Why NOW Is The Time To Become A Professional Blogger

If you enjoy writing and would enjoy earning some extra money, then you might want to become a professional blogger.

A professional blogger is someone who earns money by writing (blogging) about stuff that people want to read. The money is earned when people click on the advertisements or they buy a product recommended by you in your blog post.

But why is Now the best time to become a pro blogger and start a blog?

Over the last few years, people have changed how they shop. In the past, we would make three or four stops. We would go to the butcher for meat, grocer for groceries, the mall for clothing and the eye doctor for glasses. Now people go to the big box department stores, like Walmart, where they can shop for everything in one spot.

When was the last time you were at your local mall? If it was recently, you probably would have seen many stores closing their doors. This is because the traffic of customers with money in hand has slowed down.

In most households, both parents work full-time and often one or both parents work two jobs. Life is just too busy to make several stops. It is easier to go to a big box store.

But more recently there is a new trend. And that is with the huge growth of online shoppers. More people than ever in history are shopping online to avoid the crowds and save time, as well as money.

As a profession blogger, you have the ability to satisfy all of these needs for people and you can make a living for yourself in the process. 🙂

Niche Marketing through blogging is one of the funnest ways to make money.image courtesy of http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

Niche Blogging is when you create a blog that solves a problem for someone. Let me explain. Let’s say there is a crowd of people in the world who have an ongoing problem with their pet bringing fleas in the house. They have tried everything and can’t get rid of the fleas. So they go online looking for help and find your blog. While reading your blog post, they decide to take your advice and buy a product that you recommend.

It’s a win-win for both of you. They get rid of their fleas and you make money. Imagine helping hundreds of readers. The more people you help, the more money you can make.

The reason I love professional blogging, as a way to make money, is because I get to be in control. With a traditional job, I don’t feel in total control.

When you are a professional blogger, you get to decide on your niche. It can be anything you want. You are an expert. And writing about something that stirs your passion is fun!

When you create a website (blog) about a topic you are passionate about you can then monetize that site. And there are many different ways to do it.

You can do affiliate marketing, sell your own products, add advertising programs like Google Adsense or even build a list.

Things are tight with the economy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make money online. I am really enjoying making money from Amazon, affiliate programs and Google Adsense.

If you have been hit hard with the current economy, now is the time to become becoming a professional blogger.

    I agree, Wendy! Now is the perfect time to become a pro blogger; especially since it appears the economy is not going to improve much any time soon. But the best reason to do it is because it’s fun! Making some money while having fun; definitely not your typical job!

    Hey Wendy,

    I myself use Amazon Affiliates to market products on places such as my website and hubpages. However, I see that many people are clicking on the affiliate links but never buying the product! Its hard to see this because I work hard to promote the products and since people are clicking on them, that means they are interested. But how can I get them to BUY?????

      One of my tricks is to use the exact name of the product including model number in your title and first paragraph. Often people do research by reading peoples sites. When they are ready to buy, they type the name with model number into the search engine. If they come to your site, they will probably buy. Also, make sure you are solving a problem. Focus on how this product will help them.

    Hi Wendy,
    Don here from WAU. I finally got through your site. I couldn’t reach you on WA because I’ve been “write revoked”????
    I asked a question about what I thought was a scam and it turned out to be a link to another site. Totally inadvertently and I removed it immediately, but I’m booted. I don’t know when I can write again. Can’t get a hold of Kyle.

    Anyway, you site is awesome ! I really like the Jaaxy Wordsearch you have. My Jaaxy Affiliate account account doesn’t have that. (I don’t think I ever saw it anyway)

    Your site makes mine look overly cluttered. I am goind to ask you to look at it and let me know if I should change anything. I know your busy, but you’re one of the first people I ever met, followed and got followed by so I always see your name floating around.

    Again, what a great site!

      Hi Don.
      Thanks for the comment and I’m sorry you can’t write at WA. I looked at your site and found the content to be very good, but I was honestly really confused. Is it a site about e-trading? It is really important to make sure your links and adds match what you are writing about. If your target audience is looking for e-trade information, they are not going to be interested in a WA link. And an affiliate marketer wouldn’t want information about e-trading. I hope this makes some sense. In other words, don’t just place ads hoping that someone will click them. They wont unless it is on topic.
      Thanks again for reading. 🙂

    NOW is the time for me to become a blogger because I finally understand the economy of time vs full-time employment. The internet is a great tool for monetization and it’s legitimate. So why not use my free time to build an online business that can potentially create a passive income for the future?

      I agree with you 100%! And if you do affiliate marketing it really is free money, meaning no investment other than time.
