    I made a quick Blog a couple of days ago for the hell of it(out of boredom mostly). Made a few dozen posts, and submitted them to digg. Well 1 of them made front page...I should be rolling in dough right? Well not really...only made $7 with 6K hits.

    $7 per day = $210 a month..provided I get one front page article per day(far fetched)

    So by this formula, if you want $3,000 per month you need 86,000 hits per day...seems like a pretty heavy traffic for a blog.

    What?

    People make money from blogs with advertising (as I'm sure you know)

    If you've got good content and lots of return readers, you should be able to make some decent money. If I wasn't a complete retard when it comes to writing, I'd probably make some side cash with blogs - but..

    yeah you need repeat readers, but honestly when was the last time you repeat visited a blog? The only one on my list is techcrunch...but thats more of a newssource than a blog

    you need content that makes money, if you have a blog about cat toys the ads are gonna be about cat toys which won't give you that much per a click, but say if you have a blog about student loans and student credit cards and building credit you can make anywhere from a couple bucks a click with adsense or even 200 bucks per an action for having someone sign up for a credit card.

    They're too wise to it now. Back when digg first started getting big scoring $300 in one day from making the front page wasn't too farfetched.

    How do you get up on netscape?

    I have my blogs and its making some decent money for the little effort I put into it. A lot of it comes from being looked up on the Search Engines.. I do have an Amazon store that is picking up some steam.. Got to figure out what is making it happen and turn it into 20 of them.
