Can you really make money blogging? This is the question everyone loves to ask me when I tell them I am a full-time blogger. When I started my first blog a couple of years ago, I would ask myself the same question.
Because it seemed as if I would not make any money blogging. In fact, I’m going to go over the steps to make money online.
How long does it take to make money from blogging? That depends on you, there are many ways to monetize your blog.
. Most beginner bloggers apply for advertising programs such as Google AdSense.
One reason being is Google Adsense does not have traffic requirements like other big-name ad companies such as Mediavine or Monumetric.
Medavine is an ad company that pays bloggers to advertise on their site. However, they require you have 25,000 sessions per month.
I know that number can sound astronomical to new bloggers who are struggling to bring in a few hundred page views per month.

However, you don’t have to settle, other options can help you to make money blogging.
Don’t worry if you already have signed up for Google AdSense you can use these networks in conjunction with AdSense!
