Are you curious about how much money bloggers actually make? Or perhaps you’ve just started a blog and want to know how much other bloggers in your niche are making?

Then you’re in the right place!

I’ve compiled a list of over 50 blog income reports in various niches to show you what’s possible in blogging.


You CAN Earn Money In Any Niche


The common misconception about blogging is that the only people who make money blogging, is the people who blog about blogging or who teach other people how to make money. That’s simply not true. While bloggers in the “make money blogging” niche tend to make a lot of money, it’s actually food bloggers who make the most money on average according to The Blog Millionaire.



With that said, these are just averages. There are a ton of people making money with their blogs in niches that weren’t even included in this study, like fashion and beauty bloggers (up to $17k /mo) and sewing bloggers (up to $13k /mo).

And the blogger who makes the most amount of money on this list? Well, it’s Sarah Titus with a monthly income of $240k+/mo, who makes her money through selling printables. Yes, printables.

So, if you’ve ever felt like you have to be in the marketing/make money niche to succeed as a blogger, I’m here to tell you that’s simply not true. With the right guidance, plan and vision, you can make money blogging in a niche that you’re actually passionate about.


So with that said, let’s jump into the blog income reports!

How Do All These Bloggers Make Money?


There are four main ways that bloggers make money: display advertising, selling their own products, sponsorships and affiliate marketing. Sponsorships are a great way to earn some extra money, but they’re not consistent and you can’t rely on them to make a living online.

Display advertising can be very lucrative if you have a lot of traffic coming to your blog. For food, parenting and christian blogs this is often their main source of income. For example, Lindsay from Pinch Of Yum made $52k from display advertising in this income report. However, she also had 4.2 million people visit her blog that month.

Selling your own products can also be lucrative, like Sarah Titus shows with her impressive $240k+ monthly income. In fact, almost all bloggers who make more than six-figures per year have at least one product that they’re selling, whether that’s an ebook, a course or something else. However, the catch here is that you need to be really in tuned with your audience to be able to create a product that they’ll love and want to pay money for. Otherwise, it could be a huge waste of time and effort.

If you want to know more about how to create, market and sell your own products successfully and make sure that you’re creating the right product for your audience, I really recommend the Six Figure Blogger course from Create & Go. This is an advanced course, which delves deep into cover copywriting, sales funnels, email marketing, and more. (It does not cover the basics of traffic or writing content, so if your main goal is to drive traffic, this isn’t for you.)


So, What About Affiliate Marketing?


Affiliate marketing is my favorite way of making money online, and it’s the same story for many other bloggers. Essentially, affiliate marketing means that you’re promoting other people’s products, and whenever someone buys a product through your links, you make a commission.

Affiliate marketing is how I first started to bring in consistent money blogging, and currently, about 80% (or $8,000+) of my income comes directly from affiliate marketing. Even bigger bloggers like Michelle from Making Sense Of Cents, who makes $100,000+ /mo from her blog, brings in a good chunk of her income through affiliate marketing:

If you are just starting out with affiliate marketing, I really recommend signing up to Amazon Affiliates. Amazon Affiliates is the reason that I was able to take my blog full-time. Before getting started with Amazon, I was making money here and there with sponsorships, but it was never consistent – it was always a few hundred here, a few hundred there.

As soon as I started taking affiliate marketing seriously and paid more attention to promoting products on Amazon, my income started to increase slightly. In a few months, I was able to take my blog from earning $69 per month to over $1,000. 

Amazon Affiliates is one of the best ways to start making consistent money blogging, but it’s not the only way to do so. If you want to learn more about how to make money using other affiliate platforms, I recommend checking out  Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing.

Michelle , the creator of the course has been making $50,000+ per month with affiliate marketing for years, so she definitely knows what she’s talking about.
