While Adsense is probably the best known and one of the easiest ways of making some money from your blog, there are plenty of other ways. Affiliate marketing is big business and if you can find a program that fits well with your site and your audience you can do very well. So here's a few links to help you out: Amazon: their affiliate program has been around for years. You can earn commission on pretty much everything they sell including "marketplace". NB: if you use their API and don't send enough "quality" traffic they will cull you without warning WebGains: they've got several Irish and Irish targeted merchants in their network. You can also signup to other merchants from around the world if you think you've got the right kind of traffic TradeDoubler: same as above, but probably a wider selection of merchants Affiliate Window: similar to the other two, with literally thousands of merchants across multiple sectors Commission Junction: thousands of merchants across multiple sectors and markets. You can search for merchants that ship to specific countries Rakuten: another large network There are plenty of other affiliate networks out there. Several of the big players have a presence of some kind in the Irish market, though last I heard most of them don't have offices here.
