    Great infographic. I’ve been mainly blogging as an entrepreneur for my business. Now, I’ve been monetizing as well. There are definitely many blended approaches on this one.

    Nice. And yeah, I agree with those points. I mostly blog about personal finance and self help and then translate them to Tagalog because a lot of my countrymen can’t understand English. That majority live in poverty so I believe those money articles I write about can help them.

      Hi Ray! I myself have worked with and are still working with a lot of Filipinos. I have to disagree with your belief that a lot of your countrymen can’t understand English. They’re actually pretty good at using English as a means of communication. Aside from that, I commend your goal of helping your kababayans. Kudos!

    Do you know some monetizing schemes someone can apply?

    It’s true; you can start monetizing your blog immediately!! Why not try and see where it can get you short term and long term.

    Excellent points. You are so right that when you start to see money from blog posts, it really does motivate you to do more and to do in a quality way to drive more traffic and increase your efficiency. I hope that one day, I will have a much larger part of my income be passive income from my blog.

      Good old passive income, love it! Rich, have you ever gotten into ebook publishing? They can generate passive income incredibly quick, depending on the topic.

      Hi Rich! Thank you so much for the vote of confidence. πŸ™‚ Just like a lot of people here have said, blogging and monetizing is a journey and a learning process. I have the same hopes as you for myself too! Good luck on both our journeys!

    Thanks, Kevin πŸ˜‰
    Although I love reason #2 the most, we have to be careful with the way we spend our time. Many people fall victim to not having a set schedule or aren’t disciplined enough. They spend the day doing minor work here and there, constantly catching up, looking for new blogging methods, and so on. This can create a lot more stress and work than a traditional job.

    Whatever you do with blogging, have a clear goal/technique and a solid schedule. Otherwise you’ll be your own worst enemy.

      Hi Elvis! I agree. That’s really the usual trap that bloggers fall into. That’s why, like you said, having a clear goal and solid schedule is the best way to get one’s act together as a blogger.
      If not, they’ll be surprised to find that there are actually a lot more distractions at home compared to the office, and these can prevent them from getting the job done.

    Hey Kevin, I did not know about monetising my blog until last month and truthfully that is my motivation as I would like to earn a passive income from blogging. #4 helped me to start monetising as I was learning from other bloggers how to do it. It’s definitely a learning process everyday.

    Kevin, this was very informative. I loved the infographic and how you listed the main points of monetizing your blog. I always thought about monetizing mine, but you have written your post in a way that makes it orderly and effortless. You take into consideration some great reasons to do so.

    Hi Kevin,

    I love monetizing a blog, you’re right if you’re providing valuable content that helps people there’s no reason why you shouldn’t take the time to monetize it.

    It does take time to see results from your hard work. However, with consistency and hard work, it will eventually pay off.

    I think blogging is one of the best ways to set up passive income streams. Once you get into product creation, you have the opportunity to increase your income without being the middleman like affiliate marketing.

    Great tips thanks for sharing them.

    Have a great day πŸ™‚

    Hi Kevin,

    Great infographic & post. Blogging is the best career option if you have passion of writing. It gives us freedom of choosing own working hours, new experiences and relations. But it will take time to earn from the blog. Your success depends on the niche, contents and strategies you adopt.

    All the best,
    Take care,

    Hi Kevin,
    Actually, I just started blogging. Monetizing is far far away for me. I know that but until I read this article I thought this money making thing is a crap and it annoys my readers.
    You showed some great points, man. I will definitely consider about monetization in the future and I will work for that.
    Thanks.

    For me to start monetizing a blog, we should first start building our viewers and followers, then after that we can start thinking monetizing a blog.
