    Affiliate marketing is the best and lucrative ways to make money online and you can do it through blogging as well. You may also try Google adsense and native advertising networks.

    Okay, some of the advice here is... rather crap.
    To have a successfull, money making blog, you'll need readers. Readers might drop by your blog by chance, but unless your blog actually provides some content of value, and updates regularly, there's no reason for them to come back. Hence, build your audience first. Create content that people want to read - it doesn't have to be tech, or glam, or anything remotely thematic, but if you're gonna sell yourself (which you're mostly doing by creating a blog), you'll need to be a good writer. You need a bit of wit, a bit of bitchyness, and a lot of creativity.
    When all that is in place, you can start really monetizing. Putting in afiliate marketing links might get you some minor cash, but it doesn't give big returns. What gives big returns is SELLING ad-space. And to do that, you need to be an established blog already.
    Scams likes e-books and such might get you some cash, but unless that ebook is REALLY worth the money, and word of mouth keep bringing in customers, you're better off without. If you put up a 30-page leaflet telling people how to make their first million, you'll be out of customers before the first one finished reading the garbage you put out.
    Making money of blogs isn't hard, although you might fare better if you have a smaller market with known quantities, instead of battling against the whole English-speaking market, for instance. Write locally (your own country), and make sure you target an audience that actually want to spend money. The most successfull bloggers in my country (Norway) are late-teen/early 20-something girls blogging about themselves, glamour, clothes, makeup, and so forth and so on. The most successfull of these girls have an income, mostly from their blogs in the hundreds of thousands each year.

    But make no mistake. For those who manages something that popular, this is not a post and forget - it's their job. It's what they do for at least 4-6 hours every day. Posting, taking photos, getting taken photos of, making commercials, attending events, answering fan-mail, answering comments, negotiating deals and so forth and so on. It's hard work.

    You can try out sponsored posts. But for that your blog needs to be already established with a wide readership.

    LOL does that really work? That's so awesome :D. Selling soap to teens hahaha. Wish I could like your post omg.

    Teens use a lot stuff everyday. Makeup, perfume... uhm. Phone covers. The disposable stuff is what makes money right?

    could totally blog about your daily makeup life, have a subscription for makeup link, then win :D

    Check out cratejoy.com. They literally have hundreds of different types of box companies. I knew someone who had a monthly subscription to cheese... like actual cheese. lol I can only imagine what people pay for stupid crap like that. It's easy to think of a sub box company idea, but thinking of one that isn't taken is another story.
