Blogging is a very productive activity whether the blog is for personal, informational, educational, or entertainment purposes. Many people blog, primarily, to let others to view and never think that they can make a little spare change from it. Looking at side bars of my blog, you can see plenty of advertisements that pertain to the field of my blog. These ads have the potential to bring in cash, depending on the amount of traffic.

Lets say you like to blog about video games. On that blog, you give reviews of a certain game or system, notify others of discount prices, and provide upcoming news of the gaming industry. Now what ads would seem appropriate?

Google Adsense - Pretty much a given. They provide relevant ads to the blog content. People make hundreds from the program.

Commission Junction

They are at the center of hundreds of companies that wish to provide affiliate marketing. From here, you'll find many ads concerning your topic. From just a little searching I found these appropriate advertisers for a video game site:

  • eBay
  • Buy.com
  • GameFly
  • Best Buy
  • Newegg.com

Similar to Commission Junction providing affiliate marketing for other companies. And here I found:
  • EBgames
  • Gamestop
  • Bidz
  • J & R
  • Toy R Us
  • Walmart
Putting up these ads are simple and quick. Just copy the provided scripts and html codes and the ads will appear fully functional. Once the visits become plentiful, you'll see substantial income.

Next, here is a site that PAYS you to blog. Basically, they have companies who want others to write a post about a certain topic. If there is a new video game and they want someone write a review of the game and post in on a blog, you'd qualify. They pay $25 for your first post! Afterwards, compensation varies depending on the requests.


These are only a FEW of the many ways you can use your blog to make a little spare change. Many other programs out there exist and it is up to you to take advantage of them. Blogging provides a person with not only possible income but you become more productive. This blog definitely improved my writing, allowed expression of my thoughts and experiences, and gave me the opportunity to learn and use computer coding. It would probably do the same for anyone else who has a blog. Put this beneficial activity into your list of hobbies!

This blog is related to Bidz on Ebay that Bidz.com combines the markdowns of a dollar store, the format of an auction house, and the convenience of the Internet to bring sparkling deals to customers. I recommend that this is the best online business site for making money.
