I never knew nor imagine the income potential via blogging until I started passively earn money recently. It has been such a beautiful and marvelous experience. Though the income is not as high as some of my part time or full time bloggers counterpart but I’m extremely glad for the blessing God gave me and my family.
When the salary is no longer sufficient to support us (believe me there are times we faced this), the blogging money comes very handy. I just go to the bank and clear, or can I say claim the Google Adsense money. The stronger the US dollar, the better for me, but not good for the country!!! The same goes to other making money opportunities that I’m participating in.
If you are new with blogging and expect to earn money as soon as possible, please don’t dream so. Making money via blogging requires a huge passion and spectacular amount of time for you to build and establish the foundation – just like cooking a huge meal for 500 people as you can see me in the photo up there… For me, it took about 2 years plus to reach my current position and earning. Cooking that curry meat took only 5 hours to complete the thermodynamic process, but the preparation before it must be considered too. I’m not going to stay comfortable at this level but I’m going to work my ass out to another higher level. I’m focusing on some smaller amount of blogs now, some of it is a join venture between me and a friend.
Despite of having and paying for an autoresponder, my time won’t allow me yet to make full use of the automatic making money machine.
The answer is very simple. “Time” is not on my side. As some of you have known, I’m married, have 3 precious beautiful kids, have a career that I dream off, currently pursuing my Ph.D in Chemical Engineering and also preparing my project paper for my professional engineer status. The time allocated for online blogging and affiliate marketing is minute. That’s fine for me and that’s why I try hard to manage and optimize my time. So, if it’s meant to build an online business, I’ll create and establish a passive one and I know blogging can provide me that financial boost and security (anti recession).
If God spare me some more extra time, I’ll spend it to construct and launch my own affiliate business. I got one in the line but I have not launch it yet. Need to improve few things before it can be officially released. A successful affiliate business will ensure more wealth faster than blogging. Integrating blogging and affiliate marketing will be a complete combination of financial fire power that everybody will want to achieve. Combined, both platform will be semi automatic passive income and that is what all of us should target for.
So, what about you? I’m not sure but I would love to know your plans. I’m not aiming to be a blogger celebrity or a famous affiliate marketer. It’s enough to be an underground person who have thick pockets and invest his money in high performing mutual funds + golds.
