Reader Question: You write about making money online, but I’ve never seen you post any actual figures. Just how much do you make from your blog?
Answer: not a lot, actually. There, I said it. Admitted live, for the whole world to read.
This may strike you as a strange admission, given as this blog is partly positioned as a “make money from blogging” blog, but I hardly make any money from blogging, at all. To be honest, my first ever AdSense cheque only just got mailed out a month ago. Text Link Ads bring in about a month. So I’m not exactly living off the fat of the Internet Land.
Now, before you unsubscribe because I’m not the “expert” you thought I was, let me do some explaining. The Get Rich Project is about making money online, personal finance, and working towards financial independence. The personal finance bit has taken a back seat recently because I simply have nothing worthwhile to add at the moment.
So that leaves making money and working towards financial independence. Kinda the same thing, if you look at it one way.
Most of the online work I do is experimental. It’s trying out ideas. Some of these work, some don’t. It’s entrepreneurism., I’m looking to build a real business, not rely on advertising dollars. So I’m not making much just now. I don’t care. I’d rather make something worthwhile than have some short-lived “get rich quick” scheme.
The reader who asked the question above threatened to “out” me as a fraud if I didn’t tell all. Guess what chump, I seem to have outed myself. Oh dear, what ever shall I do? Keep on keepin’ on, that’s what.
You can still unsubscribe, if you like. I’ll be sad to see you go, but I think you’d be making a mistake. Would you rather learn with someone, or be preached at by Yet Another Guru (YAG)?
