Appearance counts, take a look at your blog.

* How does it look?
* Does it load quickly?
* Imagine you’re an advertiser - would you hire you?
* Clean up any visual clutter and create clear and easy to navigate archives.

You may love those falling hearts or shooting stars, but if you’re trying to make money blogging, you might want to skip those cutesy things.

Now that you’ve cleaned up your blog visually, it’s time to look at content.

Does your blog have a primary topic? What’s your readership? Those are the areas you’ll want to focus on when you start searching SponsoredReviews for opportunities.

Take time to make your posts, all of them, even the unpaid ones, really stand out. Create clear headlines that are search friendly. That means that cute play on words that’s funny, but has nothing to do with your post is a no-no.

Incorporate at least one key point into your title and think of your post’s title as a mini post. Spell check the post - then do it again and if grammar and spelling aren’t your strong suit, have a friend help.
Earn some money - finding the right opportunities

OK, you’ve upped the quality factor on your blog, it’s time to start making some money blogging. Log in to that SponsoredReviews account and start searching for opportunities. What? You don’t have an account yet? It’s free, sign up.

Search for opportunities that match your blog's category and readership. Price your blog right - SponsoredReviews even offers tips based on your blog's stats and offer reasonable bids.
