I first discovered blogs about a year ago. Naive me thought they were just a way for bloggers to express their feelings and entertainment for the readers. I have since learned that blogging can be big business. Some bloggers are earning 6 and 7 figure incomes with their blogs.
There are lots of blogs I visit but I have 3 very favorite blogs, 2 of them do not use any kind of income generating advertising but 1 of them does. I have been thinking about this for several months and signed up yesterday with Google Adsense.
So far, I have earned $1.65 in just one day. It does not sound like much for one day but it could certainly multiply over a course of a year.
I am dipping my toes into blogging income, I hope it goes well but if the ads become a problem, I will discontinue them immediately.
Terri asked how to do this. I just went to the Google.Adsense.com site and followed their instructions. Because of the income, I did have to fill out an online IRS W-9 form with my SS number. There are different payment options but I requested to have a check mailed to me so I did not have to enter any personal banking information. They don't pay until you earn at least $100.
