Creating and maintaining a blog is one of the best ways to market yourself or your company on the internet. Blogging provides a wealth of opportunities for both yourself and your readers.

You may now start to wonder how you can use your Blogs and articles to generate passive income. Like I previously mentioned, you can in fact start a residual income if you know how to use blogging and article marketing the right way. However, it does take some practice. It can be very easy if you are passionate about blogging or writing articles. All you have to do is have a plan to put into action, and stay focused about it. Here are some ideas on how you could do exactly this, and start making some serious money online through your articles and blogs.

Engaging blogs will not only encourage readers to come back but will also ensure that they invite their friends to check out the blog to. This is great – social sharing of your blog posts can make them go viral and make your reader count increase instantly. As long as you are providing them with a reason to come back related to the purpose of your blog then you will find success.

There’s one reason for this: the Web search engines, like Google and Yahoo. The search engines love Blog s, visiting them frequently to add blogs to their indexes. This means that a Web site can get an amazing amount of traffic very quickly. Targeted traffic translates to sales and money. As more and more businesses swarm online, and discover Blog, they hire freelance writers to blog for them.

2) Post often. There are many different theories on how often you should post to your blog. Some people will tell you every day, some a few times a week the only right answer is what you have time to do. It is pretty obvious the only way to get more blog traffic is to post to your blog but if you are trying to post every day and you just simply don’t have time you in time the quality of the content you are posting is going to suffer and that’s not going to help you. I do suggest that you post at LEAST 2-3 times a week to your blog but understand that’s not the only part of the equation. There have been many times I haven’t had time to do that and still continue to get a stead flow of traffic to my blog.

You will also need to continue to upgrade as your blog grows. This means classes, workshops and conferences. Hey, you have a little blog that wants to be a big blog — perhaps a blog star? Education, travel and networking are necessary. Who said raising a blog baby would be cheap?

Now get out there and get some inspiration! Have a search online for some similar blogs, articles and any other content that is related to your blog’s purpose and audience. Learn how others write for your audience in your industry or niche and see how they are creating the content that you desire.
