Receiving any amount of traffic to your blog is always the forefront of a newbie bloggers attention. Here 4 useful ways to get traffic to your blog.There no point to blogging, if you nobody going to read it. It can feel a little empty to find that nobody is reading your writing. In the beginning, it can feel dishearten and this is the point where you give up blogging. Well, don’t. Sure, in the beginning, it can feel almost worthless to even have a blog. But I can assure you, once you start the engine, it will keep on running. But you have to be the one to turn the key.
Making money from blogging isn’t always easy. We all know people do it, but how do they manage to sustain themselves? Sure, there’s some money to be found in advertising. But, unless you’re hitting the big time, it’s rarely enough to pay the rent. Not to mention that the income isn’t reliable. And, when there isn’t much to play with in the first place, that’s not a good thing. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t make a go of blogging. It just means you need to further your earning potential. Depending on what your blog is about, your options will vary. For some blogs, workshops and other such services could work well. But, even if you don’t think these things would suit your site, all hope is not lost.
It seems like the case in the business/blogging scene today, that there’s blog after blog after blog that looks like a simple copy of the last one you just left. The same colors are used, the same content is shared—even the words seem to be the same. But, in a sea of photocopies, there are still ways to stand out, be noticed, and increase your chances of standing out in a world of options. Starting your own business can be really rough, especially when money is a stretch for you in the first place, so you have to make sure you find the right market for your ideas. Getting to know where you should approach from can be very risky as trends change all the time, so you have to know what you want to sell and how you want to sell it.
Of all the side hustles you could possibly consider, blogging is far and away the most accessible. If you’ve got an internet connection and a subject you want to write about, you’re only a few steps away from being able to embark on a blogging journey. One of the major differences between blogging and other side hustles is that blogging has the potential to be more than a side hustle. Blogging is a business in and of itself if you don’t mind putting the work and investment in. Thousands of people are using their blog as their sole source of income and, over time, you might want to think about doing the same.
Welcome to my first monthly income report. I’m nervous about this, so bear with me! People often ask me how to make money blogging, which is why I’m excited to finally publish an income report. I remember reading income reports from other bloggers a long time ago and thinking it was insane. How could they make a full-time living by running a blog?! It’s never been easier or harder to make an income online. I say that because it’s easy in the way that starting a blog is easier now. You can set up hosting, get a beautiful theme, and start writing in like half an hour. It’s also harder because there are SO many more people blogging now. If you’re trying to stand out online, you have to compete with BILLIONS of other people. Legit, billions.
It’s a well-established fact that proofreading your writing can be a very painful task. People who write for a living—as well as anyone who has to write important emails or assignments—can tell you that proofreading your work before you turn it in or press send is essential. With proofreading, every little bit of help is welcome. The autocorrect and spell-check tools most word processors have are great, but they only amount to a single line of defense.

Even worse and more confusing, there are lots of blogging “experts” that only make money blogging about making money blogging
One of the biggest pieces of advice I got when I started blogging was that I needed to utilize link parties. After doing a little research I realized that a link party is a way to connect with other bloggers, highlight some of your best content, and possibly get featured on bigger blogs. A way of SHOWING OFF your stuff per say!
