Actually if you see the most earning blogs you would find their monthly incomes being better than what you earn in a middle management position for a year! It is all about your passion and your zeal to write and let the world read what you write. If they love what you write, you are not required to slog yourself to do something else that is just a way of earning for you.

Another way to market your blog and monetize it is to use WordAds. You need to install Jetpack and AdControl for it and then accordingly add suitable widgets.
Another super method to earn while you blog is to install Infolinks. It is an ad network that helps you show ads on your website within the margin breaks. You can see different ads playing and coming in as a popup which results in people reaching out. It is more of the CPC and CPM marketing than direct advertising. You transfer them traffic from your website and they pay you in return, simple!
It is another successful way to earn with BuySellAds seeking 25% commission for playing and controlling the ads on your website. You need to register with them and leave the rest to them for this commission. You can decide on the slot to be sold and they will trade it with the advertiser who wants to seek that slot on your blog.
You can add this Plugin directly and use it to sell your spots. Once you set it right, ads will begin to play and you would get commission. You need to have a PayPal account to receive your payments.
Selling your space
You can sell your space yourself by declaring them on your blog. You need to register with websites like Advertisespace or similar. They will pay you on CPM basis or on fixed cost basis as the case may be.
Sponsored posts & articles
This is another way if you have a good traffic. This is simply inviting someone else to write on your website while they pay you for the same.
Build an E-mail list
This is a tested method which might appear like a drag to you, but you should try this and observe the difference it makes. You can do this by keeping an option to subscribe for alerts through email in your website.
An Online Store
You can also do this if your content is all about some products, product reviews and the likes.
Selling text-link ads
You might want to sell text-link ads through your website for an income in return. This is quite a prominent way.
Another great way of creating advertisements is through display of audio ads on your website. It has the advantage of creating curiosity to click.
Use Content locking
It is a legitimate style to make people click on an advertisement or perform some action to read your post further.
This can be a very good monetizing option. You can add coupons from travel or apparel websites to your website.
Google Referral Program
This is different from AdSense and makes you richer when Google pays you for referring your audience to use Google products.
