Earning Money through Blogging?

There are many myths regarding blogging and that "bloggers can earn a lot of money through blogging" tops up the list. Second on the list but closely related to the first one is that "it's easy to make money online". However, these two statements are myths and merely the myths.

Why do people hype?

Many people have benefited a lot by hyping their gains like "I earn 5 digit income working at home", even before they make a fraction of that gain. Let me make you clear about this: Most of the online businesses are profitable only when they get a good traffic (visitors). So, these sleek marketers say that they gained this and that in advance to get people's attention. The people who are looking for the ways to make money easily get attracted towards their site. In this process, they buy the products, click on other articles (and accidentally on ads) and affiliate links at the hyping site. Only after a bunch of such eager visitors (high traffic) start doing these kinds of activity, that the site owners start making some bucks. Their hyping in advance is simply to lure visitors attention.

What if they didn't hype?

I am almost certain that nobody would give a damn care to their sites. People are always looking for an easy way to make money. Thus, if someone says that it requires hard work to make good bucks people won't be fascinated by it. That's why these sleek marketers use these types of hyped advertisements to draw people's attention promising everything they can when in fact the reality is a different story. They can't deliver the promises so easily because  to do the task that really pays off well requires you to have some good skills already at your hand. Then it's just a matter of monetizing. Otherwise, if you start from the scratch, then you'll have to learn a lot and work very hard. Almost a year  will be lost in figuring out how to make money online.

So, it's our weakness that the marketers are targeting to get us buy their products (which are, most of the time, not worth the price). Don't let them grab your attention by these fancy titles. Instead stay back and be prepared to work hard. There's almost never an easy way to earn money legally. Please don't dream about it innocently without knowing the whole story.

Why are such "Tags" a mere hype?


  • People who earn good amount of money generally don't advertise how much they earn. They prefer to keep it private even if you ask them. So, if someone says that he's earning too much then he's just trying to grab your attention. My advice: don't fall for it!


  • If earning money was so simple then shouldn't we all have been very rich? If earning money is easy why wouldn't everyone earn enough money for themselves! 

  • If money is made easily it means all the hard working fellows are foolish. Why should they bother to work hard? People mostly work to earn money. Earning money is easy, if you take the online route. So, working hard is completely irrational and nonsense given these circumstances. Can this ever become a reality?


  • Again if it were really simple to earn money online why do internet marketers create 50 sites? Do you think creating 50 sites for niche marketing is an easy task? If you think then you're welcome. In reality your 9 to 5 job is much better than online marketing comparing the pay and the effort you put for it.

So, let's not say more. This is what I have learnt by experience. If you are prospecting to be a simple blogger, then do it for other reasons, like  fun, learning, self publishing, sharing, networking, writing, etc. There are thousands of reasons for you to blog. Again there are thousands of way to make money online. However, it's never easy to make money blogging. If someone says it's easy then never, I repeat this, never, believe him or her.

  1. In some aspects, earning money is really not easy. But if we have a passion and perseverance in doing it, it will not be too hard to earn money from home.
