Blogging, for many, is done for fun when first begun. This is what I thought and my main reason when I began.
I was a teacher before I had my kids and during my second pregnancy lost my position due to the economy and budget cuts.
Overnight, I became a stay at home mom. We went from two incomes to one, but it seemed ok and doable at first.
As much as I loved being at home with my girls, I did get to a point where I needed something for me and even a place to share all our daily exploits. I also wanted to know some of what I was experiencing as a mom to two little girls was normal and that I wasn’t alone.
See being alone with two babies under two can be quite overwhelming and as crazy as times can get, still definitely kind of lonely and short of adult stimulation to say the least.
So, I started my blog and did indeed begin sharing my life with the whole free world on the internet. I loved it from first bite to be quite honest.
But then I started to catch the blogging and making money bug, which I remember the first time that I found out that not only can you write from home, share and get to know others this way, but you can also make a living off doing this, as well.
I saw an infographic that was shared about bloggers and how much money they made over the course of the last year.

I truly had no idea that this was even possible until I saw that.
I decided to immerse myself and learn all I could after seeing that.
Recently I was asked to share a few tips from Tina from Amanda’s Books and More on indeed making money from blogging.
One of the biggest and best things I did to monetize my blog was to set up my SIDEBAR properly and including ads from both other bloggers and affiliate companies.
So the question is how do you set up your sidebar to indeed make you money?
Other then making sure to have the essentials included, such as social media buttons, so you could be found online and even e-mailed by potential clients, bloggers and companies, as well as having a blogger grab me button and even an about me graphic image with text to explain who you are, you will need to make sure to make money to have some other key elements.Maximize Your Blog Revenue by Utilizing Your Blog Sidebar
