Does Blogging pays the bills?

    In times where blogs like upworthy.com or sourcePEP/80-20-blog who are basically content curators and not content creators are exceedingly getting popular- is it worth writing blogs of our own? Can Blogging be a sustainable source of income?

    I have a friend who essentially blogs for a living, so yes, it is possible. However it requires having a very niche audience and spending a lot of time to make your blog appealing and good. It will take a lot of effort establishing a reputation for good content and good writing.
    So basically, it is possible, but it takes a LOT of work.

    Blogging, the real blogger business takes time and some spedings for a domain and hosting, some cool theme too but is optional. In case you're looking for quick money, sorry to disappoint you but blogging takes time, a lot if you do it wrong way, in fact you could earn almost nothing if you don't have a great guide or in case you are smart enough to learn from the best bloggers by simply reading them.

    In short, yep.

    I used to blog, but now I lack the time. The key is to find a good niche and write what most appeals to the target audience; a good niche being one where your readers are willing to part with money - people wanting to make money, people wanting to quit smoking, and so forth - and one not too saturated to make barriers to entry insurmountable. You then have to work at it and play the waiting game. It takes a while to get the money ball rolling, but when you do, the profits are relatively stable and long-lasting, even when you take a blogging vacation.

    Trouble is, while I enjoy writing, the money-potential of blogging is just not enough for me; not when I consider the time and effort involved. There are better ways to earn.

    No. Not blogging alone. Monetization of structure is where the money is. I make more money from people asking me to write for them, than I do on my own 11+ blogs.

    Yes, you can definitely earn a substantial income from a Blog.

    But there are a lot key factors to becoming a successful blogger.

    Learn how to solve people's problem with your content.

    Be yourself when explaining things through your words.

    Learn how to monetize your entire Blog Site.

    Learn how to Capture Leads and grow a Subscribers Base (blogs readers)

    Learn how to build relationships with your Email list and always offer more value than affiliate products.

    Let people ask you to buy from you instead of bombarding them with offers.

    Become a good example to others in your niche and never be afraid of sharing every single success you get online.

    These are some of the most important things to consider when building a successful, money making blog online.

    It is all about how much value you give out and how many people SEE that value. Focus on the Value and the Marketing/Promotion of that Value and the money will come naturally.

    Hope this helps! :cool:

    Wish you the best success in your journey online!

    Freelancing + Blogging = Yes
    If you have really huge audience at your blog then ofcourse. Man basically public make you king. If you public like you, you got public on your blog/website then you are rich. That's how it works
