Most small PF bloggers such as myself don’t make much money from blogging. I would guess that last year I didn’t make minimum wage for the hours I put into blogging. I’m not sure since I didn’t keep track of how much time I spent on blogging. Making a return on my time invested isn’t much of a priority since I do this for fun more than for profit. I make most of my money from my blog Bank Bonuses. This blog is barely monetized but it still makes a profit since it costs me very little to run. This month has probably been my best money making month for blogging yet.
I’ve decided that for February I’m going to keep track of my hours spent blogging so I can calculate my hourly blogging wage. Then I’m going to see what I can do to increase my blogging income. Since I won’t be working the next few months any increase in blogging income will be helpful. I like having the home page of this blog ad-free though so I’m going to try to keep it that way or at least keep any ads as non-intrusive as possible. I’m open to any suggestions and I’d be interested in seeing if there are any other PF bloggers that share their income.
