Tip #9 – Write Now and Monetize Later

So a lot of you are probably wondering when I will start talking about making money off your blog. I have not said anything about it yet because it is the LAST thing you want to do AFTER you have created a blog, gained a high level of readership, and are comfortable in your niche.

There are two types of blogs. “Sticky” blogs are designed to attract and retain readers while “non-sticky” blogs are designed to attract readers and then send them elsewhere in exchange for money. The two types of blogs are directly in conflict with each other.

No blog will make any money with advertising if it does not have a readership. In the early days of your blog if you send all of your readers away for a pittance, you will never attract the bigger advertising dollars that are available later on once you have a stable full of dedicated, loyal readers.

So be patient for a few more hours and focus on your writing now. Trust me, making money from your blog is the easy part – getting readers to visit and look at your advertisements is the challenge!
