Blogging should be done for enjoyment only. You cannot make money instantly from blogging and it takes time before you make a single penny out of it. I enjoy sharing every little thought that crosses my mind with my readers in order to help them. I have never thought of monetizing my blog till now and will not do it until people start believing in me completely. One most important thing to keep in mind is that you must endorse products which you feel confident that you can buy yourself as well.
According to recent study an average blogger earns $ 7,500 per year. This revenue includes PPC ads like Adsense and Bidvertiser, money earned through sales and revenue earned by writing product reviews. A blogger from U.K/U.S.A/Europe earns $ 10,000 per year from his blog while an Asian blogger earns only $ 2,350 per year. So do not give up your full time job to concentrate on blogging. You need at least 5 years to establish yourself as a blogger and build your reputation, before you can think of taking blogging as a full time profession. Keeping yourself motivated can be hard sometimes and this is the reason why you see so many blogs which are dead.
Here are a few points you need to remember as a blogger to help you keep interested in blogging.
1. Write posts regularly.

4. Interact with other bloggers.
