What is it Like to be a Top Blogger?

No matter what you end up doing, working online is a fantastic opportunity and no matter what you end up doing, working online is a fantastic opportunity and a great way to enjoy more freedom and potentially higher earnings.

If you work online, that means you can work from anywhere in the world, that you can set your own pace to work at and that you can choose your own salary. But while working online is always great, there are a lot of different forms that this can take and not all of them are made equal.

In other words, some online businesses are more profitable and more enjoyable than others and if you’re working to provide a service such as web design, copywriting or coding, then essentially you won’t be doing anything all that different from working for an employer.

Clients mean deadlines and they’re essentially very similar to bosses! And then there are those hustles that you can get into online. Things like selling eBooks or working as an affiliate to promote someone else’s ebook.

These are passive income business models that will earn you cash while you sleep or while you travel the world.

They’re low input and high yield – in many ways they represent the very best of both worlds and they’re an ideal choice for those looking to earn money quickly. But let’s face it, these business models don’t have all that much ambition attached.

Selling an ebook is not exactly changing the world, especially if it’s not even an ebook that you made yourself! What’s more, is that selling ebooks aren’t going to get you all that rich.There’s definitely a cut off point at which these ‘get rich quick’ schemes stop being profitable.There’s a ceiling that limits how much you can earn and it’s also not particularly exciting or rewarding.

To be honest, a lot of people who make money online using these sorts of methods aren’t all that likely to actually believe in the products they sell. Essentially this feels like scamming people in order to make money, which isn’t a great feeling.

This is why I firmly believe that becoming a top blogger is THE best way to earn a lot of money online. In this post, I’ll be looking at what that entails and how you can get there. But first, let’s take a look at why blogging is the perfect way to make money online.

The Reality of Blogging 

Firstly, being a top blogger means generating a passive income. You’ll have a website that will earn money for you but you won’t need to put in a lot of daily work in order for that to happen. This isn’t like writing or web design where you are getting paid for the time you put in.

Here, you have done your work up front and thus you can kick back and relax while the money comes in from adverts, digital product sales and sponsors.

That’s not to say that there’s no ongoing work mind you; you will still need to write the occasional blog post and do some promotion – it’s just that it is up to you how and when you do this. And the best part is that this is a highly rewarding way to work and make money online.

You’ll find that you don’t dread doing it because you’ll be writing about a topic that you really enjoy and you’ll be doing things that you’re really proud of.

Imagine if your day’s work involved stopping off at a coffee shop somewhere, getting yourself a nice hot drink and then leaning back into your chair while you type up an article on a subject you find fascinating. Then there’s the fans and the adulation.

Being a top blogger is effectively like being a celebrity: People will read what you write and they’ll leave comments and respond.

It’s an amazing feeling when you write a post that you’re really proud of and that you poured your heart into and then you get emails from people who read it and found it fascinating.

It’s an even better feeling when you stumble onto a forum where people are discussing your ideas or recommending your posts!

You’ll be an authority in the niche you love and you’ll get to spend all your time reading and writing about it! And the potential earnings for a top blogger are huge. Really the only limit is your ambition.

Take a look at someone like Pat Flynn, Tim Ferriss or Mario Popova and you’ll see that you can become really very wealthy from a big blog by selling products, by working with sponsors or even just from Google AdSense.

What’s more, is that a blog can serve as a platform to something else. This can be a tool that you use to become a published author, to get your own TV show or to launch another business. That might sound unbelievable but I’m absolutely serious! Just take a look at someone like Aaron Marino (Alpha M) who started out with a style blog and now runs his own line of men’s grooming products!

I can also attest to this myself.

I have a (fairly) big blog and thanks to that, I got contacted by a large YouTube channel and asked to make videos with them. I now get sent expensive electronic gadgets to review and get to keep them, while the videos I make for them get hundreds of thousands of views in the first day! I even got a book contract and am currently on my way to becoming a published author.

Being a big blogger is an entirely different thing from other forms of making money online. It’s a chance to get rich yes but also to get famous for doing something you love, to make a big difference in a given community or niche and generally to do something that actually matters.

If you like the sounds of that and you think the blogging lifestyle is for you then keep reading. This book is going to show you how to make it happen and we’re going to go to some completely different places than most other books on this subject.

    This is very inspiring. I often base blog success on the number of followers someone has, and clearly I was wrong regarding this assumption. I often see blogs with only a few followers, and yet they are very successful bloggers. I feel like I am definitely missing something. I have yet to monetize my blog but hope to monetize it someday.
