Blog for cash

If you do decide to generate income from your blog, then don’t be shy about it. Go ahead, post Ad's and not just one little ad at the bottom of your page, hidden under all the clutter. Take a look at the tools available on the site and use them! Make sure you get any software you might need. Like feeds, search engines, tagging. It's what they are there for.

Go to "My Account" located at the top right of your page. Next go to "Adsense" if you havn't already signed up, you can do it there. Under the "Adsense Setup" tab you will find a list of products you can sign up for. Fill out the requiered information, press "Generate Code" now that you have the code (copy/paste), go back to your "Dashboard" and select "Layout" you will notice a tab marked "Add a Gadget" a screen will pop up showing you items that you can add to your blog site, choose "HTML/Javascript" paste your code there, dont forget to add the title of the script. (you chose the title when you filled out the information to get the code)

This will allow you to add You Tube, Google search and other features to your blog site. After you are set up, you can return to Adsense and change/modify your features.

Don't get discouraged, it could take some time to generate traffic to your blog, you could speed things up by linking your blog to other blogs and letting people know your here. Remember this... your not an employee, you have to sell your blog. Make a note of what people are interested in and set up links.

Most importantly!!!! Don't overwhelm yourself! It's important to have fun, enjoy yourself and learn from any mistakes you might make.
