I was interviewed during the week by an Australian journalist who was fascinated by the idea that people were making money from blogs.
As with most interviews that I do the old ‘how much can bloggers earn?’ question came out fairly early in the piece (it’s an oldie but a goodie).
I quoted a couple of the polls that I did of ProBlogger readers last year with regards to their AdSense and Chitika earnings and then realized that it’s been a while since we did a poll on reader earnings. In fact it’s been an even longer time since we did a ‘total earnings’ poll.
So it’s time for another one.
This week’s sidebar Poll asks the question:
How Much Money did you Make from Blogging in April?
I’m talking ALL forms of income from your blog – from direct income earners like Advertising, Selling products and Affiliate programs through to indirect earners like consulting or speaking work that you might have picked up BECAUSE of your blog (more on the distinction between direct and indirect earnings here).
I’m also talking on a personal level – what YOU earnt from all blogs you work on.
Don’t answer straight away – tally it up, give it some thought and then let us know.
If you didn’t earn any money from your blog in April either because you tried and didn’t have any luck or because you don’t try to then there is an option for you also.
If you’d like to comment on your vote or on the poll in general feel free to do so on this post.
