How much can one earn from blogging?

Singapore's Top Blog Marketing CoachI’ve been asking myself this “How much can I eventually earn from blogging like this everyday?” Because I have been making a couple (read “a lot!”) of sacrifices in terms of rescheduling appointments and deciding not to go for some other possible opportunities out there, just to stay home and find out more about corporate blogging, more about the blogosphere, and about blog marketing, so that I can be the best Singapore Blog Marketing Coach! I’m pursuing my dream lifestyle – one which I can stay at home and work.

So for the past month, and more specifically for the past two weeks, the ONE THING I think about when I wake in the morning is – “What’s happening in the blogosphere and how can I contribute my comments in a new post on” I wake up, just to type “blog marketing” in Technorati and search for fresh articles to feed my mind.

I had a really weird dream last night, and I guess it was because I was watching the neighborhood video shop screening X-Men 2. I dreamt of myself as a mutant, working along with the X-Men. I can’t really remember what happened, but I vividly remember myself saying this:

“Hi, I’m Kian Ann, I’m a mutant, I feed on blogs.”

Its hilarious! I woke up, thinking… WHAT THE HECK? I feed on blogs? Man! Talk about signs of too much blogging! :mrgreen:

Anyway, back to the topic. So how much can one earn from blogging?

So again, I was reading my daily reads, and once again, I’m inspired by ProBlogger Darren Rowse, in his post I’m a six figure blogger. This is way cool. $100K from blogging! Now, as Darren put it, this road is not going to be easy, its not a get rich quick scheme, but its really exciting, and its way what I love to do! Besides, I think blogging is a really awesome way to hone your skills to express yourselves in words, and in critical thinking when leaving your two cents worth about the things going on in the blogosphere.

I must admit, there are lots of experts out there who have been in this line for years… there is much to learn, and I’ll take it in, one blogger bite at a time (thanks Easton from BusinessBlogWire for the nice catchy “blogger bite” phrase!) :mrgreen:

I’m going to post this kind of posts in a new category “My Blogging Journey”… I think it will be fun to look back at everything two years from now.

Blog on!
