So you are here to know what is blogging and how to make money from it?
Do you know who is Patt FLYNN? Just have a look at his website smartpassiveincome.com. Did you ever heard about Harsh Agarwal? Also check out his famous website shoutmeloud.com.
Why I have mentioned about them? Who are they?
They are 2 famous bloggers, among thousands. I could add more people like Darren Rowse @ problogger.net, Amit Agarwal @ labnol.org. Amit is India’s first tech blogger.
Why I have started with them, when the heading says What is blogging all about?
The reason behind this is, it is always better to show examples of what other people are doing to understand the question, rather than lecturing here.
Let me simply my words in a detailed way.
Pat Flynn is one of the most popular bloggers in the world and the creator of a top-ranking business podcast in iTunes. This problogger income report shows that he makes monthly more than $15,000 from that website.
If you are still thinking how much do pro bloggers make, then you must read Harsh’s income report. Harsh Agarwal is a very popular upcoming blogger in India, who is living life by teaching people how to blog for money.
Darren rose is the man behind probloggers.net, who is known to every single blogger in this world. He is making huge money from his blog and also helping many people to make money by providing them various types of jobs & services.
Amit Agarwal is the first technology blogger in India. He is also termed as the Father of Indian Blogging.
These people are not born as bloggers or with some great skills. But their way of blogging make them popular & famous. In simple words whatever they are doing with their websites is called BLOGGING.
What is Blogging for Money?
Now it’s the time for some lecture 😛
Blogging is like sharing whatever you are learning in daily life. When we talk about blogging, this means one need a website for that. E.g. let’s say you are good at cooking and want to share your recipes to the world. For that you can create a website and write your recipes over there.
But how this website will make money? That is the million dollar question.
To know the answer of this question I think you should know that there are various methods from which one can make money if he/she has a website. The basic formula is to display some sponsored advertise or by promoting some products.
E.g. if you take Harsh Agarwal’s website, you can easily find that he is actually providing free training on blogging and WordPress via his blog. At the same time he is sharing various product reviews and also recommending many products. And people are buying them as it is coming from an authentic person.
How much money can you make from blogging?
I will not talk about much on that, rather request you to visit the income report section of these 2 blogs.
How come they are earning even more than the salary of an IT manager?
Now, that is the question the world wants to know. Do you thing they are magicians or have some formula to make this much amount? Do you think they are really knowing something which no one knows?
Actually, whatever they know from their experiences, they are sharing every topic from their heart honestly. So that as a beginner we can avoid the most common blogging mistakes.
They are helping people to learn blogging, so that I & you can become a pro blogger in future. And their honesty is paying them via their blogs.
How difficult is it to make a website like them?
I will ask one more question regarding that. How difficult it is to reach the pick of the Everest?
Many people will say that it is too tough. But I will say it is not. If you have huge money, you can buy a flight and reach there easily.
But do you think anyone will really appreciate your effort here? Anyone will try to follow your path? How many people have such money to follow you?
So what is the other way left in that case, as many people are reaching Everest every year?
The answer is very simple, you have to know the facts, skills and need proper knowledge how people are actually making that possible. May be you have to spend some money for training related to mountain climbing. Then spend quite a sometime to know the people who actually make that happen & plan to do that in coming years.
I will say that blogging is exactly similar to climbing the mountain. Only you just need to gain some skills & dedication for blogging.
- You have to acquire some skills like reading & writing.
- Also you need to upgrade your technical skills like WordPres, SEO etc.
- Try to follow what famous bloggers are doing and how they are able to convince people.
- You have to put enough time to find what your expertise area is.
- You might have to spend some money if you are serious about making money from blogging. Here you might like to read how much money is enough to start a blog.
What is next in Blogging?
So, if I could convince you what is blogging, how amazing blogging platform is and how much money people are making from blogging, then I think you can continue reading further articles in this blog to start the journey. Just a small reminder, the examples I have shared are the bloggers who have tested success after putitng huge effort of many years. If you ask me, how much time I am in blogging, I will say that since last 5 year (and it is part time). But as of now I am not earning a huge amount from this blogging world. Still learning many things from the famous bloggers out there.
But that doesn’t mean that I will be in this place after another 5 year also. Same ruls is applied in your case. If you are ready to take the challenge and put 100% continuous effort without bothering about time and other peopl’s progress, then you are on the right path.
I hope you are now clear on what is blogging all about. So, just start blogging for money by creating a website first.
