Friend: “So what do you do Marcin?”,
Me: “I am a blogger”
Friend: “how exactly can you make money blogging?”
Me: “Well, there is a short and long answer”
That would be a typical conversation I would have with friends that I have not seen for a while.
The short answer would be “people buy things from me”
The long answer is … pls sit comfortably, get yourself your favourite drink, pick a pen and paper and let’s start with some crashing statistics.
Did You Know?
81% never make $100 from blogging (blogging.org)
9% make enough to sustain their lifestyle on 4-6h a day blogging
8% earn enough money to be able to support family
2% spend 1-2h blogging a day and make $150K+ a year blogging from an exotic locations
My question to you is, what is the difference between the 2% group and 81%? Is it the skills?
The tools? The knowledge? The mindset?
Most likely it is the combination of all the above factors.
Bloggers in the 2% put less effort and they enjoy way bigger results. Let’s move to some knowledge. I am planning to do a series of videos and posts explaining the important strategies for how to make money blogging.
