Over the past few years I’ve been encouraged to get a “real job” – to tirelessly work a 9-to-5 and somehow be satisfied with that. Instead, I want to earn a living online doing what I love. I want to build a substantial passive income that can fund both my future and my passions. Plenty of people make money online after all. So as of April 2012, I registered my business and embarked on a unique journey to become successful online. This blog exists to share experiences, knowledge, advice, achievements, and failures. I’m trying to be very transparent in what I share.

Matthew sets for himself annual income goals to be achieved and publishes a graphical report on how much of it has been achieved:

My current goal is to earn $500,000 solely online, so far earned $225,732 which is 45% of my goal value.

Acoupletravelers. com started in 2012 when Dave and Vicky decided to travel the world in two years and they haven’t looked backed since then. According to

Dave is the tech-guy. He handles the website, so when you log on and it’s under construction or missing, you know who to blame. When he’s not doing that, he’s making the videos for our trip.

Vicky is our talented planner, she has mapped out the entire route, and does the photography. Oh, and did I mention she cooks?

Together they cover topics ranging from bloging, interviews of other travel bloggers, culture traditions, reviews and reflections about places and smart tips on how to travel frugal. And did I mention that is a part of the BlogHer blog network?

Kirsty -

Kirsty - nerdynomad.comKirsty the founder of earned a total of $6458.00 from her travel blog.’s Kirsty is from Canada but she has left her home country since 2001 for a quest to travel around the world. Travel was always a passion for Kirsty, but it really took off when she took a one way ticket to Australia in 2001 for an adventurous, entertaining and rewarding journey. According to Kirsty:

Since then I’ve lived in London and Beijing and have travelled a bunch. I quit my job in London in 2007 and have been roaming around since then, looking for interesting things to get up to. Fortunately I’m able to fund my life of wandering through earnings from the internet, and that’s what this blog is about (with a bit of travel thrown in, of course).

My latest and greatest passion is volunteering and I have spent time in Bangladesh, Nicaragua, Indonesia and Haiti as a volunteer. The work is hard but hugely rewarding and the people I’ve met have been amazing.

Kirsty has also made money from the ebook she has written and she recommends it to everyone who is interested in volunteering.

I wrote an ebook called The Underground Guide to Volunteering and, if you’re remotely interested in volunteering, pick it up because it will be helpful. I promise.

Kirsty puts up somewhere between 1-5 posts per month on, which are fairly lengthy and comprise of her income reports, travel related learnings and summary of his journeys. She is more popular in Finland.

Analysis of all the blogger income reports and conclusion

The above listed data can prove quite exhaustive to blog readers accustomed to read short or middle length posts. But the lack of such information which provides both the income reports along with SEO and social parameters was difficult to find at least for our team so we decided to do it. This post will help bloggers understand and calibrate their SEO and social parameters along with the different sources bloggers use to make money online. Listed below are few important takeaways from this post:

    1. Adsense – The Google’s lucrative contextual advertising program, which used to be a big source of income for bloggers is not the major source of income as of now. Though there are some blogger whose main source of income is adsense, but most of them are looking and focusing on other avenues. The low ROI on adsense ads and the constant fear of getting banned might be some of the reasons.
    1. Affiliate marketing is one of the biggest source of income for a majority of these bloggers. And if we dissect it a layer further, we find that web hosting, website plugins, themes and website tools form a lion’s share of this affiliate income.
    1. Barring a few most of the blogger have mechanisms in place to built a double opt in email list to which they can send further promotional offers. Ebooks, newsletters, tips, how to guides, freebies etc. are the most popular methods of getting people to subscribe.
    1. Social connections are becoming increasingly important in getting bigger paychecks. As you can see from the above data the bloggers with a better presence on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and other social media platforms are having better earnings.
    1. The frequency of posting of successful money making blogger vary between 5 posts per month to 30 posts per month but the bloggers which post around 5-10 posts per month and make their post authoritative by researching well both about the niche and focusing on the right keywords are getting better traction. I also noted that, few of these bloggers are not at all consistent with their posting schedule, but they are still trying to get massive amount of traffic from search engines to increase their passive income.
    1. Most of the bloggers above are doing it full time (well almost and they are enjoying it too) and many of them were forced to get into blogging as they landed into financial doldrums or had an intense desire to quit the office cubicle and a 9-5 regular work.
    1. Many of these successful bloggers are not relying on just a single website but have multiple niche websites and some are also a part of blog network which brings in another level of security just in case one of the sites is not working.
    1. These bloggers are well connected with other bloggers in their own respective niche and often collaborate and harness each other’s strengths to generate new revenue models.
    1. These bloggers are constantly looking for new affiliate models and products and are not reluctant to try new things even if they have to pay for it. Failing fast and a keen eye on trying new things helps them stay ahead of the crowd. And most of them are offering either consulting or selling digital products to make more money from their sites. You must need to consider doing this as well if you’re aiming at making such amount of huge income from your blogs every month.
    1. All of these blogger have invested in getting a professional look to their blogs and their designs, unique voice, techniques are all regularly tested and many of them do a lot of A/B and multivariate testing to improve on their existing designs and get the maximum out of their investments. We all know the importance of having a professional design, so if you want to make money like these bloggers, invest your time and money on getting an appealing design for your blogs. I’d personally recommend you to use Genesis or Thesis as they both are search engine friendly and great looking themes.

That was a really long post, but we think it is worth the effort. Again if you want to be featured in this bloggers income reports post do contact us. Suggestions and feedback is welcome.
