Can You Make A Living Blogging?

It is normal to have doubts, especially if you have not met a person who makes his living blogging.

Who would trade his job for something like blogging? For many people, they’d think no person in his right mind will quit his job which is a secure source of income, to just do blogging.

Blogging, publishing articles on a website, daily or in a regular basis.

Perhaps you are one of those people who are wondering, “How can money be made out of that?”

I used to think the same, until I read in a magazine (Entrepreneur Philippines Magazine) a story of a person who spend his day either in a coffee shop in the city of Manila or in a coffee shop in Boracay Beach.

He confessed, with his income from blogging, he can afford to travel to Boracay every month—a luxury here in the Philippines only high income earners can afford.

If you’re not convinced with this story, think about Entrepreneur Magazine…

Will they lie with their featured story?

You Need Some Training

Did my story arouse your interest in blogging?

If yes, you may now be wondering where do you start. How do you get started?

First all, before doing, one must first undergo “learning”.

Training.

One might argue there’s no need to invest money in this training because information about blogging is readily available in sites like YouTube.

Really?

In one of the training that I’ve attended on the field of blogging, I learned why people spend money on things that are in fact available for free online.

Almost everything that we want to learn, you can search for them online for free, so why spend money?

The main reason why we spend money at all is, although the information that we need can be found online for free, it is quite a challenge compiling the most important things.

It is a big challenge getting only what we need.

Avoid Getting OverwhelmedThus, we often end up overwhelmed.

With a training that we pay for, someone who is an expert in the field, have organized the information for us. Organized in the sense that, we easily absorb them and not get overwhelmed.

Now, with regard to learning how to blog, I invite you to subscribe via the opt-in form on the side bar of this blog, and get access to the video lessons about setting up a website or blog.

How To Make Money With A Blog

This is the most interesting thing for many people. Making money with a blog.

Who else doesn’t want to make money? I bet, no one would ever raise a hand. We all need money.

In the video lessons that I am going to share with you (via the opt-in form on the side bar), you will learn not only how to set up a blog. You will also learn how to make money with it, “how to monetize it” (in blogging parlance).

Best of all, you will discover a lucrative opportunity in sharing this training to others.

Yes, this training rewards people for bringing other students in!

Actually, in the lessons, you will be trained how to blog about anything, and get paid for anything.

You blog for companies, you blog about products, you can get paid for it. That’s how you can use it to make a living, on top of using it for expressing your ideas and opinions online.

But do our lessons work?

    Hi Gomer, 

    I love your article, and yes, you can make a living blogging! You’ve captured so many of the great things about blogging and how it can lead to making a living. 

    So many people want that “get rich quick” thing and throw money at things that claim they will work fast. The reality is it takes dedicated time and patience to create meaningful content and build up solid traffic online and then it will lead to sales and income. Patience and hard work are both needed for success. 

    Thanks again for this great article!

      Yes, patience and hard work. But not as hard as someone would do in hard labor jobs. lol

      Thanks for commenting. I bet you are also into blogging, as you are very much aware of what it takes to succeed in blogging. 

      If there’s anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask.

      Success,

    I am a blogger and a proud member of WA community. At present I have 3 successful websites and earning well. WA provides very good training and makes setting up your website very easy. A successful website requires hard-work and patience, but once you generate a good traffic, your hard work starts paying off. It was a very good experience for me and i encourage others to just give it a try and be patient, your hard-work will count.

    Hello Kabayan! 

    I agree with your article that people can make money in blogging, I’ve seen many successful bloggers at WA. They also started from zero knowledge but now they are very successful. 

    Some people want easy and quick money income, they don’t see the importance of training and hard work which can reap overtime. 

    I just started my training and I can say I’m in the right place, their training is very valuable with good quality, I’ve never seen this kind of training to our country. 

    There’s a lot of amazing people in PH and all over the world I really hope they stumble your article and learn this lucrative business because blogging is fun plus we can earn doing it. 

    Thanks for sharing a story of a successful blogger from PH. I read it, it’s so inspiring, English is our second language I must admit it took a long time before I finish a content, but it also helps me to improve my language and writing skills. 

    May I ask How long have you been to this business?

    • Gomer Magtibay

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      I’ve been to blogging since 2015, on and off. I just put more time on this just recently, and so far, loving it. 

      There are two reasons why I love blogging: First, it’s a great tool for expressing your mind without much exposing yourself just like we have in video. Second, it’s a great marketing tool as it utilize what we call “inbound marketing” where we attract qualified leads to us instead of us hunting for customers which is a little bit intrusive.

      My goal for this website is to encourage people especially our kababayans in the Philippines to at least try blogging. It’s a good part time business or a hobby to express thoughts and feelings.
