Can you really make money from blogging?
This is a question that we come across time and time again.
But the question is, do you need to be a successful blogger to earn money from your blog?
The answer is no.
You can be a successful blogger but you might not make a single die of your blog.
There are a lot of popular bloggers out there that has no sidebar ads.
They also have little to none guest post in their blogs but they are considered popular in their niche.

The first thing that you must know about making money from blogging is that it does not happen overnight.
You can’t expect to set up your blog today and see earnings coming into your bank account the next day.
Most people only start to make $10-$50 after a few months and reach 3 digit amounts after a year or more.
Perhaps after 2 years, you will be able to see income f more than $1000 per month.
So be patient.
Spend time on your content, engage with your audiences and develop a good relationship with them and you will see the income.
How much you invest VS. How you earn.
You must always make a comparison on the amount of money you want to make form your blog against the time that you are willing to invest in it.
In other words, you may have a job and work 40 hours a week but you can’t expect to do the same for your blog.
The amount of time you spent on your blog will be a lot less that the time you spend on your day job.
So, you can expect to yourself to earn the same income that you get from your job.
Say that you put 10-20 hours a week on your blog.
That will be the part-time job that you are working on which is your blog.
You need money to make more money.
In the world of online business, you need to use money to make money.
A lot of bloggers out there would re-invest the money that they earn into their blog in order to make it even more profitable.
You could participate in a sponsoring campaign or use it to hire people to work on your blog.
Not to mention marketing which also requires some money.
When you advertise, you will be able to expand your blog’s exposure and get hold more audiences.
Don’t stop experimenting.
When it comes to blogging, it would not hurt if you do a little bit of experiment and tresting out new stuff.
If you have not set up any sidebar, there is no harm trying it.
You can try putting Adsense into your blog.
And if it’s working for you, move on to the next new thing that you want to add to your blog.
There will surely be times when you come across something that does not work for you.
When this happen, fret not, just remove and forget about it.
But it would be a shame if you did not tried it at the first place right?
What if it works amazing for your blog?
You never know.
To conclude, you can definitely make money from your blog but it will require a lot of dedication, work and time.
If you have e patience and discipline to get things done, your blog will surely be able to generate you some income.
