10 Ways to Kill Off Your Perfectly Nice Blog

In 2012, Blogging.org interviewed 1,000 US-based bloggers to measure their “success.” They discovered:

  • More than 81% of the people who start a blog never earn $100 from it
  • Only 8% earn enough money blogging to support their families
  • 9% work 4-6 hours every day on their blogs and earn enough money to sustain their lifestyles
  • Less than 2% achieve “freedom” – defined as spending as little as 1-2 hours a day blogging from exotic locations and earning over $150,000 a year

Hmm… Look at that! 8% + 9% + 2% = 19% making money. 81% not making money.

Pretty close to that good old 80/20 rule, isn’t it?

For sure it makes me wonder how many dead or abandoned “zombie” blogs there are (nobody knows).

Doesn’t it make you wonder what the 20% are doing right?

Or does it make you more curious about what the 80% are doing wrong, so you won’t make the same mistakes?
