WebProNews is at the BlogWorld and New Media Expo in Las Vegas. In a session on "Smart Ways To Monetize Your Blog" the speakers discussed strategies to generate revenue for blogs.

Jeremy Schoemaker from Shoemoney said a really smart way to monetize your blog was through affiliates. Schoemaker said, " I feel affiliate and direct ad sales are the best way to go." He touched on affiliate marketing saying, "The key in affiliates is finding your niche." Everyone has an affiliate, so you should do what you like.

He advised on not using AdSense for blogs and that for affiliate income, banners are also something to stay away from. As for monetizing your blog he said, "Money should be second nature. You can’t plan for when something is going to blow up. It’s all about timing, you don’t know when it’s going to happen."

Rebecca Weeks of Real Girls Media Network spoke about her site Divine Caroline that is aimed at women. She said because of the success of the site they had to launch Real Girls Media to support their strong advertisers demand.

On monetizing your blog she said, "If you have not monetized your blog, you really need to do it." She added "There’s actually no down side with working with an advertising agency."
