    I've been making money from creating blogs rather from just blogging. And you know, Blogger is definitely not my option. I've got my own fashion blog, but it brings me less than 100$ per month. I concentate more on making cute blogs and simple websites from wordpress themes ( ) for my clients. Web design brings me more money in one week than I make from blogging all month.
