If Your Blog Is Good… It Will Make Money For You (okay then!)

I was asked this by a few people in the last few weeks and I had to think a bit before I answered this:  If you write a good blog, which has good blog posts, this must mean that you make a lot of money online.  This also means that you will have a lot of people who would buy your blog.

Okay then.  I have a few points to make on the whole assumptions that these emails make:

1) No, not all really good blogs make money.  Now, I do make indirect money with my blog, as in I get freelance work with this blog, which makes me money, and then there is Google, but it is not a big money maker.

2) A good blog post means nothing in terms of money.  When you write a good blog post this isn’t an automatic ” good blog post means money.”  I would say that people writing comments is a lot more fun than getting keywords and others things, but still, you can have a great blog post, and it will mean nothing if you don’t keep on going.

3) Selling a blog??: Not my thing, so sorry I am not selling this blog, I enjoy writing and the challenges it bring way too much. Even if you have no money in terms of the blog you write and publish you are still a writer… end of story.

So if your blog is good… it will make money for you… ah okay then, but don’t count on it…

    If a blog is very good, but it is unique to the inidividual ( ie. it is about the blogger), even if it's very poopular, it may not be saleable. Because the readers follow the person; like reading about the person, and replacing the blogger with someone else would take away the very element that makes the blog popular.

    I guess you would first have to define what 'good' means. Then, you would need to define what 'making money' means. Finally, you would have to do the math … only to discover to your horror that this does not compute. Good writers and struggling artists do not necessarily make for SEO extraordinaires!

    You have to do what you love and let the money flow…or not. It's like lots of people want to act, but few make big money acting. You couldn't write just for the money, you have to write for the love of writing.
