You Can Make $1000 Easily From Blogging

“How much can I earn from writing paid posts?”

I have been asked the question above a few times now. Writing paid posts is one of the many ways to make money from blogging. It can be one of the most rewarding. On the other hand, it can also hurt your blog. There are pros and cons to everything in life. You just need to find that balance.

Anyway, let’s get back to the question — How much can a person earn from writing paid posts?

This is a hard question to answer accurately. Everyone’s situation is different. There are a few factors that determine how much you can make from writing paid posts. Some of them include your Google PageRank, Alexa ranking, Technorati ranking, number of blogs and the level of determination that you have.

Generally speaking, the higher your PageRank is, the more you can earn. That is because many advertisers are willing to pay you more for writing a post if you have a higher ranking. Some people with high PR rank can easily make anywhere from $100 to $200 or more per post. It takes a lot of time and effort to gain that kind of ranking though.

To give an overall idea on how much a person can make, below is an example of what a person needs in order to make $1000 (which is equivalent to about RM3,300).

  • Two blogs with at least one having a PR 1 ranking
  • Write an average of three paid posts per blog per day

Advertisers pay at least $5 per post written. The average they pay is around $7. If you are lucky, you will be able to snatch a few jobs that pay anything from $10 to $30 per post.

To avoid complicated arithmetic, let’s assume:

  • you get paid $7 per post
  • you write 3 posts per blog per day
  • there are 30 days in a month
  • you rest on Sundays and on the first and third Saturdays of the month (damn syiok right?)
  • therefore, you “work” only 24 days per month

1 blog: $7 X 3 post = $21 per day X 24 days = $504 per month
2 blogs: $504 X 2 = $1008 per month

See how “easy” it is to make $1000 per month simply by blogging? Don’t forget that you may occasionally get some high paying jobs in between. However, there may be days where you may write less or something. So let’s not take those into account.

Since it is so “easy” to make $1000 a month blogging, does that mean I am already making $1000 a month now? How I wish. Unfortunately, there are external factors that may affect a person’s earnings. An example would be laziness. :-P

Of course, it is also important to balance between your paid and normal posts. If you concentrate more on the money and neglect your readers, you may just end up losing some loyal readers.

    Wrong!

    to make $21 per day, you have to write 6 post assuming it is a one interim post TOS. Some like blogitive needs 2, so you have to write 9 posts.

    Assuming again that it is a $7 opp. The actual money is only $3.50 per post or even less. It’s a total bad deal. So don’t say it is easy to make $1000 by writing those $7 posts. You have to write a minimum of 288 posts per month.

    I tried to reason this with Lilian and I think she angry with me already. Dunno why. But that is the hard fact if you want to make that money.

    That’s why I damn pissed with my PR Demotion. I easily make $40 with one post in my PR5 blog. Then I can goyang kaki oredi. Now?

    There are some opps that pays little but requires high PR. I don’t look at those though, and do not know how many there are. Occasionally, there are $7 opps available for PR 1 blogs.

    @Ah Pek
    LOL. Calm down. I get what you mean but we are looking at this situation from different angle.

    I look at it that they pay us to write those post and do not include those interims that we need to write. You shouldn’t calculate interims in the equation or else it is will just get messy. In my opinion, calculating the interims into the equation means that your whole blog is the “made for PPP” type.

    To me, I am only paid to write one post, not one sponsored + interims. Interims are my own views. Therefore, it shouldn’t be included.

    It’s not like you get to have unlimited opps to write. unless you have a blog with relatively high in PR (above 3) where you have more choice of opps to write.
    gaining high PR is much more difficult now.
    I don’t think the term ‘Easily’ suitable in making money from blogging

    Not only external factors that influence whether you can reach $1000 per month or not, sometimes platforms like PayPerPost have dry patch which may last for three days.

    I am in the middle on the pros and cons of paid posts writing. I have been more conscience with paid posts since I started blogging on a .com domain.

    As I don’t have a high PR, I just write what they offer and I don’t make blogging as my full time jobs. So for now, it doesn’t bother me how much they pay for a post. Anyway, good one for introducing paid post to fellow bloggers.

    @ipohchai & Wayne Liew
    Well, the trick is not to rely on one company only. There are so many companies where you can get jobs for writing paid posts. When one dries out for a day or two, there should be jobs from others. On the other hand, there will be days (many of them) where you get more than the required posts per day (3×2). So, in the end, it evens out.

    The truth is, there is not EASY money making opportunities in this world. When I used the word “Easiliy”, it meant that the target can be achived, if you put effort in it. If just goyang kaki, sure cannot lah.

    I heard that WidgetBucks works quite well for some bloggers too. Never heard oft TNX though :-P I will take a look at them. Thanks.

    @Nicholas
    Yeah, people can also do this for fun. There are jobs for PR 0 and 1 blogs too. I am living on them. *sigh*

    Previously, I was using PR checker. Now, I installed a Firefox plugin and the toolbar displays the pagerank of the page that I am currently visiting. If you are using FF, you should install SearchStatus.

    @JC Carvill
    Welcome. Good luck in your money making journey.

    Well, there are some days where I manage to grab 5 or more opps. Sometimes I get $10-30 opp. We shouldn’t look day by day but throughout the month. Sure got some days earn more and other days earn less. My “concept” is that as long as you consistent with the plan, work as the opps come, it is possible to hit $1000 in a month.
