Writing a blog for money

Writing blogs for money - Did not make any money from my first blogs for almost 18 months (i didn't even know you could so did not try) and when i did start to try to make money from them the first income was just a few dollars a week – but gradually in time my income grew from a part time income to a full time income and then beyond. I love blogging, that's the reason most of my income still comes from instructional design, elearning using rapid development software tools, writing and editing training video scripts, and book royalties (from my own book and numerous academic textbooks i have written): the amount i make from blogging just can't hold a candle to the instructional design and textbook rates. Are many ways to experiment with growing your blog's audience that i've written in previous blog posts and talked about in podcasts (i'll share some further reading and listening below) but it is important to enter into all these strategies remembering that you should not just be looking for ‘traffic' but ‘readers'. So many businesses have just hit the point where they realize they could use a blog to grow their business…and they also realize they are never going to have the time and/or skill to create compelling blog posts on a regular basis in addition to all their other responsibilities at their business.
