I know that if you want to make money with blogs, you gotta go pro.
Casual will never lead to any profit. Because people don’t read casual blogs no longer, now everybody’s chilling on Facebook.
The fact is – nobody out there wants to connect with you.
Tell me times when you landed on a casual blog? I bet, lately none of times. Casual blogging is dead. Blogging for profit is dead, unless you started your blog 10 to 20 years back.
Chances of new blog being successful are very slim.
Because there are millions if not billions of blogs. Now people have more options to choose from than ever. Nobody’s going to read your blog, well maybe some folks, but forget about making money from blogging.
I got 500 posts in this blog and I get only 10 visitors a day. That’s like 0.02 visits per post. And that’s lame. You spend all of your time creating posts and you barely get any views. Sure you can buy views, but when you’re not selling anything it’s not worth buying views.
I’ve done advertising on my Lithuanian blog. I bought advertising from adf.ly and the visits were only 5 seconds, it’s not worth it. You can get 1000 hits just for one 1 dollar. The traffic is cheap. If you want american traffic it will cost you 5 bucks.
Blogging won’t make you famous, blogging won’t make you rich, blogging won’t land you any opportunities, because I’ve tried – nothing magical happened.
When writing a blog you need to be reasonable. If you get 100 hits in your 3 months that’s great. But if you’re like me and get 10 hits a day, that’s great too. But it won’t land you any profit.
To make profit from your blog – you need a lot of traffic, and I mean – A LOT.
Probably nobody’s going to buy your ads if you’re getting just 3100 hits per month.
This is what you get when you don’t do any advertising.
These are shameful stats to be honest.
I was hoping for more, but you get what you deserve most of the time.
Like Tai Lopez said, you gotta deserve a good life. We all deserve, but it is how it is.
Almost 6 months of blogging and only 1379 sessions. So that’s 229.833333333 sessions per month. Not to shabby I would say.
But you can see, that people are discovering my blog. Maybe it needs more time. Typically, a professional blog gets all the traffic withing 6 months. But those blogs are done by pros. While I’m just an amateur.
I could get more hits if I did marketing, but since I’m selling nothing I don’t want to poor my money into advertising. Instead I would eat a pizza, or kebab, or a burger.
Many people who get into blogging believe that blogging is an easy way to get money, but most blogs quit just under 3 months. I have passed this mark, the next mark is 6 months, then 12 months, then 24, 36, 48 months.
If in 4 years your blog doesn’t yield you any money, you won’t be making any money from your blog. Period.
Blogging is a tough business. Because the competition is stiff.
If I had this kind of mind like I have now. I would have started my blog earlier, but you know – I was targeting specific niche and then I burned up. I never imagined that I could go nicheless. I hesitated to start a blog for many years, because I doubted my success.
At first I wasn’t confident to write in English, I thought that my English sucks, but after awhile I started writing in English even when English isn’t my prime language.
Forget about cash from casual blogging.
