How Much do We Make and How do We Make It?

Of the 70 bloggers who, at this writing, have responded to the "How Much do You Make from Blogging" poll (see middle column), 27 of us, or 39%, make $10 or more per month. Great! Now let's take this conversation to the next level:

Reader and blogger extraordinaire Minnemom posted some essential questions on the BlogCoach Community Board aimed at those of us who make $10 or more blogging:

  • How many readers/subscribers do you have?
  • How long did it take to make money from your blog?
  • Where does your revenue come from (Google ads, affiliates, other)? Is one more lucrative than another?
  • If you moved from a non-ad blog to one that is monetized, did you feel like it was a good move? Any drawbacks to placing ads?
  • Is there anything you'd do differently in retrospect?
Come on, moneymaking BlogCoach readers-- time to dish (anonymously, if you like)! And if you haven't responded to our (also anonynous) poll at right, please do! ...So who's first?
