A couple of years back, I set out on a quest. A quest to make money blogging and make hundreds of thousands of dollars every single month; enough to retire from my job and live the life of my dreams. But alas, that didn’t happen after my first blog post.
C’mon man! What? People didn’t just rush to my blog after the first post. They didn’t even come and give me their money after my 9th, 10th, 11th, and so on…
What the heck?
Did I have my hopes too high? You bet I did. No one is going to be the next Tymothy Sykes or Cute Girls Hairstyles guru overnight.
This career field is relatively new with the advent of the Internet (and No, I will not give Al Gore props on his claimed invention). Thousands of people have jumped on the so called band wagon. According to DazInfo.com, a technology blog, there were over 111 million bloggers online by the end of 2011 (Old data, for sure, but I didn’t want to waste time from writing this article to do more research, so I will stick with the outdated data).
You see my point here. I’m not even going to try and speculate how many bloggers are out there in 2013. You get it – too many to count. Nonetheless, there are thousands of bloggers that are making a nice living online.
So what do these bloggers do to make money? The answers are pretty simple. So simple, in fact, that you’ll say to yourself, “Darn-it, self, why didn’t I think of that?”
Admit it, we all do this when an invention is put out into the market place that we thought of years ago, or one that is so effortless we should have thought of it, like the Tricycle Lawnmower (that would be the best gift ever).
But I digress, I better get back to my countdown of the Top 10 Ways to Make Money Blogging, before my mind-numbing introduction puts you to sleep.

The Number 10 Way to Make Money Blogging- Dress Like Your Favorite Superhero and Act Like a Moron in Front of the Camera
There are a lot of creative individuals on the web that are dressing up like their favorite super hero and then throwing away any self-dignity they act to act silly in front of the camera.
Some of these individuals have over 1,000,000 views on YouTube, enough said.
If your not comfortable running around your house in your PJ’s and totally acting like and overgrown ADHD child who had 100 Pixie Stix’s for lunch, then I don’t suggest you use this strategy.
Don’t get me wrong, I think some of these videos are hilarious. And they are probably making a nice passive income each month from YouTube. It’s just not my style. But if it’s yours, go for it.
