April Judson @AprilJudson can you make a living from blogging anymore??
ANSWER: I don’t really know if anyone has ever made a living from blogging. Maybe there has been three types: the companies that created blogger.com, wordpress, weblogs, etc.
The companies that call themselves blogs but are really mini-media empires (HuffPo, Gawker, etc)
And three: the bloggers who sell DVDs on “how to make money blogging”.
So the answer is “No”
Assuming you have a kick-ass blog (great content, you syndicate a lot, etc)
You can parlay that into:
– Consulting opportunities
– Speaking opportunities
– Investing opportunities
– Client opportunities
From my blog I’ve made money on each of those. Far more than I would’ve made from taking ads.
