Are You Blogging For Dollars?

Mark at 45n5.com has posted an interesting article about bloggers who are making more than $25,000 per year from their blogs: Blogging for dollars. I’m sure I’ve asked this question before, but wonder how many of you are blogging just for money.

I know a lot of bloggers will answer that they would do it for free or that it’s a a labor of love, etc. I don’t have any problem with this idea at all. Honestly, much of my blogging has been more of a cathartic, networking experience rather than an outright attempt to make money.

Yes, I make a few bucks from this blog, but not nearly enough to live off of. With that said, though, how many of you are making any kind of money from blogging? Maybe I should start another survey to find out. I think there are probably many bloggers out there who are making some money from their blog even if it isn’t doing away with the need for the day job.

In his article, Mark speculates that there are probably more people who have won more than $25,000 from lotteries than there are making more than $25,000 per year from blogging. I wonder if this is true. Anyone care to admit to being a part of this elite crowd?

  1. I think it needs a lot of work and takes time to make money from blogging. Most people don’t have the patience. Usually because they’re not passionate enough about blogging and talking about their passion through blog.

    For my experience, I only make a few bucks from Adsense. This is mostly because I didn’t know what I wanted to focus and what I wanted to talk about on my blog.

    So, I believe you must be focus, passionate, patience and persistence in order to make money from blogging.

  2. I have a number of different blogs and each serves a purpose .. kind of. My main blog is more about spreading awareness and helping others in a similar position, though it is rather popular for this type of blog I doubt it will ever make much money. I have started other blogs with the intent of making money but what I have come to realize this is a lot easier said then done. A major goal would be to make enough to live off of but I am no where near that milestone.
