Blogging as a Home Business

I'm new to this whole blogging for profit thing and I've found that there are quite a few sites out there willing to pay for your opinions and/or space on your blog. Add all the affiliate programs you could get into and what you get is a lot of time spent online putting it together before you see anything resembling a return. That's where I'm at right now. Not to mention, I've had to start new blogs because the one I have on myspace either isn't good enough to qualify, or myspace itself won't let my blogs get posted.

It's enough of a drain on my time trying to put together a website for my gift shop while also keeping the house presentable, taking care of my young sons, managing 2 businesses and going to school. How much time exactly does it take to sign up for something? I'm finding that getting the sign-up set up is taking longer than the actual work involved in the blogging business.

Has anyone else had this problem and if so, can you suggest a way to make the transition smoother? I'm more than willing to put the work in so long as i'm not on for hours a day just trying to get qualified for an opportunity that works, or find a site that'll give me quick verification so I can get started. I'd rather put in my time actually writing something!


  1. Keep writing good quality posts. If you have good stuff on myspace, transfer it here. will take quality blogs after 30 days for paid blogging, most the others start at 90 days. If you already have 2 home businesses...good for you. Depending on how much you're looking to make with blogging, you can contact me for more info, but I've only been at it for 6 months. Good luck.

  2. I've signed on for payperpost, but a lot of advertisers frown on myspace I'm waiting for this one to be old enough and am in the process of making a couple more, just in case, lol. Transfering some posts is a great idea, thanks!

    My businesses (Avon and a gift/home shop) are still in the 'not enough to count as income' stage, lol...I'm hoping to make enough to help pay the bills (or pay them completely myself, if I can) by blogging. I've been published and writing for years, so I think I'd do well with it. You said you may have more info? I'd love it if you could help point me in a better direction. Thanks again!
