Bloggers Making Fortunes Online
Today I decided to research how much my favorite blogs are earning every month and I wasn’t surprised to see some of them make over $100,000 per month.
These are blogs and success stories that have inspired me to become a blogger. These Superstar bloggers continue to inspire me to this day – and they have kept me motivated to not give up whenever it got tough, especially in the early days.
1) To give you some idea of the potential available – top blogging network, Weblogs, Inc. is believed to earn about $30 million a month revenue from 13 million unique visitors.
2) And it is not just about making money monthly it is also about building a BUSINESS that can be sold, such as 22 year old Johns Wu did when he sold his blog for $15 Million.
Some of the website’s featured in this top list are only estimates and are not all 100% correct just a indication of how well they are doing regarding making money from their blog. If you would like to be featured in this list or know of any blogger’s that should, please comment below!
Check out the TOP EARNING BLOGS list below. I have already interviewed a number of these Superstar bloggers but hope to interview a lot more of them over the coming months – so watch out for that.
