A reader asks:
I am interested in starting up an internet business and I’m looking to get an idea to how much a blogging website would make.
I would be grateful if you could let me know if you make enough from this site to support yourself and your family, or if your other business interests make the real money and this is just a hobby?
How much a blog makes will depend on the market that it targets, how much is invested in it, the skill of the writer or writers creating the content and the skill of the marketers promoting the content. So there’s no simple answer to your first question. I have however tried to answer it in a previous article: Does Blogging Make Money?
As for the second question, I don’t think answering that would be useful. You are not me, and your situation probably doesn’t match mine. So whether I answer yes or no, the answer is of little use to you. Instead I suggest you focus on your situation and how much you need to earn to support yourself/your family and then see if you think you can invest the money and time in creating a business to achieve your goals. You might well be able to do so blogging, but don’t kid yourself that it’s an easy route to riches.Email This Post
