Writing this blog has been incredibly cathartic. I’d be full of shit, however, if I said that was the only reason I started this blog.
One of the main reasons I started this blog was to create non-location based passive income for myself. (Which will eventually support my off-grid self-sustaining homestead life.)
After only three weeks, it’s already working!
I got set up with Bluehost. With this sweet deal, I got:
- A Free Domain
- 1-Click Install
- 24/7 Support
- 30-day money-back guarantee
The setup with the 1-click WordPress install was super easy!
Once the blog was ready, it was time to monetize.
I got set up with an Amazon affiliate account.
Getting approved and set up with an Amazon affiliate account was basically instant.
Everyone shops on (and most importantly – trusts) Amazon.
Their affiliate program is mind-blowingly awesome. You can earn a commission on almost anything someone buys from Amazon within 24-hours of clicking on your affiliate link – even if it isn’t the product you linked!
This has the potential to be a massive money-maker given the way people shop on Amazon!
I applied for a Google AdSense account.
Google took about three weeks for me to get approved but this is an awesome one for passive income.
You earn money on ad views even if no one even clicks on the ads (though you earn even more if they do).
The ads are targeted to the visitor so they are more likely to be clicked on and make you more money.
There are many other options for monetizing blogs, but this is what I’m sticking with for now. Now all I really need to do is continue to write blog posts that will live on the internet forever and generate income from affiliate links and ad revenue. Easy!
I can’t believe how easily and quickly this has become profitable. Why didn’t I do this years ago?!
