy. You spend most of your time watching tv, drinking tea, and typing a couple sentences here and there – but oh how wrong they are. A lot of hard work goes into owning a blog, and that’s well before you even begin to think about making money!
But how do you go about earning from your blog? Remember that because blogging takes up so much time, it is important that you have an income coming in so that you can still support yourself and live a comfortable life without worrying about not being able to provide.

So if you find something that you really believe in, have a look at the analyst stock ratings, and put some of your money behind them. If it all works out, you will not only get it all back, but you will have a very nice cut out of all the earnings.
Allow adverts on your site
When you have your own website and you are getting a lot of traffic on there, you will be contacted by different businesses who will ask if you will allow them to put pop up ads on your website. These are often the square ads that you see down the sides of a page. Now, some people don’t actually like them as they see it as clutter, but if you’re trying to make money, then any little helps. Some companies will pay you depending on how long you are willing to promote their ad for, while others will pay you per click that they get, which essentially means that everytime someone clicks on one of the
