    I think the main factors are good research, patience, and realistic expectations.
    For example someone starts a blog about labrador retrievers, does research on keywords, picks the main keyword for title, fixes structure of the blog, starts posting with using secondary keywords maybe three times per week. First month is spent on just content no expectations on traffic, second month posting plus link building with forum postings, article postings, guest blogging, after four months add adsense. you might see traffic coming in at this point, google may have indexed most of your posts, after six months you continue posting, link building, adsense and now add affiliate products.

    So depending on how competitive your keywords are and how consistent and how much effort you dedicate to your blog, you will see profits coming in maybe on your second year. I thin the problem that most run into is false expectations of making money quick.

    On my case I will retire from the military in seven years so my goal is seven years to have exposure on the web.

    Good luck

    It's simple really. Pick a topic you are passionate about. Create unique and compelling content.

    People devote years of their lives to finding a way around these simple rules. The tragedy is that if they devaoted the same energy into finding their passion, they could easily be making money.

    In blogging, it can help improve your writing skills as well as your creativity. But you have to choose a niche that you are very much passionate. It's necessary that you have a strong interest on the topic you want to blog to make your blog excellent.

    Yeah, Blogging can be a fantastic way for earning but getting money you will have to do work on its content, traffic, visitor or fans and rank as well then it will be source of income for you. Once blog got good ranking then you can put link another site as a back link and keep advertisement for branding and promotion.

    Hey, there are lots of ways to earn money from your blog but to start you need to build traffic and repeat visitors. Then you can sell ad space, sell links, join pay per post sites, make an opt in to build a list and of course affiliate products or all. But first build traffic

    I started to keep myself busy by writing, and to document different things I do. However, I do not make money.
