People think it’s easy to blog and make money, but things have changed in the blogging scene. This six figure blogpost has needed an update for a while, and so I am updating it for 2018.
The best way to make money online is to follow the people who actually are doing it, unfortunately in the online world Google slaps a Google penalty if you literally do that by copying successful bloggers . The sad reality is that some are just floggin it , while some are really blogging.
You could follow the successful money makers and learn some stuff, but they will never really reveal the real money making secrets.
I have been blogging for the last 10 years. Writing a blog is no more about just writing a 400 word article and getting a lot of eyeballs to your article. It involves a lot more.
Yet even today they are many $5000 a month $10,000 a month bloggers and some top bloggers earning $20k plus a month.
Today the fashion and food bloggers niche has become popular and there has been an exponential rise in women bloggers too. The gadget and technology niche has always been a favourite niche for people to blog about and so is a very competitive niche too.
Follow the Top bloggers to become a money making blogger
But there are some that up to a certain extent reveal the blogging secrets, and the smart people with the keen eye can get the clues from their posts and blog to apply them techniques on their own blogs. Making money online is a hard game and I got some of my favourite bookmarked blogs that give me regular useful information about this methodology, that you might find useful too.
Some of the blogs that I follow, surely are some of the biggest money earners on the internet, but in relation to handing out any useful tips to making money, only a few of these blogs occasionally post anything useful when they are not flogging stuff to their viewers or subscribers.
So I have ranked and listed these blog’s below in order of importance to me – and for you.
Some of these unfortunately as John Chow states, have pretty much become “internet marketing whores” and they sometimes are blogs that “who flog, more than they blog” ( Yeh Yeh !! sure John Chow – look who’s talking)
