  2. Real life success stories are the bestest! I can’t wait to start making some money on my sites too. It seems like it takes forever, and it’s so hard to keep pushing when there’s zero results, but I guess it takes time.

    I love to see the earnings breakdown for each blogger, but you know what else I would love to see in there? The month/year that the blog was started…just to give new guys like me a realistic idea of the amount of time and effort it takes to reach these numbers.

    I guess I could visit each site and go to their archives and just backtrack to the first post, but having it right here on the list would be pretty handy.

    Well, either way, thanks Court and all the bloggers for sharing these income reports. You have no idea how encouraging it is to see that people can still make real income online. Well, then again you probably do have an idea, because I’m sure most of you can still remember what it was like at the beginning.

    Aloha, Chris

    1. Hi Chris,

      Its the storys that are truly inspiring! But I get what you mean about wanting to get a general overview of the growth.

      My first month of actual focus on my blog was in August 2012 where it made $605.28, In November 2012 it did $9315.59 which is quite a jump in a short amount of time ( the 4 income reports and exactly what I did are here )

      HOWEVER what you have you bear in mind is that is the culmination of over a decade of experience with the web reaching all the way back to when I was doing a paper round just to rent a server so people in my gaming community could share videos with each other – money was not an incentive then.

      But really all I have done is nothing more complicated than finding out what my audience wants, creating it and giving it to them for free via forums.

      1. Woah, Matthew, that’s outstanding progress!

        I totally get the importance of all the work you put in to get to this point. Thanks for the link too; I’ll go check it out today.

        Congrats on your blog’s success. I hope things continue to scale upwards for you.

        Aloha, Chris

  3. Wonderful article and very helpful. i write a lot of different things on my blog “Muzzle Your Mouse”. One of the favorites (of the few who’ve read it” is “The Helpful Hubby and The Soaking Cycle”. I will follow “TheBlogBuilders” with great anticipation.

  4. I’ve been following Pat and Adsense Flippers ( they changed their name to Empire Flippers ). I can only dream of reaching anything in that range. It’s still all a mystery to me. Maybe I’ll make the list someday — and hit the lottery too!!!! 😉

  5. The direct inquiry console relic almost how to get endorse unite to the website which are actually reusable and competent in rising the ranks. The reply is that when you are thinking for backlink business for a specific website, you should conclude the websites which are related to the enclosure of your website.

  6. Do you guys think that blogging still works today? Is it worth to start a brand new blog in todays web and hope that it will grow viral? I wish I could be certain of it!.. if you guys think I should try and it is possible… let me know! I used to have my account at the keyword academy several years ago and learned a lot from them! Wish there was another academy like that! Court and Mark! I miss you guys.. wish there was a way to talk to you all!
