I'm sorry to inform you, but just having a blog does not make you money.  You've purchased the domain.  You've launched your blog.  You've written maybe even a year of posts.  Having the best layout will not earn you money.  You will be the one earning the money.  

 

There are many paid writing opportunities.  However, a lot of these opportunities will not come knocking at your blog door.  Yes, I have seen it happen and I am regularly approached for paid blogging opportunities.  The first step {after maintaining a healthy blog of course!} is to seek out job opportunities.

 

Think of it this way.  When you are job hunting, do you sit on your couch waiting for companies to call and offer you a position?  No!  You put your resume out, you answer job postings.  The same is required in social media.  Unless you are a top blogger, which most of us are not... you need to put your name out there and apply for jobs.

 

Here is a list of sites you will want to hit when seeking paid blogging opportunities:

 

BloggerJobs.biz

 

Craigslist

 

Freelance Writing Jobs

 

Indeed.com

 

Problogger  

 

Media Bistro  

 

Writers Weekly  

 

All of these were found by simply "Googling it".  Go to Google.com {or any search engine for that matter} and search various terms such as: "paid blogging jobs"  "paid blogging opportunities"  "paid writing jobs" etc,...

 

As always, make sure to weigh each opportunity carefully and do not share personal information without considering who you are giving it to.  There are scams and you need to be the one protecting yourself from them.

An up and coming amazing community for monetization is Sverve. The platform feels like a mashup of Pinterest (with visuals) and Linkedin (with connections) plus provides numerous opportunities for making some cash with your blog. When you join, connect to me (Kimberly Rues) -- I'd love to meet you :)

I work for a blogging platform that pays 100% commissions. It is also rated in the top 10 work at home opportunities from scamxposer.com. Definitely NOT a scam.

I mostly use PayPerPost and the other IZEA sites to make money blogging.

As for the remainder of the work, I freelance write, draw and design. C:

I would also add that BlogHer.com takes submissions and syndicates posts they choose and the pay is $50 per piece. I just got my first one, due to be featured 7/12/12 on my post The Don't Do A Damn Thing Award! I Just Like Your Blog. I am so excited!
