Advantages and Disadvantages of Blogging

Have you wanted to start your own blog? Starting your own blog can be a way for you to make money.

What Are the Advantages of having a blog?

This article wouldn’t exist if there weren’t advantages to blogging for money. Here they are:

  • You can make money. There are many different ways to make money blogging.
  • You can write about something you enjoy. I love blogging, because I love to talk and can get everything out there. Personal finance is a great topic because there are so many things to blog about.
  • You can write as much or as little as you want. It’s all up to you! Some people blog every single day, and some people only blog once a week. The amount is what fits you and your blog best.
  • You can share your opinion with the world. Everyone has their own valuable opinion, right? Maybe you can help someone!
  • With growing online commerce, the earning potential is limitless. Not everyone makes money though, so hopes of making a million in one month is of course very, very small.


What Are the Disadvantages of having a blog?

Just like everything else on the planet, there does exist some disadvantages..

  • This is NOT a get-rich-quick means to making money. As a matter of fact, it takes quite a long time before you can generate your first dollar. That said, if you persevere, you could potentially be very handsomely rewarded.
  • If you do not find the right niche, it may take even longer to build the blog to a point where it can make you some money.
  • It takes a lot of hard work to generate the content, to market it, to find affiliate/advertisers etc. Blogging takes a lot of work and is definitely not an easy job. Some people really enjoy blogging, whereas some do not. I LOVE it.


Blogging is one of the money-making ideas that carries some great benefits and demands some serious commitment. If you are serious about making money online, and want to do it with little or no investment, and take it at your own pace, this may be the way to go.

    I enjoy sharing my knowledge with people and meeting other bloggers and users around the world. There is no other way you can do this. Making money from blogging is indeed quite hard and most people should not get into it for that reason because they will be disappointed!
