I’ve done a lot of posts on blogging for money. I even have a page devoted to it. Yeah, I know, I’ve still to work past step six but I’ll get there. I’m not one to lie to my readers so I’m not going to tell you that my blogging for money earnings is enough to allow me to quit my job. If only that was true.
As far as my blogging for money attempt is going check out the image below.
Blogging For Money Proof
You will notice that although my earnings are up for this year I actually made less because of my expenses. You’ll also notice that has dropped by more than half. This is because traffic for this blog has dropped a fair bit ever since I stopped commenting on other blogs. This has caused my Alexa ranking to drop and my advertising earnings dropped with it.
You’ll also notice that my earnings have grown and that is mainly to do with my two lottery sites, Buy Online Lotto Tickets and Get Online Lottery. The earnings from these twos sites will continue to grow and I’m hoping it will be enough to retire comfortably on. If you’re interested in getting your hands on some of this cash you should read my Lotto Affiliate post.
You’ll also notice that my hosting and domain costs have gone up. To increase my profits I’ve decided to get rid of one of my hosts and to sell some of my domains. The first one to go is my load of bullshit which I wrote in my Selling Your Domain post. Offloading these ‘dead’ sites will give me more time to concentrate on building my more profitable blogs.
You’ll also notice that I’ve spent more money on software. But that’s a business expense and I have no problem with that. In fact, most of that is video production related and I’m hoping to use that to increase my youtube earnings.
Online Stores Blogging For Money
Apart from my lottery sites and my EZ e Sports Betting site I’m also going to focus on my online stores. Especially my Gifts Guru Gift Store. Luckily I can use my other blogs to help push traffic and SEO points to that site. My post on affordable wedding dresses is designed specifically to promote the beautiful wedding dresses I’m promoting.
I’ve also started commenting, and will continue to do so to garner as much link juice as possible. Naturally I will following my own commenting guidelines to make sure not only that those comments are accepted but to show others I’m a blogger to be reckoned with.
