- Instapundit earns $8,000-10,000 per month.
- Andrew Sullivan raised $80,000 in one week (though that was an isolated incident)
- Markos Moulitsas Zuniga made more than $100,000 on his site in 2004.
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.
