Top 10 Richest Indian Bloggers: What's The Lesson For YOU?

When you read articles like this on how others have made -- and keep making -- a lot of money blogging, a lot of things happen.

The content might inspire you to start your blog, keep the faith in your current blogging journey, or even try your hand at turning your passion into an income source that can help you pay off debt or save up for retirement. But before you get too excited, there are several things to consider.

First, if you're starting, don't expect to make millions right away.

Second, you need to know what it takes to succeed.

Finally, you'll want to understand whether blogging is worth it in terms of effort versus reward.

If you are starting, there are plenty of lessons to learn from these successful bloggers. Here are some of them.

Don't Give Up Your Day Job.

Some of these bloggers didn't quit their day jobs until they established a decent income with their blog. They had been doing something else before they decided to turn their hobby into a business. That means they had experience with whatever skill set they wanted to monetize. If you're going to make money blogging, you should do the same thing. You should find a way to earn money while continuing to work full time.

Find A Niche You Love & Stick With It

If you love what you do, then why would you ever give it up? These people found a niche they loved and stuck with it. Not only did they find a way to make money from it, but they also became passionate about it. So if you're looking to make money online, think about finding a topic you genuinely love. If you enjoy talking about it, then you will probably become good at it.

It Doesn't Have To Be About Money.

Money isn't everything. Many of these bloggers turned their passions into businesses because they were passionate about what they wrote. Many of them talk about subjects that are entirely unrelated to money. However, they still managed to build thriving businesses around those interests. What this means is, you don't have to focus solely on money. There are lots of ways to make money without having to worry about being rich.
