    Yes, it is possible, as you are allowed to place Adsense ads and/or affiliate links on blogspot blogs. There are many people making money with free blogspot.com blogs.

    You want an honest opinion? No. Everyone talks a good game, and they all think they will be the exception to the rule, but the real facts are that over 95% of all "bloggers" don't make a dime. Of those that do, they are either employed and blog for a company, or use the blog as a tool to promote a more lucrative business.
    There are very few people that just blog and make a lot of money. VERY few.

    Of course it also depends on what you consider "money".
    If you are happy with enough to pay for hosting and a couple of sodas, then sure, you can do that all day long.
    If you mean enough to make a living. Yes it is possible, but you aren't going to do it by plopping up a free blogger blog, throwing up some ads and rehashing the same old articles as 1 million other bloggers just like you/

    You need to be original, Professional and you need to invest in the design, marketing and development of your product and it's content. You need to run it like a business if you want to make business money. Or come up with some kind of scam.

    If all you do is just enough to get by with a bunch of free stuff just so say that you have a blog, then that's all the money you will make.

    No one is sitting around waiting for your blog to go online and there isn't going to be some miracle that makes your crappy blogger blog, more popular than any other crappy blogger blog.

    If you are going to do it, then do it. If you are just going to half ass it on free stuff because "you want to see if it makes any money first before you invest any of your own money in it", then you will never make a dime.

    That's the truth about ANY business and in life. You get what you put into it.

    If you are serious about it. Doing the minimum and not spending a dime on anything is not a good way to start. Free blogs are the minimum effort.

    It's basically saying, "I want to start a business. What is the very least that I can do without putting any effort into it and still make some money?"

    After the latest panda update, many free blogging networks had a massive drop of traffic so think where you submit your content. Squidoo.com is not designed for blogging but it's free and still ranks well (so you'll get traffic).

    My thinking is you put sooo much effort into a blog. You might as well spend a little money and own it. You can't sell a free blog and you don't have full control over it.

    If you want to make money try to make original posts, not things that everyone's saying, not about movies or tv series, not tips about business, not news. I used to live in a small town, I had a personal blog where I posted some negative opinions about trash in the streets and stuff like that... people raged and started to comment a lot, I got a lot of traffic and I'm now well ranked in Google and earning some good dollars.

    You'll really make good money from your free blog if:

    1. Your blog is older than 6 months.
    2. Your blog must have a lot of original content.
    3. Your blog must have more than 400 to 500 unique visitors a day.
    4. Your blog must be stylish and must have good layout.

    You'll really make 200 t0 250 dollars a month if your blog is just like what I said.
