Making Money Blogging [video]

by Robyn Wright on March 11, 2015

in Social Media

I was supposed to speak at the #BAMC15 conference this past weekend but the weather on the route did not cooperate. Normally I fly everywhere but I was going to drive this time and look what happens. Hmph.

Since I could not make it there in person I did a quick video. I would have been speaking about making money blogging and in social media and working with brands so that is what the video is about. Yes, I give real dollar amounts in the video even.

To be honest, I could talk for hours on this topic. It is what I do and I find it fascinating. However, I needed to keep the video under 10 minutes so I had to cut out a lot (note: video editing is not my strong suit). For the rest of you interested in the topic here is the video. Even if you are not a blogger or in social media but are curious about how I do this all as a living you might find the video interesting too.


I’m happy to answer any questions you have on what I have covered and anything I may have left out. Just ask away in the comments below!

I would make a horrible blogger half my time would be spell check and I am not that interesting . I always learn something from you.

Very very interesting, Robyn. I learned a lot and enjoyed listening to and watching you speak.

Thanks Rust!

I do not even know how to make a video, let alone edit one, so I think you did a fine job. I also think it’s impressive that you’re able to make money blogging, because so many people do not achieve that status!

I will have to do a video on how to make a video for you :-)

You made a great video and gave wonderful information in what time you had. I knew there was money made in blogging but I didn’t realize how much.

Thanks Shelly. It does take a lot of work, but you really can make a living doing it.

the wheels are spinning :-)

and I am the hampster…LOL going to make hubby watch your video tonight and see what he thinks. We have been talking about me going back to work, to help with finances, but neither of us really wants that. This could be an answer to our needs…who knows. Worth looking into. :-D

14 Robyn Wright March 12, 2015 at 7:00 pm

I’m happy to help in any way if I can!

15 AngelaLilly March 13, 2015 at 7:16 am

Thank you! :-D Hubby watched the video last night and was intrigued like me. He was saying how he would totally pay you $100 for an hour long Skype to show me the ropes. :-D He also said “I like her. She seems honest.” LOL I was like, “That’s Robyn!” :-D

WOW! Good for you! I think you do a great job being Honest and strait forward. That’s why I like your reviews. I love my Microsoft Band also! I have even more respect for you and other bloggers. It think it’s a tough job to find your audience. Thanks for all the great info.

17 Robyn Wright March 12, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Thank you so much Tammy! That means the world to me when people like and respect my reviews! I try very hard to be very honest and not influenced regardless if I got the product for free and/or am paid or not. I totally am loving my Microsoft Band and will be having posts on that soon!

19 Robyn Wright March 12, 2015 at 7:01 pm

It has been a rough winter for sure, but I think the corner is turning for us all!

20 missdonna March 12, 2015 at 6:36 pm

Wow! I’ve followed you on Twitter (different user name) for years. Didn’t realize how you’ve built up the blog business. Very interesting info here. Good for you!

21 Robyn Wright March 12, 2015 at 7:01 pm

Thank you Donna!

I didn’t realize panelists are paid for twitter parties. I always assumed they participated simply to boost followers/blog visits.

23 Dawn Schamp-Monzu March 25, 2015 at 2:51 pm

I have always wanted to start a blog, but I had no idea how to get started! Thank you so much for such GREAT information! There is so much information out there on the web, but I never know what is good and what is “not so good”. I really appreciate you posting this, it helps a lot! God bless!

24 Dawn Schamp-Monzu April 16, 2015 at 1:31 pm

Ok…so I watched this again…and I think I learned even more the second time! I love that you weren’t afraid of giving REAL dollar amounts! THANK YOU…as always, for everything!
