Gave me the confidence to leave a well paying job to pursue my dreams. It's what everybody who doesn't love their job wants.
Quote from: PandaAtlanta on December 08, 2018, 08:54:56 AMSam, these are the two source: Wow! You must be in the top .5% to 1% among the pro-bloggers. I remember a poster on FS stating that blogging is an extremely difficult path to glory.. after seeing these stats, I believe him. Sam, you have certainly overcome very difficult odds to become successful in your industry. I really respect you that you were are able to focus on your ONE THING for almost 10 years. This is where I believe most entrepeneurs fail as they can't focus and sustain over a long period of time. A sane person would give up if the business they are operating is not their passion and core competence, especially during major setbacks and challenges. I am genuinely happy for you.-PandaStat Sources:1. https://convertkit.com/reports/blogging/money/2. https://www.blogtyrant.com/new-blogging-statistics/

Making a significant income blogging is not an easy task, but once you've "gotten lucky" through continually putting out content and being relentless about SEO and social media, I would gander that it's a lot easier to make a significant income blogging than to make a significant income doing most other things.To use the income points in the survey, of course it's "easier" (in terms of getting there) to make $10,000 or $30,000 or $80,000 in hourly or salaried employment. In some professions that don't even require more than a bachelor's -- engineering, finance, etc. -- $150,000 can come relatively easily as well.But is that really "significant" income? Of course it's all relative, but I'd say that a high multiple six- or even seven-figure net income would be considered "significant" by most folks reading this blog. And these income levels are pretty much unattainable for the average person in corporate employment (apart from very specific career paths that probably have to be planned for very early on in life).For most, the only way to make north of, say, $700,000 per year is via your business, and I would say that blogging -- or Internet businesses in general -- is one of the easier businesses to scale once you've "gotten lucky." That said, the entire Internet marketing space is quite risky, what with the low barrier to entry, constant Google algorithm updates, and increasing ad costs, so while sure an Internet business may be easier to scale, there is probably a lower degree of security than in many other businesses.
