Make Money Online Blogs and Tweeters

by Robb Sutton

I find it incredibly surprising…well not really…how many make money online bloggers there are out there that don’t actually make any money online! If you look at any of the successful MMO bloggers out there…Darren of Problogger, John Chow, Shoemoney, etc….they all MADE MONEY on another blog before they ever even started talking about making money online. Seems like a simple concept really…talk about what you have experience in. How are you going to tell your readers how to race a car if you have never been in a car race? How are you going to instruct and teach them how to cook if the most complicated meal you have ever made is cereal? You can’t! So why are all of these bloggers out there blogging about making money online when they have zero experience in the subject?

I can tell you why…because they are just copying other make money online blogs out there in the hope that they too can start living the dot com lifestyle. However, they will never make it to the web super stardom they are after because they are lacking one crucial element those other bloggers have…ORIGINAL THOUGHT. That’s right…an idea or concept that is new and exciting! If you are just regurgitating someone else’s thoughts, feelings, experience, emotions…you are not original and you will not see success. If you are going to blog about blogging, money, internet marketing or affiliate marketing, you better have some experience to draw off of other than your MMO blog. You have to have real life experience to back up your ideas and credibility and if you don’t then I am so sorry but maybe that’s not the job for you, I always tell everyone how there’s millions of ways of making money, people just need to learn how to do it properly, some have become milliners by just gambling with slotsbaby a few times a day, all you need to do is to BE SMART.

Twitter and Making Money Online

Twitter has created a whole new slew of MMO bloggers and Tweeters all looking to make a quick buck online. I have made it a habit to try to follow back anyone who follows me @robbsutton. I don’t normally do this on my other Twitter accounts, but I thought I would give it a try with my personal one. What this has created is dozens of DM’s from other Twitter participants all with links that they promise will either make me money online or through Twitter.

One…auto DM’s are annoying and I don’t click on the links anyway. Two…Do you really think I am going to trust your one, un-personal SPAM link? Do you really think that is going to convince me that you are actually good at what you profess you are an expert in? I guess you are looking for that 2% conversion rate and hope that a couple of people stick around to hear what you have to say.

The Secret To Making Money Online

Here it is…are you ready all of you “I have to spam you” Tweeters and bloggers…are you listening really  closely…here is the secret to making money online…


That’s right…there is no way around it. I do not want your link on how to put my income on autopilot or how to make money off my Tweets. The truth in any business that will create long term revenue is hard work unless you feel comfortable while gambling all away in a casino.

Not feeling comfortable is one of the reasons why people quit gambling.

The other reason I think it’s important to make a real-world career from gambling is the emotional and financial costs. I think all gamblers feel like they lose a lot of money or pay a lot of money. Many people don’t understand how deep the financial losses that come from their gambling habits are.

This is why I think it’s so important to make a real-world career out of gambling. To me, if the only way to make money is to gamble, then the only way to become successful is to become a gambler. If you do become a gambler eventually, you will find that the money that you make is huge. It is a great income that will make you money. Even if you play cards or sports betting, you need to be successful in other areas of your life as well, in order to survive.

What are some of the challenges that gambling presents and challenges you’ll face?

I think that to play a lot, you need a good amount mental training and discipline much like you need while running a business to manage everything properly.

If making money online was that easy, there would be millions of millionaires and no one to pick up our trash on a weekly basis. You are building a business and just like any business…it takes time and customers. So next time you see that advertisement that promises to make you millions off adsense or the secret program that will turn your Tweets into gold, hit delete and go about finding a niche and idea that you can call your own.

In the meantime, quit sending me auto direct messages about your “new” idea! We have all heard it a thousand times already and if it was that great…you wouldn’t need to use the auto DM.

Interesting to me to see this re-surge, from 3 years ago, when it was all paid bloggers making money and so on. Just note, it’s a lot of work to make 4% from AMZ, and 3 dollars a week from Google. You really have to hit a critical mass of traffic to make enough to pay your mortgage. And for every blog you publish, there are 4 whack-a-mole zombie blogs ripping off your content.

I always laugh at the comment…”I am going to quit my job and start blogging!” You might want to start blogging first…what you said is 100% correct about earnings…they take a lot of time before they build up.

Just wanted to say great post. It’s a post I wish I could force about a million so-called internet marketers to read.

“Hard work” ei! Hard work how? That’s the same old word people always say tantamount to “dream on loser, you gonna die figuring it out”

Yes! Originality is one big factor before you can actually earn money from the blogs that you are making. Plus of course, there are still other elements like hardwork, quality of your work, and the like.

It’s true!, you have to choose a subject. The amount of times I wrote a post after reading “problogger” and I forgot to stick to my topic is unbelievable…

Most of the marketers are jokers with no money. There’s ways of seeing through them, like the ones that write an e-book on how to get a million followers on Twitter and they only have 5,000…

I’m trying to stick to my series and blog along the way on the progress, I know that it’s tough to build up stacks of content this way but if the videos are good then I’ll get my traffic that way.

Thanks Robb.
