In my spare time I have been working for an online content provider known as The Content Authority. They charge clients for content that can be placed for article marketing and SEO purposes. To date I have written thousands of article for them at an average of a few hundred words a piece on any number of different topics.
I have recently signed up for a Google Adsense account and I am checking out a site called LogBud.com where I will essentially be doing the same thing except that I can embed the Adsense code so ads will appear that are relevant to the content I produce. This will be one of my first experiences with Adsense so it will be interesting to see if I can start generating some passive income. I could also monetize this blog as well if I can start driving traffic to it in some way.
Its pretty easy to get started with AdSense. You just visit the AdSense home page and sign up for an account. The application is one page and they will let you know in a few days to a week if you are approved. Then you go through their set-up process to start posting ads on your website. Of course you have to have a website in order to post ads however a blog such as this one will suffice or a service such as LogBud that requires an AdSense account to participate.
