If everyone is blogging about making money, then who is spending the money?

I am rather free today and blog hop from one make money blog to another. From the very top like Assrington, the respectable Problogger, the evil JohnChow to some random guys who dream of becoming one of them. There is something that all of us little minions should wake up to. These guys are already in the loop. They know the inside out of whatever they are involved in and hence, they make millions because they are already in an industry that make them rich. Blogging is just a secondary thing. It is not the blogging that make them rich. It is their real job and connections they have.

So, don’t you think it is time we stop writing and mimicking them about how to make money? If everyone is writing about making money, then who is going to spend all those money?

Now, I will tell you why that you seem to notice mommy bloggers making more money than the tech nerds who probably spent hours in front of their PC wanking to analytics, algorithms, statistics, whatever blahs they use to describe those numbers and data. It is because mommy bloggers cater to the market who have money to spend. Fashion, food, relationship, lifestyle, travel, hobby, movies, musics, celebrities, sex, pets and all of these are the domains of mommy bloggers. They know these stuffs well and they have a lot of bored housewives sitting at home surfing the net and buying things. The money roll in from there.

So, now, still want to write about how to make [tag]money[/tag]? You are better off writing about how to spend money. The second sentence in bold is my tip for the day. Those are niches you should focus on.

    Oops, I think I am moving into that area, the grey area I guess…

    I’ll pull out now, there’s a whole lot of people writing about blogging and making money out of blogging out there, even a 13 years old boy from Philippines.

    yea, i agree. and in addition, mommy bloggers connect to many others who have similar interests. Unlike tech bloggers, half the time i wonder where their enthusiasm for those gadgets and softwares come from.

    So I should hire all the mommy around my neighbourhood and the market to write for my blog :D
