Can I earn a lot of money by blogging?

I love blogging. I've been doing it for the past 11 years by now, and I must admit, it's taken quite a few years before my blog became profitable. Here's a post from a reader about some things to consider if you've thought about starting a blog.

You must have been living under a rock if you haven’t seen the massive rise in popularity of blogs over the last decade. There are blogs for absolutely everything, from sports to news and everything in between. Thanks to the innovations we have seen on the internet recently, it has become extremely easy to create your own blog. Simply google “Create a blog”, follow the steps and voila, you have your own blog. It can be done within 5 minutes. Then all you have to do is write an article, check it hasn’t been written already by running it through an online plagiarism tool like the one found here and post it.

Those who gain a good following and are skilled with a computer can turn blogs into passive income streams. With advertisements, affiliate links, promotional content and product selling pages, the ways you can earn money from your blog are endless.

Still skeptical?

Let me show you the top-earning blog in the world.

The Huffington Post

The Huffington Post, which was created way back in 2005, is a blog that covers pretty much every article topic on the planet. It is the biggest blog in the world and creates a massive amount of income for its owner Ariana Huffington through a mix of advertisements and sponsored content.
The website has the same domain authority as Google itself! It earns Ariana just over $41 million dollars… a month! The entire blog is estimated to be worth around $1.2 billion dollars. Still skeptical?

How do I earn that much?

Unfortunately, building a blog that earns consistent money takes time and, eventually, a re-investment of funds. So, unless you are unbelievably lucky, I don’t think any of us will ever overtake the Huffington Post.

You can, however, earn a serious income from blogging online. If you have the motivation and the drive to post great content regularly, you would be surprised how fast your blog might become very profitable.

Tips and tricks for being successful

Here are some great tips and tricks to give you the best possible chance of starting a successful blogging career.

  • Look at other people’s successful blogs – The first thing you should do is to look at other successful blogs that are doing well, especially ones similar to the topic you want yours to be about.
  • Figure out your #1 interests and passions – The easiest way to stay committed and motivated to your blog is to talk and write about things that you are genuinely passionate about. If you love what you are writing about, it is a lot easier to consistently write posts.
  • Get your social media on point – in this new age, social media is quickly becoming one of the best ways to self-promote. Create an account on every social media platform for your blog, try to get your readers to engage and connect on them.

Hopefully, after reading this, I have inspired you to make that first step. If I have, I wish you the best of luck!
