How to make money from a Christian blog: Is it necessary?
Should anyone try to make money from a Christian blog? I want to say it’s necessary to try to make money from your Christian blog for the following reasons.
- If you’re adding real value to your Christian blog, you should also gain materially from it. Paul said to the Corinthians, “If I sow spiritual things to you, I should also gain materially from you”
- You will always need money resources to keep your blog online so you need some financial income to put the blog online and to make it remain online.
- When your blog is becoming popular online, marketers or companies will approach you for ad placement. You can’t reject their proposals if their ads do not kick against what your blog stands for.
- Placing relevant ads on your Christian blog can also help users of your blog to find useful and relevant materials that will help them.

With a newsletter, you will have an opt-in form in your blog to capture the contact information like email address visitors to your blog. You must have a gift or a bait advertised with your form to entice them to sign up.
When you capture their email addresses, you can then begin to send personalized emails to them teaching them more about what your blog teaches. Of course, occasionally, you can always send information about your products and services to them.
