Blogging for Money?

After doing some online research, I found out that a lot of people are not still sure or unaware about blogging?

What is blogging? Can I make money with blogging?

The answer for this is Yes. But before I go further, let me tell you what is blogging.

Blog initially start as an online diary but quickly developed into so much more such as to index at Search Engine and other internet marketing techniques.

You can write anything you like from your family to your hobby. Statistics also found that people who read blog are more likely to purchase online.

There are reported about 50 million blog in 2006 and as compare to 2005 with 7 million. In other word ,there is a blog created every 2 minutes. That is how popular with blogging. It take less than 5 minutes to create a Blog. Try it out and i am sure you will love it.

Word Press and Blogger is the two most popular blog platforms available. The question is now which platform should I use? Sometimes I heard people said Word Press is better than Blogger and vice versa.

Let me clarify, if you are a beginner, use blogger as it is a free blog than own by google. You do not have to submit to google for search engine optimization as it is own by google. You only need to submit to Yahoo and MSN.

However the only disadvantage is you do not have control on the blogger design and domain name as it is all provided by Blogger.

As for Word Press, you will need a web hosting and domain name to start blogging. You need to download a plug in software to install to your own hosting. Anyway Word Press also have a free blogging at

My suggestions is, if you are new in blogging, use Blogger and for more advance user you can try out Word Press.

If you plan to make some money with blogging. Google adsense and Affiliate program is the most easier way to start.

Hope this information help. If you have any comments and recommendation please do not hesitate to give me a comments.
