How to Get Through Low Revenue Periods

4 People Who Got Rich Blogging

Editor’s note: This post was written by Larry Alton, an independent business consultant specializing in social media trends, business, and entrepreneurship. Follow him on Twitter and LinkedIn.

When you were an angsty teen posting on LiveJournal, you probably never thought your love for blogging could turn into a very lucrative career one day. However, there’s more than one way to be successful at blogging: You can become a famous blogger with throngs of followers, all based on your skills/personality/talents or a mixture of them all, or you can learn to monetize blogs.
