Why Blog? For money????

I'm often asked how I came to Blogging, and for those readers who do not know, I started my first blog when I went to Ireland in 2005, and I kept a travel blog on Typepad.com. It was a site that one paid a monthly fee for, and I subsequently found a more interesting site Blogger which was also FREE, and started a number of other blogs here, and at other places.

People are interested in my house sitting too - so I can combine two of my great interests in the one site. Then people want to know how to create a blog, and then they hear that you can blog for money.

Wow, that's a whole new topic that I won't venture deeply into here, but there are several ways. One is to have advertisements from Google on your blog - which I do, and another is advertising on blogs, using a service such as Smorty. (I love the cute names that folk create too!)

Smorty is a great service connecting advertisers with bloggers. Advertisers will pay bloggers to write opinion posts with links back to the advertisers site. You need to work on your blog for a while - Smorty needs to know that you understand blogging, and have a commitment to regular posts. So you CAN
get paid for blogging

Blogging and writing for Smorty is a great way to get paid to blog, and for folk who are prolific writers, it is a fabulous way to earn extra income. If you are an advertiser, Smorty is a great place to advertise, and if you are a Blogger interested in blogging for money - make your way quickly to Smorty. It is easy to use, and they pay through PayPal.

Someone left a comment, and I "approved" it before I read it, and it simply disappeared. So if you (anonymous) left a comment here and it has gone, it was not intentional, and if you visit again, I'd love to read your comment. Sorry.

Weird, first the comment disappears, and then when I put it in, it reappears.
