If you, just mention the word Blogger, instantly people think that you must be one of these #GlobeTrottingRichGuys , that gets to travel the world, writing about their adventures, while laying on the beach, and sipping pina colada’s, on some exotic island.
I’m sure, there are a lot of people out there, that wish that it was this easy to make money from blogging. It’s sounds simple, right? Surely, it must be easy to create a simple website, write a few articles, and maybe take a few photos, and then the money just starts poring in.
Well, this is far from true. The only people that are making money from this, are the people that are asking you to signup for their online course, which teaches you how to become an instant millionaire, and how you can automate your business, in 3 simple steps.
I cant tell you how many websites and videos that I have come across, that make out as if it’s so easy to make money online. Like, dude, if you are not making money online, then you must be stupid. It’s so easy, and everyone is doing it.
Well, I have to say this is all a load of bullshit. There is no quick way to make money, unless you are running a scam. There is no way to become an overnight success. Whatever you chose to do online, it will take time, money and effort.
Yes, there are a few ways to make money online, but unless you are prepared to create a 10 week video-course, write a 400 page book, or resell other peoples products, it’s going to be a lot harder than you imagined.
The easiest way to make money online as a blogger, is by adding pay-per -click advertising banners on your website, and then hoping that some of your visitors will click on them. But, the only problem here, is that you would need a few thousand visitors per day, before you will make any money at all.
Don’t be fooled by the people that say its easy to make money online. It’s not easy, and owning a website, or blog, is like having a full time job. You need to be prepared to put in a lot of time and effort, on a daily basis. You need to be passionate, persistent and dedicated to your art.
No one is perfect, and anyone can start a blog, but the only way that you will become successful, is to never give up. Everyday I learn something new. And every-time I write an article, I hope to be getting better at it. Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion, you never know who is listening.
Yes, you can make money from blogging, but this wont happen overnight. You need to put in the time and effort. You will also need to adapt, and change, as you go along. Be creative, build relationships, keep adding value, and keep learning, and you will eventually begin to make money online.
