A little while ago I sent up a make money online (MMO) blog called World of Angel. (MMO blogs are written on the subject of how to make money with a blog.) It was my “big idea” and was supposedly going to make me rich. It didn’t because make money online blogs are just about the dumbest type of blogs you can launch in the current market place.

The reason for this is that blogs about making money online or making money blogging generally don’t make any money. The big guns like John Chow and Darren Rowse make a fortune because they started doing it before everyone else.

There are a few, like Yaro Starak, who do make money online with these blogs, but those guys are experts in their fields – and I mean experts. They know this blogging game inside and out.

My make money online blog made me a little cash here and there, but it certainly wasn’t worth the time and effort I put into it. There are far better avenues to explore when it comes to blogging. If you want to make serious money blogging, you need to have a niche and you need to be doing something that stands out from the crowd.

On my blog here I’ve compiled a list of the blogging services that I’ve used to make money online. If you have a blog, especially one about Thailand, and you want to start using it to make money, it’s relatively straightforward and there are a number of ways you can go. You probably won’t get rich any time soon, but a little extra cash flow never hurt anyone, and you will more than likely do much better than if you just have Adsense on your blog.

I have used and made money with all of the services I recommend. Overall, I’ve made a few thousand dollars through blogging, but there is always room for improvement. What I’ve learned over the past couple of years has taught me not to waste my time with stuff that I don’t enjoy and that isn’t profitable.

  1. Good post Matt.

    Isn't it true that 99.9% of blogs aren't being rewarded in terms of time and effort by the author? I blog for fun and because I enjoy it; anything else is a bonus.

    The 'else' isn't just money from Goggle in my case. I've got media coverage for my magazines and consultancy work for my company as a result of my blog.

    If you enjoy blogging and don't treat it as a chore then it will show and the benefits, financial or otherwise, will come.

  2. The game has changed – now it's all about building blog networks and outsourcing the content for $3 an article. They won't be the best blogs out there, but with the right marketing and keyword research, they don't need to be that good to drive traffic… As Dan said, you need the traffic before you start getting clicks.
