Blogging for money, anyone?

If you know me, you know I love money. But then again, who does not right?

Apart from that, I also love to write. Write about things that happened to me, my kids, the man I married, my country, my money thoughts etc. It is just great to be able to document memories for later reading pleasure. This is especially true for my kids.

Lately, I have also ventured into setting up my own paid domains on financial thoughts and reviews and playing with the settings etc. I learned about pings, paid ads, blog advertising, SEO, widgets, AdSense, Paypal and so much more. Penny has been great in helping with this.

Now, what is better than being able to combine my love to write with the ability to also earn in the process? Some friends of mine seem to think that this will take the passion out of blogging which is supposed to be fun. But I disagree, if at all, I think blogging for money actually enhances the passion even more.

What about you? Are you blogging for fun or are you blogging for money?

Hey there.
So there i was, blog hopping and stamping and i bounced onto your site =)
well,personally,i blog to capture my mind at that particular time and preserve the memories thats stored in my mind.More like an outlet for my feelings.
But i would disagree to the fact that blogging for money kills the passion for it. Its good that the passion brings benefits to us.
And yes, who wouldn't want to earn more.If the way to earn is legal and safe,why not?? =)

WSL - Yup, you are the one who is in it for fun ...

Latiquesha - Thanks for dropping by! I agreee it is good for capturing and preserving all those special moments, thank goodness for that. If we are still sticking to dear diaries, I would have no memories at all!

Me, me, me, me!! But I find the time spent on blogging fun and satisfying, so it doesn't really feel like I'm doing it solely for the money. Like you, I find it fantastic to be doing something I like and earning from it at the same time. What's not to like about blogging for money? :)
