    Hi Daintyg,

    1. What niche are you in?
    2. Do you want your blog to be focused on one niche, split into sub-niches?
    3. Are you planning on building a list?

    If all the answers to these were yes; then setting up a blog can be easily done!

    1. Go and buy a hosting package with Host Gator.
    2. Choose a domain name. (Choose your own name if you like for your blog) MYName.com for example
    3. Use C-Panel to set up a wordpress blog.
    4. Find a professional looking Theme for your blog that allows you to capture names and email addresses in exchange for FREE information and training you will provide for your new subscribers.
    5. Aim to update your blog with WOW Factor content that attracts visitors on a consistent basis.
    6. Allow your visitors to comment on your content by using social media plugins and comment luv.

    This allows your content to be seen by tons of people within the social media circles and more by allowing your visitors to share your content throughout the web.

    There is more to it than this but this is more than enough to get you started.

    Hope this helps and have a fantastic weekend!!!

    A blog is a site just that with a blog you can make new update easily.

    So to make a site or blog work you need:

    1. Find a profitable niche.
    2. Setup your site or blog and focus a few products or services and avoid over crowding your blog.
    3. Optimize your blog and pages.
    4. Build back links, buy traffic or any method you prefer.
    5. For product selling I strongly recommend list building.

    You're looking at the whole thing a strange way round, Dainty!

    If you're looking at it in terms of "how to make money from it", then you're looking at it in terms of a business (which is good). But if it's a business, it needs to start with the monetization method, and then analyze the possible ways of achieving the income. One of which might be "blogging". But to start with the concept of "blogging" and then ask "How can I make money from it" is putting the cart before the horse a little. don't you think?

    What is a "blog", anyway? It's a website. It's a content management system. It's a site that's regularly updated. But other sites can be all of those things, too.

    These days, you can use "blogging software" for all kinds of websites that don't look anything like "blogs". And you can use other kinds of "non-blogging software" to make websites that look exactly like blogs and are updated daily. So, you need a really clear concept of why you want to do "blogging" and what you hope to achieve from it, before asking (let alone answering) these other questions, don't you?

    Well, please excuse the observation that I think you're confused because you're looking at it all back-to-front. You need to start with a business model and then see if blogging is the appropriate method to execute it, not start with a "website design technique" and then ask "what can I do with it, to make money?".

    Yes, I have many, all of them making far more than $300 per month.

    Very little indeed. You could just about do it all without spending a penny, but that's probably a second-best idea. A domain name and hosting is all you need, though. About $10 for a domain and anything from $5 per month for hosting. (Or there are some cheaper alternatives). I started off my entire business (multiple sites, multiple niches, etc.) for around $100.

    "Ranked"?!

    You've already decided that you want a business that depends on Google for its traffic, before even knowing what the business model and income sources are?!

    (Anyway, it isn't really the blogs themselves that produce rankings, it's what their owners do with them that determines that).

    I mean this helpfully, not critically, but I think you have things seriously out of order, here - sorry!

    You can get paid to blog by offering article writing and publishing services. You offer to write the article for a client then you publish it on your blog. Make sure you include AdSense ads on your blog so you'll make even more money.

    You can begin selling your services on Fiverr.com until you build your own customer base then charge more. Make sure you tell people that you publish every article you so write so there is no misunderstanding.

    Offer to include up to 3 anchor text links and a video with your post. That'll help your blog rank higher anyway and adds SEO value to your clients.

    You can start with with a free blogger account then buy your own domain for only $10 a year which includes hosting, etc. After you get a few hundred article published the blog will pay for itself with the AdSense :-)
