But before anything, I think you should know more about what blogging is (so take your time and read).

Blogging as a topic


Blogging to me is a hobby.

Blogging simply means (in a lazy man definition):

How can I start blogging?

Now, I have known more about blogging, how do I start doing it?

Starting a blog is simple, though you may need to spend money (it can be little or high depending on blogging platform).

But to start blogging, you will have to be determined, because for some while you won’t make money because of low traffic.

That’s a normal thing, every blog that you see making billions now faced same things.

There are strategies to get traffic to your website even if your blog is a day old (paid).

You gotta follow these steps to start blogging:

  1. Choose and buy a domain name.
  2. Choose a blogging platform.
  3. Create and Design your blog.
  4. Publish your contents.
  5. Grow your blog (sharing contents to get traffic).

My friend also has explained more on how to start blogging in his content.

So you’ve known major things about blogging now?

You’re now a blogger since you have known what blogging means and its component (just kidding LOL, but blogging is interesting, I will be so glad if you can join blogosphere).

Now, let’s discuss on how much you can make from blogging.

How Much Money Can I Make from Blogging?

Actually, you can make unlimited money from blogging.

Okay agreed, where is my proof?

Here is a typical example of a blogger who makes millions of money from blogging every month:

Matthew Woodard, Founder of matthewwoodward, makes more than 1million dollars even month.

matthewwoodward's income for 2017
matthewwoodward’s income for 2017

You can check from the income report page.

What you should believe is that the money he made this month will be more than that of last month, you can check the screenshot I made the other time.

The reason why the profit will increase is that your blog grows every day (especially if your traffic is from search engines, your rankings will be improving).

There are also lot more bloggers who make more than this every month also, so you can also be one.

It’s the matter of time, patience and hard work.

Simply because it takes much time before your blog grow.

Search Engine is the best way to get traffic, but it takes time before you rank there, they don’t usually rank new website (because they don’t trust them), they rank those website that they trust (which has been in existence for years.

It took those popular website years before they can achieve those things, most of them have been in existences for more than 5 years, they made nothing for some years.

But your blog is just a year old so you don’t need to rush.

So the answer to how much can I make from blogging is that it is unlimited.

The amount is unpredictable, it is depending on how you monetize your website and also the actual amount of traffic your website is getting.

So the two things that will depend on how much you will make from blogging is:

  1. Traffic.
  2. Blog Monetization.

The next question you will want to ask is how do I get more traffic and how do I monetize my blog?

The two question is another topic on its own but I will summarize it so that you can understand better without reading many things.

How do I get traffic to my blog?


Road traffic?

No, I don’t mean that.

I mean this:

Traffic is the headcount of people who is visiting your website.

Traffic is divided into two:

  • Organic traffic: This is known as the traffic from the search engines. This is the traffic that you should have on your blog, they convert very well if you’re using google adsense and will drive tons of traffic to your blog.
  • Inorganic traffic: This is the traffic from a direct visit. Maybe someone heard about your blog and want to just check it out.

How do I get traffic to my blog?

There are many ways to get traffic to your blog, but I will tell you the major ones that will drive much traffic to your blog.

They are:

  1. Share the content on Social Media Platforms, Forums and Communities.
  2. Do Search Engine Optimization.
  3. Blog Outreach: Tell your blogger friends about your new content so they can link from their blog also.
  4. Participate on Quora: You can answer questions related to your blog topic on and give your blog link as the source.
  5. Publish new content oftenly.

How do I monetize my blog?

Blog monetization?

What does that mean?

Blog monetization in a simple sentence means to make money from with your blog. There are many blog monetization.

Monetizing a blog is another thing entirely as have said, you can think of a way to monetize your blog or you use the existing ones.

My point is that sometimes what A uses to monetize his blog may not be suitable for B. For example, on my blog, I can write eBook and sell to make money, but for a blog like a new blog, selling of eBook isn’t suitable.

So you can think of better ways to monetize your blog.

Here are some general methods to monetize your blog (they work for all blogs):

  1. Google Adsense: This is an advertising network by Google. You will get paid by clicks (the more people click the more you earn). The Cost Per Click varies on the country. Here is the guide on how to apply for Google Adsense.
  2. Paid Advertisement: You can paste banners of other people’s product on your blog and tell them to pay you.
  3. Sponsored posts: you can agree to publish other people’s content on your blog after they pay some amounts.

I hope that’s helpful?


Now, this is the end of the content.

Do you know how much a blogger can make now?

Have told you, it is unlimited.

It depends on monetization and traffic.

Even if you have a good monetization with less traffic, you can make money than those having millions of traffic.

A typical example is between a tutorial blog and a new blog.

A tutorial blog can write eBook and sell at $30 per each WHILE a new blog that uses adsense gets $2 per click. So if the tutorial blog is having only 200 traffic per day, at least he will make $300, so if the new blog gets 700 traffic, he can’t make much money compared to tutorial’s blog because not everybody that comes to the website will click on ads and also the country is different.

I hope you really understand how things work now?

I will be glad if you share this with others also.

Happy Blogging!
