    Came across this article today (looks like it was from 2014) from someone's blog.
    Code:
    http://www.financialfreedomblogger.com/top-bloggers-how-do-bloggers-make-money/
    Obviously an intriguing article. However, the blogger does not provide her sources. I know some of those listed do provide (or did provide) details on their income, but I haven't looked them all up (maybe they all do?).

    Under $20K per month seems low IMHO - hardly worth "guru" status. I know that seems like a lot of coin, but hardly "breakout", get rich quick, stuff, IMHO (at least for those living in the "western" nations). Maybe it is just me, but I'm looking to drive $1M-$2M per year, or better, net.

    So, for those who in the "know" are these in the right ballpark, are they sandbagging it, or is it hype for some of the individuals listed?

    So where is the fashion bloggers? And EmpireFlippers, Pat Flynn, etc. doesn't really make money just of their blog but from their whole business. Does that count? If so, where are the bloggers that run multiple businesses netting a few hundred thousands per month?

    List doesn't seem to be accurate at all.

    Everyone know Charlie Floate is the richest blogger. Because anything the top blogger makes, he just stick 30k on top of that number.

    The fact that Huffington Post is not owned by a single person but by AOL since 2011, is just proof its just another bs article by someone looking to get attention.

    Honestly who gives a twopenny fuck what some fucking idiots on the internet are pretending to be making.

    They are all full of shit. They survive and drive traffic by pretending to know how to generate money for their readers, if they were honest and said "oh this month I earned £1200 and had to spend £13,500 on lawyers to save me from child porn charges" they would probably not be as popular as others.

    If I was rich enough I would gather several of these guru bloggers and ship them off to syria.

    Pretty sure young Charles used the duty solicitor after having to pay £25,000 bail which UK citizens don't pay.

    Most of that is fluff, I bet if you looked at their tax returns few make what they claim to make. If they dont brag about how good they are no one else will or even notice them.

    Just because something is listed on a tax return,doesn't mean that a person didn't make anything higher than that.

    Exactly, I miss 90%+ of my rent boy earnings off my tax bill. And you don't pay tax on the 79p a day I earn in IM.
