How do you get paid to blog?

I had someone ask me this question recently. Have you ever heard that you have to have money before you can make money? I found this is absolutely a false statement. There are many scams out there on the internet that advertise writing jobs, they ask you to pay a membership fee and they make it look like they are going to give you work, when in actuality they only give you a list of jobs you have to bid on then don't really tell you how to get that job. There are many places on on the web that are looking for blog writers or article writers. Any on the companies you pay anything for up front are all scams.

Is it possible to make a living as a professional blogger? Yes, it is possible to make a living doing it. It may take some time to get to that point until you become a recognized authority on what you are writing about. All of the items I am going to tell you about are absolutely free. Here are some things that may help you on your way.

First there are some questions you should ask yourself...
  1. What is your "niche" the thing you like to blog about? (This is where the key lies in finding a work in what you like to do.)
  2. What is it that drives you?
After you answer these key questions first go to the following websites to get more information on blogging.
  1. Daily Blog Tips
  2. copyblogger
  3. If you don't already have one, open a free blog account.
Here are some websites that are hiring bloggers:
  1. Elance
  2. Guru
  3. Practical eCommerce
  4. Blogger Jobs
  5. ProBlogger
  6. Jobster
  7. Freelance Writing Gigs
