    I am setting up an e-shop and have had sponsored posts, which is good. I think some of these points are usual once you reach a certain “level” of blogging in terms of following and how well known you are in the blogging community. All in all, great tips.

    For the sponsored Twitter chat, what price range do you charge for that? Do you pitch it to an expert and ask if they’d like to purchase that as a form of advertising for their brand?

    I really loved this post. This is beneficial for all bloggers. As a Fashion Blogger and new online boutique owner it opened my eyes to several different avenues that I was not familiar with. Thanks a million.

    I’m so glad you mentioned The Cools–I’ve been a member since it’ beta testing period and it really is the most convenient way to sell things online. I’m so in love with the format of the site and the community feel it’s managed to integrate.

    Great list! Some of these I already thought about, but your list gives me many more ideas. It’s so easy to draw a blank when it comes to monetizing your blog. This list helps tremendously. Thanks again!

    These 25 ways to make money blogging is useful, but I find one of the hardest things about blogging for me is time. It’s difficult for me to NOT spend a lot of time blogging–and in the end, it makes it drudgery, and hard to make $. I read another really good post about making $ blogging, but it was with speed blogging, in under 30 minutes, and at the same time it gave you tips for getting more traffic to your site. It was really quite good! Giselle

    Good post. We think that you have to keep writing and reaching out. You have a community and you have to connect with them. You have to earn their trust before you earn their money. Expecting any other sequence of events guarantees frustration and disappointment. So we encourage readers to create a helpful blog for a community that needs the information. Then engage with positive – can do – people who will encourage you and keep cheering you on.

    Don’t you agree it is not an overnight possibility at all. Every interview I have heard by leaders on the net says they spent years building and creating their skills before anything “happened”. What do you think?

    Great post! I also just started blogging around the topic of frugal living and personal finances (basically sharing about the mistakes and lessons I’ve learned from) and so far it’s been quite the adventure, and I’m looking forward to much learning to come. I’ll definitely take some of this advice here to heart – keep on blogging!
