Last year, Darren Rowse and Andy Wibbels published an e-learning course entitled Six Figure Blogging, which was focused on how to earn a six figure income through blogging. The course was highly successful and gathered alot of great feedback.
But was a six figure blogging course too much for some bloggers? Perhaps it’s easier to start by being focused on four or five figure blogging – and then earn one’s way up to $100,000 or more through growth over time.
The number of people who have the time, resources, and knowledge to develop a five or six figure income from blogging is very small in relation to the number of people that can devote a few hours a week to tacking $1,000 onto their yearly income through blogging. The amount of time it takes to earn $1,000 a year from blogging is significantly less than the time it takes to earn even $10,000.
There are many great resources for professional blogging – Darren Rowse’s Problogger, Ben Bleikamp’s College Startup, Problogging, and I’m sure there are others as well. But it’s good to have a simple place to start when you’re breaking into this business for the first time – and Ben’s post might just be that place. Keep an eye out for Part 2.
