Do You Have What it Takes to Make Money Online with Blogging?

Do You Have the Right Stuff to Make Money Blogging?

Are you cut out to be a blogger?  Are you willing to do what it takes to be successful and learn the tricks of the trade to make money blogging?

If you answered yes to the above questions then you are part way there.  But there is more to blogging success then the will to make money.  You need to have the entrepreneurial spirit and qualities to reach your achievements.

Ready for the long haul? 
Blogging does not usually produce fast money results.  Are you willing to tough it out for months with no income?  Then when you have the traffic and you are still not making any money you need to be willing to revamp everything and change it up so that is can be profitable.

Personal Social Networking:
Blogging or other work online can leave you devoid of social contact. So you need to be prepared to not have the advantage of having coworkers that you can talk to on a lunch break, after work, etc.  You can combat the loneliness of the quiet blogging life by being active on Facbook or just by picking up your cell phone.  You can even join groups to give you some social contact during the week.  Just make sure your social life doesn't get in the way of your blogging priorities. 

Steps to Blogging Success:
  • Make a Blogging Business Plan.
  • List your monthly money making goals  - do what it will take to try to keep those on track.
  • Make blog posting goals and stick to it.
  • Don't put all of your eggs in one basket - multiple streams of income.
  • Stay focused in your niche.
  • Keep learning for success.

As a blogger you need the ability to make goals and find the ways to reach them.  You need to have the drive to push yourself beyond what others in your niche are willing to do.  Make sure you have the time to devote to your new blog and invest your time wisely.

Sometimes being desperate for money can be a big push for people who want to make money with blogs.  There are plenty of success stories out there and there are just as many failure stories too.  If there is something you don't understand or cannot do just ask someone who is already successful.  If they don't answer you then find the answer on your own or ask someone else, but find the solution and you will progress.  Hopefully that progression will lead to money making blogging opportunities.
