How  to make money from blogging 

1. Set a blog: we cannot make money from blogging if we don't own a blog.
Generally for us to achieve our goal we will need to set up a blog before we start making money from blogging .
To set up a blog we need to get our blog hosted on WordPress.org or blogger.com,these are not the only blogging platforms but they are the best two we can think of.
Its advisable to host your blog by hosting your blog you will have full control over your blog unlike blogger.com where you are limited but never host your blog on free WordPress.com.if you don't have money for host start with blogger.

2. Domain : after choosing platform next step is getting a domain.your domain is what will represent you on the internet.find a name that is related to your niche or any good name.

3. Customization : after getting a host next step you take is design.like I always say,a good blog is defined by unique design and contents .
Customize your blog to your taste ,but maybe limited if you are hosting on blogger.com or WordPress. Com.
I advice any one that wants to go into blogging to consider hosting his/her blog or remain on blogger .
4. Niche:choosing niche maybe something hard to choose,as there are many niches I always tell bloggers write on what you are good at but let it be something that will contribute to your reader's life.
There are some niches that pays off better than other niches.when choosing niche make sure you choose something that would benefit you .

5. Contents : here's what defines you,your ability to write quality contents,your ability to use fluent English, your ability to share your knowledge with others .
Contents are very important because your content is your blog.
try updating your blog frequently ,avoid copying other's work let your contents be original . 
Keep your contents optimized,share your blog posts on social media for more traffic to your blog.

6. Keywords : I tell you if you want to make money with your blog consider practicing keywords because the keywords you use,determines your CPC and earning.
Before writing your posts, use keyword researcher/planner  to know what people are searching ,volume search and CPC of a keyword.

8. Monetization its the least but not the last.
Monetization is a way by which bloggers make money through ads placed on their blog.

When it comes to ads Google AdSense is the best monetizating company up till date.
Google AdSense is based on contextual ads and native ads thereby allowing publishers to sign up,when approved they can start earning money through their publisher AdSense account.
There are other monetizing sites but google AdSense is most popularly used by bloggers to monetize their blog .
To me google AdSense pays better to other monetizing sites.
Though AdSense is very strict.

There are other Google AdSense alternative in case if you decide not to go with AdSense or if you get disapproved you can try media.net,propeller,clicksor,chikita,etc 


Store 
you can make money from blogging by adding store to your blog,allowing your readers to subscribe to your blog,donate or purchase online  items such as eBook,plugin, theme etc .

Affiliate program another good way to make money from blogging .many bloggers are already into affiliate marketing while others ditched AdSense for affiliate marketing .
You can earn upto $100 per sale depending on the product you are selling and company you are running affiliate.
There are well known affiliate companies like amazon,click bank,share sales etc sign up with any affiliate site of your choice and start making money with your blog .
