A lot of people wonder how much bloggers make and the ways in which they make money so today I figured I would do some research to find out. A lot of bloggers share their income reports which I am obsessed with reading. Many income reports basically share what money was earned through online means and a variety of bloggers will share theirs showing insight into their methods for making money. I personally enjoy reading these because I end up finding out about different networks, programs, and methods I can use myself to monetize my own website. So right now I am going to share with you guys how much 30 bloggers made and how they made their money.
I am going to focus on researching income reports from a specific month in 2017. I decided to go this far back mainly because a lot of times I have seen bloggers post about certain networks and then later on they will transition to other networks. This helps me learn about what type of other methods were available and if they’re still available now.
I will be sharing with you guys the name of the blog, how much they made, their blog topic, their traffic at the time (if they reveal it on their blog),and their methods that display how they made their money.
