    I agree, most people are lucky ( me included ) if we make $5.00 to $25 a MONTH! If I did not work outside the home I would try to make a living writing and blogging but as my life is right now I have to go out to work, no computers around either..

      Yes, but like you said before building up content is important. You never know, there maybe a time when you are both making a good living from our blogs.

      Also true, Brenda. Blogging should have an undivided time it’s like writing a novel or a screenplay, it requires a lot of time, focus and of course money.

      It is possible but I just read an article about making your own products to sell on your blogs. I would think that e-books would be one of the best ways to go with this.

    Having a big following on social media helps. Unfortunately I don’t have many followers so promoting my blogs isn’t easy. I’ve been lucky enough to find a good place to share my bonsai posts, but I really struggle to get readers for my more general blog.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve tried Google+ and it does bring me a few views, but not many.

    Great advice, Brenda! I think I’d disagree about needing knowledge of computer programming. Though it does help to understand a little HTML, it really isn’t necessary to know programming in order to blog. You should know how to use a word processor and how to enter data into the blog’s submission form. You should also know how to find safe images and how to write an image credit.

    I’d definitely agree with you on needing a decent grasp of English – plus, you should understand the differences between writing for print and web writing. And marketing, especially social media marketing, is really important to web writers and bloggers too.
