How to Get Rich Blogging

There are a number of blogs out there–over half a million in fact. Many of these blogs are started with the naive intent to become rich and famous. Let’s famous it, we’d all love to get paid 6 figures (or even 3 figures) to play on the computer all day. After all, isn’t playing on the computer all that blogging amounts to?

So, for those of you who have yet to join the half a million of us dodo birds who spend our days tippy-tapping away at our computers, I’ve put together a few tips on how to become a famous blogger.

Be Famous. Start a Blog.

There are a number of blogs that are owned and operated by famous people. Not surprisingly, these blog have name recognition as soon as they’re started. They also have a group of dedicated followers and–if they’re lucky–a group of hardcore haters. Haters tend to raise pageviews by an unbelievable amount as they just can’t resist telling you how much you suck. Then your fans will tell them THEY suck–it will become a volley of insults. As a result, a war will breakout, your pageviews will soar, and you will become rich through advertising revenue. So, if you want to get rich blogging, it’s a great idea to be famous first.

Say Something Controversial.

As illustrated above, having a war start on your blog is very profitable. It’s also very stressful but it definitely can increase that ad revenue we’re all striving for. So, if you want to get rich blogging but you’re not famous and have no plans of becoming famous, say something controversial. Say it loud. Say it on your blog and then promote on platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr where they love controversy. This is basically how that “Tiger Mom” book made money, but in blog form. Really, who has time to write a book when you can put together 500 controversial words to make your millions?

Visit Every Blog in Creation, Leave a Comment.

There’s a phenomenon that is widely unknown outside the blogging community called “commenting back”. Essentially, if someone leaves a comment on your blog you are bound by a blood oath to go back to their blog and leave a comment. How can this get you rich? Simple: stop sleeping, comment on blogs all day, wait for those bloggers to return to your site to leave their obligatory “LOL”. Ad revenue soars, you make millions by making others feel obligated to you.

There you have it–the three get rich quickest schemes to making money blogging you’ll ever see. Hope you enjoy this invaluable advice. I’ll take 10% of your earnings.

    If a blogger that I read starts to post more advertising than actual content (TAKE MY E-CLASS, BUY THIS E-BOOK, USE THIS PRODUCT IT’S AWESOME, BUY THESE THINGS BASED ON MY ARTWORK) I’ll unsubscribe from the obnoxiousness.

  5. Or get lucky and get flamed – trolls bring high page views if you’re thick skinned enough to handle the insults. Sadly I don’t have any pay by page view adverts, otherwise I’d have made quite a bit of money the other week.

    I like controversy, and I think it’s okay to write rudely and spark controversy as long as it’s entertaining and honest. What’s the fun in blogging any other way?
