    I have been pouring over this website for a few days and it seems like everyone is trying to sell a get rich ebook. Are any of you making a living through blogging on content alone and not some get rich scheme?

    I blog for a living. There are a few of ways you can make a living being a blogger, but it depends on the niche you blog. I am an all-out blogger, meaning I blog about everything in general such as news, technology, science, celebrity, reviews, business, politics and many more so it's easier to make money that way rather than just one niche/subject.

    Through my blog I make money by advertisements and affiliates. Affiliates is great for if you are making a review of something because when you are making a review on something like a Iphone then you put affiliate link for your readers to buy Iphone after reading your review. I would recommend Amazon Affiliate program as Amazon Affiliate program is best for products affiliating where Amazon have all of the products you can think of and make a commission from it.

    Another best thing about blogging is that you have several people subscribe by e-mail where you will get their e-mail addresses for mailing list to do affiliate by sending out e-mail with affiliate.

    So there are several ways to monetize by blogging but these are few of my methods to make a living through blogging.

    I owns blogs but managing the comment spam on them is a task taking time and now all comments are sent to 1 other person for review and very few of them are of value for blog.

    @Soulwatcher , once you got enough content on blog you can create an ebook out of it.

    Are you really making a living from JoshiesWorld.com? Not that it doesn't necessarily look like an income-flowing website, but I'm intrigued to know how successful is that for you. Nice donation page as well - the readers should know that you're paying thousands of dollars on servers every month and contribute somehow.

    JoshiesWorld isn't the only one though, keep that in mind I resell hosting privately so that's one of the income. At most I gave few of the people free unlimited hosting, because I guess my heart is too soft and I usually couldn't make myself to ask the clients to pay me for the host or such, so in a way the donation helps me to cover some of the people's hosting off the servers.

    But JoshiesWorld does bring in good enough, almost three dollars per click through ads. Adsense take the most part of it, along with a bit of donation. Everyone knows me in the local (many family and friends visits them helps it, although most of they don't know I make money through adsense and some I warned not to click it because I am easily scared of being banned from Google Adsense since I am getting a good paycheck monthly).

    Another one is the affiliate. That's probably one of the most reason that makes it successful aside Adsense, considering that I write some of reviews and some things if I recommend something then I use the affiliate links and that lures them in to use them.

    So Adsense, Affiliates and donation (very small but it counts it) in the mix makes it a bit successful, but not to a point where I could easily afford to live in a mansion or something, just enough of paycheck to afford bills and the college students loan.

    I am just about to start working on my first blog. Even though I have a fairly decent idea of what I am getting into, I need all the inspiration that I can get. Content creation is what's sustaining me at this moment though! :p

    I have been working as an internet marketer for many years and have always had lots of mini sites and managed websites for clients. At the beginning of the year we have decided to take our blog full time and while we build up our income we will carry on with a few select private clients. Blogging certainly is a great way to build an income.

    We have also put more effort into content and have taken it from 18,000 page loads in January to 50,000 so far in June (as of 23rd) so content does work and it works well. It also has a lot of SEO positions and we plan to grow it further. The only marketing its had (because we are so busy) is social media and social bookmarking so it does show the results you can get from content.

    Blogs are not the best money makers. Less than 1% of bloggers can make living through blogging, the rest is pure false claims. Though most of these 1% is making a huge investment to be able to make living. It is much easier to make money though ecommerce website, dropshipping, selling on ebay, providing services, etc...

    Well I doubled my ad network income by adding a skycraper for Yahoo's CPM service - I would give them a go as well to mix it up a bit.

    I gotta be honest with you. I've never been able to make a living with blogging. Have make a little extra money but never even enough to be able to renew hosting the next year. Got a free blog now and haven't made anything. So yea, i think it is possible to make some money with blogging. A career? Probably not unless u got something very very compelling and original.

    Well it doesn't mean you wont.

    I spent years as an internet marketer and decided that I would rather be a full time blogger so I am working on making that happen at the moment and my target is to be full time by Christmas. To be full time I will need to earn $5000 a month to live as comfortably as I do now.

    First month I did $185 and did over $600 last month. So it can happen. Just think if you can make $20 you can make $200 and then if you can do that you can make $2000 and so on.

    Here are my income reports if you want some ideas of how to do it:

    And good luck :)
