How Does A Blog Make Income?

Many people have asked how money is made with a blog, so I thought I'd address the question in a post:

Blogs make money though advertising. All the little ads that say "Powered by Google" are run by Google AdSense. They put the ads up automatically based on my content. You get paid a little bit each time someone clicks on an ad and waits long enough for it to load. Usually it's anywhere from a dollar to .50, but it adds up. I've been blogging seriously since January and my AdSense account is about to hit $40. That's pretty good for doing nothing but blogging, which I would be doing anyway. You get paid when your earnings reach $100 or more.

Another common ad program is Amazon.com. There you only get paid if someone clicks through one of your amazon links and make a purchase. It doesn't matter if they actually purchase what was on the link. Any purchase qualifies.

That's the basic two ways to make income blogging. It's not a fortune, but it adds up quick. If Penny Pinscher had a hundred readers that regularly clicked on the ads I'd be debt free in no time. That's not a hint or anything ;)

Don't Forget Your Blue Card!

If you shop regularly at Goodwill, don't forget to pick up a "blue card" as you check out. For every $10 you spend you get a stamp. When your card is filled up you redeem it for $20 worth of free merchandise. The card never expires and is great to save for back to school shopping.

They also used to give coupons out when you donated, but I haven't seen those in a while. I'll ask next time I go and report back whatever I find out. In the meantime - enjoy your blue card!

Get your free samples of True Lemon here.

I'm signing up for my free samples now - I didn't know True Lemon came in convenient little packages! I just threw away a half bottle that spoiled because I didn't use it fast enough. Great idea!
