Blogging is absolutely one of the best ways to make a significant income online. Don't think about blogging like creating a one-time product, selling a few, then moving on. Blogging is a lot like offline publishing. You're creating a readership, which hopefully will come back day after day to read your blog…and buy your affiliate items and click on your ads. Build a readership large enough and you can make a very good income blogging. This is not going to take place over the next week or so. This is more like a three to six month strategy. But you're building an asset, and the rewards are well worth it.

The topic you choose for your blog is critical. You need a topic that not only has a lot of potential readers on the Internet, but also which is profitable. That is, there are affiliate products, CPA offers, and Google ads that your readers will buy or click on so that you'll make money from all your hard work. Here are three steps to finding a profitable topic (or niche) for your blog.
