How much other bloggers earn? Or how long do they work?

By M.Dan | 9 min read

Many bloggers ask themselves,

"OK, but how much other bloggers earn? And how long do they work? ".

This is really a great question, especially since we have a few statistics available.

So I contacted several bloggers I'm in touch with, asking them what turnover they earn each month from their blogs and how much time they work there each week.


From our research, the average time is 5.15 hours per week, the time to write articles, adding other necessary activities such as responses to comments, blog advertising, the average is less than 10 hours per week.


Now let's see how much bloggers get for their work


I will show you some responses from other bloggers

Cate F.: 18,000 $ per month, 15 hours per week

Niche: Internet Marketing

Created Date: August 21, 2016


  • different tasks depending on my current list: about 1 to 2 hours
  • replies to emails + social networks and comments: around 30 minutes
  • I write or work on my videos: 1 hour, on average, 
  • I have to work on the blog about fifteen hours a week.
  • I'm not working on the weekend.

The rest of the time, I read and take notes. In fact, I spend most of my time with it.

I have strict rules, without which I would work three times more:

No instant messaging, neither on Facebook, nor on Gmail, nor elsewhere (except Skype with family and friends), no phone (except relatives and friends outside the workplace). Everything is solved by e-mail.

I do not remain connected non-stop to emails and social networks. I consult them once I have finished my to-do list and once in the evening (it varies sometimes, but I try to comply). - I empty the boxes and leave.

As we can see, the turnover generated by bloggers in this article is highly variable.

However, there are some important features:

  • Their main blog requires only part-time work.
  • They sell products on their blog and this is the main source of their income.
  • Considering the time they spend on their blog, the turnover is quite interesting, even if it is an extra income. Most of them chose to use their time available to start on other projects (most often other blogs).
  • Nearly everyone has started their blog part-time, along with another activity, and this blog offers them exceptional geographical freedom
