This is a question that I get asked more than any other. I was brought up not to really talk about money and what you earn so I’m always hesitant to do so – but due to the large interest in the subject I’ve from time to time given some indication (it can be vague) of what kind of money blogging brings me.
Keep in mind that I have numerous blogs and these figures are not just for ProBlogger (in fact this blog is one of my smaller earners). I also use a variety of income streams including AdSense, Chitika, Text Link Ads and (to name just four of the main ones).
update: here are my top earning income streams from my blogging..
Here are a few of the more recent posts I’ve done on the topic:
– Earning a Six Figure Income from Blogging
– Look what Blogging Bought Me – the house that Google Bought
– Network Blogging vs Individual Blogging
– I’m a Six Figure Blogger
– Chitika eMiniMalls – How much do they Earn? – the day eMiniMalls became my number 1 earner!
I should clarify (as its a misconception that I often come across) that my earnings do NOT just come from this blog – rather I have 20 or so that I work on plus am now involved in various others through b5media which I am a co-director in.
I also earn my income via a number of courses including the Adsense program and especially Chitika’s MiniMalls.
I also always like to emphasise that blogging is NOT a get rich quick thing. To balance the links above (and before you run out and quit your job to become a Pro Blogger) I also STRONGLY recommend you take a look at some of the links and information that I mention in my ProBlogger Public Announcement Post.
