If you are new to making money from blogging, you may not know a lot of bloggers who make money the old fashioned way online… these ladies and gentlemen all make money from adding value to others via their blogs.

How to Monetize Your Niche Website: Coaching Call #7 with Samara

“I created this blog originally as a way to discuss the various business ideas I was trying out. However, I’ve since honed in on a few areas of business; namely: creating niche websites (in lots of different niches), buying and selling websites, running a software company (Long Tail Pro), and recently selling physical products through Amazon FBA.”

How to Make Money Blogging

“For six years, I blogged as a hobby. In 2010 I turned my attention to generating income.

Since then, my husband traded a job he hated for one he loves, together we homeschool our kiddos and my full-time online income makes up the bulk of our income.

If you want to make money blogging, it takes time, creativity and hustle—a lot of all three—but it’s absolutely doable.”

Aidan Booth


“I hired a team in the Philippines who started cranking out websites for me to the tune of 3 new sites PER DAY. I had full time writers, image designers, and website builders working together, I even had a ‘Project Manager’ who put the pieces of the puzzle together for me…

Eventually I had a whopping 1500+ websites, and although not all of them were monstrously profitable, I could afford the failures because the sites that DID work were printing money.

My “factory” was on a roll, and so was my business.”

Ramsay Taplin


“My name is Ramsay Taplin and I’m from sunny (ha!) Adelaide in South Australia. I’m 27 and work full time from home and have since my early 20’s when I sold one of my fitness blogs for around $20,000. That was the starting point for me when I realized that I could make this blogging thing work.”
