Target For Passive Income When You Blog
What is You Reason for blogging?
I presume it may start because of your passion to write (like me). Some may want to have a platform to channel his or her feeling, emotion (or sometimes anger). So blog to promote or let others know about his or her business(es). Some even blog because his or her the desire to make money from blog(s).
Income Category in Blogging Context
If I can divide the income category into 2 huge groups, it will surely be (1) Active Income (2) Passive Income.
In case some of you don’t know, Active Income is when you earn money when you work. In other words, if you work you get paid, if you don’t work you don’t get paid. In the case of making money via blogging, the active income can be clearly visualize when you actively participate in programs such as Pay Per Post, Blogvertiser, Sponsored Reviews and others. This means that when you do the work such as writing articles to review a product or service, you will be paid. However, if you don’t do any review, you won’t get paid. As simple as that. For me, I don’t really focus on active income. However, once in a while, if somebody offers me attractive package, I will consider it. Sometimes active income can be quite lucrative. So, don’t underestimate the power of active income.
Passive Income in the other hand is a process when you earn money after you do a “work once“. Then, if you stop doing the work, you will still earn the money. The concept of “work once” is quite subjective. Let’s consider few examples to better illustrate several scenarios of passive income.
If we look it in the context of an author of a book, the author may spend 4 months writing a fiction book. Then when the book is publish, he will get the royalty (income from selling the book). After the first printing of the book is sold out, comes the second batch of printing. The author will then get royalty income again from his book sold from the second edition. The process will repeat as long there is a demand for his book. If i look at this in the context of a singer, he will sing the a song in a studio for maybe one day (consider it to be a single release), then the CD or tape will be out for sale. As long as people buys his CD and tapes, he will earn money. In the case of the author, work once for him is a 4 months work and for the singer, it is one day work.
What about the context of blogging and earn passive income? The time allocated to blog may differ from each blogger. There are blogger who spend 2 to 4 hours per day blogging while there are bloggers who spend 7 hours per weak only to blog. It depends basically on the bloggers capacity and capability to manage their blogs. In order for a blog to starts generating passive income, a great deal of work must be carried out before ripping of the fruit. That means, a blog must be packed with great unique informative contents, have tonnes of back links and thousands of visitors before it starts generating money from ads. So, if we compare a bloggers effort of doing the “work once”, compared to the writer and singer, it will definitely be different. The bloggers definition of doing the work once may take up 1, 2, 3 or more years to complete. When the blog (let say the blog is Blog A) is established, the blogger spend lesser time on blog A and starts a new blog project (Blog B). At this point of time, Blog A has probably generating USD$1000 per month from various types of advertisements. Since Blog A is already so powerful and established, the blogger can spend maybe 1 hour per weak in that blog (which is minimum) but continues earning $1000 monthly. Isn’t that cool?
I love to blog because my passion of writing and sharing but at the same time I want to establish a great passive income stream. I can blog at my own time. Nobody controls me. I don’t have to report to anybody. I don’t have to entertain clients or speak with people. I just blog whenever I feel like it. I accidentally realize that I can earn passive income via blogging in the form of Google Adsense, Text-Link-Ads, TNX, Linkworth, Infolinks, Revresponse and few others.
So, after reading my brief article, what do you think of your choice of blogging income? Active Blogging Income or Passive Blogging Income? The choice is yours.
