Part-time bloggers earning full-time incomes -- Give it a try!

Blogs are becoming a must-have outlet for advertisers and, with that development, recreational bloggers with an interesting message are finding themselves earning pretty impressive paydays on a part-time basis.

Easy to use advertising systems like Google AdSense are allowing people to set up a blog with advertising in just a few minutes. Create high-quality content that pops up in prominent searches and gets linked on more prominent blogs, and you could be well on your way to a substantial supplementary income. Best of all, you need almost no technical expertise and, with sites like BlogSpot and WordPress hosting blogs for free, you don't need any capital either.

If you overextended yourself financially this holiday season and are looking for a low-risk business venture to try to add some extra income this year, don't try multi-level marketing. Try blogging!

A couple books that might help you get started if you have a hobby or other interest that you think could make a compelling blog: Start Your Own Blogging Business and Blogging For Dummies.
