    Yes, it's possible. The only question is HOW LONG CAN YOU WAIT? If you can wait close to a year until your blog network gets decent organic traffic, you might have to supplement your blogging with a 'day job.'

    Of course it's possible. Countless people are doing it. It depends on a lot of things of course like your niche, the size of your audience etc but if you can grow it further than it's doable. Good luck

    The question is not can or cant. The question is, will you do it for full time? Because living through blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. It's just like a real business. So you need to spend time and effort in doing it.

    I live full time by doing blogging. But ofc i have been blogging for years. It's not not just blogging. You should have multiple skills like SEO etc. But ofc if you have money you always can outsource. Money makes money.

    It's possible, but I'd say you gotta go for one of the two following areas:

    1. Topic focused, try to write about a specific topic where there's some traffic but without too much competition, and build your way up from there, these are your typical blogs where the author doesn't have much to say, but for some reason ends up on enough searches to get traffic
    2. Persona-based, be someone of interest (usually by having something interesting to say) and build your way up from there, a notable example would be "Wait but why" that does lengthy articles on topics the author is interested in and since he produces such high quality work a lot of people will frequent his page because of the author

    Either catch the traffic of google or be genuinely interesting, the first might be easier but I bet the latter is more rewarding, however I don't think a lot of people can pull that off.
