  • Jessica says:

    This is great insight! I know of a few bloggers who post their advertising revenue every month. It’s really interesting to see how much it can fluctuate in one month.

  • Danelle says:

    I love it whenever people come together and share
    opinions. Great website, continue the good work!

  • Corinna says:

    Can’t wait to make my first $1,000!

  • Jin Ai says:

    This should be interesting. I’m having trouble opening the page but this is one I’m going to keep trying. I started my blog primarily to build relationships and monetizing isn’t my strong point. It’s worth looking at how other people are working it for sure.

  • Teresa says:

    This is something I really need right now. I have an existing blog but I’ve been away from it for a while. I want to jump back into it now and possibly supplement my income at the same time. Thanks for sharing a resource that’s open and honest.

  • kelly louise says:

    love it. i get frustrated that everyone is so hush hush about it.

  • I’m all for sponsored posts for monetization. But, for some reason ads just aren’t my thing. I’m so anal that visually they bug me on my blog.

  • Superfresh says:

    I’ve always wondered how bloggers make my money. I know some successful bloggers and I think it is awesome!

  • it’s very hard and a long term business to promote a website or a blog… for blogs you have to concentrate on your specific niche if you want to have good results

  • Laura says:

    I got a red flag from McAfee as this being a dangerous site, so I decided not to go there, but it would have been an interesting read.

  • Ali Sue says:

    This is just what I needed to know today – that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I was getting bogged down worrying about pageviews and analyics. I really love my blog and I love writing it so if it turns out as well as yours and your guests, I will be overjoyed! Thanks for the reality check and letting us in to your pocketbook per se!

  • Camila says:

    I think this is just the kind of post I needed to read today. I confess I often think about if all this effort is worth it, sometimes I’m not sure about blogging, but I love it, I really like making new friends and building strong and loyal relationships with other bloggers but in times it get s SO hard to grow and start making some money. This post has been very motivating and gives me what I need to keep up and don’t give up, everything is possible if we keep trying!!!

    Thanks so much!

    Reasons To Skip The Housework

  • This actually made me a little depressed. I’ve been blogging for 2 1/2 years and I LOVE it but am no where close to these sites. Rather than dwell on my low numbers I’m going to use it to motivate myself. Time to switch to wp.org

  • Thank you so much for this post! Really good read! I am very new to the blogging world – my blog is only a month old and this has been a very inspiring post for me and a positive outlook and direction to take my blog in.

  • This is a very informative topic. Thanks for sharing this information. It really did help to see how the other blogs do it.

  • I need help in re-formatting my blog. I have so many ideas of how I want my blog to look, however I can’t seem to get how I would like it.

  • I tried SOO SOO SOO SOO SOO hard to make $ off my blog, but nothing works, so I have resorted to NOT caring too much and instead just entertaining the readers who come to my site! 🙂

  • I really love this article and it’s inspirational.

    The cat’s out of the bag! ;->

    When it comes to the actual amount of money that is made through a blog it’s like the elephant in the room – just about everyone wants to know the dollar amount but you’re afraid to ask because you think people will perceive that’s your only motivation and relationships, and conversations, change.

    Money is always a tricky subject, now matter what context, so I’m happy you’ve found 6 Bloggers to share. Good to know!

  • It’s really great to get these kinds of numbers and see what is realistic and unrealistic in terms of goals! It doesn’t feel like such a shot in the dark now.

  • Honeybee says:

    very interesting! Heading there to read more.

  • Thanks so much for sharing this! I’m always looking for ways to grow my blog an eventually (hopefully) draw an income from it. Like many of the commenters, I just don’t know where to start. This is a great and informative read.

  • Chris Carter says:

    I can’t WAIT to read this… something I would love to know!

  • Kristen says:

    Thank you so much for sharing!! I’ve always wondered what’s realistic to expect as far as income and stats go. Obviously, every blog is different, but I’m glad to have this as a reference.

  • MomChalant says:

    This is EXACTLY what I needed.

  • Very inspiring post! I was especially inspired by the message to not give up.

    I started a few blogs in the past and never gave them enough time to take off. I’ve since started a new one with a brand new stick-to-it attitude. So, I’m super excited about the journey and where I’ll go.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  • great article. My blog is right where these ladies are as far as views per month, following and length of blogging. I think I am my own worst enemy…it has taken me forever to figure out what avenue to try first for making money blogging. There are so many resources I didn’t know where to start. I am putting this in high gear and going in full force and am determined now more than ever to make a buck before the end of the Summer. Thank you!!!

  • Emelie says:

    This might have been the exact motivation I needed today. I’ve been toying with the idea of going to the paid version of WordPress for a while now so that I could start getting advertisers…. It might be time.

  • Shawn says:

    Very interesting. I’ve always wondered about this.

  • Lisa says:

    Very interesting read….I will reference once my book is complete and my blog/book coexist! Thanks!
