We all know how hard it can be to find a job and make ends meet. Teens are being especially hard hit in this economy. Most of us can use some extra cash these days. If you're working part time or are out of work

and have decent writing skills, blogging jobs can provide just the opportunity you need. You don't even need to set up your own blog – there are many successful bloggers who need help from other writers to keep up with enough postings to catch the attention of their audience, as well as the search engines. The life blood of a blog is fresh, provocative postings. The more postings, the better. So how do you go about locating blogging jobs? There are a number of ways. Let's take a look.

Google 'blog directories' for hundreds of thousands of results. Blog directories are typically organized by topic, so investigate topics in which you have some knowledge. If you're the opinionated sort, this can be a plus for you when looking for blogging jobs. Opinion pieces are quite popular, simply because such postings invite comments and can boost readership.

Check out writer's sites which provide job listings. Google 'writing blogging job' to turn up a good selection. As you find sites with plentiful blogging job entries, be sure to bookmark them, so that you can easily skim through the possibilities each day. These jobs go fast, so you want to stay on top of your search.

Again, use Google to search out the most popular blogs and topics. There's a good chance that the most popular blogs will need help. Send the blog owner a query, along with a sample of your work. The sample should naturally be geared to the topic matter of that blog. This is also a good way to build up some pieces which can can use later. A sample should be from 150-300 words in length.

There are blog networks which offer free blogs in which you can write on just about anything you like. The individual blogger is paid per posting and receives a percentage of ad revenue. These blogging jobs won't make you rich, but as you build a readership, the income grows. This can be an excellent opportunity for teens or SAHMs, looking for a little extra cash.

If you enjoy writing, blogging jobs can be a lot of fun. You get to work from home, set your own hours, have your say and meet some interesting people online. It's also a good way to improve your writing skills. Oh yes, you'll also be making some money!

Blogging jobs generally don't pay much per piece - $1-$3 are typical rates, depending on the length of the posting. However, the more you write, the more you earn. These types of blogging jobs can also serve as your apprenticeship in the blogging world. When you feel confident enough and have developed a following of readers, start your own blog with your own domain name. Then you get all of the ad revenue, which can be substantial on a well established blog. (TIMExplore.com)
