How To Make Money With Blogs

The most recent issue of Business 2.0 magazine has a fascinating article "Blogging For Dollars." The subhead is "It's Not Just A Hobby - Some Small Sites Are Making Big Money."

It tells the stories of people who have, in a very short period of time, attracted huge audiences and attracted advertisers to their blogs. Some are grossing high into six figures.

Most started out blogging as a sort of hobby but, as their blog followings grew, dedicated themselves to blogging full time.

In this article, the writers have included a side bar by Saheli S. R. Datta titled "The 7 Habits OF Highly Effective Bloggers." Here are the key points:

1. Focus intently on a narrow niches.

2. Set up your blog so that each post gets its own permanent URL.

3. Think of your blog as a database.

4. Blog frequently and regularly.

5. Use striking images in your posts.

6. Enable comments and interact with readers.
