Welcome to my Weekly FAQ Session
Here I will feature questions asked by readers, social media connections and others who simply message me on Facebook Messenger to ask questions. Rather than spending hours upon hours answering emails and explaining each question to one person at a time, I am hosting a weekly FAQ Session so that we can all learn together.
Coming soon: we have another advancement on this FAQ session coming by end of 2016, keep your eyes peeled!
This week’s question was asked on our Happily Blended Facebook Page by Debra:
How Can You Make Money Blogging Without a Website?
While my immediate answer to this question was that “you cannot make money blogging without a website“.
I had to think deeper about the question Debra had posed to me. I do believe you can make money blogging without a website. You may have a more difficult time earning revenue if you choose to make money blogging without a website, but difficult doesn’t mean impossible.
Ways to Make Money Blogging Without a Website
- Become a Contributor – some bloggers will pay to have a person contribute on a regular basis to their blog.
- Pitch a Magazine – write some articles on your own and send them to various magazines to see if you can’t pitch them to become a paid writer on their team.
- Use a Facebook Page – instead of having an actual website, use Facebook Pages to promote your skill of blogging using their notes section and have the page setup as a services offered page.
- Write for Free – the best way to make money blogging without a website is to get your writing samples published, this validates you as a writer and helps you to earn more revenue from other people’s blogs.
So … How Can You Make Money Blogging without a Website?
I have given some ideas on how you can make money blogging without a website to help spark your creative side. If you are adamant on not having your own website, then you are setting yourself up for some difficulties in making the most cash flow working from home. It is possible to make money blogging without a website if you use some of the tips I set forth above, but it will take longer to build the revenue stream you may seek.
I wish you much luck and hope that you get creative with this, also, if you ever need a WordPress blog setup, I am your gal! Feel free to give me a shout and I can get you setup and running with your own blog in no time!

Always looking for quick, direct and inspiring pieces like this. Nice post!
These are all great ideas. Becoming a contributor for a paid site is a good way to make money blogging without having your own website.
I have heard great things about becoming a freelance contributor. It serves as an ideal extra cash option for people with limited spare time too.
Writing for someone else is a great way to get your feet wet if you’re not sure if you want to have your own blog. It’s also a great way to make some extra cash.
Great ideas. I actually make more using my social media channels than I do blogging, so there’s always that, too!
All great ideas! You can also concentrate on Instagram, Snapchat, and You Tube- Stick with those and do a LOT on there and you can eventually make money
Thanks for the great information. I am always looking for ways to make some extra money.
These are great ideas! Very helpful for those who wants to start blogging even without website!
I technically make money blogging without a website by being a VA which would fall under your list as a contributor. I DO have my own blog but I get money the other way as well.
I love having my own blog and love the revenue I glean from it. I use some of the other avenues you list as well.
I have a friend who contributes and gets paid very well. She rarely even uses her own blog anymore.
These are great ways to make extra money. I will have to give these a try.
Thanks for the tips. They will be helpful even for those who have a blog and just want to create an additional stream of income.
That’s a smart way to think outside of the box. It did seem like an unusual question to start with but it makes sense now.
Oh, this is nice. I never thought that it is possible. Thanks for the brilliant idea!
I’m with one of the above commenters, I make a ton just from my social channels, you can definitely make money online without a blog! Good Post!
