How do bloggers make money?

I have heard and read that blogging is a sufficient way to make money if you are a good enough writer to be a successful blogger. I was just wondering how they make money from blogging?

I am guessing advertising is one way but that can only pay so much.

Thanks in advance for your responses

    Advertising and affiliate programs. Affiliate programs are a type of advertising, but you choose the companies and products that you will feature with links. When someone clicks on your link and makes a purchase, you earn a commission. With affiliate programs you need to make sure that the products you feature on your blog are related to your topic so they don't come off as spammy. For example, if your blog features a travel destination, you can use links to companies that offer tours, travel guide books to that area, etc. Here is an example: http://pacific-nw-travels-and-tails.blogspot.com/

    There are numerous affiliate programs that you can sign up for and use on your blog. Here are some examples:

    Linkshare: http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/stat?id=u5gSYs...

    Share-a-sale: http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=69&u=360104&m=47...

    All Posters: http://affiliates.allposters.com/link/redirect.asp...

    Zazzle: http://www.zazzle.com/sell/affiliates/referrals?rf...

    It does take time to build traffic to your blog and it is important that you give people a good reason to visit and read it. Lots of photos and good, unique and informative content are important.

    Usually through advertising such as Google adsense, selling affiliate products or ebooks, building a list. There are many ways, but the most important thing is to create a blog that gets many visitors.

    Advertising.

    Any bloggers making money now probably started 10-15 years ago.

    So, if you start today, you might actually make a living by 2025 or so.

    Yeah, it's advertising. The more visitors you get, the more money you get and the more people will pay to put ads on your site.
