And the first question come to their mind is how much money can you make with a blog? Yes, we always wanted to validate first before we take any action. There is nothing wrong, obviously.
In this article I am going to share some facts about blogging and also share some examples where I will showcase how much money bloggers are making from their blogs. I will also share my income report so that you can get some idea about myself.

Can I Really Make a Living by Blogging?
If I have to answer this question in single term then it would be, YES. See, blogging is not like any typical jobs where you will work for someone and they will pay a decent salary every month. Although this model is also there, I will talk about that. But blogging is more or like starting your own business driven by your interest.
E.g. if you are starting a physical shop in any market, you will go through some challenges and if you are able to set up your shop then you will start making good money. But this is not possible from day 1. Generally it may take 6 month to 1 year depending on the business you are starting.
Similarly, blogging is all about creating a website, writing content, getting traffic and providing more value to your readers. Gradually there are various income options that you can utilize and start making money from your blog.
So, as a blogger, if you are thinking how can I make money from blogging? Then let me explain this first.
1. Blogging As Part-time
The concept of passive income is very popular and this is nothing but creating an extra income source besides your full-time profession or business. E.g. Myself working as a Software Engineer full-time. But besides that due to interest I started this blog with few others which is helping me to make avg $1500-$2000 every month which is simply amazing. I am not sure how much money is enough for you, but this amount is very good for me as a passive income. So, if you are also like me then you can easily make money from a blog using affiliate marketing, Google AdSense, Sponsored post etc.
Motivation: I started a subdomain to share Black Friday deals for Bloggers in 2019. In 2019, I made around $8000 and in 2020 I made around $6000 in just 1-2 months promoting Black Friday Cyber Monday deals for web hosting, WordPress tools etc.
2. Blogging As Full-Time
Now they are the bloggers who are making seriously good amount of money from their blog networks. There are many people who are making serious amount of money leaving their 9-5 jobs. But that needs a lot of dedication and effort. This is exactly like running your own business and you can’t stay back relaxed. I am going to share some examples of bloggers and how much they are making from their blogs in recent times as well. Becoming a full-time blogger looks attractive, but this is not at all an easy task.
Despite blogging for more than 10+ years I am still continuing Blogging as part-time without leaving my job. As I love to do both and at the same time. If you have a job with good salary which is guaranteed, it’s not that easy to leave & start blogging full-time. Where in blogging their are a lot of uncertainties besides huge earning potential. So, you have to make sure you pick the right one or else continue both like me.
For college pass students who has some good ideas to execute, for them blogging can be a good choice to create a career as you may not get a good salary job in first 3-4 years of service. But if you can learn and implement things on the right way, this is enough to make huge money from blogging and becoming a career in blogging.
3. Blogging For Freelancing
There are many bloggers who only blog to promote their services. In blogging there are various activities like content writing, SEO services, Link building, Social Media promotion etc. If you are an expert in any of them you can easily provide quality services and make a very good amount of money. Many freelancers are doing blogging just to promote their services, their skills to get customers. If you don’t want to create a blog also, you can connect with bloggers are get these kind of work and get paid on monthly or weekly basis besides your studies or job or business.
So, if you still have a question like whether you can make money through blogging then I am sure you got your answers. If you have still doubt then in the next section let’s discover few of the Bloggers Income Reports to understand the potential of blogging. By the way, I have shared a round up post recently where top bloggers shared what’s the future of blogging.
How Much Money Can You Make With a Blog?
Before sharing others income, let me talk about how much money I make from blogging. I get this question many times and mostly people think that I am a full-time blogger. Well, as I have mentioned already, I blog only on my free time or you can say as hobby basis only.
Besides this blog I have create few subdomain around this domain and few more websites which are almost dead these days. I am not getting much time to work on multiple blogs so gradually consolidating them all and trying to focus on 2-3 blogs only. That’s the challenge of a part-time blogger. 🙂
Anyway, let me share few of my income screenshots that will help you to understand How Much Money Can You Make With a Blog.
This website is hosted on Bluehost Choice Plus plan. And I am promoting Bluehost as this is the best hosting for beginners. Right now you can see that my main blog with few subdomains are with Bluehost only. And in last 3 months we made more than $2200 from Bluehost only. If you want to buy Bluehost then I would request you to use my affiliate link and get a chance to grab $300 worth BONUS at the same time.
Besides that I also promote a lot of products through ShareAsale & Impact and here their income reports. Although I promote few other products which has different tracking system. But let me share few of the screenshots here.
So, I am sure you will get some idea about what is the potential of blogging and how much one can make from blogging. And this is just few products I am promoting, there are plenty of affiliate networks and products which you can promote and make good amount of money.

2. Adam Enfroy Of adamenfroy.com
It’s hard to believe, but Adam made $83,737 in the month of NOV 2020. With an aim of $1 million per month he started his journey back in 20219 only and in just 2 years he left everyone behind and making some mammoth figures. Remember, this is the same saturated blogging industry where Adam has entered just 2 years back and started generating income from those typical & highly competitive products only. You can read the complete income report details here.
So, from this one thing can be concluded that it is good to try for a competitive niche with tough competition product as people are buying that and if you have a unique strategy you can make huge. Other one is that, there is nothing called saturated niche, if you want to do something different.
