Get paid for blogging

I first learnt about this in MyMomsBest from 5xmom and I was intrigued. I started this blog with the sole intention of capturing Yiu Yiu's growing up moments but thought that jumping onto the bandwagon and signing up with PayPerPost won't do much harm. Nevertheless, when I first visited PayPerPost, I realized that I didn't meet their criteria of having at least 20 posts within the last 90 days as I had not been posting regularly then.

Last week, I realized that I've met their criteria and promptly signed up. I encountered some problems as I was informed that someone has registered using my email address, which is quite impossible as I am using my work email address which is unique to me. I'm not exactly sure what the problem was. Anyway, I wrote to PayPerPost and they were quick to resolve the issue. I could log in to PayPerPost within three days and registered my blog. I didn’t place much expectation as I read in MyMomsBest some members had difficulty getting their blog approved. To my surprise, I saw an email from them three days later informing me that my blog has been approved. So I can now start earning $$$ from my blog. The next big questions are, will I find time to capitalize on opportunities offered and will my posting be good enough to be accepted? And I've just read from Shopping Mum that most opportunites in PayPerPost now require our blog to have Alexa rating. I did some research and discovered that only blogs hosted on individual domain will have an Alexa rating whereas those hosted by Blogger and other free domain will not. So will I ever get paid for blogging? Only time will tell.
