Whether you started out with your blog as just being personal, or whether you had the vision in mind that you wanted to take it all the way and make it into a business, your blog will naturally go that way. One thing will lead to another, and before you know it you will have brands and companies approaching you, asking for you to do collaborations.

Once you start, it’s hard to stop. It’s nice to make money from a venture that you actually enjoy doing, you don’t have to do much to actually sort, and that you can progress with. The world of blogging is just so much fun, so let’s see if you’re ready to make your blog a business!
What Makes It A Business
So, this is the first thing that you need to think about. What actually makes a blog a business? Well, to be a business, you generally have to buy and sell things, and that’s exactly what will happen with your blog. You might buy merchandise to review, and you might sell your reviews to different companies. Usually, a company will approach you, but a lot of bloggers actually approach the brands that they want to collaborate with, so it’s up to you which route you go down. If you want to really make it a business, you could use your blog for E-commerce. If you love making homemade things, whether it be something like a photo frame, or even something like cakes. If you use wholesale ecommerce solutions alongside your blog, you could be making money from all angles. Not only will you make posts from guest posting etc. but you’ll also have a second mini business on the go in the form of things that you like to make. Using a E-commerce solution will make it so easier for you to manage what could be a chaotic ordeal.
What Path Do You Want To Go Down
You need to think about what path you want your blog to take, because it really will influence whether you turn it into a business, and how much you can make from it. You don’t want to get sucked into guest posting with too many links all of the time. The consequences could mean that you blog becomes banned, halting all you money making efforts in their tracks! We would advise that you stick to doing reviews, and the odd collaboration post along the way. Not only will it interest your readers more, and bring in the money, but it’ll keep you away from the risk of losing your blog to guest posts.
Keeping Your Blog True To You!
It’s so important that you don’t lose sight of what you started your blog for. If you started it to blog about your life, make sure that you carry on doing that. If you started it because you want to make it a business and only a business, then don’t give up until you do. But, the main thing we want to make sure you don’t do, is ruin a perfectly good personal blog, including losing some of your followers, in a hunt for money!
