How To Make Money Blogging

by TheMadHat on October 18, 2007

Step 1: Make a shit load of money on some other online venture.

Step 2: Prove it by taking a picture of your porsche/aquarium/check/hot girls.

Step 3: Talk about how you made the money, but only the ways that don’t work anymore.

Step 4: Sell ads and promote shitty affiliate programs.

Step 5: Repeat.

Luxury Auto and 8000 Gallon Aquarium

Big Money and Hot Chicks


Bring on the cash!

I’ve read on a few automotive blogs that I won’t reference because I’m about to lie, that you can catch a mean case of Porsche-foot if you buy one of those things.

Apparently, there’s no cure.

Also beware of Aston-arch and Ferrari-toe. They’ll cripple ya!

TheMadHat November 23, 2007 at 5:07 pm

:) I’ll take any of those ailments if you please.

If you want to earn money by advertising on your website and you have a UK bank account then you should take alook at You enter the details of your website and any pages you wish to have advertisements on. They then match you with advertisers and pay you £3 per advert that you display on your website for a month. You can enter up to 5 websites and 5 pages on each site so potentially you could make £75 a month for doing vitually nothing and you could earn even more through their affiliate scheme with an extra £5 per referral.

Lol, it certainly seems that you have this internet biz thing sussed out.

Collin LaHay January 31, 2008 at 10:10 pm

Hahah, this is good. You only forgot to add that you should bundle a ton of free information and sell it as an ebook on Digitalpoint.

All the money making tactics described in four simple sentance. Great!!!!

Cheapster February 11, 2008 at 2:00 am

Easy techniques to read but they are not as easy as they seem to implement ;)

Ada May 20, 2008 at 8:45 pm

I can’t realize why I didn’t do like this from the start! Is really, really easy! And I bet there are many other ways to make money with internet.The truth is that we don’t explore internet as we should… I studied marketing at Nouveau Rich University, and there were no classes about internet marketing, or stuff like that, and there should be at least one. Lately internet became a great business.

Nice summation. Let me throw in some details. First, there’s no reason to bother with step one, you can just photoshop a check. Below are more helpful tips:

1.) Pay Uniqueblogdesigns to create your blog, so it looks as snazzy and professional as possible.
2.) Fake your initial feedburner subscriber count
3.) Fill your blog with recycled wickedfire posts (only the tactics that have been over-saturated to the 200th power, you wouldn’t want to accidentally give away something useful
4.) Ask John Chow to partner with you in a contest to drum up an initial user base for your blog. If he refuses, just pay him until he caves in.
5.) Create an inspirational background story about your rise to super-duper affiliate stardom. Talk about how you were a big fat slob who was laid off from your job and then took it upon yourself to learn affiliate marketing from scratch while simultaneously losing 150 pounds by doing 100 cartwheels a day.
6.) Manufacture a contest that forces people to spread your blog in order to win. Say the prize is an ipod and $1,000 cash. Make the winner of the contest a fictitious person named Rosco.
7.) After 2 months of growing your readerbase, offer a private consulting session for $5,000. As soon as people begin to complain that the consulting session is useless, cut it off, citing time considerations.

I’ve probably left some things out, but that’s the general gist. Can’t believe I spent this much time writing this. It’s actually somewhat disturbing. But that’s generally the sordid tale of how to make a MMO blog.

Very nice! As I always say, it would be very funny if it wasn’t so sad… Get rich quickly – only already rich people can do that, which means getting even richer, but they’re already rich, so why do they need to get rich if they already are?
Only hard work and dedication makes ordinary people rich, in the purse and in the heart.

Jay February 28, 2009 at 11:34 pm

Hahaha! George has it right, get-rich-quick stuff only works for people who already are. Like they say, you have to have money to make money.

Robert May 5, 2009 at 1:39 pm

2.Wow great ideas. I earned millions of dollars using your ideas

Kevin Quinlan May 17, 2009 at 11:48 am

Perfect! Man this really does sum of many of the blogs in the top of the money making list. If only they would let us in on what they are doing now, what worked for them in the past…
