Blog about your city and get paid for it

Many are those who wants to make money blogging but are not sure how to start. Many say you should be an expert on your subject to make sure people will read your blog. A very good advice. But what if you don't know what your expertise is?

Here is a very simple idea for you: Blog about your city! Blog about where you live and make people read it. Why would they want to read about your boring city? Well you might think it is boring but perhaps it's not to others.

There are many things you can blog about, you can even have different blogs for one city and different subjects. Things to blog about:

*Restaurants- there you have an excuse to go out and eat.

* Night life

* What to see/ sightseeing- the museum, that hip restaurant everyone goes to etc.

* Unusual things in your city

* Things for kids only, where to find toys, playgrounds, moms meetings etc.

* Housing business, where to find a place to live. Live in Wilmington? Write about Wilmington NC real estate.

* Where to find gifts

* Decorating shops etc

When you have decided what to write about, make sure you add great content and contact the local businesses to see if they would like to advertise on your site. Of course you need to make sure you have good traffic to your site before you offer such thing but once you get your foot in, it can only go forward.

Hi Linda,
Great post. This is what I've definitely had in mind for my .

I've started a section 'True Locals' which ties in with a section of our local newspaper.

Good idea! You could even expand it into a website and offer advertising or referral services.
