There are more than 152 million blogs on the Internet, according to a November 2013 post in the online WordPress blogging magazine WP Virtuoso, and a new blog is created somewhere in the world every half-second. That adds up to a whole lot of blogs, but not every blog is a moneymaker for its owner. Blogging probably won’t make you obscenely rich, but it can earn you a decent income if you’re willing to work at it. However, some platforms are better for monetization than others, and of the numerous blogging platforms available, WordPress is arguably the best one for those who wish to reach a large audience and are serious about monetizing their blogs.
WordPress provides numerous monetization options, as well as flexibility and outstanding support. And its self-hosting version, WordPress.org, offers a range of plugins that can help make monetization even easier.
