    I wanted to try to make money from a blog and use that money to pay to start up a few other site (Domain/Hosting), but is there much money to be made with free blogs? If so how would you go about doing it?

    Plenty of people make money off free blogs with working methods. The key is just taking action and experimenting with methods. Start with a blogger blog, find a method, and start rolling.

    This could start a long discussion, but my quick answer..

    For a free blog that you are wanting to monetize, use Blogger. Trust me, I have a reason for recommending Blogger to free bloggers and it is mainly SEO related, however I don't feel like getting in depth with it at the moment. Just trust me.

    For paid hosting, use Wordpress.

    There is, but you have to demonstrate your expertise in some area and accumulate a substantial crowd who follow you. Otherwise you'd be stuck with adsense.

    I red once about blogging income. At some blog :) that guy has nick Viper....something..i don't remember now.
    But he said that you must be very active blogger, so write a lot of articles, it takes a long time to make your audience and monetize the site.

    If you pick the right niche, you can rank fast even with free blog

    Generally I've found that high usage products will make a lot of money over time ...

    If you don't want to pay for hosting, and/or domain, go with blogger. Otherwise, go with wordpress.

    Of course you can make money with free blogs. The downside is that it is not your own property. so if you start to make money, make sure to move on to a paid solution ASAP.

    There is always money to be made. The question is are you willing to do what it takes to make it. If you want an autoblog, then you need to have a good niche and all that jazz. If you want a regular blog, then you need to have something that people are willing to come to your site to see.

    You have to figure out what works for you. What are you good at?

    Many people make money from the blog so start working on it and earn money.

    Hi, If you are using a free blog site, there is no payment to give. All you need is the effort to make a unique blog posts and generate traffic. The very hard thing about blogging is on how you can attract people to follow you and re-blog your posts. You can earn through re-blogging. What free blog sites will you use? If you have to choose one I prefer you must go to a site which has a high population of bloggers and somewhat easy for you to use.
