While perusing a forum one of the threads asked, “Is your blog profitable?”

I decided to make it a late night and give this question some more thought…

Search-This Cost to Benefit Analysis

  • $6.96 per month for web hosting.
  • $50 per month for marketing and promotion cost.
  • $56,250 a year for time invested – say 15 hours a week with 50 weeks in a year (-2 for some vacation, come on) at $75 an hour.


Time spent making new friends and helping others become better webmasters – PRICELESS!

If you would like to learn more about blogging and connect with other bloggers, be sure to checkout the new Blog Experiment Forums. Now is a good time to join and introduce yourself because it’s still the grand opening!

And do you say it worth blogging? Or it is just a hobby?
~$60.000 is te cost of a great online promotion campaign…

@qureyoon: thanks for taking off the cloaking shield and saying hello 🙂

@Balazs Balint: it’s most definitely worth it – although make sure you have a very understanding wife 🙂

Thanks for the link mark! and thanks for joining.

And yes I’m with you on the amount of time I have spent blogging or networking b/c of my blog, but the benefits are definitely worth it!
