  1. These tips on how to monetize your blog are great, however, it comes all down to generating enough traffic. I believe that that’s crucial, and you mostly achieve it with quality content. It’s very unequal how much people make with their blogs and I think there are different aspects to consider. Another good way of monetizing, by the way, are cooperations for instance with tourist boards and other companies. Not only do they grant free travel, you also can write for their site and sell them your pics.
