Already Established Blog - Question

I've got a blog that I've been running for about a year now - before I got into IM.

It's got about 1.2 to 1.5k unique hits a day, avg 230 repeat readers each day, 200+subscribers between email and RSS.

How can I monetize it?

I already do product reviews and I've started up a newsletter series (this week, already up 60 subscribers).

Do you guys have any other ideas?

Actually Mark did a cool webinar with Mike Long a couple of days back where he analysed an authority type style blog on call (Forward to 116.19, it's the one on spirituality) - http://www.bringthefresh.com/3p.php

#1 Advertising - Depending on what niche you're in i think you might have a pretty good chance of making money by advertising. Try applying to buysellads.com and include the stats in your application.

#2 Newsletter Advertising - I remember being on the newsletter of someone in the music niche and he offered the option of advertising within the newsletter itself.

Found this one a bit unorthodox but pretty smart but i'd send out a survey before doing this. The last thing you want to do is burn your list ;)

#3 Guest Post - Although not directly attached to monetisation, sounds like you have an authority site bloomer.

I'd open up your blog to guest posts and network with bloggers at http://myblogguest.com/. It's a network i've used once or twice for guest blog links. Nice community and networking always opens up doors.

Top 3 off the top of my head and how i would go about monetising differently.

Hope that helped somewhat :)
