Are you one of those people who think that blogging will allow you earnings to sustain your lifestyle? If you are thinking of quitting your day job because you find it extremely stressful and not worth your efforts, you can try writing online but let us be practical here. Not all bloggers are successful enough to make good money. Checkout the following statistics on how much money a blogger earns.
- A report from Glassdoor reveals that between $19K to $79K can be earned by a blogger

How much you can make from your blogs depends on the quality and uniqueness of your blogs and how effective it is in building traffic for a site. For example if you are creating blogs about ‘My Little Pony Pajamas‘, how well did your blog generate traffic for the site and how many conversions did the site make? In many cases, it is not always your content that will make you money but how you use content for affiliate marketing to get a percentage of earnings from the clicks generated on My Little Pony Clothes. Blogging is also an investment meaning you have to exert a lot of time and efforts at research, typing and editing before you make real money.
Blogging success does not come easy

Blogging won’t make you rich but it will allow you to write about things or events that you are passionate about. The goal of many bloggers is not always about money but being able to share their ideas through blog posts. Blogs provide an outlet for creativity and to write about things that matter. If the blog turns out to be a source of revenue, you can finally do it full time.
