Blogging For Money Revisited


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 :wink_ee: 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. :wink_ee:

How Much Money I Made Online


I did a post not so long ago about how some blogging for money isn’t as easy as some folk out there made it out to be. I thought I would follow that post with this one, a post that is going to show you exactly how much money I made online in 2014 / 2015.

It’s not going to be a long post. I’m just going to break down my blogging for money earnings into their respective categories.

How Much Money I Made Blogging In 2014 / 2015

Advertising: $470 This includes money I’ve earned some of that from my OIOPublisher ad space in the top right sidebar. OIOPublisher makes accepting ads from clients as easy as pie, completely automating the process. The rest I got from doing paid posts on my blogs.

Affiliate Payments: $3901.59 Apart from a couple of sales from promoting FlexSqueeze2 the bulk of that money has come from my lottery sites. You can find the affiliates I use to make all this cash here.

Other Income: $28.08 This was from people paying me to remove links leading to their website.

All in all I made a total of $4399.73! Not a huge amount but it is steadily growing. Also my Sport Betting site hasn’t kicked in yet and I have high hopes for that site. That and the fact that every time someone signs up under me as a Lottery customer they become my customer for life. This means every time they buy a lottery ticket online I get paid my commission.

Just a quick note, these earnings do not include any monies that have not reached payment levels, a little over $1000. That’s cool though because They’ll all be added to my 2015 / 2016 earnings.

Any money that I earn online is payed into either of three accounts.

  1. Neteller
  2. PayPal
  3. Skrill

Of those my favourite is Neteller because they offer a free MasterCard which I can use online and in the real world as well.

The Truth About Blogging For Money


take your job and shove it

Created with the Logo Creator

How many times have you come across a blog that promised to show you how to make money blogging? Quite a few times I bet! How many of them have actually shown you how to make money online? Not all that many, right? The honest truth about blogging for money is a lot of the bloggers out there spouting about how much money they’re making from their blogs are probably exaggerating a little. Some are exaggerating a hell of a lot! They see this as a necessary evil because of their need for building their brand.

I’ve been blogging for 10 years now and while I’m making some money online it’s nowhere near enough for me to tell my boss to shove his job up his arse.

So, read on as I reveal the truth about Blogging For Money.

Honest Truth About Blogging For Money

Truth About Blogging For Money

The question is, can you handle the truth about blogging for money? I say this because the honest to goodness, non refutable, truth about blogging for money is that it’s not easy. In fact it’s bloody hard. That’s why so many people give up.

You sure as hell can’t just start up a blog, do a whole lot of posts with affiliate links in them and then sit back waiting for the money to roll in.

I written before how blog commenting on other blogs can bring you traffic. The trouble is that type of traffic is next to useless. Why? Because that’s not the sort of traffic that generates an income. The one good thing about leaving great informative comments on blogs is that it helps to build your personal brand. People will get to see you around the place and in time get to trust you. The problem is, these are not the people who will normally buy from you. That is unless those blogs are all related to your niche blog. Then you have more of a chance of generating an income.

Quick Word About A List

They say that the money is in the list. They’re probably right. I used to have a list but just couldn’t bring myself to spam my subscribers. I no longer have a list.

Traffic Is Key To Making Money

The one truth about blogging for money is you need a shit load of traffic. Not just any traffic either. You need targeted traffic. That means the traffic you’re aiming for has to be related to your blogs subject matter. Failing to do that means you’re just writing to the wrong crowd. Whatever traffic you get is a total waste because you haven’t got anything that will interest them. Sort of like a shopfront having huge signs advertising the latest LCD TV’s only to find all they have are ironing boards!

The problem is you need a huge amount traffic to make it worthwhile. I’m getting about 3000 a month on my Online Sports Betting Site. Unfortunately that’s nowhere near enough. I reckon I would need at least 100 times that amount to get things to tick over. I can’t see that happening unless some big shot notices it and then brings it to the attention of his mates. Can’t see that happening anytime soon.

Promoting The Right Affiliate Is Important

Like most bloggers trying to make money online I don’t have a product to sell, That means I’m limited to promoting other peoples products as an affiliate. The problem with that is that sales are few and far between.

That was when I decided to become a lottery affiliate and started to promote them on my lottery sites, Buy Online Lottery Tickets and Get Online Lottery Tickets. The main difference is that every time I signup someone they become my customer for life. Every time they buy a ticket I get my commission from the sale. You’ll find a list of the Lottery Affiliates I represent here.

Once I got those off the ground I decided to start my EZeSportsBetting site to see if I could repeat the process. This post lists some of the sites I represent as an affiliate.

It’s a slow process but I take comfort in the knowledge that every time someone signs up I’m building my customer base.

My Blogging For Money Tip

I only wish that I had started promoting these sites right at the beginning. Had I done so I would be in a much better position today. My blogging for money tip to you is to pick a niche that you are comfortable with, One that you know a lot about. This is important because you will need to do regular updates if you expect the search engines to send you traffic. Also having that knowledge will show people you know what you’re talking about which in turn will build confidence. Confidence that will in turn lead to sales.

Just remember blogging for money will not happen overnight!
