Making money with a blog is not a simple task considering especially the large number of blogs that exist today; However, it is not something that any of us can not achieve if in addition to enough work and dedication we put into practice some advice.
Choose a theme that you like, that you master and that is “profitable”
When choosing the theme of your blog (the subject on which you are going to write) make sure you choose one that you like, otherwise you will not be able to keep publishing content on a regular basis that is what every blog needs to get a Good visitor traffic and therefore generate revenue.
Be sure to choose a theme that you master because otherwise you will not be able to keep publishing good quality content that is also what every blog needs to get a good visitor traffic and generate income; although this could obviate if you really like the subject you are going to write about and are willing to learn about it on the way.
And make sure you choose a “profitable” theme; that is to say, a theme that allows you to generate good income taking into account the method that you will use to earn money, since otherwise, even if your blog gets to have a good visitor traffic it may not have good income; For example, if you are going to use AdSense as a method to earn money, choose a theme where there are several advertisers, and if you are going to promote affiliate products, choose a theme related to products with good demand.
To create a blog, it is common to use some of the platforms for blogs that exist on the Internet, which allow us to create and manage one in a simple way without needing to have more knowledge in web design.
Many people who start a blog decide to use Blogger or WordPress.com as a platform because they do not require you to register a domain and acquire a hosting service; But the problem with these platforms is that your domain must include the name of the platform, which makes the blog look unprofessional, in addition to presenting certain limitations when it comes to earning money such as just allowing you to place ads in certain places.
So it is recommended that you use as a platform to create and manage your WordPress blog , which requires that you register a domain and acquire a hosting service; but it has the advantage of allowing you to choose the domain you want and does not put limitations on you when it comes to making money.
Create an attractive blog
An important requirement to make money with a blog is to create an attractive blog.
An attractive blog could mean, among other things:
A blog with an attractive and professional design.
a blog with an attractive logo (if you do not have knowledge in graphic design to create your logo, you could hire a freelance designer for this task, which you could find on freelancers sites such as Freelancer and Freelance Work ).
A blog with attractive colors.
A blog with easy navigation.
The more attractive your blog is, the more likely it is that users will read and recommend it and, above all, that they trust you and so, for example, that they buy the products that you promote or sell.
Post good quality content
When it comes to getting visitors and generating income, as much or more important than creating an attractive blog is to publish good quality content.

The higher the quality of your blog content, the more likely it is for users to read and recommend it and, above all, for search engines such as Google to position it in the top positions of their search results (and so users find when they perform searches related to their theme), since the quality of the content of a website is one of the main factors that search engines take into account when positioning one in their search results.
Publish content regularly
