Interesting Infographic About Blogging And How Much Can A Successful Blog Earn?

To me, my blog is not only a platform to share my view, story or anything come to mind, in regards to stock investing, it is also an avenue for me to test water on how feasible is it for us to create an extra stream of "passive" income out of it. I am still learning and constantly in the fine-tuning mode. So, pardon me if it looks kind of crowded at times. 

The question I hope to answer is : how real is this potential, especially for unknown bloggers like me? (bearing in mind that not everyone can be, or want to be like Xia Xue).

Throughout my 11 months tenure since the existence of this blog, following are the monetization model that I've applied and their outcome :

1. Advertisements through banner placement/in-text ads : negligible i.e. haven't reach the minimum withdrawal amount yet.

2. Affiliate Marketing through ad banner/review posts : $1,000 - accumulative. I am quite surprise that this is the most performing model for me. I guess luck plays a major part here. 

3. Sponsored Posts : $100 - accumulative. It is hard to come by nowadays, only did 1 sponsored post thus far.

On average, it is about $100 per month. Of course, there is no guarantee that it is sustainable in the long run but it answered my initial self-doubt of earning some real "passive" income via online (the reason I put the word passive inside the quotation mark is because it is not really passive like earning interest/dividend without the need to do anything, Some level of commitment is required to research and blog about it). 

Recently, I chanced upon a cool Infographic by Ignite Spot, entitled Blogconomy. Thought some of you folks might be interested to know too. Some of the pertinent questions answered by this beautiful infographic are :

1. What are the types of blogger?
2. Average earning of blogger (in US)
3. Top 10 blogs with the highest earning (in US)  
4. Tips and tricks of monetizing your blog and many more...

Personally, I consider myself an hobbyist blogger and work towards becoming a part-time professional blogger. What about you?

  2. Hi Richard

    Wow thats really impressive my friend.

    The affliated marketing part was cool and pays well.Good to see you getting successful on the blog front.

    Great tips there as well, thank you!!!

    1. B : thanks! Let's continue to write interesting stuff and hopefully the flow will continue ;-)

  3. $100 a month is no joke! Congratulations! Looks like when I eventually decide to dabble in AM I shall ask you for pointers.

    Like yourself, I don't have much activities on my end at this time of the year, so I have time to blog about random stuff. Totally agree with the point that blogging is not really "passive". As always, let's keep enjoying blogging which is the most important. Any side income is definitely a bonus!

    Happy Lunar New Year!

    1. Turtle Investor : Ya, I am surprised myself too on the AM segment. Sure! Feel free to let me know if you need any clarification, let's learn together.
