Posted on May 3, 2006Steve Pavlina blogs that he is now making $200 a day from his blog. In the same post he also provides detailed advice about how to make money from your blog. Steve makes a lot of good points in his article. We have summarized a few of them here.
Steve Pavlina also explains his views on post length.
Pavlina obviously doesn't object to longer articles since this one was over 7,000 words long. Long authoritative articles might have an advantage in that they can generate more inbound links than brief posts if they are well-written.Bloggers have different opinions about the right posting length and frequency. Some bloggers say it's best to write short (250-750 word) entries and post 20x per week or more. I've seen that strategy work for some, but I decided to do pretty much the opposite. I usually aim for about 3-5 posts per week, but my posts are much longer (typically 1000-2000 words, sometimes longer than 5000 words, including the monster you're reading right now). That's because rather than throwing out lots of short tips, I prefer to write more exhaustive, in-depth articles. I find that deeper articles are better at generating links and referrals and building traffic. It's true that fewer people will take the time to read them, but those that do will enjoy some serious take-away value.
