Ad networks are a great way to earn a passive income with your blog. Once you have the networks set up and the ads added to your blog your work is pretty well done. When you get to the point that you are generating more traffic than the networks can fill it may be time to checking getting Google DFP set up. Google DFP allows you to rotate ad networks based on fill and rates.
Sovrn offers great rates for ads on your sidebar and header.
Media.net offers sidebar and header ads for blogs.
Google Adsense is really easy to set up. Once you are with the program it is worth checking into having Google DFP set up to maximize your earnings
