    Hey guys,

    As the title states, I am interviewing a blogger who does very well online.

    I'm looking for questions others might want to know if they were a total newbie or even an advanced veteran, what questions would you ask of someone who is doing this well online?

    I'm keeping the bloggers name anonymous for now.

    Well the questions should be geared towards wanting to start your own blog in any niche, what advice would you want to know in order to have a successful blog that you will treat as a business?

    How about this one: "How do you earn $30,000 a month from your blog?"

    I know I'd start with that one.

    Well personally I know it's from sales of products he has created, although I'm looking for questions both coming from newbies and advanced folks. Even simple stuff in terms of getting started, what would you want to know?

    What resources did you use to learn everything you know about setting up your blog?
    How much money did you initially invest into the blog?
    How did you get your name out there?
    About how long did it take before you started earning any money from your blog?
    What's 1 tip you would give to anyone starting out?
    If you could go back in time from when you first started your blog and give yourself some advice, what would it be?

    $30,000 that old age lie that every IM Guru makes up. That standard $1000 a day. I would ask Charlie Floate for proof.

    I'd be interested in knowing how much work gets put in per week to earn that much. I build niche sites for a portion of my income - and with outsourcing, the time I have to put into them per week is minimal. (Though I certainly don't make 30k per month)

    Curious to know what it takes in terms of time to run a blog to that level.

    For example: Is he/she posting everyday? What about promoting posts after publishing? How much was invested (in time and money) into the products you mentioned the income comes from? Stuff along those lines.

    Thanks guys, all great stuff.

    So too elaborate on this, he's taken me on to help him build a course. We are doing a 6 part interview series where I ask him questions, based on his advice I will be building a course around his advice in more detail. I have been blogging for 4 years but most of my stuff is churn and burn interviews, I'm no where near his level.

    Keep 'em coming.
