How A Blogger Made US 3,400.66 From His Blog In January 2007
Posted on 2nd February, 2007
It has always been inspiring to see other bloggers making real money from their blog.
One of the recent stories is that of John Chow over at JohnChow.com. What’s amazing about his story is that, he only started blogging last year (if I’m not mistaken) and only decided to monetize his blog in September 2006.
Since then his blog has been enjoying a tremendous growth in income month after month.
He made $352.94 in September 2006, and five months after that his income had risen to $3,440.66!
In his post, John explains exactly where the money came from.
One thing for sure, only 16% of his total income derives from AdSense. So as it turns out, you do not have to put all your eggs in Google’s basket. You do know that don’t you?
If you want to have the chance to make as much as John, try to diversify your income sources but do it correctly, not in a way that sacrifices your user’s experience by cluttering your blog with ads. Study his blog and learn how he monetizes it.
I’ve observed something right off the bat, factors that seem to enable John’s blog to make that much money easily. He offers value to his readers with quality content and promotes his blog like crazy.
There’s no secret to making money from blogging, that’s all to it. Trust me 🙂
While I don’t make as much as John from my blogs, I believe if we can get these two things right, I’ve no doubt that we can make as much as John Chow in a couple of months. LOL
I’ve been a subscriber to his blog since I came to know about it from his AdSense ad at ProBlogger.net.
I am sure you’ve seen his ad, you know the one which say “I Love Darren Rowse”.
I also notice his ads appear on Sabahan.com. The one with the title ‘Your Blog’s A Money Maker’
