Pat Flynn (Owner of smartpassiveincome.com), for instance, has been making over 100,000 dollars per month after his sixth year of full-time blogging.

My jaw hit the floor too).
Even better, I was able to dig a little deeper so I can find out how these “proficient” bloggers are making so much money from blogging and I’ll discuss the main points I have learnt with all my readers on this blog post.

Without further ado, let us jump into the main section of the post and discuss four ways you can get paid as a blogger in 2018.
1. Search for paid blogging gigs
The best (and probably easiest) way to start getting remunerated to blog right away is to find yourself a blogging gig. Get a job where you’ll get paid per blog post or a job that pays ad revenue shares on a prominent, high traffic website.
Although kindly note that blogging for add revenue shares on a practically unknown blog site ought to be avoided because chances are, the reimbursement won’t be worth your precious effort.
2. Display Google Ads on your blogs or blog site
Mostly, your blog site will be more successful if you choose a specific niche (or numerous niches, in case you contemplate on starting more than one blog site), advertise your blog site, and frequently post to create a large target audience.
Whether you just launched a new blog site or already have an existing one, you can get set up quickly with pay per click ad services such as Google AdSense and start selling ad space straight away.
This sort of service pays you every time someone taps on an ad on your blog site. Payments per click might be only pennies, or as much as one dollar or two, contingent upon the Advertisement and its placement.
3. You can also sell goods on your blog sites via affiliate ads
Firms such as Amazon and eBay concocted affiliate advertisements, which basically permits you to mention another firm’s goods on your website and earn a small commission for every sale that goes through your site.
Advertising goods on your website via affiliate programs has several paybacks. One, you do not have to stress yourself out trying to sell your own products. You also do not have to set prices, ship items to your clients, or store inventories.
You can just receive a commission from every item sold through the referral links posted on your blog posts. Furthermore, you can offer a vast array of goods tailored to your website’s specific niche, and you can also achieve a better diversity if you found affiliate relationships with two or more firms.
4. Sell your own commodities on your blog site

Nowadays, you can use blog posts to sell almost everything, from online yard sales or garage sales to eBooks. Make use of your blog site and answer questions from your clients, describe your products, and push sales.
