Blogging for money in 2022.. Well some people will wonder. But blogging is a hobby right? Its nice and fun to write about things you love and like but making money with a blog…well welcome to 2022. Its a living! and yes it can make you rich. Want to know more about Rich bloggers? Then read this. Selling your blog for millions? Ow hell yeah. Techcrunch, a technology blog is a popular blog with millions of traffic that sold to AOL for 25 million. Like what? Some people became millionaires years later after launching their blog because of their blog. They sold their blogs or have multiple income streams. Blogging can make you rich for sure. Think big and you will get big. Blog in English. You can reach the whole world.
Well to be really honest: we(there is actually no we) blog for money. I blog for money! Okay, we also like to be creative, show our ideas, fashion looks, beauty looks and ideas and its also kind of a portfolio for other design work and we hope to find a creative director job somewhere at a great company. Someone who sees our talent and like to think of ideas for the brand. For now I work as a social worker because I like doing something next to my blogs and I like helping others.
But blogging is just my living for now (not a millionaire yet, this will take another 10 years I think but Im going for it). I blog for the money. And yes you can make a lot of money with blogging. For now I am just making 2k (not even yet;)) per month with some Dutch blogs, but I think this blog will bring in a lot of money in a few years. I don’t like working for a boss and I just like to be my own boss. For now I do have an extra job as social worker for some extra money and because I like helping people but also because I want to invest in new ideas. Do something good for the world and others and it will come back to you. Karma does exist. We believe in this.
Making money with blogging is all about traffic. The more traffic, the more money. Once we reach the 50.000 sessions (that is around 60.000/80.000) pageviews per month we will try out Mediavine. I have seen many blogs write good things about this Premium advertising network. With Mediavine you can earn between 10 and 30 dollar for every 1000 pageviews. Thats a lot for advertising! Some people even make more. Imagine 50 dollar for every 1000 pageviews and you have 1 million pageviews. That is 50.000 dollar just with advertising. It all depends on your niche and traffic. So you can easily make 2k with your blog just with advertising only. And that is with 1 blog! What if you have 2 or 3 blogs like me? Of course there are other advertisers like Mediafem, Ezoic, Adthrive etc. Do you know any good advertising networks? Maybe also for our Dutch blogs? TELL US! We are growing with our traffic very fast. WE ALSO LOVE THIS ADVERTISER.
And then there is affiliate marketing and sponsored content/guestposts. This is also a big business and a way to make more money with your blog. Affiliate marketing is not that easy, but it can make you some extra a month. Having 500k unique visitors? Think of 5000/10.000 dollar a month with affiliate marketing, but this can be a lot more depending on your blog niche and traffic. You have to promote the right products. Clothing products will not make you millions, but maybe some digital products will like for example online courses that teach people something. Find the right products to promote. It must also be a match with your niche. Of course we won’t promote any gadgets. This is not a match with our blog and traffic.
Then there is: sponsored content. You can make a lot of money with sponsored posts, although everyone wants guestposts nowdays and linkbuilding is a big business on blogs. There a lot of companies for sponsored posts/guestposts. Once you have more then 5000/10.000 unique visitors a month you can sign up at these networks and make some extra money.
So you can make money with premium advertising networks like Mediavine or Ezoic, with sponsored content and affiliate marketing. Just try all and make a combination of income streams.
And what do you think of selling your own products? Look at the famous beauty Queen Huda Kattan. She started her own blog about beauty and now has a beauty empire worth millions. She was one of the first bloggers selling Beauty products/make-up. Now every celebrity/blogger has their own line. I think its difficult these days to start your own line and make money. You don’t have the name yet, you are not Rihanna, Ariana Grande or Kylie jenner..
So we actually think blogging is the best way to make money in 2022. Or you must be very good at making videos and start at YouTube or TikTok. But everyone is there nowadays.
Instagram, YouTube, TikTok all nice and fun but difficult now. Everyone is there and wants to get famous and seen. So if you don’t have the name yet it will be very difficult to make it big on these platforms. But you can always try of course.
So what are you waiting for?
Start your own unique blog nog and make 10k a month in a few years or maybe even more. Become a blog millionaire! I am on my way. Are you joining me?
Blogging for money in 2022? OW HELL YEAH!
The broke blogger that turned millionaire? Stay tuned!
