  1. I make money online working as a transcriptionist. All of that work is done via internet.

  2. I don’t make any money from my blogging although I’d love too.
    My money comes from my e-commerce personalized ornament site

  3. I sell stuff at and have done freelance graphic work online but want to bring in more sales from building my blog to bring attention to my store. I am in the learning stage of what blogging is all about and why I am on this blog right now.

  4. Mainly My income source is adsense. I am working full time job and at night i am doing 2 hour blogging which make some money for my pocket. It is being too handy with my study and i find out two hour for it.

  5., eBay,

    Nothing from blogs…yet!!

    Great site, by the way!

    Cheers, Mark (Nottingham,UK).

  6. On my blog I make some additional money from my Spreadshirt shop. My blog has led to my job at where I now write the Spreadshirt blog –

  7. I am into paid posting and it somehow helps me to monetize my blog.

    I do not know any non-blogging sources that I am capable to do, and I will appreciate if I will learn more.

  8. Web site consulting, editorial content for businesses, SEO and teaching the basics to newbies.

  9. Yup- our monthly revenue comes from:

    – individual clients (5%)
    – group teleclasses, workshops, retreats (50-70%)
    – information/learning products (25-45%)

    The blog is only just starting to help with the marketing of all of this.

  10. I’m a roofing and waterproofing contractor in Toronto. I have some job quote enquires from my company web. Not much. Normally not a large job. Still, business is business!
    I also have a blog writing about home maintenance – normally pick up idea in my jobs, trainings or faq from my customer. The money from pay per click and a job (can not compare).

  11. I am also a donationware developer of time managment/productivity tools and small desktop utilities.

    My most well known application is Instant Boss.

    I have made 3x as much from that than I have from blogging, which isn’t saying much because I haven’t really made all that much from my software. Not even enough to afford a cup of coffee each day.

  12. As well as having a blog about songwriting, I record my own music and I make money by selling downloads of my music.

  13. I make money through Affiliate Programs and Adsense.

  14. 99% of my income comes from non blogging sources, “but”, my blog brings me 100% of my clients these days.

    My blog gives me credibility. Readers can see my track record live.

  15. I’ve made a few hundred dollars from my site in it’s first month. 50% adsense and 50% ebook sales.

  16. Yup!! I sell a fair amount of stuff on eBay and trademe. That counts right?
