    Can You Make Money with a Free Blog?

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    You’ve got a free blog! But does it do you any good financially? Web logs made an appearance on the Internet and suddenly became the biggest thing in the online world since wireless. From celebrities to stay-at-home moms, everyone seems to have a blog these days. When there’s such a large market, when there’s so much competition, when there’s so many ways for absolutely anyone to create one of their own…can you make money with a free blog at all?

    The Drawbacks of the Free Blog

    What are some of the most popular sites on the Internet? The ones with free blogs to offer, and there’s a good reason for that: people like blogs.

But this doesn’t mean you can’t earn your own money through your free blog.

    The domain name of your blog will reflect the parent site. This means that if you sign up for a free blog with a site like Blogger (, pictured), for example, you’ll have very little control over the Web address that will serve as your calling card. When you use an existing Web site to create your blog, it’s likely that your Web address will contain some piece of that company’s name. In this example, your blog might be located at http.//your
