If you've read my blog for any length of time, you know that I've tried a few different ideas to make money blogging. There were the greeting cards, which I actually spent money on to buy sponsored clicks, but made me absolutely nothing. Then I tried a new blog "Book Reviews by Me" and inserted Amazon links to try and make money, but I didn't keep up with it, and I doubted anyone would buy the books I recommended anyway. I've spent countless hours scouring the Internet for money making ideas.
I have finally found one that actually works. Pay Per Post offers advertisers the chance to post opportunities for bloggers to write about on their blogs. These "opps" range from 50 to 300 words and can pay anywhere from $5.00 to $1,000.00. That's right. One thousand dollars. To take advantage of an opp that big, a blogger would need to be pretty popular and have a high page rank (For example, mine is 3/10), but the chance is there.
To keep my readers (Hi mom!) happy, I try and only take opportunities that I can relate to and offer personal stories on. I don't want to look like a total advertisement blog, but I have to admit, I have been paid about $100 so far and I have another $75 or so coming to me. It's nice to look in my paypal account and see a little extra spending money there for the frivolous things in life. Also, Pay Per Post requires bloggers to disclose that the entries are sponsored, so you're not lying to your readers.
