Guest blogging is one of the best way to earn money from blogging. You can earn monthly 5 digit from guest blogging. There are some websites, who are paying money for writing on their sites. Medium is one of the big names who are paying a good amount of money to the bloggers. Medium pays on the basis of the reading time and number of readers. In this way you can earn money from an article for the lifetime. On the other hand “Before it is news” also paying to the bloggers. They pay to the bloggers for one time for an article. Both the paying techniques are good for the new bloggers.
Ghost writing gives a good earning opportunity to the bloggers. It means, you will write for someone. The content will be published with his name. The traffic or visitors will know that he is the original content writer. You will just get paid from him. You will get this type of job work at the freelance marketplaces and can earn some money. When you become an expert blogger, then you can get the ghost writing job work outside from the marketplace and their rate is also much higher than the marketplace.

You will insert a link of the company you are working for into your article. You will be get paid for inserting this link. In this way you can work as a professional outreach campaigner.
Product or Service Review
Every commercial organizations need review of their products and services. You can write review articles for the companies and publish it to the blogs, where you are writing. Here you will get two way earning. One is for the review article from the company and another is for publishing the articles to the blogs.
Affiliate commission is the best earning opportunity for a blogger. It is a passive income opportunity for you. After getting some experience you can should do affiliate marketing. It can’t be a problem if you don’t have your own website for doing affiliate marketing. You can insert your affiliate link into your guest blogging articles.
But, yes, if you have your own website, it is better for doing affiliate marketing. You can earn from AdSense also when you have your own website.
Affiliate commission and AdSense commission, both are passive income.
How I Turned My Career into Blogging
When I have started blogging that was my passion and hobby. I never think I will earn from it. I felt honored when people read my blogs or articles. This was my pleasure.
I have read many blogs where I found that people are earning from blogging in many ways. As I have another job and I am doing blogging only for my pleasure, I didn’t feel interest to earn money from it. After few months of blogging experience, my first client Mr. Abir ping me for building links for him. I published his content on three different blogs and he paid me some money. Gradually many SEO professionals are contacting me for outreach job work. I accepted all of their work and earned some money. After few days I joined Fiverr marketplace. Though my primary income is coming from ghost writing and outreach work. In this way my blogging career was started.
Now I am doing outreach and ghost writing as a professional blogger and my earning is satisfactory to me.
You can also turn your blogging hobby into a successful career. It is not so difficult. Just you need passion and writing skills. If you have these skills, you will be also a successful blogger and can earn handsome amount of money.
