1. This was PACKED with great information. To be honest I had no idea how important blogging can be for creating money, or even leads. Very well put together here. I’m saving this for a reference for myself.
    Thanks so much!!!

    • Thank you for your comment Mark πŸ™‚ I’m happy you found this infographic informative.

  2. I believe more than 14 percent of bloggers make an income. This was interesting to know. I am confused on how some sites like the top earning blogs mentioned are owned by certain individuals but have articles and content published by different authors. Do you know how that works?

    • Yes, it’s called “Guest Posts”. When you have a successful blog you can offer other good bloggers to write an article (guest post) on your blog and link back to their website.
      Some successful bloggers charge for these guest posts and some just enjoy the free content.

      Thank you for your comment Max πŸ™‚

  3. Awesome! So easy to read with lots of great stats. What do you think of writing a blog for the Huffpost blog. Do you think that gets any more readers to your site? Or should I concentrate on my own blog platform?

    • Hello Linda,
      Yes, I think that writing for the Huffpost blog, or any other blog in your niche is a good idea for getting quality traffic and create good backlinks for better ranking.

      You can read more HERE about article submission, and you can find a huge list of websites you can submit your articles at.

      Best of luck πŸ™‚

  4. These are great facts that I did not know about bloggers or blogging. I have been blogging for over six months now and not made a dime but my blow is more of a hobby any way so I don’t mind lol, Thanks for the great article.

    • Hi James,
      A lot of bloggers just really enjoy sharing their thoughts and communicate with other people who are interested in the same niche they are after.
      I’m glad you call it a hobby, that means you enjoy it! The most successful bloggers started their blog as a hobby.

      Have a beautiful day and stay motivated!

  5. I’ve seen your site before. You always choose relevant and adventurous topics!!! I really need to start picking the brains of others who know the ins and outs of blogging. This has got stuff I can really use!!!

    • I’m really happy you find this post useful Lisa πŸ™‚ Thank you for your kind comment.

  6. This ia a very informative infographic that all bloggers should look at carefully. A lot of bloggers blog to share an opinion to generate an awareness on a specific topic. With no intention to monetize. I think this attributes to the low earnings listed for the average blogger mentioned in this post.

    • Hello Maurice,
      I do agree with you that many bloggers blog share an opinion to generate an awareness with no intention to earn money.
      It’s not about the money after all πŸ™‚

    • Hi Kristel,
      I also love infographic, it’s so fun and easier to understand, although it takes a long time to prepare one…
      Thank you for your comment.

  7. Another thing people might not know is at times ghost writing can pay well. If you do ghost write though make sure you take the time to learn the brand message of the company for which you are writing. The voice of the brand is what people come to trust.

    • Indeed Dennis! Ghostwriting can pay very well.
      But you better love what you’re doing… as someone once said: “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”.
