How much do bloggers make? I can understand if these questions are bouncing around in your brain because they were bouncing around in mine when I first started.

Well, it varies. Some make $0 per month. Some make $10,000 or more per month and others have even started a business blogging. If your thinking of blogging here is my cost-revenue breakdown.

I blog as a hobby and it is not my full-time job. For me, I started in 2020 and in the same year, I earned roughly $10 per month through advertisements (Adsense). The additional income is still better than nothing and my advertisement revenue is growing each month.

I do not pay for hosting as I am self-hosting. I paid $1,200 to $2,000 for the server. The purpose of self-hosting using my server at home is to maintain my portfolio of websites.

There are other costs involved; like domain name registration. It costs roughly $20 per annum to register a domain name. Blogging to me is my way of expressing myself and a way to spend my time improving my writing skills.
