How Much Money Do Bloggers Make?
Posted on June 27, 2007Paula Neal Mooney has a big list the includes the earnings of a number of bloggers. You probably saw the USA Today article describing how tech bloggers Michael Arrington (TechCrunch) and Om Malik (GigaOm) have built businesses out of their blogs. If you are curious about what other bloggers make you should check out Paula's list of blogger pay.
The list isn't all-inclusive. For example, you will find Michael Arrington on Paula's list (it says he makes $1.8 million in ad revenue annually) but you won't find the blog-related income for Om Malik or Michelle Malkin. However, the list does provide the earnings for a wide range of bloggers from Mario Lavandeira (PerezHilton.com) who makes $468,000 - $832,000 to Lucia Liljegren (The Knitting Fiend) who makes about $3,000 a year from Google ads. Some of the annual blog earnings for other bloggers on the list include Darren Rowse ($360,000 or more), John Chow ($126,712), Randy Brown: Grown Up Geek ($75,492), Thilak Raj Rao: Tech Buzz and Blog Talks ($36,735) and Matt Coddington: Net Business Blog ($12,000). The income is wide ranging but this is a long list of bloggers earning a good income or good supplemental income from their blogging activities.
