How can I make money from my blog?

  1. Hi, I'm new to WordPress.com and would love to start earning some money! The most views I get daily at the moment is 249, but I am willing to pay for advertisement if it involves myself earning money in return...

    I'd love some advice please!

    Thankyou, Fenya.

    The blog I need help with is fenyawells.wordpress.com.

  2. Just like to add, I did try adding some advertisement to my blog and WordPress then suspended my account (i didn't realise this wasnt allowed) is there any way I could have advertisements? Are there any wordpress approved ones?

    Thanks, Fenya.

    This is the only way you can make money from your blog.

  4. How do you make money from a blog? Find out what skills you have that people will pay for, and blog about it. They will then find and hire you.

    Ads is a mug's game.

  6. I didn't say it was a good way to make money. :)

  7. so many people with 15 page views a day expect to get rich quick with ads -

  8. True.

    OT: Pete, you are doing heroic work in the forums today. Thanks!

  9. Does the prohibition on advertising include things like sponsored book giveaways?

    Here's what I want to do: I have a close friend who owns a bookshop. I want him to sponsor a book giveaway. He would give me a book for free for the giveaway. I would then create a "Giveaway" sign-up page on my wordpress.com blog that identified his store as the giveaway sponsor and tell people to check out his store. A reader of my blog would get the book, my friend would have his company featured on my blog, and I would (theoretically) get increased readership. No money would ever change hands.

    I have no interest (at this point) in monetizing my blog. Just trying to establish a reader base by giving something to readers. No ad plugins. Is this kind of activity allowed on wordpress.com?
