    We hear so many stories of people that make huge amounts of money really quickly, but I really like the more realistic stories. For me, it’s taken a long time as a non techy person to learn all about websites, emails, promotions etc etc etc and only now am I really getting to grips with it! Thank you x

    Way to go for all these superstar bloggers. Yes, it takes time for sure. It’s good to see the range and then see how things generally continue on a nice upward trend.

    I started my flooring blog in 2011 as a way to generate business (and it did that very well). This year, I’ve been gradually monetizing and it looks like this month I may hit my goal of $1000/month by the end of year. Hoping for much more by end of next year.

    thanks for sharing this.

    1. admin says: December 28, 2016 at 3:09 pm

      We will be following you Debbi! That is fantastic!

  17. Tami says: December 27, 2016 at 11:11 pm

    It’s interesting to see the different lengths of time it took for different bloggers to earn an income! I definitely think it all depends on many factors such as how much research the person has done on blogging before they started their blog, whether or not they’ve ever had a blog before, whether it started as just a hobby or not, etc. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this!

    1. admin says: December 28, 2016 at 3:16 pm

      Absolutely Tami, experience definitely matters. The more someone knows, the faster it will go. Also depending on the why of starting a blog will reflect on how far they go!
