Lots of people blog these days. It is a natural extension of social networking sites. People even do “micro blogging” by posting updated information on Twitter. Granted it is not more than a sentence or two but it still keeps people informed. And that is what a blog is for, or rather, what it is intended for. So what do you blog about? Do you blog about your personal life? Do you blog about how work is weighing you down and you want to make a go of it on your own? Or do you use your blogs as ways to make money. It is very possible if you know some of the basic rules of blogging and get a little help.
The first thing you must accept if you intend to blog for money is that you have to keep to relevant topics. Blogging about the neighbor’s dog is not going to garner you a lot of interest or back links to make money. However, if you were blogging about a dog walking service and mention dogs in your neighborhood you may very well be on to something. You could even blog about dog products and services. Put in some relevant ads and use the right blogging service and suddenly you are getting some high ranking pages. That is money in your pocket. So, the lesson number one is to make relevant blogs. Keep your personal life just that personal; unless it is very relevant to your blog.
The next step is writing good blog content. You do not have to make it a lengthy diatribe on the effects of Kangen water systems versus tap water. You do not have to write an essay. A five hundred word blog is pretty sufficient and you can get a lot of information out in that amount of space. You just have to utilize the space efficiently. Make it informative yet engaging. That is what draws in readers. They like information but presented in a very informal way. A blog accomplishes this quite effectively. You have the opportunity to engage readers, keep them entertained and give them the information that they may be seeking.
