Saying that blogs are a dime a dozen is the understatement of the millennium. With over 112 million blogs monitored by Technocratic, which apparently does not include the over 72 million Chinese blogs and other non English blogs that escaped Technocratic radar, blogging is serious business indeed.

Or at least, it would be serious money when you use blogs to make money on the Web! After all, not every Web busybody monetizes their blogs in the belief that monetization equals prostitutions. But that is digressing.

Instead, let us focus on the ways you can make money on the Web specifically by selling your thoughts and by selling your blog. Here is how.

Sell Your Thoughts

And the drama behind it. That is how the likes of the Go Fug Yourself girls and Perez Hilton blogger make money by putting drama into otherwise mundane matters like fashion faux pas and celebrity gossips for help visit Of course, you can be as helpful as you want on topics like how to instructional blogs on everything from apples to zebras, celibacy to sex, and whatever niche you want to tap into.

And this is where you can make money on the Web niche blogging. Your market will be people who are either fanatical about the topic or into special research on the topic. With the millions of people logging on to the Internet every day, you can find more than a handful of people who will patronize your sites and the advertisers therein.

For example, Jay Brewer launched his blog on a very specific subject: one cup coffee makers. Wonder of wonders! There are people out there who love the topic and soon enough, advertisers came knocking on his online door.

Add in affiliate marketing and featured advertisements and you have more ways to make money on the Web using just your writing savvy and sassy approach to the blog niche! You need not even start big; instead, focus on garnering attention to your blog, sustaining the interest and offering fresh perspectives on old topics for help visit And when you do, watch advertisers trooping to your site! Learning technical requirements and terms will help, too.

Sell Your Blog

If you get tired of blogging about the same topic for months on end and you have run out of fresh ideas and perspectives, then it is time to sell the drama. Don t abandon the blog because you will be putting it at the mercy of online copycats and they will earn money based on your ideas! No can do.

Instead, you can go to the Sitepoint Marketplace where you can participate in the online auctions of Web sites and domain names. This way, you can take a nice profit from the sale of your well established blog while relinquishing control over its maintenance.

Before you go about selling your blog as a means to make money on the Web, remember these selling points, which are not by any chance comprehensive and complete:

Domain Name, including name recognition and value

Date Blog Established

Technorati, Alexa, Google, Yahoo rankings

Web traffic statistics for at least a year, including feeds and unique visitors

Number of posts, articles and comments

Inventory of web assets

Contractual obligations

Indeed, selling your blog can take up time but the money you earn during its successful run and its sale can compensate for the trouble.

Just remember that the Web is the new global marketplace. When you take its dynamics to heart, you will discover to your bank accounts delight that indeed, you can and you will make money on the Web!
