One very popular choice for a home-based Internet business is to become what is known as a blogger. Blogging involves setting up your own website and then filling it, day by day, with a chronological series of articles, reviews or diary style writings, which can generate cash via allowing companies to place advertisements on your site, or incorporating affiliate marketing on the blog.

Most blogs combine text with images, links to other blogs and web pages, and various other media in some way related to the blogís topic or topics. Most blogs are interactive, allowing readers to ma
ke comments. The most common form of blog is the personal one; which is a form of ongoing diary or commentary by an individual. Some of these blogs can gain quite an extensive following, though it is rare that they will enter the mainstream and become truly popular.

Other kinds of blog are corporate or business blogs (used for the purposes of marketing or public relations) and genre blogs (focused exclusively on one particular topic be it politics, art, music, or some other niche). Blogging has exploded in popularity in recent years, and while anyone and everyone can set up blogs, many mainstream writers and journalists have also created their own blog sites.

There are many ways to make money via your blog, and that money can range from pocket money to a little more spending money per week and for some of the most wildly successful bloggers, a replacement for their full time job. This can happen as a result of advertising and affiliate marketing on your blog, from such sources as Google AdSense, Amazon Associates, various miscellaneous advertising or affiliate programs, and even private advertising sales or sponsorships.

There are even some sites out there that compensate bloggers directly for writing about their products or services or other websites. Of course, all the advertising, affiliate programs or indeed blogging in the world isnít going to do you much good if no one is reading your blog (and thus clicking on those adverts) in the first place. So how can you get your little blog noticed out there on the World Wide Web?

Making sure your blog is well written and offers quality content is a good start. Ensure that the blog contains lots of links, to other articles, to other related sites, YouTube videos etc. Include pictures in your blog and be sure to add your blog to the lists of free blog directories such as Blog Catalog.

Feed your blog to Feedburner. This allows your readers to get email notifications when you have posted something new. If you write on other sites, including social networking sites, link to your blog at every opportunity. Create an email signature that links to your blog, thus ensuring that every person who receives an email from you has the opportunity to immediately visit your site. Comment on other peopleís blogs so that the trackbacks will lead back to your own.

Learning to run a successful blog can seem to like an intimidating and overwhelming feat at first, but if you can master the art, it can be an effective way of generating extra income.
