Things I learned from the Olympics Blog

Written by George Manty  · March 22, 2006

I am going to be writing a series of posts that will highlight the most important things I learned from making money with the Olympics Blog.

To start things off…

I don’t believe that blogs are the best way to make lots of money online.

However, I do believe that some people can make a living blogging.

The biggest problem I came across is the amount of work it takes to keep up a high traffic blog. It’s like a job. Whereas, when you create a regular informational website, once it’s up you don’t have to constantly update it. I have a website that consistently makes me from $150-250 dollars a month. I have spent 1-2 hours working on that website over the last 6 months. Now, sure I spent a lot of time up front with it. But now it runs on auto-pilot. (I have sitesell to thank for this)

There is something to be said for that. If I could create 50 sites like that, I could be making 200×50 dollars = 10,000 dollars a month from those informational sites, without spending much additional time on them. Better yet, I could create a mega-informational site that rakes in lots of money (like howstuffworks).

Anyway, in the near future I will be posting more thoughts on what I learned from the Olympics Blog and I will be starting a new series on making money online.
