What 53 Blog Income Reports Can Show You

How long does it take before you start making money with a blog? Weeks? Months? Years? And does the age of a blog have an impact on income?

Those are the questions I think about before falling asleep. And I’m sure you do too.

You’ve invested a few dollars and started your blog because you want to make money. But when will you see a return?

We live in an inpatient society. I want to make money today. I want to retire tomorrow. And I want to move to Hawaii, or in my case, the French Riviera, this weekend. I want to wake up every morning to the sound of church bells and French accents. I want to walk to the corner cafe and drink an espresso. And spend the rest of the day visiting antique churches, walking down cobbled streets and drinking wine until the sun sets.

But I have children and I’m a mom and those dreams will have to wait. Until then I enjoy playing on the floor with my toddler and cuddling my baby…..and working on my side hustle.

If you want to see my personal income reports, you can find them on this page.

So How Long Does It Take Before Bloggers Make Large Incomes From Their Blog?

Not as long as you think.

Imagine starting a business the old fashioned way.

You have an idea. But you don’t even know if it will work or not. But you love it! You design your product and get a patent ($5,000-$15,000). You get a manufacturer and make hundreds of your widget (cost of manufacturing can be tens of thousands). You rent a store in the nearest strip mall ($120-$200 per square foot for rent, if you’re as awesome as Apple). You run a few ads in the local paper. And then you wait.

By this time you’ve invested thousands into your business and you have yet to make any income! Where are your customers? Slowly they drip in. After years you finally start to make enough money to pay all of your expenses and you can stop eating ramen noodles.

Sure, that is a bad scenario, but it is very common.

Is Blogging A Faster Way To Make Money?

Now imagine you start a blog today. It costs you under $50 for an entire year of hosting! And that is the only expense you have to start your blog. That’s it!

You can immediately start and sign up as an affiliate for Amazon and promote the products you love. Within a few weeks you can easily make back that $50. Read how these bloggers made their first $100 with their blogs.

If you’re not building an audience online you are missing out.

“In the last decade or so, blogs and social media have made it so that we all now have the ability to build a massive audience with nothing but a smart phone or computer.” –Mike Taylor 

Just imagine there are hundreds of people waiting outside of your store who can’t wait to buy your product. That is what having a blog is!

Even if you don’t have a product or an idea yet. It will come. And when that amazing idea strikes, you’ll have a huge email list and a blog with thousands of visitors. Then you can pitch your product and make a full time income. All from the small cost of starting a blog. 

So if you’re just starting or you have a blog and need inspiration. Just keep at it. Keep posting consistently and grow your audience. Test new ideas. Try new courses. Invest in amazing education, like the Blog by Number course. If you stick with it, it will pay off.

Or even enroll in my free course to help you discover what to blog about and get 8,000+ blog post ideas. You’re welcome!

  • Hi Suzi, what a great resource! It’s so interesting to see where other bloggers fall on the income spectrum. It’s definitely inspirational to see how much you can make with time and dedication!

    I recently published my own income and traffic report. I would love to be included on this list if you still have room. 🙂

    I’d can also share more info with you if you’d like. Thanks!!

  • Thank you for including me on your list. I love reading income reports because they are so varied and diverse, and now I have a huge list to choose from!

    In the interest of full transparency I want to say that my current site This Fairy Tale Life is just a few months old, but I have gone through several URL changes and in actuality my website is about 5 years old. So it may look like I’m making ~$1000 a month after one year of blogging, but the truth is it has taken me much longer (and many mistakes/lessons) to get where I’m at today. And hopefully next year will be even better. 😉

  • Thanks for including me!! I chickled when I saw myself at the bottom because that is basically why I started reporting. You have to start somewhere right!? Love the range!

  • Thank you for including us in your report! I just published our June report, and we made over $191 last month. Hopefully we keep going up! Not up there with the big guys, but it is inspiring to see what they are doing!

  • Thank you so much for including us in your list! I LOVE seeing what other blogs are doing and how many people are being so transparent with their income. We’ve actually only been around for 2 years in October. 🙂 We started October 2014.

    • Jennifer! Thank you so much for your comment! It’s awesome that so many bloggers are open about their monthly incomes. Thank you for inspiring others to follow their dreams! And I’ve updated the age of your blog to 2 years 🙂 thank you!
