$2,708.96/month from a Niche site? Want to learn how for free?

If you are serious about learning how to make money online, or have earned some for a while, but want to get a grip on what’s new and hot now, read along…

A long time ago, a year or two, a well know blogger started a challenge called NSD. He wanted to challenge someone to build the most earning niche site. They both set out to do the best site possible, while describing what they did and how they did it. Also about failures to accomplish what they wanted, but also successes. One of the sites is still alive today and earning $2708.96 in passive income a month. Or as passive as a site can get. There will always be something to update and fix, but with earnings you can hire someone to fix it.

So do you want to build your own niche site? Participate in a challenge about it?

Its Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome.com which is hosting the NSD (Niche Site Duel). He has already started with the work on his next niche site. And it was quite fun the last time he did it, lots of insights and obstacles to be handled.

As I said, he has already started this years duel. And yes, its free. Everything he discovers and does about the site is posted on SmartPassiveIncome.com for you to read. I did a search on his blog and this URL keeps you up to date on everything regarding NSD 2.0: http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/?s=Niche+Site+Duel+2.0

So, will you participate this year? What niche do you have in mind?

6 Best Blog Sites

Part 1 of 6 best blog sites:

WordPress

Holy grail of blog sites. You got two options, wordpress.com which they host for you or the other one wordpress.org which you download and install on your own hosting and domain. I recommend the last one since you can play a bit more and can’t get kicked out, unless you stop paying for hosting or domain. You have all the options you can think of and a big community to help you,  even professionals if you are willing to pay for it. But it’s a harder learning curve than the others. Check it out!

Twitter

I don’t know if we should call it a blog, but blog is short for web log, so it’s kind of that. You only get 160 characters to play within each “post” so you learn to compress your message into few words and people today have little time so it’s a perfect match. Check it out!

Blogger

The big G (Google) owns this one. It’s easy to start out with, but has some limitations, but if you start out with this one you will see if you have the blogger inside you. Check it out!

Part 2 of 6 best blog sites:

Weebly

This is a cool site, allows you to make 1 site for free. Has a lot of templates readymade for you to use. I used them to be a satellite site for one of my Norwegian blog sites, and it has steadily given me a lot of visitors, it is indexed well by Google. The blog feature is easy to use to a beginner and you can own your own domain, making it look more professional. Check it out!

Tumblr

The tumble log as it is known for is a different type of blog environment with some features that social media have. Good options on importing blog posts from other sources if you are converting to it. Plus for having a great community within and is ability to photo blog if you are more into that. Check it out!

Posterous

Also good importing options here. And you can post much of the same content as the above blog sites. What’s good about it is you just have to send an email to post@posterous.com to start your blog, or post a new one. Check it out!
