This is my take on how you how can write a blog about football and show you how to make extra money from it?

This topic came about from one of you lovely readers who asked this question how can they do what I am doing right now, in other words writing a blog?

They asked me is there a way of me showing you how you can write a blog about football ( or about anything you like) and show you that can anyone do this?

The answer is yes I can show you how to write a blog and explain the ins and outs of getting it right.

This is my break down, move by move, from one position into the next on how to write a blog…about football

What am I passionate about?

Firstly you need to  decide on your topic in this case football. There are an unlimited number of things you could write about within this topic.

Let’s say today you say today’s topic within football is that you wanted to talk the reader about how to score a goal?

This is how you would go about it and put the whole blog or article together and begin.

Start with you headings. ( eg look at the start of the paragraph – What am I passionate about?  – that is a heading)

You need at least four or five catchy headings throughout each page and article all related to how to score a goal?

The first heading lets the reader know what the whole article will be about?

The last one needs to be like a conclusion heading for you to sum up the article for your readers.

Here are five headings below to wet your appetite and make you want to read this article.

How to score a goal with my left foot

How to score a goal with my right foot?

How to poach a goal from inside the area?

Using your head to score a goal?

Let your goals propel you into the limelight! 


After each heading you need to break down that section with some words about that heading. That is called the content of the blog. The body of the article. It is describing to your reader what you want to say about your topic

Your article you write needs to be at least 1000 words minimum to fully explain what you are talking about. This amount of words will give your blog a full  look and give you enough words to be able to get your point across to whoever decides to read the article on the world wide web.

Below is an example of what I am talking about the heading followed by some words. It’s just a easier to show you what I am writing about for you. ( sorry to say it’s a snippet explaining things to you and not the full story )

How to score a goal with my left foot?








If you are going to score the goals for your team and become know as a goal machine then you need to make sure that you are two footed. Let’s start by looking at the left foot…etc

Above I made the main heading bigger to catch the readers eye then I followed it with what the content explaining what the heading is all about.

Just simply follow this procedure down the whole page so thats 4 or 5 catchy headings and content below each one and you will have your required number of words ( about 1000) and a complete article.

When you have enough words and before the next heading, it is time break the content you have written down into smaller easier to read parts. A few lines then a gap.

Why do you need to do this? In today’s fast pace world people dont have the time to scroll though a difficult to read article. It needs to be made as easy as possible to read.

This is the whole point of wriiting the blog in the first place, for the whole world to read it and to keep coming back to your future blogs to read more.

Congratulations you have the basic to a blog about football.

So what is next to complete your amazing blog?

A picture is worth a thousand words!

Next thing to think about before you send it to the world to read is how can make your article more special to attract the readers  to what you are saying, without adding any more words. In other words make it more appealing?

The simple answer for you is add images throughout the article about 3 or 4. There is no set amount here, the pictures just need to catch your readers eye throughout the page

The key here is to make sure the pictures relate to what you are talking about. for example your blog is about football and how to score a goal so add a picture like this below. Not some ramdom picture of a person standing on a beach because that would make no sence and confuse your reader.



Next step is where do you find pictures for you to use?

With the right know how and tools you can find them free throughout the internet. It is easier than you think to find them and then to add them into you blog post. You just need the correct training (more on that later in the article so keep reading)

You can also add youtube videos to your article, they have a special embedded code in them which you can place into your article and it will appear as the youtube video you want.

Again make sure this youtube video relates to what you are talking about. It needs to add value to your blog post.

Adding the code is an easier task than you think, again you just need to lean how to do this?

So far you have heading, some amazing content for you reader to enjoy, pictures to bring your article to life and a youtube video in place showing the reader more of what you are talking about.

Good let’s move on now.

Can writing a blog make you money?

Is there something you can do within your article to give you the opportunity to make any money?

The answer is yes, you simply add a link to some highlighted words throughout the content of your blog.

The link takes your reader to a specific product that you are promoting,

That gives the reader the chance to go and buy something through your lovely website or article.

Your article is about how to score a goal, remember to say the words to score the perfect goal you need the best boots that make sure you have power in your shot, etc. See how the words are highlighted. It makes them stand out and your reader is attracted to them.

Where does any link go?

It could send them off to amazon for example. Firstly you need to sign up to that company’s affiliate program, who’s products you want to promote. There are millions of products and all companies need  people to promote, market and sell those products for that company.

Then they give you an affiliate code for that product attached to your name. ( it’s technical and thankfully you dont need to worry about that)

This link is in code form and you place it into where the words  have been highlighted in your content. ( with a simple click of a button)

That’s it now you never need to change it forever. Anytime anyone reads this article and decides to click on the highlighted word, the potential is there for you to make some money.

Sounds difficult to do but is actual quite easy to do with the correct training and know how.

Let’s say you have 50 or even 100 articles with 3 or 4 links on all of them, to products for readers to look at.

You do the maths. I smell potential to make money and so do you!

Thats it job done!  You have written a blog about football.

The best this is you can adopt the same process for any topic food, travel, beer, fasion, the latest gadgets etc.  So you could have a blog about anything that interest you.

Every article goes through the same procedure and process.

So once you learn how to do one you could write 1000 or more articles if you wanted to.

Extra sectets to learn that only you will know…shhhh!

There are a few other secrets you can do to make more money from writting a blog. Add pay per click adverts to you blog, add banners to you blog. You will be taught how to do this too.

One place for you to learn it all!

Congratulations you have learnt how to put together and write a blog about anything you like. The big question is, you need a place and a space to write these amazing blogs on?

That is where your own website is needed, again just like this one

Now what if I say you could start to build one for free and it will only take you five minutes to set the shell of a website up. Remember the highlighted words will link you to go and take you to somewhere else. I have written an indepth blog about teaching you how to set up your own website for free. Read it here “how to build a free website talking about football”.

Good now the last piece of the writing a blog about football is to complete the puzzle is?

To be provided with expert training and to learn exactly how to put everything I have written about into place. The correct training and learning tools. which will show you exactly how to add a link, how to sign up to affiliate program, how to add the picture etc.

There is a place that gives you expert training and all the training tools with no upsells.

Just you and hard work is required.

My number one  and recommendation that will give you all the training you could ever need and much more is the Wealthy Affiliate platform. They will show you how to do Affiliate Marketing from the begining right through to being an expert.

This is where I learnt how to do all of this. A few short months ago I knew nothing about this process I just took my shot at success and ran with it. The proof is in this website.

You can do the same!

If you would like to learn more about this platform and the wonderful community (the hidden jem behind it all) that work within it, then I have written a blog which you can read all about here called the “How to in Affiliate Marketing”.

Thank you for reading and I hope I explained the process clearly enough to you.

I hope you have enjoyed my blog about how to write a blog 🙂

    Hi Kimberleigh

    Thank you for the amazing comments. What a good question? A blog post like this can take anything from 45 minutes to a couple of hours, depending on how fast you can type and how much you have learned it being able to put the right things in the right place. Also it takes time if you are a perfectionist and want to get everything just right.

    That is the key if you learn to do it right from the start it makes it easier when you want to put the whole thing together.

    Take care and thanks once again for reading this blog.

Awesome job of integrating a lot of useful knowledge. Use of your example simplifies the whole idea. And Football aka soccer, is a great subject to show how you can monetize a popular subject. I myself help people and am asking if I could quote some of your inside knowledge to my students?

    Matthew Hofman · 19/04/2019 at 6:14 pm

    Hi captdennis thank you for the kind message. It is an honour that you would consider some of what I have written about good enough to help you students. feel free to share this post with who ever you like.
    Good luck and thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

Who would have thought that starting a blog about football would be this easy. It definitely seems easy to start and the process was explained so it can be easily understood. I always read football articles from different website and I really did wonder how the owners of those football blogs make money. 

I guess now I know and I think it is a really cool idea. I might have to give this a try. Thanks for this post and for sharing the way to write a blog about football and also how to make money from it.

    Matthew Hofman · 19/04/2019 at 2:13 pm

    hi Jay . I am pleased  I might have inspired you to give it a try and write your own blog. There is always room for one more, as we all have our own thoughts and ideas about any particular idea ad topic.

    The key to success writing any blog is to work ward, learn how to do it right from the start. Have the right tools in place to make things easier while you are learning. Then have all the support and back up in case you get stuck and need help.

    Good luck to you and I look forward to seeing what you get up to with your blog.

    Take care

Great idea to promote wealthy affiliate. And adding your experience is also good, I don’t think you brought up keywords. You could talk about that and then promote Jaxxy in there. Good post, but I did notice some unnecessary question marks. I wish you all the success you need and deserve!

    Matthew Hofman · 19/04/2019 at 2:19 pm

    Hi Buffy. Thank you for the comment.

     I did not mention key words yet as that is in the pipeline for another post. You use key words to get google rankings and improve the search engine optimiser that gets you those rankings.

    This post remember is about how to write the initial blog. Yes it is important for you to drive traffic into your website and I will  be looking into that.

    Thank you for leaving me a comment and for taking time out to read this blog post.

    good luck to you.

Hi great post and very informative. I particularly enjoyed the paragraph about where to use images and this article is relatable and gives examples of how you can use any subject you are passionate about to make money from good content. I also like the way you had the email capture pop up too and not too soon so that you missed being led into the article. Thanks 

    Matthew Hofman · 19/04/2019 at 2:23 pm
