Well you can create your own blog and sell advertising space using your advertising network account. In this case your revenue depends on the amount of people that visit your blog and the amount of money that advertisers are willing to pay for inventory on your blog. Many popular free blogs include wordpress.com and blogger.com. There are other companies that would share advertising revenue with you. In this case they are in charge of promoting and generating traffic to your blog. Also they search for advertisers interested in targeting your blog's visitors. In plain terms they are intermediaries between the blogger and the advertiser. These companies are called blogging networks. Bloggers are basically paid to write and post their opinions and reviews of websites, products and services. Examples of this kind of company include paidperposts.com, weblogsinc.com, e-how.com,[I was using them before but now I have quit paid blog posting] etc. Some companies pay a fixed rate per post so you do not need to worry about traffic for your website. Payment varies from $5 up to $200 per post depending on the popularity and the blog's topic. You can make from $100 to $500 through paid blogging and posting per month with each blog. Most companies would ask you for the internet address of your current blog so that they can evaluate your writing skills so it is a good idea to start a free blog before applying. My advice is to apply to as many paid blogging network sites as possible. Your blog may not be accepted or approved by some companies. This way you make sure that you are getting every possible opportunity to get paid to blog. After you fill out an application be patient. Some networks have a fast approval process while others seem to take a couple of weeks.
