Ways to Make Money Blogging

The sole purpose of this blog was to share personal ramblings including things that I love. Over the years things changed and I started to provide structure to the blog in time I started making money. Here are some of the ways to make money blogging. 

Sponsored Posts

Sponsored posts are the most common ways to make money blogging. Back when I realised I could make money blogging, I used to apply for opportunities presented in blogging groups. These days I am fortunate that PR companies and brands reach out to me directly to work on sponsored posts.

Most bloggers also reach out to brands who match their theme and ask for sponsored collaborations. I have only ever done this a few times and been fortunate on them too. Do not be discouraged if they don’t agree to collaborate, others will one day.

Sell Your Products

Selling your products on your blog is another great way to make money online. Whilst I do not personally make anything, my mother has a side hustle selling knitted baby clothes

Other blogs sell planners, calendars and other blogging resources that can help you take the blog to the next level. Most bigger bloggers have even written books which they sell on their blogs.

Affiliate Links

I will share my disclaimer now, I don’t make money via affiliate marketing. Other bloggers seem to credit this as the there biggest way of making money from their blogs. I personally use Amazon Affiliate and though am yet to make money from it, almost everyone loves Amazon.

If you wish to give affiliate marketing a try, then check out affiliate pages like Awin or Share-a-Sale. For fashion bloggers, I would recommend Collective Style shop which allows you to create outfits that can be bought.

Invest Money in Your Blog

I know it sounds counterproductive but investing in your blog can make you money. Little things like buying a domain, changing up your blog theme and using better pictures. Invest in things that make your blog stand out from the crowd but also unique to you.

Think of it this way, outside your stats and reading your posts, the theme is what they look at first. Either has a landing page or create a clear and smart looking home page. Another thing you want to do is make sure your pages load faster.

Passive Income

Passive Income Q2 2018

As I have already mentioned, on this blog, I make money mostly from sponsored posts. I am fortunate to be in a possible where PR companies and brands reach out to me. Over the last 4 years, I have worked with a range of brands and companies. And almost all of them have been sponsored posts or sponsored posts with product review or services review.

Whilst the Q2 2018 report is late, I thought I share what I made in during April thru to June 2018. Please note, the amounts shared do not include PayPal fees or blog maintenance fees.

During the month of April, I made roughly £500 before the aforementioned fees. Then in May, I made around £700 again this was before the relevant fees. Finally, in June I was able to make a £600 before the fees were deducted.

As you can see I didn’t do too badly considering I blog part-time and this is a side hustle. Please note that these are not exact fees but rough estimates rounded. All earnings are declared to our HMRC to be compliant with our national laws.

I do hope that this post helps bloggers who are just starting out or want to monetise their blogs. It is not impossible to make money from the blog but knows that it takes a lot of work. Whether the blog is your full-time job or a side hustle, both require sacrifice.

Why I share my blog earnings

I know most bloggers are not comfortable sharing their earnings and with good reason. For me this is not my main payslip, this is a side hustle that brings me some extra cash. I share these earnings for the following reasons;

  • To motivate other bloggers, to know it is possible to make money from your blog
  • To track my earnings for tax purposes, obviously, everyone does it differently.

This blog has brought so many opportunities my way, I share those so for me it makes sense to share earnings too. Again this is a personal choice, not sharing your earnings is a choice too, let’s remember that.

    This post is exactly what I’ve needed. Bookmarked to read later but just wanted to pop on and say thanks

    It sounds like you are doing really well considering you see blogging as just a side hustle! Be interesting to see how you do once you do get a passive income coming in.

  3. September 18, 2018 / 6:57 pm

    Most of my income comes from sponsored posts right now, i really dont know where to start with affiliates and wouldnt have a clue what to do! lol

  4. September 18, 2018 / 5:07 pm

    These are some great ways to make money blogging – I make most of mine from sponsored posts but am definitely keen to learn more about affiliate links.

    I’ve been blogging for three years and I definitely don’t make much money. But I’m also very picky about who I work with and the downside to working with some companies is that they don’t want to pay you. When I first started out I thought I would do a few reviews for free just to get myself out there. That was a bad idea. Soon, I was getting loads of offers to work with me but for no money. Plus, the things I was reviewing I didn’t really believe in and I absolutely think that in order to sell anything or do a proper review of a product, you must believe in it. I do like your tips though. It is a great way to make a little extra money if you desire it.

    Thank you for sharing this information, I have been blogging for a year now and have barely earned a lot of money. I have clicked the links you attached and will check them out xx

  7. September 18, 2018 / 10:59 am

    I am planning on blogging full-time this month, I have been blogging part-time for the past few years and have been lucky to make an income each month. I have never tried affiliate marketing, but I think I will have to look into it x

    Awesome tips! This would be quite helpful especially if you are new to blogging.

    A blog means a lot of hard work, but also a lot of time dedicated and some money investement. To earn some money blogging you need patience and creativity. You don’t need to stay there and wait for money, but move on and use your creativity earn something from it.

    All my blog income comes from sponsored posts, I am an amazon affiliate but in three years I’ve not earned a penny from it!xx

  11. September 18, 2018 / 2:44 am

    I’ve definitely made money from blogging. But I have to admit from time to time I feel burnt out and drained. But I’ve been doing this as a side hustle for almost ten years now and I prefer it over selling products online to friends and hoping for their support. I’m not really a salesperson so I can’t really do those jobs.

  12. September 18, 2018 / 2:16 am

    These are some seriously great ideas for making more money blogging. I need to try a few of these out.

  13. September 18, 2018 / 2:14 am

    Traffic is the best way to get new clients and ad offers. These are some great way to help as well!

  14. September 17, 2018 / 7:37 pm

    Great tips. I had a hard time investing in my blog and I think it hindered me, I finally broke down and invested in a better host and it was the best thing I ever did for my blog.

  15. September 17, 2018 / 7:27 pm

    Well done! I think it is nice that you are sharing your success so that others can see that it can be done. Sponsored posts are a valued source of income for me, alongside my freelance work. I agree with Talya in her comment regards to affiliate links, they don’t contribute much to my income at all.

    I think it is great that you are sharing how to make money on your blog with others. I do have a product-a cookbook- but I really need to find a few more to do for a side hustle.

    I utilize sponsored posts and affiliate income. It is a good side hustle for sure. I am always interested in learning more ways to do so.

  18. September 17, 2018 / 3:29 pm

    It’s getting harder and harder IMHO, lol. I’m not one that uses affiliate links, they are far too much work with too little return in my own experience, but who knows. Maybe I’m doing it poorly.

  19. September 17, 2018 / 3:18 pm

    Oh wow! That’s brilliant for a side hustle. It’s interesting to see where you make money from on your blog and what options could be open to bloggers looking to make an income.

  20. September 17, 2018 / 2:06 pm

    Like you, my main source of income from my blog is sponsored posts but I definitely want to explore affiliate links in the future. I think there is a lot more I could do!

    Very well written especially for the blogger just starting out who is wondering how to go about earning some income from their blog. Comes down to personal preference.

  22. September 17, 2018 / 1:10 pm

    These are some great ideas! I do like to make money from my blog now and again. I also love to be able to write what I want, so I try not to boggle down my blog with constant sponsored posts.

  23. September 17, 2018 / 12:52 pm

    I have to say most of my income comes from sponsored posts I peresonally choose not to get involved with affiliate links as I’m not really convinced how much money can truly be made from these.

    I am not doing affiliate links at the moment, but I do ok with sponsored posts. These are all great ways to earn some extra money.

  25. September 17, 2018 / 10:38 am

    These are all great ways to make money blogging. As a blogger, I make most of my money from sponsored posts and the ads on my site. I do make some money through affiliates like Amazon and others, but not as much as I’d like.

  26. September 17, 2018 / 8:39 am

    You’re so talented. I wish I knew how to knit. This post has so many great nuggets to keep on hand.

  27. September 17, 2018 / 3:15 am

    I think your doing really well to say this is a side hustle. Man…. If only I could make that as a full time blogger each month! I do like this post and need to learn more about affiliate marketing.
