Since the announcement of what I will be talking about at WordCamp UK this weekend, I have had some interesting feedback. The topic is “Making a Living from Blogging”. I didn’t realize the subject would be so controversial!
The reactions I have received have fallen into three broad categories:
- I do …
- How do I …
Some of those in the first category have been adamant that just by going ahead with my talk I am selling snake oil.
The fact is, I make my living through blogging and there are quite a few others doing the same. It’s not just the famously profitable folks like Darren and John Chow. I asked the question over at LinkedIn and answers are beginning to come in from others who make all or part of their income through blogs and blogging.
There are numerous routes to earning money from blogs, but each takes time and continued effort. I think most of the problem people have with the subject is there are those who would have you believe it is a quick and easy way to make big bucks, when it is anything but.
What do you think about the whole making money from blogs subject? For? Against? Wish everyone would stop talking about it? Please let us know in the comments …
