Getting Paid To Blog As An Online Business

Make Money Blogging?

Perhaps – like me – you were seduced by the dream of getting paid to blog?

I do enjoy writing and always have done…. when I was a little girl I won an essay prize from Cadbury’s, and the prize was a stack of chocolate bars so tall my Dad had to carry them for me. My friends will know that’s just my type of prize!

cakes-mfBut of course as we take on more responsibilities and bills, a stack of chocolate bars won’t quite do the trick!

  • My off-line business pays the bills for me.
  • Blogging satisfies the writing bug that never quite left me.
  • But wouldn’t actually getting paid to blog really be the icing on the cake?

The Paid Blogging Dream

You’ve seen the adverts – they’re such nice guys / girls – they wouldn’t lie to you! Just blog away daily for a few weeks and the dollars will roll in. Then as the weeks turn into months, and years, and the bank balance stays static (or worse!) reality kicks in and it’s obviously not happening quite the way those gurus promised.

Getting Paid To Blog – The Reality

I have to be honest – big earnings from blogging didn’t happen for me!

  • A few paid adverts
  • A few product sales after reviews
  • Not enough to make a full-time living!

I have reviewed several products written by fellow bloggers, in return for free copies of the products, and some of my readers have been kind enough to buy the products so I earned a small affiliate commission. Of course the posts remain on my site, so I could earn more commission in the future.

But it can easily take a whole day to go through a product and write up a decent review, which usually means that the “earn by reviewing a product” model is rather hit and miss. Of course I’ve had the benefit of the free product and the time taken to review it also includes my time learning a new skill, so it’s been beneficial to some extent and it’s something I will continue to do for certain trusted product creators.

As an aside I’ve been lucky (or skilled) in my choice of product authors because I’ve always been proud to present them as valuable products on my blog. The other day I actually PAID for a product that was doing the rounds, because I knew I didn’t have the time to review it, and it was so “thin on the ground” I was really relieved I hadn’t attempted a review. Perhaps I’m being harsh on the author – I guess complete beginners would have learned from it, but it wasn’t right for my readers!

I still enjoy my blogging, but as my knowledge and skill has increased – thanks to many helpful bloggers “out there” – it’s obvious that there are hundreds / thousands of bloggers working their socks off and still not making a decent living out of blogging.

But…..

Not Everyone Wants To Blog

Shock, horror, heresy! Over the months I have had to accept that “not everyone” wants a blog. Despite how important I, and all bloggers, think it is.

Many people don’t have the time or inclination to produce (and more importantly) keep a blog up-to-date. So blogging isn’t for everyone. They may prefer social media, for example.

Some may prefer making money with their smartphone by text messages. Now that’s not something I would ever want to do – but that’s no reason to exclude from my target market people who would LOVE to make money using their mobile phone.

My conclusion is that any business model I recommend must provide options for bloggers and non-bloggers.

Another Way To Make Money Blogging

I also became aware of another way that some smart bloggers were actually getting paid to blog.

What never occurred to me was that one of them, Enstine Muki, would actually be generous enough to share his sources with us! Wow!!

UPDATE April 2017 Enstine sold this platform, so – with no recent experience of using the site – I can’t promise what you will experience. A blogging colleague did register recently, so it’s obviously still live at some level, but she experienced delays.

Enstine, who has been a constant inspiration to me over several months now, has developed a new platform called BlogExpose.com that delivers everything a blogger could want.

How It Works For Companies

The concept is so simple, it’s brilliant! The site matches companies looking to have their products and services promoted, with bloggers looking for writing assignments.

So a company will offer an assignment, which may be reimbursed by a free product or by money….

where to find good bloggers

How It Works For Bloggers

… and bloggers looking for writing assignments post their profiles and apply for the listed jobs. Alternatively if a company sees a good match from your profile, a blogger may be contacted direct by the company. This is most likely to happen in the case of featured bloggers.

Featured Bloggers on BlogExpose

Paid Blog JobsHere is a screenshot from inside the site.

The main panel on the right shows a list of the latest jobs and explains how you will be “paid”.

The left-hand panel lists featured bloggers, and you’ll see that you can pay for your profile to be featured, for a surprisingly low cost. If you’re not ready to be featured, you can visit the site regularly and apply for any jobs that you feel are suitable for you.

At the moment I’m just keeping an eye on the jobs posted, because I’ve hardly got time to turn round right now.

The site is easy to use and attractively laid out, so now I’m going to suggest you register free for Blog-Expose.

Have YOU Had Paid Blogging Work?

I left it too late to plan for a financially secure retirement. Don’t make my mistake. Start building an extra income with a part-time (or full-time) business online.

Enstine Muki - May 24, 2015

Wow, Joy you crowned my Sunday.
After church service today, while driving back home, I had the alert on my mobile when your message dropped in. Seeing that it was a message from you, stopped (because I knew when it comes from you, I must pay attention)

After reading your mail, I knew I had to drive home quickly and check this post first thing.

This is the first post after I made the platform public about 3 days ago. There are about 100 bloggers already on board(will have to check the exact figure). I have rejected so many applications too. I want to be able to present a platform that companies will be excited to work on. Some bloggers think it’s a joke so I’m quick to reject such.

There are 2 main things companies should get from the platform;
– Hire bloggers to do their product reviews.
– Hire bloggers to write for their (company) blogs.

The need for business blogging is becoming increasingly evident. Companies now see they have to blog for their businesses.

Here is the deal…

It will be more cost effective to hire a qualified blogger who blogs one time a week for $250 per post. That rounds up to $1000 spent a month to post content. Evidently, this becomes less expensive than employing a full time blogger.

So I think this is one way this platform will help companies

The second phase is paid reviews…

One advertiser was wondering if Google is not going to strike. I said NO because BlogExpose is not a link buy/sale platform.

I have made it quite clear (and will be adding more information) about what Google says about receiving a reward to review ones product

Note that Google is NOT against paid post. What Google fights against is passing page rank on paid posts. This is done when you link out to the reviewed product without adding the nofollow tag to the link.

I encourage both parties (bloggers and companies) to comply with Google terms.

I have had some really good feedback from members. Some are already concluding a deal so the first job to be sealed through the platform will soon be announced.

Yes, if we keep to the rules, we will end up making money on the platform

Your have a wonderful profile and I’m glad you are featured. That certainly will bring you more exposure.

thanks for jumping in with the very first mention. I’m really grateful and will be there to answer any question from users.

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday while preparing for a successful business week 😉

    Joy - May 25, 2015

    Hi Enstine,

    I’m glad you liked my description of BlogExpose, and I’m delighted to have been the first to mention it.

    Your extra information on how it’s running now it’s “live” is interesting too – I am glad you’re applying strict quality standards, and honored to have been selected. It’s nice to think that the companies are “known” to you too, rather than just anybody out of the blue.

    It’s really quick that the first deal will soon be announced; once I’m settled down with my other jobs I’ll be actively looking for work there. You’ve certainly done a great service to us all, and raised the profile of professional bloggers.

    Oops – sorry to have disturbed your Sunday, and my apologies to your lovely family. Hope you enjoyed the rest of the day, and will have a very successful week too. Joy

Chioma Anozie - May 24, 2015

Beautifully organised writeup, Joy. I do agree that making a decent living from just blogging can be a challenge. Most of the online work I have gotten do not come directly from my blogging but indirectly ( I use the blog to show my experience and expertise and normally the blog convinces people that I am not a scam artist that popped up from Mars)

I do know Enstine and I am thrilled by his latest development, BlogExpose. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on BlogExpose as I do intend to join the platform myself. Have a wonderful day, Joy 🙂

    Joy - May 25, 2015

    Glad you liked the article Chioma. Anything by Enstine is almost certain to be top quality, so it was easy to write about it well.

    I guess that’s what most of us have done up to now – used our blog to show our experience. I also use it as a kind of “aide memoire” when I’ve learned something new, so I’ll know where to find it!

    Good that we have a new and reliable platform to use to look for paid blogging.

    Have a great week, Joy

    Enstine Muki - May 25, 2015

    Hi Chioma,
    Good to see you here and thanks for the comment. Always a pleasure to interact with you.

    Yes, Joy’s post is well organized. She knows her stuff when it comes to writing 😉

    See you on BlogExpose soon 😉

Jan Kearney - May 24, 2015

I’ve never been paid specifically to blog, Joy. It is something I have thought about but as yet haven’t seen/been offered anything that is right for my blog.

Like you, I have recommended products and reviewed them but they aren’t “paid” other than any commission earnt. But then my blog isn’t as monetised as perhaps it should be either!

I’ll have a look, it may be a fit for my daughter who started blogging recently. I think she needs a bit of a poke to get to 100 daily readers, but one to bookmark for later.

Thanks for highlighting the new platform Joy 🙂

    Joy - May 25, 2015

    Hi Jan

    I think most of us, until now, have probably been waiting (and in my case hoping) for paid blogging, so now we have an alternative.

    Please let us know if your daughter gets an paid work from BlogExpose, I imagine that would be very encouraging for her.

    Have a good week, Joy

    Enstine Muki - May 30, 2015

    Hi Jan,
    Good to read your comment.

    Just to mention that I added a few more job types as you can read on the “How it works” page. I’d love to hear what you think in the comment box on that page.

    Meanwhile, it will be exciting to have your daughter on board. If there is anything I can do to help her, let me know

BG Jenkins - May 26, 2015

Hi Joy,

I have to say that I’m still in the development process. I have made a little with a few things, but I’m still working on it also. If we keep at it, we will all find our way through it. I’ve not heard of Blogexpose.com so I will take a peek at it. Thanks for including this. I’m sure it’s quite beneficial. Great article. Thank you.

    Joy - May 27, 2015

    Hi BG and welcome to my blog 🙂

    Oh, we’re all still on the long road of development and learning.

    What’s so great is that we can learn from great bloggers like Enstine.

    Hope you find BlogExpose beneficial. Enjoy the rest of your week, Joy

Rachit - May 26, 2015

I’ve tried blogexpose as well and I agree with your review. Online money making is hard, and it gets even harder when we are moving without guidance. When most of the new bloggers dive in the blogosphere they are just attracted by some money making bloggers. But honestly making money online is not everyone’s cup of tea. Most of the bloggers are able to earn only a few dollars, if not pennies.
But with right tools and guidance it is quite possible to earn money online.
I’ve been participating in such blogging communities which pay you to blog.
Although still in kind of beta mode but still blogexpose is an awesome community for both companies and bloggers.
The featured blogger section is awesome, it has also been in broaded.net the traffic conversion tool by enstine.
Overall it was a nice review Joy, thanks for sharing.

    Joy - May 27, 2015

    Hi Rachit,

    Glad you like BlogExpose too. Yes, it’s still early days for the site but in my opinion this is going to be a long-term earner for bloggers, rather than the usual dash to get a product to market, promote it and beat all the others!

    If we get ourselves on a few of these sites, as you seem to have done, so much the better.

    Enjoy the rest of your week. Joy

Hollie Hawley - May 26, 2015

What a great idea! I’ll definitely have a look. And I wish all the best to Enstine on this new project. I’m sure it will solve problems both for bloggers and for companies that need writers for their business blogs.

    Joy - May 27, 2015

    Thanks Hollie,

    Glad you like it – do let me know how you get on. Any success stories always welcome.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, Joy

    Enstine Muki - May 28, 2015

    Hi Hollie,
    Good to hear from you and thanks for stopping by. Do let me know when you finally jump in 😉

Mike Gardner - May 26, 2015

Hi Joy,

Have to say getting paid to blog isn’t something I have ever thought about, as i tend to use blogging as a way to demonstrate expertise and to get readers to my list, and hopefully move them to a purchase in the future. Will check out the site you mentioned, it won’t hurt to register and see what happens

Mike

    Joy - May 27, 2015

    Hi Mike,

    Your approach is certainly what most bloggers do – and a great strategy.

    BlogExpose would also “expose your blog” to other people and, I’d guess that because your subject matter is something apart from the masses and a topic most bloggers would probably benefit from, you may also pick up some people for your list just by being there.

    And of course a little extra income on the way never goes amiss. Do let me know how you get on with it!

    Joy

    Enstine Muki - May 28, 2015

    Hi Mike,
    This is Enstine 😉

    It will be exciting to have you on board. I’m sure better days are ahead so let’s keep giving 😉

Adrienne - May 28, 2015

Hey Joy,

Ah, there is no code to crack for blogging. I think the problem is that so many people are misleading in how this all actually works which is why so many aren’t doing well and eventually quitting.

That’s the direction I’m headed with my consulting, helping people understand what blogging is all about, how to really build your audience and then understand the process of why they’ll buy from you.

I think if all you do is just review products to promote then you’re eventually going to turn your audience off. That’s just selling all the time and they’ll only stop by maybe if they’re in need of something but if you’re not helping them solve their problems as well then it’s going to be hard to keep your audience interested enough in coming back for more time and time again.

I accidentally learned about Enstine’s new platform but reviewing products and being paid for that isn’t exactly what I want to do so I haven’t taken the time to learn more about it. Thank you for sharing this with us Joy and I hope that it provides you with what you’re searching for.

Have a wonderful week my friend.

~Adrienne

    Joy - May 29, 2015

    Hi Adrienne,

    Thanks for popping by and reading about Enstine’s new platform.

    I do agree with you, and just reviewing products won’t be all I do – even though I want to provide solutions for my readers.

    But as part of that process I won’t be able to stop the little stories about my journey online, and the lessons I have learned.

    However, a couple of Enstine’s recent reviews have solved some big problems for me and I’m so pleased he wrote them.

    Fear not – I will be blogging about the horrendous story that led up to my purchase!

    Have a good weekend, Joy

    Enstine Muki - May 30, 2015

    Hi Adrienne,
    Thanks for showing up and dropping a comment on Joy’s post.

    As a matter of fact, there have been some additions to the platform. There are different types of jobs bloggers can get as I outline on the “How it works” page.

    Now, as a vendor, that makes sense to you. You may want to use the platform to recruit Affiliate Bloggers using the “Special Commission” Job type.

    I know your Affiliate Platform (dealguardian)does have facilities to generate unique coupons for your Affiliates. That’s a perfect fit and you know how wild this can go of you get unique codes for bloggers to promote your product.

    I want the platform to actually be useful to both Companies and bloggers so I’ll keep growing it 😉

    I hope you both are having a wonderful weekend

Tasleem Khan - May 28, 2015

Hi Joy,

Thanks for your this post. I am new to blogging and got my first affiliate commission last month, so I have wanted to take if further. Thanks again for an honest review.

    Joy - May 29, 2015

    Hi Tasleem,

    Well done on getting your first affiliate commission. Of course I hope it will be the first of many – sure it will be 🙂

    Joy

Miriam Slozberg - May 28, 2015

Thanks for telling us about Blog Expose as I had not heard about that one. I agree that making money solely from blogging is challenging but I have made money by having a blog to show off what I have done, so it’s a great link to your existence and that is why every business owner needs a blog! But making money FROM the blog is another story.

    Joy - May 29, 2015

    Hi Miriam

    Yes, I agree you’re right. The blog is also your portfolio, rather than just a money-making vehicle.

    Joy

    Enstine Muki - May 30, 2015

    Hi Miriam,
    Just to mention that the platform has many more options as you can read on the “How it works” page.

    There is a comment box on that page so please check it out and let me know what you think.

    Thank you Joy for making this conversation possible

      Joy - May 30, 2015

      Hi Enstine,

      Just to thank you for popping in here to add extra value and information to my visitors.

      Really appreciate your support.

      Have a good weekend, Joy

Donna Merrill - May 29, 2015

Hi Joy,

I don’t get paid to blog, nor do I want to. As a blogger, it is 80% information and 20% product reviews. But when doing a review it can’t stop there. It has to be broadcasted and even advertised in various places. That’s how the money rolls in.

I do have a separate blog whereby I do reviews. Either I’m an affiliate of products, or I know like and trust a person, I will shout it out even if I’m not an affiliate. It’s a mixed bag of meeting the person behind the product because I do believe people buy people.

But that particular blog it is used for marketing purposes which means I do a lot of solo ads, Facebook Target Ads, and so on. And that’s how my list is built and products are sold.

To get paid for writing a blog would be nice if I had the time to do so.

-Donna

P.S. I recently learned about what Enstine is doing and it looks great!

    Joy - May 30, 2015

    Hi Donna,

    Well I can certainly resonate with your statement about getting paid for writing a blog would be nice if you had the time! That’s certainly where I am at the moment. I’d love to do it, because I enjoy writing, but can’t even think about it until I get my offline backlog under control again (after taking time off for Mum’s death).

    I’m interested to hear (well, I already knew) about your two separate blogs. I haven’t gone that way, I mix my reviews in with my ordinary posts. I’m wondering now if I’ve missed a trick…. but, as you say, there’s so much extra work in marketing I’m not in a position to handle another blog. I wish you much success with it.

    Since I started buying from trusted bloggers my experiences of purchasing online have improved significantly – and I spend a lot less money too, which must be good. The perfect example of “people buy people”. (I’ve just joined PAC, of which you are also a member).

    Have a good weekend, Joy

Emebu - May 29, 2015

Hi Joy,

I must confess i have never heard about BlogExpose before, i am hearing this for the first time here. I will give it a trial.

Thanks.

    Joy - May 30, 2015

    Hi Emebu,

    I’m pleased to have introduced you to BlogExpose. I’m sure you’ll like it.

    Please come back here when you’ve tried it and let me know your thoughts.

    Have a good weekend, Joy

Chery Schmidt - May 30, 2015

Hello Joy, I cannot believe I have been so busy that I have not even heard about Enstine’s new site, Of course I do need to check this new BlogExpose site out!
I do appreciate you sharing.

Now as for making money with blogging, well my blog has been a work in progress since day #1! I do have a page I set up for team training so I guess that does count as making money Right? LOL

I have also made some money on my Success resources that I share but I wouldn’t say I am going to be able to retire the way I want doing the things the way I have been with my blog.

I too Am CRAZY Busy with my offline ventures…

Great Share.. Thanks Chery :))

    Joy - May 30, 2015

    Hi Chery,

    Enstine always has something amazing to share with us. I have learned so much from him. I subscribe to his list so I never miss a post.

    Well, we’re all on a “work in progress” route to that “retire in comfort” scenario , and dead right that your team training page counts as making money 🙂

    Glad to hear you’re keeping busy too – have a good weekend.

    Joy

Monna Ellithorpe - May 30, 2015

Hi Joy,

Thank you so much for this review. I am all too well familiar with how inventive and creative Enstine is. I am looking forward to looking at this project of his more in depth.

I believe this is my first visit to your blog. You have a lot of great content here. I will be back.

Have a great weekend.

    Joy - May 31, 2015

    Hi Monna,

    Welcome to my blog, great to “meet” you here and I look forward to connecting again.

    I’m sure you’ll like what you find on BlogExpose, do let me know how you get on with it. I have learned an amazing amount from Enstine, he’s so helpful!

    Enjoy your weekend, Joy

Mark - May 31, 2015

Another totally awesome post Joy!

And I for one absolutely love your “tell it like it is” writing style!

You don’t pull any punches about exactly what’s going on and “what” to
be aware of!

And thanks so much for sharing another extremely helpful resource from
the oh so brilliant Enstine Muki!

That guy is nothing short of amazing! how he constantly comes up with one home run
marketing concept after another, is nothing short o amazing!

I had not previously heard of his latest offering!

So I’ll definitely have to check it out! Thanks!And it’s easy to see “why” you won that big bag of chocolates!LOL!

    Joy - June 3, 2015

    Hi Mark

    Thanks for your kind words about my writing. (I can tell you where to send the chocolate!!)

    Enstine truly is amazing and so very helpful. I hope you’ll enjoy his new project and I’d love to hear how you get on with it.

    Enjoy the rest of the week, Joy

Rohit Gaikwad - June 7, 2015

Hi Joy,

Thanks for revealing option to earn online money. Blogging is like passion for me and i am blogging since last one year but not able to make a sufficient money. Currently i have registered with google for advertisement and will definitely try BlogExpose

    Joy - June 8, 2015

    Hi Rohit,

    I think many bloggers, if they are honest like you have been, are in the same situation. We blog because we enjoy it – but some income to support the hosting costs and the time spent will always be appreciated. Please let me know how you get on with BlogExpose.

    Joy

    Enstine Muki - July 7, 2015

    I’ll surely be excited to have you on BlogExpose Rohit.
    I’m sure we can all make this a success 😉

      Joy - July 8, 2015

      Hi Enstine,

      Hoping to get back to BlogExpose myself soon – just overwhelmed by my offline work at the moment – which can only be a good thing!

      Catch up soon, Joy

Lillian De Jesus - June 7, 2015

Hi Joy,

This is such a great post! It’s very honest and I think a lot of people need to hear this. Many people think they’ll earn so much money from blogging. However I do believe it’s just a small handful of people who can gain a full time income with blogging. Many of those earners are posting their income on their blog which can be quite intimidating. I think it takes many years and several projects/products that help people to achieve this.

Take care,
Lillian

    Joy - June 8, 2015

    Hi Lillian

    I agree with you – I think only a small percentage of bloggers are financially successful from their blogging, which is why BlogExpose is such a useful service.

    Thanks for your visit to my blog, Joy

David Merrill 101 - June 21, 2015

Really interesting article, Joy, and I love the reference to Enstine. He’s always on top of things, and I’m sure this is a great way for many bloggers to go.

I don’t ever equate blogging with making money, no more than I would wonder how to get paid for having a business card or a brochure explaining services I offer.

Business cards and brochures are marketing tools. If you freelance an article for a local newspaper, you don’t expect to “get paid.” It’s just another marketing tool.

What’s really important, is where does your blog (or business card, or brochure, or freelance article)send people. This is what a sales funnel is.

If you heard me on a radio show interview, I wouldn’t expect you to pay me and I wouldn’t expect the station to pay me. But I would hope that you would be interested enough in what I’m talking about that you’d like to get the free article I offer at the end of the show, or give me a call at the phone number I give. This brings you into my funnel.

Now… where do I take you from there? Do I sell you a product I created, do I offer professional services, do I suggest you buy affiliate products or services?

This is where I would finally “get paid.” Or, at least, that’s where I am now well positioned to get paid, and get paid much more than I probably would by getting a few dollars as a freelance writer of blog posts.

A blog is a great place to let people meet you, see what you’re about and ultimately, to invite them to join your email list. Those who do, become potential business partners and customers. Those who don’t… don’t become part of your business, but they’re still great to have on board to give testimony to the free value you offer on your blog.

    Joy - June 23, 2015

    Hi David

    Thanks for your very useful comment – yes Enstine is great. I’ve learned so much from him!

    Sadly you’ve visited my blog when it’s badly broken, with all semblance of sales funnel completely missing. I deactivated all my plugins so that the theme developer could figure out what went wrong. It’s been like this getting on for a week – partly because I only do this part-time, so when anything goes wrong it takes my entire “blogging time” to figure it out.

    Normally I have a Hello Bar at the top to give out a free ebook and take people onto my list, plus a few pop-ups that do the same. In fact I had been wondering if I had too many of these lead capture devices, so once the theme gets fixed, it’ll be a good time for a proper review.

    I have also had such huge problems with my hosting account being hacked and emails from an old auto-responder going straight to spam (even the confirm message!) that I recently moved to SiteGround and Aweber, so I’m still moving my list capture forms to Aweber.

    All this has happened at a time of complete melt-down in my family as my Mum died and I’m trying to help my Dad with his business – from 5hrs away LOL. He’s been my priority.

    For my blogging “career” my original plan was to review products I trust and make sales that way, plus write posts about my business mistakes – there’s been enough of those to keep me going for a couple of years of posts, but I’ve learned a lot. The “reviews” plan has partly been successful as I have made some sales to regular readers who seem to have been happy with my recommendations. A parallel plan was to help beginners with blogging and small businesses with WordPress websites – but there seem to be so many things that can go wrong I hesitate to pursue that too.

    My biggest talent seems to be “breaking all things IT”. In fact that was actually a job I did freelance for quite a while as a systems tester – thoroughy enjoyed it. But when it’s my own blog I’m breaking, and accidentally, and not getting paid to do it, it doesn’t seem such good fun.

    If I hadn’t been such a stubborn old thing I would have quit this a long time ago LOL.

    I really need a complete direction review once I’ve put everything back together again.

    Reminds me of the saying “I’d be having a nervous breakdown if I could only find time in my day to do it” – that’s probably a completely made up saying, but it’s just how I feel!

    Anyway, I’d better stop rambling and go shopping for the next wave of family visitors!

    Lovely to see you on my blog David, and I do hope I’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you back when it’s in better shape and more “fit for purpose”.

Hi Joy

These is a great post indeed I too use blogexpose and I’m also excited to use their service. Before blogexpose I used problogger job board. It was great but still I felt that Daren’s updating rate is a little low that I wasn’t getting more chances. Now that blogexpose is here I’m using both. I also wrote a review from my experience working at blogexpose. I wish you would pass by http://codeblogging.com/blogexpose-best-job-board-for-bloggers/

    Hi Arun

    I’m pleased you’re enjoying BlogExpose. Enstine always does a good job whatever project he undertakes.

    I have never used ProBlogger job board, but thanks for mentioning it so readers may like to check that out too.

    Popping over to have a look at you review of BlogExpose now.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Joy

    Hi Yasin,

    I’m glad you agree with me that BlogExpose is helpful. It’s good to have a trusted resource as opposed to many of the dubious possibilities we come across.

    Have a great weekend. Joy

Hi Joy,
Thanks for this useful article.

Hi Joy, you are an awesome blogger and I admire your style and pragmatic opinions….probably rooted in honesty, not always what you get on the internet…..lol.
I am just a fun blogger, inspired one day…..dry the next week.
Thoroughly enjoy your info and plan to return. If you have ideas to generate income other than blogging, I would love more info….never know.

    Joy - May 11, 2016

    Hi Paula,

    You’re very kind about my blog – and too hard on your own. You have some great articles on your blog!

    The best income I’ve had online of late is Premier Cashback = you can read more about it from the Loyalty Points tab on here. Although you can earn cashback as a passive Premier Cashback member that will take a long time. As with life/MLM in general, steady work will bring rewards. The beauty of Premier Cashback is that there are no sales targets and no compulsory auto-ships, so you can take things at your own time. We’re getting some great results with the health products.

    One of my team is managing my business for the next couple of weeks. If you want more info, register for a free account and she’ll get you into the Facebook group where you can watch videos to learn more before making any decisions.

Joy, thanks for sharing the post.

I agree, Joy. Blogging is too difficult for everyone. isn’t it?

I been blogging since 2009, and heard many of bloggers who want to quit blogging. At the same, many blogs which I’ve subscribed haven’t updated any new content for a long.

Well. Starting a blog isn’t guaranteed to get paid unless you find some ways to monetize the blog and pay your bill.

Actually, I’m a member of BlogExpose as I receive a newsletter from Enstine. It’s awesome and saw he featured you and other fortune bloggers. However, I didn’t get any benefit from BloExpose as I was an inactive members. You did sell some freelance services, and mostly I did it on social media and my own blog.

I though I used read this article, but didn’t leave any comment. But it’s an opportunity to read this again and keep my thoughts.

Thanks for sharing…

    Hi Kim,

    It’s a shame blogging has such a high failure rate – but it’s probably the same in any business.

    BlogExpose was a great idea, as Enstine’s usually are. I got too busy to be an active member, but it was very good to have received some freelance income. If “things” settle down again, it’s an area I’d like to pursue.

Hi Joy,
I am excited about the Job Board for bloggers. Thanks for letting us know about it. I know Enstine but I didn’t know this.
Janice

    Joy - April 22, 2017

    Hi Janice,

    It might be best to contact Enstine directly about this – I have a feeling someone took it over from him and he may be able to let you know if they are still running it. Sorry for the delay. Please let me know if it is still running or not.

Hi Joy,
I signed up for the Job Board. Exciting! There is a job I want to apply for. However, it just keeps saying “Pending”. Does it take them time to review and approve or is something wrong? How much time is normal? Thanks!
Janice

    Joy - April 29, 2017

    Hi Janice,

    It appears you have now been approved! Sorry this took so long, and thanks for your patience. I hope you have success with the job application.
