well, I have read many... blogs about how its so easy to earn money on a blog, and I am actually interested in trying it out but I really don't know what to blog about and I am kind of easily distracted from doing things. I was thinking about writing about video games and stuff, because I'm really interested in video games and stuff but I don't know what blogging website to use for my blog. So what blogging website do you use if you do blog?

Even though you get distracted, I bet you keep up with playing your games? Right? Well do like a diary of what game your playing to give others an idea of what you do when your playing certain games.. could end up being a blog to rate games from users votes and such. Which could bring in the visitors you would need to get it going..

Thats what I was thinking, I was gonna play games and make my blogs a mix of reviews of the games and a way to meet others that play the game also, and maybe turn it into a little bit of a programming blog because I plan on learning how to program games and software myself, right now I know my way around a little c++ and SDL. Its a start but I got a long way to go.

Why not find other beginners / learners in programming especially for games as im sure theres plenty around the web now a days. Then create a blog / help site where you could all go to to share tips, tutorials, helpful info etc about it? Link it to a forum also then there you go. May not make alot of money from it, but sometimes the satisfaction from helping others and participating is more fun.

Others have already taken words out of my mouth! Making easy money online is truly not that easy. You can make a few cents a day easily but serious money takes intelligence, perseverance, creativity, research and time. Blogger is a good way to start out blogging. But continue to research. Even if you have the capability of being a CEO you still have to invest in yourself. Learn what it is to niche market, constantly gain new referrals, and research new ways others have found to earn money online, because a passive income is not all that passive.

Hi there, I have a number of blogs, but the one that I keep up with regularly is the one that I feel passionate about. I find that I am passionate about poetry and although that blog doesn't make a ton of money, it does give me a forum for my writing and that is important to me. I would look for something that you feel passionate about. Then go from there.

Online earning is a looking like a eary way for me in the starting, but When days are passing it is looking like somewhat tough, but not impossible. Here we have to stand on our own legs, here we are not working under anyone. Likewise we have many freedom properties, but we have to work so hard. Coming to "earning with online blogging". First we have to get popularity in blogging, and have to know each and everything in detail. It takes few months time.
