More Big Money Blogs

Darren Rowse, the six-figure blogger I linked to the other day, links to a post about other profitable bloggers:

And there are others, but those are the impressive ones. This is becoming an obsession for me. It’s just so hard to ignore folks making big money from blogging. I want to make big money from blogging. Heck, I’d settle for a little money. Just something to chip away at the college loans.

I think it’s also just encouraging to see that blogging doesn’t have to be the waste of time some people think it is. I know it’s not a waste of time, but for some people it requires a montary value to be worth any time at all. I think the big money bloggers are pretty rare at this point, but what’s not rare are the folks like me who have made a few connections through blogging, which have possibly led to a job or two. That’s justification right there, assuming my countless hours of joy and satisfaction aren’t enough for you.

But I still wouldn’t mind raking in $10,000 per month.

  1. Kevin,

    Thanks for the trackback. I believe those who are most determined will find a way to make good money off of blogging, from a combination of advertising, paid subscriptions, or reader donations. High-quality material that people really want to read or that meets a need of theirs has to have monetary value.

    Regards,

  2. I think Kevin is right. The blog content must be high-quality and unique. People must want to comeback, recommend the site, put up trackbacks and participate on the comment threads.

    And those bloggers who earn a substantial income has been blogging for years, so consistency is also an important aspect. I see quite a lot of dead blogs around, guess many people get bored after awhile.
