But these lucky rich bloggers are decidedly the exception, not the rule.
According to an article in the Daily News (3/30/09, p. 35), the median income of bloggers who seek to monetize their blogs is $200 a year.
As a rule, you can make serious money blogging only if you have a lot of subscribers to your blog via RSS feed.
The article notes that for bloggers who have 100,000 subscribers or more, the median income soars to $75,000 a year — pretty darn good for an activity you do only a few hours a week.
Of course, the really smart thing is to get other people to write your blog for you, pay them nothing, and get rich on the advertising,
An article in Time noted that Huffington Post has 3,000 unpaid bloggers — and that the site, filled with content created largely by those bloggers and other sources Huffington does not pay, is worth a staggering $90 million.
Obviously I am doing something wrong.
Anybody out there making a LOT of money from your blog?
