Blogging for a living ?How much money can you make online?

Is this a reality?People actually earn that much from a blog?

I love learning and money management was the topic that interested me the most. I will show you the testimony of someone who loves this domain as well that is so powerfully important and potentially to change your life.

This financial samurai is the inspiration for me and , to quote his figures:

It took me 16 years to build a portfolio that generates over $200,000 a year in passive and semi-passive income. It took only four years to build the same income blogging.

The Financial O.G

I will go over the the things that make this a great choice :

A. Low financial barriers to start

Taking into account the location (logistics ) as well as WHAT you buy, in Real Estate you need 1 -2.000.000 $ to earn $50.000 in net operating income in San Francisco.

Regarding the stock market, by going the safe route (and that is by investing in S&P 500 index fund) , you need $ 1.000.000 to have on net operating income of $ 23.000

You can start a website with as low as €2.68/month to run a website and you get a domain name for free. If things don’t work out, all you’ve lost is your time and a minimal amount of money.

After clicking the link, you should see the Bluehost site (like the screenshot above).

On this page, you will also notice the special offer for a free domain name, free SSL certificate, 1-Click WordPress Installs and also 24/7 support.

Next, click on the big green button that says “Get Started Now“.

You will then be sent to a page where you can choose your hosting plan. (shown below)

There are three different hosting plans you can choose from. The ‘basic’ plan is more than enough for most site owners and bloggers to get started with, and the monthly cost is as low as $2.95 per month. If you’d like to create more than one website or blog in the future, the “Prime” plan is a better option.

After selecting your hosting package, you can then grab your free domain name. Simply type in a domain name you’d like to use and if it’s available, then click the “next” button. If your domain name in unavailable, keep coming up with new names until you find a good one that available.

If you already have a domain name with another provider like GoDaddy or Namecheap, you can use the “i have a domain name’ option instead.

you pay and then just install it:

You will then be sent to another page that confirms you are about to enter the WordPress installation process. Simply click “Continue installation” to start the process.

After clicking “Next”, you will then see a page like the one below. This page will take a minute or two to load, as WordPress is being installed on your site. You can simply wait for this process to complete, or browse through some of the WordPress themes and options offered on the page.

Once the WordPress installation process is complete, you will then be sent to the last page in this process — which will provide you with your WordPress login details.

That’s it! It’s really that easy to setup a hosting account, get a domain name and install WordPress — everything you need to go live with a blog of your own.

Best of all, the process shouldn’t take any longer than 10 minutes. Click here to get started if you haven’t already.

If you prefer WordPress, take a look at THIS ARTICLE!

Here are a few reasons why you will love using WordPress:

  • It’s 100% Free – Amazingly enough, one of the most powerful software solutions in the world today is 100% free! No gimmicks, no up-sells… just free.
  • Extremely Easy for Beginners – WordPress has become one of the most popular platforms in the world today not only because it’s free, but also because it’s so easy to use. Instead of requiring site owners to use custom designs or programming, there are thousands of free WordPress Themes and Plugins that you can use to customize all aspects of your blog.
  • Free Resources, Guides and Community Support – With WordPress being used by so many websites, you can pretty much find any resources, guides, tutorials or support that you need. In addition to the free sources found on the main WordPress site, you will also find endless resources on other blogging resources sites.
  • WordPress Looks Great on Mobile – With more people using their mobile devices to access the internet than ever before, it’s important to make sure your blog looks great on all devices as well. This is another area that WordPress has you taken care of. Create a blog in minutes and your site and content will look great on desktops, tablets, mobile devices and more.
  • WordPress is Huge! – WordPress has been downloaded over 100 million times and is the software of choice by millions of bloggers and many of the top blogs in the world today, such as TED, NBA Sports, CNN, and TechCrunch.

I think that this is one of the most important hobbies that we can have, but it can also can be a simple action that does not involve that much preparation, but you need to have quality content and be consistent.

2.The operating leverage

The operating costs are fixed when you own a website (domain register as well as hosting) and all the money the money over that minimum threshold is your money ,so few other alternatives can compare( What is even close to this,by the way?Tell me please in the comment section, I am really curious )

3.The potential reach

Right now we are 7 Billion, and by 2100 it is predicted to reach 12 billion. The main language is ,and will always remain,English.If your content is even mildly important will get a LOT of views, and when you OWN the source for that content, you will get paid without any money from you besides those regarding the domain and the hosting.As I said,the hosting can be as little as €2.68/month to run a website .

The sky is the limit,as the saying goes…

4.What about the other markets?

The technology will surely improve so that your content will be readily available in Mandarin or Hindu with a few clicks.Then Billions of people will be potential customers.

5.I am not an expert /the best in that field

I admit that initially thought that I need to be the best on thriving new domain ( like A.I or Machine Learning or other stuff like that) , on and only AFTER that I will get people interested .

That is not the case.There are different niche -s ,and you simply have to write about what you consider important.This will make you be a better writer,a better salesperson and will keep you going. The niche is just waiting for you.

Now that I’ve convinced you pro blogging is the best profession on Earth, perhaps you’re interested in knowing how much you can actually make? Before we get to the money, let me first highlight the types of people most suitable for succeeding as a professional blogger.

The People Most Suitable For Blogging

1.The creative writer

If you enjoy writing ,you will love blogging.Simple as that.

2.The person who is always searching for ways to improve and grow

I found out how limited my usual vocabulary is only when I started blogging.Sure, I time your abilities are diversely honed, yet this was a bit shocking for me. Just like this example,you will understand new and interesting details from your life by posting and interacting with other people interested in the same domain.

3.The person who enjoys connecting with like-minded people

On the same page, you can develop interesting and fruitful friendships by this online way of interaction.

4. People who always want the freedom to choose.

The element that amazes me the most in this technological advancement is that we will work REMOTE (from a different location) in a few years by default,and CHOOSE if we want to go to work.This would be a great source of income while you are travelling from France to Italy to see Venice,don’t you think?

Who will not succeed by blogging?

If you just do it for the money ,you will get bored,you will measure success just by money and your drive will simply be gone after a few days .So pick a niche and adjust in time ,as time goes by.

How Much Can You Make Blogging?

In general, you can make anywhere from 1-10 cents a pageview. In other words, if you have 100,000 pageviews a month, you can make $1,000 – $10,000 a month. The range is wide because your earnings depend on your audience demographic

Same samurai

By audience demographic he means niche.So just pick as good as you can,start a website and adjust in time.

I hope I convinced you to take your life in your hands and give your life a new dimension ,maybe one to a new reality.

Thinking about what you entered……..
You are in!
