A new year is supposed to be a time for renewed efforts and planning for bloggers who want to make more money. First let me wish you a Happy New Year and Prosperous new beginning.
Now, let me tell you how you can make a regular income stream from blogging in 2012.
Number 1: Post Regularly:- I know it can become a bit tedious if you have more than one blog. Try streamlining your work. Let’s say you have three blogs to manage. Now, try posting two articles on each of the blogs on a rotational basis. When I started blogging, I never had this idea but but time I noticed that a regularly updated blog is much more vibrant … meaning more posts means more readers. So, it is consistency that counts!
Number 2: Buy a domain:- Are you serious thinking of making money or simply just blog? Answering this question will help you decide whether to buy a domain name. If your answer is “Making Money”, then a domain name is a must. Don’t rely on abc.blogspot.com or abc.wordpress.com. The cost of a domain is so cheat it won’t even pinch your pocket. It could be only $7-10 per year! In India, you can get .IN domains even at an offer rate of Rs 99/- only.
A domain will give you an identity that will help your readers the ease of visiting your blog again and again.
Number 3: Buy Hosting Account:- I know this may be a bit technical or ‘costly’ for bloggers who are just starting to dream of making big in blogosphere. I too use to think that why should we spend ‘big bucks’ while we can use blogging platforms like Blogspot (I still use it for Chiprang.com) but in the last three years we have purchased hosting accounts from good service providers like GoDaddy.com and Bluehost.com to host some of our sister sites like Mothers Forum, AskIndia.Info, Mizoram Express, etc. Result, if you ask me is that the returns have gone up from good be better. The earnings have gone up as having your own domain name with a hosting account gives you more exposure to search engines.
