    Tamland,

    Unless you are selling a product or service, the only way you are going to make money from blogging is by selling ad space. Similar to that is affiliate advertising which you could also try however it is pretty much the same as AdSense in that you are offering something your visitors might like and enticing them to click on it.
    If its just AdSense you don't want to use, you could always take a stab at selling ad space on your own and marketing to potential advertisers.

    Best,

    Shawn

    We all heard this million times "content is king". Create pillar contents on your blog that should attracts most of the readers. And also make articles that would be return the readers again and again...This could be drive traffic for your blog...

    adsense pays peanuts now as compared to efforts.

    you better try something out of the box.

    Think , you got a 3 pound brain, like many here.

    How to Make a Successful Blog
    1. Choose an industry with at least 500 companies that range from $5mm to $800mm in sales
    2. Choose trending topics that are important and relevant to those companies (but not about the products they sell)
    3. Invite people from those companies to contribute articles and be recognized as industry experts
    4. Make it easy for those industry experts to work on concepts and exchange ideas with each other
    5. Share this out through social media
    6. Run your PR through the roof
    7. Charge the late comers $1500 apiece to "guest blog" once you have the site going
    8. Slide in some advertising over time but don't ruin the site
    8. Sell this plan on the forum that dare not speak its name

    Offer some space for advertisements or guest posting but you have to have a blog with a high PR so that many will ask for guest posts in your blog. They pay you if you place a link in the article that will redirect the readers to their blog or website.
