Blog Earning Pie Charts

Conclusion:

On total answers (3054), 65% are making nothing or under $100 per month. (28% nothing, 37% under $100)
35% are making more than 100$ per month, on these 9% are making more than $15 000 per month (huge)

So is a blog a good way for making money ?

YES if you are a High-Traffic weblog or a Top Blogger.
NO if you spend a lot of time blogging and you make less than 100$ per month.

You can earn more money by setting up a classic website and not spending as many hours as you would on a blog…

Do your maths.

Personally I love Blogging, it’s a Lifestyle.

Adnan is leaving the Blogosphere after his “experiment to see whether the internet was an avenue forward in terms of making money online, and forming new friendships, gathering a loyal crowd of readers and using technology for progress”.

“Whilst this is not the time for a full explanation (which will come in the next few days), it is with great regret and sorrow that I announce that I’m leaving the blogosphere, and have decided to put Blogtrepreneur.com – my flagship blog – up for sale.”

Good Luck Man.

Now it’s probably a good way to get paid for your photos when I see the number of visits I get from Google on my pics.

We’ll see in the future how Phototrade perform.

The negative aspect is that we are getting dependant from this kind of service as a free webhosting. What will happen if they close ??
