I often get asked, “Do you make money from blogging?”
This is a tricky question, because I actually make money as a result of blogging. Sure, I earn some money through affiliate sales and AdSense… and The Essence of Blogging (+ How to Earn Money Online) lists the other ways I have expanded my income sources. I now have 9+ revenue streams! 🙂
No one pays me for creating blog posts for my own sites.
No one pays me for promoting them, either.
However, if I DIDN’T blog, no one would know who the heck I was!
Nor would they know I help others become authors too.
Blogging is a way to get your content in front of the right people.
So is guest posting! 😉
