When someone asks you what you do for a living or as a hobby and you say that you have a blog, you get amazing reactions.

Your family and friends don't understand.

They don't understand why you spend all that time in front of the computer.

Especially if you have nothing to show for the hundreds of hours of work that you have been putting in.

Can you imagine being able able to say, "I am making $1,500 a month from my blog"?

I can't promise that would shut them up, but at least that would be an argument.

The very first blog was created in 1994.

It's difficult to tell how many blogs there are in the world, but they are in the hundreds of millions.

The total number of blogs on Tumblr, Squarespace, and WordPress alone equals over 440 million.

The total number of blogs in the world likely greatly exceeds this number.

According to WordPress, 76.3 million posts are published on WordPress each month, and more than 409 million people view 22.3 billion blog pages each month.

Can you make money with blogging?

Yes and no.

And it's difficult to tell what percentage of bloggers actually make money from blogging, because the maximum number of bloggers surveyed is only in the few thousand range.

The highest estimate I came across said 14% of bloggers make a full-time living, however in light of the 400 million blog count I doubt that this estimation would be correct.

Here is the latest survey, done by BlogTyrant, 350 bloggers. 69.4 percent of bloggers make zero income in a year, and 22.6 percent makes less than $10,000.

Blog Income

A blog doesn't make you money directly.

Meaning money won't start coming in just because you start a blog.

You make money by offering something of value that your audience wants and they give you money for that value.

A blog brings in the audience so you can introduce them to the value that you are offering.

Unfortunately there's no accurate statistical data on blog earnings.

Blogs With Fake Value

Have you seen 5 tip checklists that promise you 5-figure income but don’t deliver?

They're cheating you.

They just want your email address...

I am a member in several Facebook groups and this was a blog post that I recently came across:

Title: 7 Killer Strategies To Get 100,000 Extra Page Views Tomorrow…

and the post gives the following items, explaining them in a paragraph each:

  1. “Know who you are writing for.”
  2. “Create engaging blog titles”
  3. “Write useful and relevant content”
  4. “Optimize your content for search engines”
  5. “Share your blog link across your social media.”
  6. “Share your blog content in popular Facebook groups.”
  7. “Use Pinterest”

Obviously this is just too incomplete to even come close to the promise.

[Luke] I can’t believe it.[Yoda] That is why you fail. Blog Profits TroubleshooterBlogging Is Not Simple

Blogs are more complicated than that.

It takes a lot longer than 3 minutes to set up a blog, even though that's how log the installer takes and that's what some bloggers suggest.

It takes a lot longer than two days to get to 10k visitors.

Building up earnings is a marathon, not a sprint.

Blog earnings start well before affiliate links.

They start with you, your blog’s mechanics and layout.

They continue with your content, your lead magnet, your email series and your back-end offers.

Customer Life Cycle And Earnings

Customers have a life-cycle. It can even be seen in the keywords they search for.

Any other reasons why a blog not making money? Blog Earnings TroubleshooterAt the beginning they are not even aware of the problem.

Then they see the problem.

They start searching for a solution.

They evaluate different products.

The job you have in blogging is to help them through this cycle.

A blogger is not a salesman. He is a consultant, an advisor or helper.

You don't sell by selling. You sell by showing how to solve problems.

Thanks, interesting read. Been doing this 12 months almost but only 3 months been on Facebook and had more numbers. My website gets no payment. I am getting 3000 views a post now. Some more. But I think you need 50000 a month for advertisers to be interested in you. Oh well. My website has money and time saving travel tips to themeparks so whilst havent made money- Ive actually saved money from shared tips
