Is it still profitable to start a blog? Absolutely! You may have come across many suggestions for a blog as a means of additional income. We speak of additional income and assume instant results, but it isn’t the case with blogging. If you are looking for quick money, check out these survey sites.

While on the outside bloggers make it look all nice and easy, I will tell you right away. Blogging requires hard work and dedication. A year in, and  I know I still slack every now and then because some days you just don’t have the capacity to sit and write and Pin your blog posts on Pinterest.

But does it mean it’s not worth it? The simple answer is, that it is absolutely worth it to start a blog. If you haven’t started your own blog, it’s not too late. I do share some tips on how you can make a success of it. If it wasn’t profitable to start a blog, I wouldn’t be in the process of adding two additional blogs.

Of course, we blog for profits, which is why I will share with you, how you can get these profits rolling in. We love money over here and every day we get to breathe, we stretch our horizons to earn more money. If you are not a fan of money, this is probably the wrong place for you hehe. But I do blog about food so good luck.

Affiliate Marketing

The beauty of affiliate marketing is that you earn income just by promoting other companies’ products. You don’t spend hours perfecting products, all you do is promote and share using your assigned link. Two months into a very inconsistent commitment to blogging, I earned my first $100 from Bluehost. I had just signed up with Bluehost as an affiliate and as a beginner, I was super excited when I made my first referral! Now you can imagine the number of affiliate marketing groups I have joined.

Google Adsense

The traffic to your blog largely determines how much revenue you generate regarding Ads. Google Adsense is not the only platform you can sign up with for advertisement on your blog. Mediavine is also another platform you can utilize. While the minimum requirements to be accepted on Mediavine are high, you can get in if you are dedicated and the payment is higher than Adsense.


You can start your own e-commerce store on the blog and sell items from different manufacturers. The good part about dropshipping is that you don’t keep stock, you sell as and when demand occurs. You can visit our shop and see if you can hook yourself up with something nice!

 Digital products

There is no ending to the revenue you can generate by simply creating digital products and selling them. You can sell your products on your blog or platforms like Etsy. To create digital products, you can use platforms like Canva.

These are just a few ways you can earn money while blogging. But there are so many ways that can generate monthly income through blogging. We are on the sixth month of the year, and if you start a blog today you can be monetized by the end of the year.

The most important part is to start. Here’s how you can start a blog. I have already purchased a domain for the new blog I intend to start. By end of this year, we will be discussing a different story of how I will be generating more income. Will you be starting a new blog or a new side hustle? Let me know in the comments.
