There are literally millions of online money making opportunities. Sadly, the majority of these online money making opportunities require selling and/or recruiting; which most of us simply do not want to do.

Unfortunately, I could never make that plan a reality. If you are able to make a lot of money from a single blog, I applaud you. However, for most people, it seems to me that is unlikely that they will ever reach their goal. Instead I recommend that you do the opposite.

Tips, tricks and hacks certainly work — but the pale in comparison to the basics. Show me a website that has completed the basics and I’ll show online blogs you a website that’s earning a full-time income.

Making the content short and snappy for your readers will also increase the likelihood of people commenting to your blog post. Several options are made available for making your blog comments. Promote the use of avatars to make remarks more personalized. You can also provide user name or alias to encourage sense of community. Another tip is to allow anonymous commenting which doesn’t require any membership or standards to follow before leaving a comment. Nevertheless, spammers could also raid on your thread, and no one wants that.

A blog entry was even used to catch a killer in May of 2005, when a person was blogging and mentioned in his blog that his sister’s boyfriend was at the house – right before he and his sister were murdered! Blogs have been used to figure out what caused people to commit suicide, and even to figure out why some people have committed crimes.

Yet when done correctly blogging is a very powerful tool in the internet marketers’ toolbox which also prevents Google Slap and helps with SEO… and as it helps getting you to #1 in Google, or at least high in the rankings, then your reliance on PPC “as a need” is reduced which reduces your financial risk. Seems Share your work are an option well worth doing to me!

Blogs are simply the cheaper way to get ahead not only on search engines but everywhere else on the internet as well. With it, you’ll get the traffic you need at half the cost. What’s more, you don’t have to rely on anybody to get your site going. You can set it up yourself, update it with entries, and maintain it to ensure its integrity. No need to pay for a professional. And the only thing you really need to brush up your writing skills.

Buying backlinks, unless it is a service that hand submits those comments and as I described, is a big waste of your hard-earned money. Whether you pay someone to use it or you use it yourself, automated blogging software is another waste of time and money. Also, leaving the wrong type of comments on the wrong type of blogs will do you more harm than good.
