1. Set up your blog. You can have the option of using their URL (e.g. http://widgetsblog.blogger.com) or use the blog software in your own domain name (http://www.widgetsblog.com). Some of these are free, while some has monthly/annual subscription
Here are some places that will allow you to create your own blog

2. Create great content. Everything starts with content. Give a reason why visitors will frequent your site. Why will they want to read your blog? Why will they want to spend their time in your blog? Provide value, useful information and other benefits to the readers.
3. Get traffic to your blog. You can’t earn from your blog if the blog does not have traffic. Getting traffic is going to be your biggest challenge.

Use carnivals, which are a technique for showcasing your blog. Carnivals occur once a week, and you need to submit your blog post to the carnival moderator.

4. Think of how to monetize your blog. One of the most common way of earning money from blogs is through advertising and donations. Here are some ways you can earn money from your blog:
Google Adsense http://www.google.com/adsense
Chitika eMinimalls http://www.chitika.com
Text link ads – you can sell for fixed price for a fixed period of time
Donation (yes, you can beg)
Affiliate programs such as Commission Junction http://www.cj.com and the Amazon Associates program
Many make the mistake of believing that once they create a blog, people will immediately flock to it. There are millions out there so why would they visit your blog? The only way you can earn money from your blog is if you write great content that will get people interested to visit your blog. The more traffic your blog has, the more income it can generate
