Blog incomes?

Recommended Posts

Depends on a lot of factors. Most blog ads are sold CPM (cost per mille), so you get paid per thousand clicks or impressions.

My personal blog's ads (totally non-fundie related... eek.) are sold through an agency and we get paid a fee per impression (1,000 page views). I'd rather not say what our rate or traffic is, but considering the amount of traffic I assume some of the fundie bloggers have, it can be a significant income. I know many non-fundie bloggers who make their living from blogging and it can be a pretty healthy income at that—almost 6-figures for a few that I know.

A blog like "The Pioneer Woman" makes a ridiculous amount of money. A modest "this is my life, I made bread today" blog with a few followers, not so much.

Yep, the New Yorker estimated Pioneer Woman's income at something like $800,000 per annum.

Obviously my blog is nowhere near her size, but we still pad our income a bit with it, and I'm sure most of the fundie families make about the same, if not more.

The general rule of thumb is you can make $.50-$1 per 100 unique visitors (not page views) to a blog if you use an ad service like BlogHer. If you have a large reader base, like blogs like Pioneer Woman, you can make significantly more if you broker your own ads.

Ad services tend to be on a pay per click type arrangement, which means you only make money if someone clicks on your advertisement. Ads you broker yourself tend to be on a cost per 1000 impressions basis.

Not totally true. We're with Federated Media (a big agency) and we're paid per 1,000 impressions, not visitors or clicks. Obviously it varies though.

      Just had my anatomy scan today. Would it be awful if we revealed the sex of number 2 At silly girl's first birthday party? We have the envelope, I just don't know If we want to open it before or during her party or give it to my sister in law to bake the color into her cake? I don't want to feel like I'm taking attention off of her

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!

      I don't always make good decisions for myself due to severe depression but I did today actively decide not to do something that might have been detrimental for me and am very proud of myself.

      Well, this is weird. At some point, recently, I broke my wrist. I had to get a Dexa-scan today (put it off for years) and along with some bone loss, damn I had it a few minutes ago… the results said, “Fracture risk is moderate, and the patient has a significant wrist fracture. Treatment is advised.”  my left wrist aches a little but not near as much as my back, feet, knees or fingers, damn RA. I have no idea how it happened. I haven’t fallen in 2 years, haven’t banged or bumped…  the dr will call tomorrow and we’ll get  this straightened out.
