Who would say no to money? Everyone needs it. On my first attempt to blogging last year, I wanted to make some serious money and gave up blogging after only 3 months without making any money. Now, I’m on 6th month of consistent blogging and I learned a lot compared to my first attempt.
Money can be a good motivation to blogging but if your goal is merely to make money from blogging then you won’t make go far. Blogging needs deep interest and never expecting. Personally, I’m a comeback blogger too. I gave up and return back. This time I won’t leave blogging as I’m more addicted to it than ever before.
Here is a good example of those who don’t make any money from blogging. It is none other than the famous Monkey Fables who gets an average of 700+ visits each day for his blog and still not monetizing it. With that kind of traffic, he can be closer to Pro Blogger, Darren’s or John Chow traffic range.
If you don’t want to make any money from blogging, then you don’t have to worry about visit counts, SEO, attracting advertisers or sit like owl to grab paid post opportunities. If you want to make some money from blogging, then it is time for you to do some homework on all the above matters. A real blogger who wants to make money must be good in SEO, must know how to increase those rankings, and need to diversify ways on attracting more visitor mainly targeted visitors.
So, who said blogging for money is easy? Things can get real tough if your goal is to make money from blogging. All we need is the fire to never ever give up.
Now tell me again, are you blogging for fun or money?
