This is a very hot topic on the internet and I would also like to air my views on this topic also.
If your main aim is to earn fast money on the internet, I would definitely advise you to go to look for some products online and sell, create a squeeze page, make it look great, and then pray to earn money from it. Hot topics will always be sex, relationship, money etc, related.
Starting a blog is different from internet marketing, A blog provide resources, Guides, and personal views on a certain niche. Internet marketing is selling products online, A blogger will also be an internet marketer if he start his own products and sell it on the internet. There is just a fine line of difference between them, but in fact, these are 2 very different activities on the internet to me.
If you are starting a blog just to earn money, then most likely you would fail, you might have a better chance if you created a few different squeeze page for a few different hot topics online. Blogging is very much different, it often involve your personal view in the niche that you are blogging in. You might be really an expert in a particular niche, but you still can provide information, provide resources and share information among readers who are interested in your niche.
If you start a blog based on your interest or expertise, then it will grow, and ultimately it would definitely make you money. How much, I won’t be able to tell you. It very much depends on your area of niche and the type of advertiser there.
I can still remember why my own company can survive the ups and downs of the past 12 years. One of the main thing that gets me going is still my interest in my work. I love computers, Networking and the Internet. Initially when the company was not making money, I’m disappointed. But I never gave up because of my interest in the work that I provide, it keeps me going and going. If I do not have any interest in my work back then, I don’t think I will be able to keep my company going until now.
Making money is important, but won’t it be ideal if your hobby and interest makes you money. That’s right, Blog on your interest and it will keep the flame inside you burning for years. If you don’t have any interest in the blog you provide, You will not last long, this is because if you don’t see any ROI (return on investment) soon, you will give up, but if it happens to be your interest, you most likely will keep it going and post updates as there are new news in your area of niche.
