Thinking about creating a poetry blog

GlobsterGlobster Member Posts: 188 Pioneering
Hello Scope community 
I have another idea of creating a blog for all my poetry 
Do you recon people will pay to read my poetry on a blog or would you keep the blog free 
I would appreciate to hear what the community think about another idea I have

    Hi @Globster, afternoon  :) oh poetry is just what i and many more need at moment! not sure you can be paid? however im not certain. yes, whats your other ideas?

    I don’t know about being paid to read the poetry but isn’t there something whereby you allow adverts on the side bar and you get paid for clicks? Not sure how it all works though sorry.

    Income would be generated by ads, I would have thought. The more popular your blog gets, the more money you earn from ads. @Chloe_Scope would definitely have a better insight into the world of blogging than me!

    Hey Globster,

    That's a great idea! A way to get people to pay to access certain stuff is through Patreon :) You can also have a free blog, and invite people to support you on Patreon if you wish. Alternatively, you can get money through ads on your blog. 

    Hope this helps - look forward to reading! :)

    thank you to everyone for all your fantastic advice 
    I know I asked this question in one many discussion in scope community but which platform in the best for starting a blog?

    Hi @Globster! Sounds great! 

    I would recommend blogger or wordpress. Blogger is similar, but wordpress allows you to personalise things more. :)

    To answer what @Richard_Scope has said, it is possible to make money on ads but this isn't easy and isn't something I personally do.

    You could have a blog with some work, then making the best pieces into e-books so that you can charge for those to be downloaded.

    Hope this helps!
