21 Top Earning Blogs – Here’s How To Make Money As A Blogger

As announced by Google, approx. 5,400 people a month search for the term: How To Make Money Blogging or How to Make Money Online as a Blogger.

Hence, I thought I would do some research on the main 21 top blogs and how they make money online, so that I could report it to you here. Moreover, there are tons of more examples of success stories out there.

The internet is loaded with people quietly making a stunning income with their own online blogs or websites. A large portion of these websites are which we never thought that it existed, but visible online to those creating a blog.

Some of the online blogs I found while doing my research about this article are equally famous now “probably well-known to you” already, but they all started small from a scratch, regardless as whatever type of blog you have a question about what is a blog.

For example, here in Nigeria, you should know about Linda Ikeji blog, the dispute that arose earlier from BlogSpot owned by Google. Linda Ikeji’s blog was shut down on October 8, 2014, but restored on October 10, 2014 around midnight by Google for undisclosed reasons. Let’s not go there now. I reserve this for another topic

I enjoy looking through records like this; they motivate me to work harder and help keep me roused towards my own particular goals of $10k a month for this site. I would equally love to get comments from different bloggers like you, or aspiring blogger in the comment section below.

Browse through the lists and get motivated. Keep in mind when you are prepared to begin your own kind online blog.

A quick disclaimer before we proceed forward…

A number of these websites in this list have been evaluated or given a “best guess” so they are likely not 100% right. But, I have combined the estimations to give you some thought of the capability of this kind of online business.

In other words, if you think you have any more accurate data, please tell me and I will try my best to keep this list updated for you.
