So you launched your blog, and are posting every day with interesting content, but want more out of it? Consider bringing in revenue by introducing these three methods: sponsorship, advertising, and affiliations.

A great way to add interest for your readers and money in your pocket, is to include content-specific advertising. There are many programs now that allow you to add this type of advertising right in your blog posts.
