Geoff, Williams. “Can You Make Real Money Blogging?” US News and World Report MONEY. July 11, 2013. Web. November 17, 2014.

The reason I chose this article for my research paper is because it justifies blogging for money.  While some people may think that it requires too much work and too many hours, this article helps settle those arguments against blogging for money.  It also explains how starting a blog for money will not be super successful right off the bat and it takes time to build an income.  One of the most significant points that they make is the fact that every little bit counts.  While you may not be able to make a living off a blog, you can possibly pay your bills and mortgage with it.  They provide valid reasons as to why creating a blog for money could be successful even if you feel it is not providing enough.
