One way to make a living as an affiliate is to identify a hot trend or an obsession and write about it. Here’s an excellent example.

Celebrity Baby Blog - cashes in on the obsession millions of people have with celebrities.

It posts photos of celebrities and their babies, tells fans what the babies are wearing, and provides links to stores where the products can be bought.

Does this sound boring to you? Read on and weep when you see the numbers involved…

The blog’s founder, 32-year-old Danielle Friedland, a former Avon Products executive assistant, says she launched the blog in 2004 as a lark, after becoming bored with a blog on knitting.

Some lark. Celebrity Baby Blog now gets 10 million page views a month, according to the Wall Street Journal. Last year it earned $500,000 in advertising from big companies including Verizon, McDonald’s and General Motors.

The blog’s advertising rates sound like something out of the days before the 2001 dot-com crash. They vary from $7 to $35 CPM (per 1,000 impressions). You can see the details here:

Judging by advertisers’ testimonials, they’re getting their money’s worth.

Could YOU have success like that with a blog?

Maybe. Maybe not. If you’re going to try, you need to learn from experts, people like Anik Singal and Rosalind Gardner, who run Blog Classroom, a blog training program showing you the quickest, easiest way to get started online.

If you’ve never set up a blog, you’ll be surprised how easy it is. A WordPress blog is also wonderfully easy to use. The first time I tried one, I was VERY pleasantly surprised.

In their 100+ video training program, Anik and Rosalind will show you everything - how to set up a blog very quickly, how to maintain it in only a few minutes a day, how to get traffic within minutes of posting your first post, which WordPress plugins you use, eight different ways to monetize it, and so on.

Blogs are HOT, there’s no escaping it.

However, out of all the millions upon millions of blogs, most earn pitifully little.

A very small minority of blogger’s have figured out how to make them work extremely well. So if you want to go this route, don’t go alone. Learn from experts.

Their expert training isn’t cheap, so you’ll need to be strongly committed to making this work.
