Paying for the Cat Food

I know that there are a number of folks out there who blog about their cat who need a little extra income. I see a lot of cafepress stores. Did you know you could become a cafepress affiiate? For instance, if you love what the Cat Blogosphere has done, if they are open to affiliates, you can link to their store and if you have a cafepress affiliate number, you can get a few cents for every sale they make if the people click off from your blog.

Another you think you can do is offer adspace on your blog. I believe that google allows google adsense on blogger blogs. It's easy to sign up for and you can display them on your blog. Another company that sells adspace is called adbrite. They set you up with advertisers who pay a certain amount a month to advertise on your site. How much they will pay depends upon the amount of traffic you get that is targeted to the audience that your advertiser wants to target.

Another easy affiliate to work with is They have amazon shops, like I have at Chey's Place. They also have links that look at what you are writing about and then automatically generate a product that might fit in with your content. There are lots of places that offer affiliate networks and whether you are eligible with a blogspot blog depends upon each companies policies. Many of them do require you to have your own domain name.

This is just a very brief overview of some ways to make a little extra from your blog. There are many different blogs out there that are just devoted to different ways to make money from your blog, so this is far from inclusive. On that I recently heard about was Mike's Money Making Mission. Mike isn't an internet marketer who invested anything in making money from his online activities, so basically all he has done is spent some time. It has some great ideas and for those who have more time than money, it might be an interesting read.

Chey, my dad uses Zazzle, which seems a lot like Cafe Press, but he's made more $ from Zazzle than Amazon. Acorse, since his blog isn't bout cats, he doesn't haf so many bisitors to make the links reely pay.
