Making money blogging is one of the hottest topics online – a unique, highly competitive keyword in its own way. The following article will discuss this particular topics. However, there are several facts to keep in mind; yes, people do make money blogging and no, it isn’t easy, quick or a ‘remote control’ system.
In terms of the money a blogger earns, there are several points here. First of all, remember that the money earnt is not a lot for everybody – high earning, full time bloggers are few and separate. A new blogger will have to slowly and surely build a blog for some time to earn an amount of revenue that can be substantial – many bloggers earn less that 30 cents a day. Blogging is like any other job – think of it as an investment in time and money. It may pay well or it may not pay at all. But it wont result in riches overnight and you may well find out, bitterly, that the pay is just like any other job out their.
Here are some statistics from a survey on this issue from amongst a number of bloggers; 7% reported earning over $15,000 a month, 57% report earning less than $100 a month and 30% reported earning less than 30 cents a day. In short, 93% of bloggers are not earning much whereas only a unique 7% is earning a good amount of money. As such, this is quite clear that blogging for money isn’t easy. It is in fact quite hard and extremely competitive – it is a ‘business’ in which you are competing against a large number of individuals. Additionally, it is a business in which you are literally at the whims of search engines and a discipline that requires knowledge and skill of something in everything – technology, SEO, writing, editing, proof reading, marketing, publicity, branding and design to mention but a few. And that does not even include the niche of your blog.
As such, one of the most important rules of blogging is to be ‘realistic’; dream – dreams are useful as a source of motivation and inspiration. But make sure that you realize reality around you and as such make sure that you’re expectations are as such. Follow a step by step procedure with a solid, stable strategy. Make sure that you have a rundown of blogging and the various skills surrounding it first – as in educating yourself – before starting blogging. Be hardworking and follow a methodical approach. Set tasks for yourself and research your niche before venturing into it. Make sure that the niche you are covering is a niche you are well versed in.
You should also remember that you should stick with your job alongwith blogging - this is a useful guarantee in case things go south. Don’t just leave your job and then start blogging particularly if you have a family to support. After you are successful in blogging and find that the revenue you are earning is more than substantial, you can leave your day job.
Additionally, have a long term plan and be patient – blogs take years to establish themselves as the ‘it’ in their niches. Furthermore, you should understand that revenue does not rely solely on the number of visitors – it depends on a number of factors.
In short, you can make money blogging and people do make money blogging but what is different is the amount of money made – only a tiny percentage of bloggers earn tons of money.
