Can Bloggers Strike it Rich?

They just might be able to. I don’t know about huge sums of money but blogging might just be one of the best wages per minute out there. I currently run two blogs in my spare time. This one and a gaming site that that keeps me young at heart. Dubbed Infendo, the site is averaging close to 35,000 unique visitors per month (around 1,200/day) and growing very fast. While this is small peanuts compared to larger blogs, it’s a start.

According to the below Wired article, it takes about 10,000 visitors per day to make decent money off ad sales. By decent I mean around $2,500 per month, which isn’t bad considering blogging only takes about an hour a day but you gotta be consistent with postings. The Wired article is very insightful and highly recommended.

Weblogs inc salaries – said to be the Walmart of blog salaries.

Gawker Blog salaries are said to be anywhere from $3,000-10,000/month due to their very high traffic. Some of their blogs get close to 6 million unique visitors per month though. That means lots of ad sales.
