How can I make money blogging?

A blogger that has worked hard to bring in readers and networked with the blogger community to raise their page rank level may have fun blogging about their family, products, or whatever may cross their mind. But maybe they are ready to expand their horizons and find a new use for their blog. Or, maybe they might want to find a way to supplement or even replace their present income. What opportunities are out there for bloggers who want to earn an income from their blog?
In the article, Make Money Blogging for Profit , one way is to do paid posts. What is a paid post? Basically, it's what it states; you post about a product or company and you get paid for it. Some bloggers don't agree with this type of writing, but some see it as an opportunity to get paid for your opinion. Most companies have a list of opportunities for you to choose from, so you aren't forced to write about something that you don't agree with. Others send you offers and you can decide if you choose to write about it or not.

Payment is usually once a month, but some pay on the spot or weekly. Paypal is also the usual way most send you your money and that way you don't have to wait forever for a check.

Connecting with Facebook and MySpace might lead to paid posts also. In the article How to create a MySpace profile to build your Social networking experience you can learn how to set up a page to link your blog to it to bring in more traffic without the expense.
