5 Ways to Make Money Blogging
If you ever wondered exactly how to make money blogging, then you're at the right spot. Blogging can be a fun hobby to express yourself online. That is exactly how I began my journey. Then I did my research and found out how to make money blogging, AND that it's not just for the pros. My life changed!
DO BLOGGERS REALLY MAKE MONEY?
The answer is YES. And if you treat your blog like a business, it's a hell yes!
HOW DO BLOGGERS MAKE MONEY?
The short answer is through income streams. Successful bloggers use their blogs as a home base and then build up their income streams from there.
HOW MUCH DO BLOGGERS MAKE?
As a blogger, you can make "side hustle" money or full-time career pay-my-mortgage kind of money. It varies. I haven't stepped into that level yet, but I'm working hard at it! It's common within your first year of blogging to make an extra $300 - $1,500 per month. And then year 2 - 5, you can significantly increase your blog revenue towards the $60,000 a year mark. The 6 figure blogger is very common and obtainable.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Making money overnight blogging is just not going to happen. Throwing up ads and affiliate links will not magically start bringing money into your bank account. Purposeful, strategic blogging will take you 7-9 months to build up those income streams.
WHAT ARE THE WAYS BLOGGERS MAKE MONEY?
There are many ways bloggers can make money. My advice is to try a few and give your efforts time to see results. Decide if they make sense with your blog's purpose and if they genuinely serve your readers. This combination creates a thriving beast of a blog and can maintain healthy streams of income for years.
