Making money from blogging

July 2013 has been a fantastic month for me so far. Both my career and blog reached new milestones during this month. Firstly, I have been promoted. This is the first promotion in my job journey and I am so happy that my hard work for the previous years had paid off.

Thinking back, those extra duties and late nights at office were worth the efforts. With the promotion increments, my financial situation definitely improved a lot, given that I am the sole breadwinner. The next step for me is to continue reducing my housing and car loans.

Secondly, I am pleased to inform my readers that one of my articles was featured in Yahoo Finance! on 3rd July. It was a pleasant surprise because I was not informed prior to the article being published and I happened to chance upon it. Furthermore, this article was written quite sometime ago last year. So I didn’t really expect it to be featured by any online media companies. Nonetheless, it was a form of recognition and made me feel encouraged to keep blogging. Hopefully more of my articles would be featured by Yahoo Finance!


Lastly, I made $1000 from my blog, SG Wealth Builder, last month. Over the years, I had several assignments from vendors who got to know me through my blog. In the past, these assignments paid me very little money but the offer for my latest assignment was quite attractive, even though I must say it took up a lot of my time and energy.

I accepted the offer because I see it as a challenge for me to apply my writing skill. The process has been rewarding because in addition to earning some pocket money, I also learned something new through the extensive reading and research.
I used to think that I can make money from blogging through affiliate marketing. But apparently, this doesn’t really work for me.
Yeah, there are many bloggers out there who claim they made money from affiliate marketing. But unless you have millions of unique visitors to your blog, it is very hard to earn a decent income every month. In my next article, I will touch on how to make real money from blogging. Stay tune.
