If you love the internet, know how to write, you can really make a lot of money just by blogging in Ghana.
Blogging is one of the coolest ways to make money online and Ghanaians are not left out.

About blogging
Blogging comes from the word blog and it means "to blog" or make an update to a website. It actually comes from the phrase web log which refers to updates or logs you make to a website as information is updated.

Nowadays, with the growth in web technology and publishing tools, lot of people are into professional blogging due to the unprecended rise in online advertising. So with a blog, you can earn a full time income just for publishing your writings on the internet.

Let me give examples of famous bloggers:
Darren of Problogger made over $100,000 just from selling ebooks on his blog and he keeps making more from online advertising says he was once making over $40,000 a month just from his blog

There are a whole lot more people who earn beyond that from their blogs and if you are in Ghana, even if you were earning at least $1000 a month, that should be enough to inspire you to do it professionally.

How can Ghana bloggers make money?
- By using online advertising e.g. Google adsense, Chitika or Adbrite

- By selling their own e-products

- By doing affiliate marketing with niche blogs

How to be successful at blogging in Ghana
Ghana may not have a lot of internet users with the same magnitude as countries like the USA or China where we already have success stories and so one way you can make more money as a blogger is by targeting a much larger audience such as Africa or the rest of the world and not just Ghana. So tilting your blog occasionally to popular keywords such as ipad, nokia, telecommunication gadgets and how to do social stuff are good traffic bringers.

Also making your content unique and helpful to users can help you get return traffic and more respect by search engines. The more traffic your blog has, the more money it makes.

Blogging periodically should also improve your blog's success and the more content you have, the more you gain authority in your niche.

Some blogging platforms
- Blogger
- Wordpress
- Typepad
- Moveable type

Wordpress and blogger are more commonly used but most professional bloggers go for Wordpress as there is more support and a lot of themes to choose from.
