Yes, blogging! I know what you’re thinking. You’re not a blogger? You don’t have time? You don’t know what you’re doing? Blogging can be so easy and it’s tons of fun. Even some beginners can earn money. On a new blog you could potentially make hundreds or thousands each month, depending on your topic among other things.
