Earning money blogging, is it really possible? The short answer is yes but there is a lot involved in turning a blog into a cash machine. There are bloggers earning anywhere from $1 – $100 000 a month. They all have one thing in common, they all started with earning their first $. If you are new to blogging and don’t really know where to start, we can help. I remember the day we decided to start a blog. It was overwhelming, we didn’t know how WordPress worked, we didn’t know what hosting was and we were clueless about blog templates. Don’t get me started on plugins. We knew nothing! The point is we all started at the bottom. Don’t be afraid to start your blogging journey. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
Earning Money Blogging, Are You Dedicated?
This is a self-evaluation question and one you should consider seriously. it takes a lot of time and effort to set up a good blog that adds value to peoples lives. Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. it takes hard work. If you run out of steam in the first few months you will not succeed. You need to approach your blog like a business. You cannot give up on it even when the going get’s tough. Believe me, when I say this, you will want to give up at some point. We did, we often wanted to quit because it was hard and we didn’t see results but we kept going and I’m so glad we did. It’s important to be consistent in your output to keep your audience. You need a good work schedule along with a strategy you can do and stick to.
Earning Money Blogging, Do You Have a Niche
What is a Niche? it is a subject you specialize and focus on. So for example, if you decide your blog is about travel your niche could be budget travel in South East Asia. People will get to know that you are the go-to blog with budget travel tips, ideas, and knowledge on that subject. If they plan a budget trip to South East Asia they would come to your blog for information. That is how you build a readership. Choosing a niche can take time. New bloggers often make the mistake of making their niche too broad. You must like your niche and be knowledgeable about it. If you like a subject but don’t know much about it you can always learn about it.

Earning money blogging can be very rewarding. It’s a business you can enjoy and control. If you decide to earn money blogging then approach your blog like a business and not a hobby. You will be more successful. Believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Best wishes on your journey!
