Do you want to make money on your blog?

Do you want to get paid to blog?

If you are a blogger, chances are you spend hours upon hours creating content. You search second-hand shops for props, you take classes on photography, you sign up for social media webinars, you cook, you craft, you write, and you pour your soul into your little spot on the Internet.

But what if you could get PAID for all the hours you spend curating your blog?

That would be awesome!! I know.

But if you already sell banner ads on your blog, you’ve probably noticed something: the money trickles in by the cent, not the dollar. Unless you’re pushing 1 million followers, ads might not amount to a substantial income for you.

So what else is there? How can you turn your passion into profit in 2014, when ads are D-E-A-D?

There are PLENTY of ways to make money on your blog in 2014, you just have to be a little more creative about it than you did in 2004.

::Sighs. Remembers when followers fell from the sky like money floating from branches of trees and there were basically no competitors out there vying for your readers’ precious views.::

On this week’s episode of SkillcrushTV, I’m sharing some blogger secrets. Ad sales might be history, but I rounded up 7 (SEVEN!) ways you can make a living on your blog WITHOUT ad sales, and without selling your soul.

So go buy yourself a URL and start blogging – what if the job you were dreaming of was right under your nose all along?
