Can I Really Make a Living by Blogging?
It is possible to make a living by writing online —Yes, a very good one indeed.
There are two main approaches to professional blogging - You could be a freelance or employed blogger for an established company or site , or you can start your own blog from scratch.
Getting a job as a professional blogger is much easier than starting at ground zero with your own blog.
Setting up your own blog, however, takes a lot more work, like starting your own business. Some people have made it big (the likes of YourStory, ShoutMeLoud, Quick Sprout, Digital Inspiration, NexBigWhat, I Will Teach you to Be Rich, Tech 2, 9Lessons, Techpp, Trak.in, Labnol.org ), while others have yet to make a penny from theirs.
The truth is, it's not as easy to carve out your space on the web and make a name for yourself as a blogger today, as it was back when blogging was brand new. And it takes a lot of time to build your audience to the point where it's successful. So it's definitely not something you can get rich quickly with, though many people do work on their blogs full time.
