Blogging on Blogging

by John Carthy on January 4, 2007

Blogging is certainly a publishing revolution. Anyone with a PC and an opinion can now make their views and photos available to the world. And get feedback . . .

And yes, some blogs and opinions are downright boring. I’m sure I’ll get feedback to that effect. But some are great, niche sites that offer the highly focused information you can’t get anywhere else.

Further to my last post, I love gadgets. Check out gadgetmaniac.mail2web.com (based on WordPress) and you’ll find a massive collection of product reviews and articles about some products and developments I didn’t know existed, I will probably never buy but I find incredibly interesting just the same.

Some blogs can actually generate money through advertising. Don’t quit your day job, I’m not talking about ‘get rich, working from home’ schemes but rather the ability to generate enough money to cover your blog hosting costs and maybe a little left over for the odd gadget purchase.

Free sites have all sorts of limitations – file sizes, forgettable domain names, bad reporting and ultimately little control when it comes to integrating things like Google Adsense – the easiest way to run ads and make money.

But for less than $5.00 a month you can get a WordPress account with myhosting.com. WordPress is the leading application for blogging, can be set up in minutes (we have an auto-install script), and you can use the domain name of your choice (could be an extra fee if it’s a new domain name, but you can transfer an existing domain name for free).

Part of the setup includes an automatic installation of the Adsense plugin, so once you get an Adsense account it’s easy to place ads around your content. Write a few articles a week – check your traffic through Google Analytics (also included as an auto install provided you have an account) – and provided what you write is interesting and somewhat targeted, your opinion will be heard and you might even make some money.

That’s revolutionary.

I always thought you had to be successful before you could add AdSense to your blog. It’s nice that you can add the program when you’re just starting out.

Having your blog look and feel professional is priceless. That’s why I’m amazed blog hosting is so cheap!

I always thought Adsense was complicated to install. And yet your blog’s main moneymaker is automatically included. What a deal.

Nice. As soon as I figure out my exciting niche, I’m all over this.

Finding your niche can be one of the hardest parts. You know your general area of interest most likely, but narrowing that down to get the best niche is often tricky.

I agree. If you can find a niche that few people are occupying, if anyone, then you’re really lucky!

I speak for a lot of people when I say blogging on WordPress is definitely its own reward. Still, if I’m able to make a little money on the side, I ain’t complaining!
