We’re trying to be the best independent source for news, arts, events, and food in each of our cities. Competition is intense for stories, advertisers, and staff. Much more so than in the old days of newspapers. You grow a website by producing a high quantity of interesting content every day, year-in and year-out, for a very long period of time.
“Making money from blogging requires you to do only two things: drive a lot of traffic, then maximize the income from that traffic..." - John Chow
I think it's always been true that Mashable is more consumer-facing. It's always been about, "How can you, as a Web user, work with these tools?" It was always speaking to the user directly. It’s all about utility - thinking about the reader first and ‘what are they going to get out of this?'
Getting Lifehacker to where it is now has been a long road – years of posting 6-12 times a day. It’s been a labor of love, the perfect combination of writing and software and helping people. I think every person starting a blog right now should ask themselves why they want to do it. If the answer’s because you love what you're writing about, you’ve got the best motivation in the world.
I’ve long advised that bloggers seeking to make money from blogging spread their interests across multiple revenue streams so as not to put all their eggs in one basket.

Seven Things you Need to Know about Blogging by Darren Rowse of ProBlogger
One of the beautiful aspects to becoming a blogger is the sheer volume of possible revenue streams ahead of you. In the early days of blogging, the compartments or channels to your blog can be incredibly important. AdSense had a bad month? Invariably affiliate sales will cover it. Email sign-ups a little slow? Amazon Affiliates will see an unexpected spike. All the while you're writing, and learning, you'll be earning...(albeit slowly at first)...
To give you an example of the myriad ways major bloggers earn, check out the two infographics from Darren Rowse, owner of ProBlogger.net --
Lifetime access is ensured through your purchase. Even when you’ve finished the lessons you can return to them for reference as much as you like.
The lessons included in this course are very thorough and instructions are clear and detailed, and are designed to give you all the information you need to create your profitable blog. We do not provide additional, personal tutoring as part of this package.
Our online courses are not a bit of software which you download, you simply log into our website to access the course material. Therefore, the requirements are that you have an up-to-date internet browser (e.g. Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer). A variety of technical set up options are discussed in the lessons – some of which you would need to pay for – but that is a personal choice for you to make on your journey.
Absolutely not. This is a course which takes you through the full research and set up process – no matter what your specialized area is that you wish to write about. Even if you are unclear on the precise details of your idea, we will help you determine if your niche has potential and how to maximise it.
It does indeed. There are so many options for bloggers when it comes to the tools required to optimize your blog. We’ve tested many of them down the years, failed with many, succeeded with others, and our findings are revealed in the course. You can click simple links to ensure within 10 minutes you’ve got everything you need to have the perfect blog.
The stats above don’t lie! There is a vast amount of money to be made from blogging, and it’s worth bearing in mind – why would you own just one blog? Multiple niches, multiple revenue streams per niche equals…a lot of revenue streams! Is it easy? No. Can you knock up a blog overnight and expect huge revenues straight away? No. Do you need all the usual qualities necessary for success in any walk of life? Of course. But lots of people – many of them less talented or driven than you might be – are making serious, serious cash from blogging. Where there’s a will, there’s very clearly a way when it comes to blogging…
