There is an interesting concept that pops up now and again on the internet. It is about people who turned to blogging to earn money and pay off their debt. It is an intriguing idea and one that, on a quick search, shows that a number of people are working on blogging off their debts.
What Are They Blogging About?
The most obvious answer to this is debt. People have turned to blogging about their debt online as a way to hold themselves accountable for what they need to pay off. They share posts detailing how much debt they have, how they got into debt in the first place, what they are doing to get out of debt, and money saving ideas, crafts, and habits.
There are many other people, I’m sure, who have started up blogs with dreams of getting out of debt and making good money forever after. They blog about various topics found across the web.
Does It Work?
The process of blogging about personal debt to get out of debt seems to have worked for some. But before you go rushing into this, there are some things you need to realize before you start.
1. It can take months or even years before your blog becomes established and begins earning money.
2. Initial earnings will be pennies.
3. It costs some money to start a blog. Don’t put yourself further in debt if you don’t have to.
4. You will make more money initially by writing and selling list articles to other websites. I get paid $45 to $250 per list article. That is more money than a blog will make initially.
5. You have to be dedicated. Skip a few weeks of blogging and your site pretty much goes dead.
