  • Can I Really Make Money From My Blog? – Reader Question

    By Jennifer Mattern on March 9, 2014
    There are many reasons to start a blog. One popular reason is to make money. When you do that, you treat your blog as a business model in its own right. Many people try to earn money from their blogs. Some succeed. Others fail. And much of that comes down to your strategy, your niche specialty, and the plan you […]

    By Jennifer Mattern on June 14, 2013
    I recently shared a collection of posts and resources on freelance blogging. This week I'd like to look at the other way you can make money blogging -- through blogs of your own.

    By Jennifer Mattern on March 27, 2013
    The post below was originally published on my small business blog after a friend asked me some basic questions about how he could begin to make money blogging. I've since shared it here as a way to help freelance writers build an additional revenue stream (originally on October 16, 2008). And I've now updated it for All Freelance Writing readers with […]
  • The Case for Blogging for Clients (and not Only Yourself)

    By Jennifer Mattern on March 18, 2010
    Many freelance writers have their own blogs. I'm always surprised by how many blogging writers I know don't blog for clients! Why not? More importantly, why should they consider it? Today let's talk about blogging for others and why it might be one of the best things to happen to a Web writer (or someone wanting to become one). Why […]
  • 3 Month Make Money Blogging Challenge – Day 52

    By Jennifer Mattern on November 4, 2009
    It's update time again on the 3 month make money blogging challenge. The blog has started to see its first trickle of pay-per-click (PPC) ad revenue. It's a good thing, but the overall amount is absolutely nothing to get excited about. If anything I'm starting to doubt that this site will reach the goal of a three figure income during […]
  • 3 Month Make Money Blogging Challenge – Day 32

    By Jennifer Mattern on October 15, 2009
    I figured it was time for a quick update on the 3-month make money blogging challenge. It's still going on although I haven't talked about it much. There just hasn't been much to report. Traffic is still minimal, but growing. There hasn't been any ad revenue yet. The good news is that an affiliate program application (the only truly relevant […]

    By Jennifer Mattern on September 15, 2009
    It's day two of my 3-month experiment to show you my usual process for turning a brand new blog into at least a 3-figure monthly money-maker quickly. The blog is up and good to go. I won't be spending a huge amount of time on it today. Here's the plan: I'm currently using some Commission Junction affiliate ads on the […]

    By Jennifer Mattern on September 14, 2009
    If you read my last post, I didn't just give you information on how you could earn decent residual income from your own blog. I promised to launch a 3 month challenge where I'll do just that. I'll start a new blog and spend no money on it other than to register the domain name (and use existing hosting, which […]
  • One Blog’s Journey to $2000 Per Month

    By Jennifer Mattern on June 29, 2007
    I'm not going to go into too much detail here, but today I hit a milestone: $2000 for the month of June from one of my blogs (if you know me and what I've been promoting lately, you may know which one I'm talking about). It's in the business niche. I don't blog because I expect them to be big […]
