So we have reached out to 100 bloggers and asked them some basic questions about their blog including how much they earn in 2024 from their blog.

And in this survey, we are going to reveal all our findings.

Key Takeaways From The Survey

  • The average blogger who is blogging for 1-3 years earns an average of $1388/mo from their blog.
  • Bloggers with an average post count of 1000+ earn more than $8000 every single month from their blog.

About The Survey

So I was curious – how much are real bloggers actually making in 2023?

What niches earn the most? How many years does it take to make money blogging? What monetization methods are most popular?

To find out, I created a simple Google form survey and sent it out to bloggers asking them questions related to their blogging journey including their income.

Based on these insider details directly from real bloggers, I crunched the numbers and created some incredibly helpful analyses and graphs.

My goal was to uncover real data on blogging income potential in 2023. That way you can see what’s truly possible and learn some proven lessons from successful bloggers who are crushing it.

In this post, I’ll share the key survey results, including:

  • How does blog age impacts earnings
  • How does the number of posts affect your earnings?
  • When most bloggers make their first $1000/mo
  • And much more!

My hope is by seeing real income data from others, you’ll gain priceless insights on maximizing your own blogging business and income.

I will try to follow up with these bloggers from time to time to keep this information updated.

  • I am open to adding new people to this list, so if you are a blogger, no matter how much you are earning, you can still contribute to this list and help others learn from your data.

Interesting Figures


The below graph shows how the age of the blog directly affects the average monthly income and this makes sense as your blog keeps on getting older you gain authority and trust which results in more traffic and earnings.

1. This Online World

This Online World

Here are some questions that I asked from Tom:

When Did You Start Your Blogging Journey?

“I started blogging in January 2018. At the time, I was still in college and my blog was just a side hobby.

For the first two years, I published a post or two per week and was still learning about SEO and how to blog.

In my third and fourth year, I began taking blogging more seriously, and in my fifth year, I started blogging full-time.”

What’s Your Niche? and Why Did You Chose That?

“My niche is personal finance, and I mostly cover the gig economy, side hustles, and money-making apps or ways to make money online.

I cover these niches because my blog began as a way for me to document my own online income journey. Since then, it’s become a resource for people to find honest side hustle content.”

First, get that blog started and begin publishing content regularly. Optimize it but make sure you provide value with each post. Use SEO + Pinterest to grow your blog traffic (that’s both a short- and long-term formula for success).

Quick Blogging Tip By Kim

Think about one person you want to help — and focus on making content and products specifically for that person. Also, diversify your income streams as much as possible. This is seriously key. If one thing fails then you have other income streams to support you. Best of luck to you all.

Pick a nice big niche with a passionate audience. Stay away from YMYL niches as they are notoriously difficult to rank for. Then keyword research, links and a lot of quality content is your key to success. Good luck!

Quick Blogging Tip By Lucrezia

Don’t spread yourself too thin, particularly when it comes to social media. I see so many new bloggers trying to be everywhere—Instagram, Twitter/X, Pinterest, TikTok, you name it. While social media is important, it shouldn’t be your primary focus when you’re just starting out.

Instead, concentrate on the two pillars that will truly sustain your blog in the long run: SEO and Email Marketing.

So, invest time in learning the basics of SEO—keyword research, on-page optimization, and quality backlinks.

Start building your email list from day one. Use lead magnets, pop-ups, or whatever strategy aligns with your brand to entice visitors to subscribe.

Once they’re in, nurture that relationship. SEO and email marketing are the two channels that will not only drive consistent traffic but also help you build a loyal audience making it possible to turn your blog into a six-figure business.

Quick Blogging Tip By Cassie

Invest in a good blogging course/training. It will save you so much time! –Focus on SEO ASAP! – Just START! -Don’t stress about your niche if you don’t know what to write about.

Just start writing and see what you like to write about and what your audience responds well to. – Don’t overlook Pinterest for traffic. – Blogs are not dead.

They’re just more like niche sites now instead of online journals. That’s what social media is used for now.

You have to focus on what value you’re giving your reader. If you just want to journal your life, do that on social media.


The survey and income reports and tips shared by these 11 successful bloggers in 2023 highlight that blogging can still be a profitable business in the current era.

The bloggers profiled earn between $1000 to as high as $30,000+ per month by monetizing their content through a mix of display ads, affiliate marketing, digital products, sponsorships and other avenues – many achieving their first $1000+ month within 6-12 months.

Ad rates are strong as well, with networks like Mediavine and Raptive driving a $30 to even $50 RPM for some.

While social media gets more eyeballs, niche blogs continue to build loyal communities and drive solid income potential.

The keys remain regularly publishing high-quality, focused content that attracts and engages your target audience.

Then implementing various monetization strategies, diversifying income sources, and staying persistent through an initial slow build period.

But for those who stick with it, these bloggers prove blogging can still change lives and fund the lifestyle you desire.
