You probably already know that blogging for money is amazing and is one of the best things that happened in a lot of blogger’s lives.

Top 23 Highest Paid Bloggers

A lot of people still doubt blogging and think that it is not something serious to be making money with but let me tell you this one thing as a fact:

Bloggers make a lot of money.

And some bloggers are just killing it!

It’s shocking, yet so inspiring.

I get asked the same questions, a lot:

  • How much is “a lot”?
  • Are they real people or just some corporate promotional sites?
  • How do you know that they are not lying?
  • Do you know any of them personally?
  • Did they start as beginners?
  • etc.

Well…

I decided to put together an article to answer everyone who is interested in the income of bloggers and expose the digits of some of the most successful bloggers.

Well… that sounds a bit noncollegial.

No worries though…

A lot of these bloggers are sharing their reports publically on their blogs.

And some of them are my friends and they don’t mind… I asked :))

This list doesn’t involve some of the greatest (formally) blogs that are making millions per month for one reason – Those blogs are not playing with the same rules anymore.

I’m talking about blogs like:

  • Huffington Post– $41.6 million per month.
  • Endgadget– $3.95 million per month.
  • Moz– $3.74 million per month.
  • Perez Hilton– $3.44 million per month.
  • Mashable– $3.33 million per month.
  • CopyBlogger– $2.75 million per month.
  • TechCrunch– $1.87 million per month.

I put together a list that will get anyone interested – from relatively lower-income bloggers to big players.

Real people, real success, real income and real inspiration.

From 10,000 per month to  $100,100+

So, let’s start this list:
