    You might want to concentrate on building and developing a successful and profitable blog before you start trying to make money from it. If your blog includes quality content and you have good traffic going to it, it will not be too difficult to make money from it with programmes such as Amazon, CJ.com and Google Adsense.

    However, if your blog is new, lacking in content and is not attracting many visitors it will be very difficult to make any level of money from it regardless of how clever you are with implementing affiliate schemes.

    It is worth remembering that when your blog is in the early stages of development, too many ads can turn your visitors off to the extent that they don't visit your blog again. In summary I'm saying get a nice blog, write lots of original content for it and only then after you have built up some regular traffic should you focus on making money from it.

    Do you have a blog yet?

    Thank you all of you for your suggestions.
    But sometimes i feel that i dont have content to showcase i.e i feel what i know is so general that people can go to some news site or some other blog for that information.
    what should i do when i am in such dilemma?

    My present blogs are :

    http://cineaddict.com
    http://lifemainkabhikabhi.com

    i will be obliged if you give your suggestions on how to improve my blogs.
    i will treat your comments as constructive criticism.

    gnine your second blog http://lifemainkabhikabhi.com does not open for me.

    Your Cine Addict blog is a nice design and it is an excellent domain name, being a short and memorable dot com. It also has the advantage of being very descriptive of what is actually on the site. If you keep writing on your blogs you will learn how you like to write and what your visitors enjoy. Try to have some original angles in your blog and tell your visitors something about the movies that they may not know themselves even if they have seen the movie. This will give them original content on a topic they are interested in and hopefully keep them coming back for more.
