Blogging from A-Z – A-Z of Blogging – M

M2020

Today’s Blogging from A-Z post brings us the letter M which stands for Monetization in my A-Z of Blogging series.

Monetization.  Monetization is a way to turn your blog into a money-making venture.  There are lots of different ways to monetize your blog, from affiliate links –  links placed into your post that direct your readers to certain products, paid advertising and sponsored posts are just a few ways to monetize your blog.  I have not monetized my blog and think that you really need to think about whether you want to or not and think of ways that you can get your blog working for you in terms of income.  You need to have a strategy in place, followers and regular readers, you need to understand the rules around different monetization options (like affiliate links and sponsored posts need to be clearly labelled as such).

Have you thought of monetizing your blog?  Or do you have any other thoughts on monetization?  I’d love to read any comments you have on this!
