I have a blog online under a Creative Commons Attribution license. I would like to monetize it by offering monthly content database of the blog content for sale to developers at a low price of 1 USD. This will enable developers to build mobile and iPAD apps which have offline content.

Is this legal under the Creative Commons Attribution license?

You can sell any content created by you, regardless of the copyright license (as long as you have not sold or given the rights away).

Be aware that under a Creative Commons Attribution license, so can any one else. You might be looking for a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license.
