Regular readers will know, when it comes to the need for a business to have a regularly updated blog, I am something of a zealot and spend much of my time promoting the cause.
I have often written about the advantages of a business blogs but, what about a blog designed and set up specifically to earn you cash?

I’m sure you’ve seen adverts for ebooks and video courses that promise to teach you just how to do that.
Forget it! Not possible! The common thread amongst all successful blogs is they were built through hard work and have large volumes of regularly-updated content. Any blog that is a year or two old and that has daily posts will invariably be successful…in terms of readers but not necessarily earnings.
