    How unlikely is it to make small income from a blog?

    Just how unlikely is it? Maybe like $3k/ year?

    It takes a bit of work, a really good topic, a bit of luck, and practice. But at my current rate I am making five figures a year just through blogging.

    I started at least 3 blogs before a started the one that has been my most successful. So don't be afraid to start a new blog when you get ideas. Just be consistent, and do your research and practice.

    Hubpages is a great place to learn from, and then take that knowledge further through other opportunities.

    I make decent money on my blogs and websites in addition to my hubs and working for clients via Elance and other freelancing sites.  To make that much on a blog you have to be dedicated and consistent, a topic that is unique and not over-saturated, but not so niche that no one is looking for it either.  It takes a lot of time and effort, but it can be done very easily.  My oldest website earns about $450 per month in ad revenue, some of my smaller ones earn $50 to $100 or so per month.

    The longer a site or blog is established, the more traffic and money you stand to make. You need to market, develop a following etc.
