To be successful in blogging, you need three things:
2. Content. Good, original and useful content and this can happen if you have a passion for it.
Else you close shop within the second.

Making money from blogging now can be challenging as you need heavy traffic and publicity to compete with the early comers. not everyone can do this. but how about just buying a domain name for less than $10 and start making money from it within few days? it's called EXPIRED domain parking. all you have to do is to buy a domain name for the above amount, after that give it to a parking company. they will in turn scatter adverts on the said domain and it will look exactly like a website. yes and this is how you make money; whenever a visitor visits and click on an ad, you earn a commission. and you will be paid on the 7th of every new month.
the other way to make money from it again is to resell the domain when the right price comes. I sold my first domain for $550 at afternic with an investment of just $9. alright for more information visit this awareness thread @ www.Nairaland.com/3430037/buying-selling-domains-really-profitable

The only thing I can give you excellent on your blog is the content. They are original and rich.
But your blog design is so plain and bloggish. If you can give it some professional face up, it would be an added advantage
Also, Google prefer blog to be design in such a way that users can get as much information as possible without scrolling down too much. Your homepage posts are just too much and the "read more" should be after about (highest) 60 words or less.
I doubt if you are on Google first page (if you are, good) cos without good traffic, your passion may take a nosedive. (How is your SEO)
I created this news and information blog last two weeks and today it is ranked on Google first page for the search word "npower volunteer network". (for a post I created for people having difficulty on the npower portal)
Such keywords is what your blog should rank, to really solve people's problem (which is your passion)
