One of the easiest, most popular and profitable ways to generate an additional income stream from your blog is to do some paid posting through paid blogging networks. These networks act as a middleman by connecting paying advertisers with bloggers-for-hire. Generally speaking, bloggers are basically paid to write and post their opinions and reviews of advertiser websites, products and services. Rules, guidelines and requirements vary from one blogging network to the other. Being professional and consistent is key to building a good reputation for yourself. Making money through paid blogging and posting can earn you $100 to $500 or more per month with each blog.
