Has anyone done this? Does it pay well? Since Associated Content has started paying so low of an amount for stories I would love to find something else to supplement my income. I'm wondering how easy the blogging for money thing is.

It can pay really well if your page rank is good enough. I use payperpost and my page rank is 0 and I make $450 a month minimum. If you can get your page rank up really well you can be making $1000's per month. You are allowed to do 3 posts per day per blog. You can get more info from my blog http://strawberrykisseseverythingblog.blog.dada.net theres a post there giving you info and a link.

StrawberryKisses, this is interesting and I feel mad! Lol :P I am on payperpost too but there are so few assignments! I log in faithfully everyday but there are no new assignments. And you say your page rank is only.. 0 yet you are able to make $450 a month MINIMUM?? Geez, I haven't even made 50 bucks in all the time I joined! What's wrong? Why is PPP ill-treating me? *SNIFF*

Let me hazard a guess.. it will be worse than associated content. :P I take it you don't have a blog. To start one up, fill it with content and drive traffic to it, you need at least months or years... if you are lucky. So there, I think you are better off sticking with AC if the other alternative is switching to blogging.

I noticed that you responded to someone else in this discussion mentioning that you don't get a lot of opps on payperpost. Where is your blog hosted? Is it your own domain or is it on a free service?

I do paid blogging. I use payperpost, smorty, blogitive, linkworth and review me. Most of the paid posts I do are from payperpost. When my blogs were PR 0 I made $100-150 a month. Now that my blogs have a higher PR I make a bit more. It's actually very easy. Most sites give you the link and anchor text that you need to work into the blog post and tell you how many words it needs to be. As long as you fullfill all of the requirements, you'll be approved and get paid. Some sites pay monthly, some pay weekly, payperpost pays by the post - 30 days after you take the opp. Hope that helps a little.

That does help. Thanks. Are there any blog sites that do not allow you to have this type of blog? Right now all I have are blogs on LiveJournal and MySpace.

I knwo that some of them only accept blogs on your own domain but payperpost accepts blogs on myspace and livejournal (one of mine is on livejournal). Some Opps will disqualify blogs on those sites, so I'd recommend setting one up on blogger or on your own domain to build up and use later if you want to make more from it. In order ot qualify, your blog has to be at least 90 days old and have at least 20 posts.

If there are few visitors, will there still be much paid? It's not easy to write a good blog and i don't write one. Maybe should try sometime. Happy blogging!!

Yes, it's true blogging can earn you money. But do not for a second think that blogging is easy and certainly blogging for money is no child's play. A lot of hard work have to be committed to the blog, writing content, driving traffic, networking on social media sites, testing your targeted audience preference, continuously tweaking your blog. I started out blogging with free blogging platform on Blogger and moved to self-hosted blog with my own domain name.

I haven't tried because I'm rather new at blogging. I think you should try signing up for sites that pay you to write about something, then you'd be able to earn something. Read a lot of blogs that mention that they got paid doing that and it contributed to their online income. good luck!
