The animal kingdom is a great place to seek out blogging answers. Think of the internet as territories. Bloggers are little rodents when compared to giant e commerce sites, social networking sites, or internet portals. Bloggers that make any money are the lucky rodents that find the left over meat the lions didn’t finish off.
When examining the animal kingdom, we have to talk about the food chain. There can’t be too many animals that are high up in the food chain. It just doesn’t work that way. Bloggers who think that they can become the next problogger need to sniff on some reality. Chow, ron jeremy, and darren hold up top spots in the make money online niche. There’s a couple other make money bloggers who are close to their level. If you wanted to make as money as these guys by blogging, you would have to dethron one of these guys. There isn’t enough room for any more high level make money blogs.
I’m a rational person. I’ve accepted the fact that i’m only gonna make a few bucks with this blog. I’m happy with it, and because of that, i’ve placed a time limit on this blog. I try not to spend more then 45 mins on this blog. Considering the amount of time i invest, i think i’m getting an ok return.
Your time is valuable. If you’re trying to make money online, you have to think about how much your time is worth. If you spend multiple hours every day on your blog, but only make a few quarters, you should start a different type of website. Blogging might not be for you. I know that it’s not just about the money. But if that’s the case, then why are you reading a make money online blog?
Even mickey D’s pays like 8 bucks an hour. In the beginning, you won’t make anything with your blog. But after a few months, if you’re still not making a dime, find a different type of website to monetize. Your time might be better spent on other ventures. It’s fight or flight. 5 months of blogging and you only made 10 bucks? That means you lost the fight. It’s time to take the flight route. Find another niche to blog about, or find another website to start up.
Sorry to break the news, but blogging for cash isn’t for everyone. I know idiots make money, but some idiots are better then others.
