In this informative guide from bloggingfromparadise.com he lists 12 steps and we chose our favorite 5:
-List Reader Pain Points
Profits reside in pain points.
List your reader’s pain points to monetize your blog intelligently.
Ask your readers what they’re struggling with to build your pain point list.
Kevin Duncan and his writers at Be a Better Blogger hit on pain points wonderfully.
Note how virtually every post leads off with a struggle, a problem or some pain experienced by his readership.
Build your pain point list through polling or by asking your readers on Twitter, Facebook, G Plus and LinkedIn about their problems.
-Build Every Blog Post Around Reader Pain Points
Build every single blog post around topics from your pain point list.
If you specifically solve your reader’s problems through each post you betcha readers will buy your products or hire you.
Even better; these same readers will endorse you and promote you to their like-minded friends, many of whom suffer through similar pain points.
Can you say, “Community Growing 101”?
Don Purdum does a smash up job sharing the struggles his audience faces.
He uses statistics to wake up his readership to what’s *really* not working, and more importantly, what works darn well.
On the internet, either entertain or solve a problem. That is key and so few people think about that.
-Comment on Authority Blogs
Comment on authority blogs to build friendships with influential bloggers, to expand your presence, and to drive targeted traffic to your blog.
Blog commenting is lower profile guest posting in action if you do it right.
Address your fellow blogger by name.
Create a thorough, helpful, 3 to 4 paragraph comment discussing the blog post.
Thank your fellow blogger. Sign off with your name.

-Add 1 Income Stream every 3-6 Months
After adding your first income stream simply learn that channel inside-out, follow pros from that niche and then add 1 income stream every 3 to 6 months.
I adopted this mindset/general monetizing strategy from hacking wizard (clever marketer, not butcher) Matthew Capala at Search Decoder.
Establish multiple streams of income to diversify your blogging cash flow.

A few days ago I received a Paypal payment from a freelance writing client.
Receiving money through 2 or 3 or 5 or 10 income channels boosts your blogging profits in the near term and long term.
