Will blogging produce millionaires? Can blogging financially provide people with a full time earning capacity? Will we see more and more professional bloggers blogging for dollars? Can and should blogs earn money?
An increasing amount of people are writing about making money from Blogging. There is a quite a bit of debate about the legitimacy of doing so.
Megnut wrote an interesting article titled Blogging for Dollars: Giving Rise to the Professional Blogger . She writes:
‘Most financial discussions focus on blog content and explore donations, advertising, or some type of sponsorship/patronage model as the means to compensate bloggers. Very little progress has been made towards finding viable economic models because people still think of Weblogs as personal sites. If you aren’t Andrew Sullivan (who purportedly makes $6,000 per month on his site through donations), it’s hard to imagine how you’d get the traffic and donations to generate such revenue….
By paying great bloggers to produce Weblogs, we remove economic constraints and enable them to devote their energies full-time to producing compelling content and creating outstanding Weblogs.’
Whether you agree with it or not – here are some of the ways bloggers are going earning money from their blogs.
