1. Content

Think about the content you wish to put into your blog. Is it going to be a personal journal, information on a certain topic, or even a way to advertise your business?

No matter what the reason content is important. Start your blog with three of four topics at first. This will begin your blog and get you, visitors, to your site.

Most of these visitors will post comments on the topics and when they do, pay attention to them. Look for any questions in these posts; they will probably give you your next topic without even realizing it.

Be sure though, before you post your topics you carefully research them. You want to appear as an expert on the subject you are blogging on, so research is extremely important. The more you know on your topic the more of an expert you will appear.

2. Availability

You need to make yourself available to your visitors. Keep your profile updated and include email instructions for any questions that your visitor may have. The more available you are to the visitor the happier they will be.

3. Personalize

Once you have your blog created, it is time to add links to affiliate offers related to your site.

One of the most popular sites for bloggers to do this with is Clickbank.

There are other sites available besides Clickbank and are fairly easy to find.  All you will have to do is go to your search engine and type in advertising affiliates and you will be amazed at the number of returns.

Businesses are eager to have their business promoted and are willing to pay people to do this and this is a great advantage for a blog.

What is even better is you can make money while advertising. One important thing to remember when you are adding your links is not to go overboard. Too much advertising can turn your visitors away.

No matter what the purpose of your blog maybe if you follow these three easy steps you will be up and blogging in no time. What even better is when you add the affiliate links you can make great money too without even trying.
