A blog is your personal online space where you share your experiences with the world. Once your site starts generating good traffic, then you can earn money through it. Here, are five ways that you can do so.

Hence you can charge them for the blog post depending on the reach of your website.
As a blogger, you will review many products to help your audience to make a sound decision. A lot of time brands will even pay to do a good review about their products. Which one can do in exchange for money, but make sure to tell your readers that it is a sponsored post? So, they are fully aware of the authenticity of your website.
