Are you planning to start a Blog? But you are confused about whether it will be profitable or not! We all faced the same in our initial days. To reduce your confusion, I reached 13 Pro Bloggers to share their thought, experience, and optimal suggestions for you. Let see what they are saying-
Anil Agarwal From Bloggers Passion
There are more than 500 million blogs online.
“Can you offer something unique and informative (or entertaining) to your target audience?”.
If you can, you should definitely start a blog no matter what industry it is going to be.
Even though there are millions (if not billions) of blogs out there – there’s a big shortage of valuable content in almost every industry.
When I started my first blog back in 2005, there was not much competition. Write some random stuff, place Google AdSense ads (or Infolinks), drive traffic, and get paid.
It’s not that simple anymore due to heavy competition in every niche.
You need to provide value. You need to build a brand. You need to build an audience from scratch. You need to create high-quality content.
Above all, you need to be consistent.
Only then, you’ll succeed in blogging. If you’re someone who assumes blogging as a get rich quick scheme, you should probably look somewhere else.
But if you’re someone who’s ready to spend money on design, good theme, and tools and ready to work for 1 or 2 years without quitting – blogging can provide huge opportunities for you.
Ryan Biddulph, Founder of Blogging From Paradise
Of course! Money is in the mind. As long as humans have minds, it is a profitable time to begin blogging in 2021 or in any year.
The trick is to blog mainly for fun, to be detached from outcomes – largely – and to create and connect generously while opening multiple streams of income.
Do these things for 100’s then 1000’s of hours to slowly, steadily increase your profits.
But if you chase money, blogging mainly to make money, you will never make money blogging in 2021 or any year. Why? Money responds to the PROCESS, NOT the OUTCOMES.
Bloggers who make money focus heavily on the process of generously creating and connecting because money responds to the process.
Bloggers heavily focused on outcomes – like money and traffic – never follow the process diligently enough to make cheddah. Focus on the process, blog mainly for fun and you will profit in 2021 or any year.
Amit Garg From Blogging Beats
Of course, it will be profitable to start a blog in 2021 and beyond.
In fact, I would say there is nothing to lose in blogging. Either you will end up making a decent amount of money from your blog or will be taking away a new skill set (writing, designing, marketing, etc.) with you that will further help you in getting a good job, freelancing, starting a business, and so on.
Based on my perception, blogging is one of the best legit ways to make money online.
Anyone (no expertise needed) can start a WordPress blog by investing $30 – $40 for a year which is just negligible.
And if I talk about the earning potential through blogging, the sky’s the limit!!
There are so many ways to earn profits from a blog. Affiliate marketing, advertisements, sponsored posts, eBooks, courses, consultation are just a few to name.
Considering the blogging niche, even if you manage to generate a few sales from your blog you can easily earn $1000 every month.
Whether you are a student, or in a job or business, you can start blogging as a side hustle and later (if everything goes well) can become a full-time blogger.
So if you don’t own a blog right now, I would highly recommend you don’t wait for 2021 and start a blog (based on your passion and knowledge) straight away.
Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj From Blogging QnA
Yes, absolutely starting a blog in 2020 will be profitable.
Now, According to me creating a random blog will not give profit to you. You should start your blog in your interested niche then only you can survive in the blogging.
I am saying this because nowadays, the internet is full of blogs and every day thousands of blogs are coming. But only a few of them are successful because they started their blog in their interesting niche. Competition is very very very high these days in blogging. There are lots of blogs out there but the quality blogs are less. So If you are serious about making money through blogging then create an authority blog in your interested area. Then only you can survive.
The biggest mistake people are doing these days is, they are inspired by other blogger earning and thinking that they will also replicate the same. But that is not true. You are just watching their earning report But not looking at the time, money, patience, hard work they invested. Also, take it as a real business.
Don’t look for some secret or trick to become rich overnight with blogging. You have to invest your time, money, patience to get success. So, My final suggestion is, Start an Authority blog in your interested niche then only you will get success in blogging.
Shubha Tiwari From Just Women World
For me, blogging is my passion and love. I don’t blog just for earning, but I also want to share my thoughts and feelings to a broader audience. By saying this, I don’t want to say I hate money. As like you all, I love to earn as well.
But wait!!! If you are thinking that you will become rich quickly after buying a domain and hosting, better to postpone your plans. Because blogging is just like any other business these days. Just like after investing lakhs of rupees in a business of your choice, you can fail or succeed. The same is valid with blogging too.
But in blogging, you have not to invest lakhs. You need to invest a few thousand (maximum under 6000). If you are a food lover and love to eat outside most often, then you must be spending more than this on your restaurant bills.
And trust me if you want to succeed in blogging, you need to follow three rules religiously- Hard work, patience and trust. You must keep a few points clear at your mind before starting blogging-
- What do you expect from blogging? Clear at your mind; blogging is not a quick-rich scheme.
- Have you any interest in the niche in which you decided to blog? Or have you copied from others? You must be interested in your blogging niche so that you can write unique and original content.
- Are you ready to invest a few years of your life while failing, learning and succeeding? If your answer is yes, then you are all set to go.
Blogging was, is, and will always be an excellent option to start whether it is 2020 or 2021. But not by force, by choice. After all, it is your life, your interests, and your preferences. Who knows you can be a future someone, whom all are going to follow. Think about it.
Tushar Dey From Make Success Online
In fact, blogging is one of the most profitable business you can start online with little to no investment.
But that’s being said, I want to make one thing very clear.
Blogging is not a get rich quick scheme.
Blogging takes a lot of time before you start seeing some profits in your pocket.
I personally started making money from blogging after 1.6 years and throughout that period I didn’t make a single penny from it.
I always tell everyone, if you have patience then only start your blog otherwise don’t do it because you’ll most likely fail to make a profit out of it unless you’re too lucky.
My whole point is:
It’s definitely profitable to start a blog in 2021 and even beyond that but only if you continue it for a long period of time.
If you’re one of them who think that they can money through blogging in just 1 or 2 months then trust me it’s not going to be profitable for you to start a blog.
If you want to make blogging your full-time profession then don’t think about money for at least one year and keep working hard and learning new things during that period.
I did the exact same thing and it’s one of the biggest reasons behind the success of my blog.
Ravi Dixit From Stay Me Online
I started my blogging journey in May 2016, so it has been 4+ years for me in blogging.
I must say that blogging is growing every single year. New blogs are coming every day, people are now taking blogging as a career option.
Let me tell you something… when I started my blog back in 2016. It was tough for people at that time to understand that one can make money online by sitting at their home.
But now you know blogging as a career option, pro-bloggers are making a decent income from blogging and other related sources like affiliate marketing.
Starting a blog in 2021 or beyond will be profitable for sure, forget about the Google Trends graph that you see which is going down for “blogging” term.
Google Trends data is based on numbers of searches for a particular topic/keyword for a certain time period in Google.
Now, most of the people know what is blogging so there are fewer searches for blogging words compared to earlier years when blogging was a new thing in the market.
That’s the reason the blogging trend graph is going down every year, that doesn’t mean that blogging has no future.
There are many pro-bloggers who are in the blogging industry for more than a decade, few names are Harsh Agrawal, Anil Agarwal and so on…
They have been blogging for more than a decade and if you look at their earnings report, you’ll identify that their income is increasing every month and year.
In this COVID-19 pandemic when all the industries & businesses were stopped, blogging was still working and bloggers were making good money. Even more than any other time…
Those days were the golden opportunities for the bloggers to take their blogging journey to the next level.
But here is something important… Blogging is not easy and will not be easy, whether you are starting today or in 2021 or beyond that.
It is not going to be a quick-rich scheme ever for you or anyone.
Here are some of the tips from my own experience that will help you to start a profitable blog in 2021:
- Invest in your learning, by investing I don’t mean that invest only money. Invest your time(and money if you can) to learn as much as you can. There are lots of free stuff available on the internet that you can use to learn from.
- Choose your niche carefully because it will be the main factor in your success in blogging. I have seen people who plan to start a blog, blindly dive into the same niche that their mentor focuses on or which other fellow bloggers are working on. Your niche should be what you are passionate about and have good knowledge so you can write about that without getting bored. Moreover, it should have enough demand in the market and the potential to make money. Choosing an appropriate niche can really make blogging easy for you.
- Never hesitate from investing in your blog, like buying premium tools, themes, plugins, etc. Premium things can really make your work easy, for example, premium SEO tools like SEMrush can make it easy for you to outrank your competitors, gain rankings, increase traffic, and other SEO related tasks.
- Do not focus on only one source to make money through your blog. When I started my blog, I depended on Google AdSense only to earn from my blog but it didn’t work for me. Then I shifted to Affiliate Marketing and now I am having multiple sources to make money.
- Focus on building your own community or you can say own your traffic. Imagine, Google has announced a new algorithm update and it snatched your rankings and traffic from you. Now? So, if you own the traffic you don’t need to be dependent on Google.
At last, It is definitely profitable to start a blog in 2021 but you will need to understand that it is not going to be a quick-rich scheme. Choose your niche carefully and follow all the tips listed above.
Saurabh Tiwari From Techi Bhai
Simply the answer is yes.
Yes, it’s possible and you can do it.
Financial freedom is priceless, or it’s all over everything. Blogging can give you a huge opportunity to get famous and as well as you can earn huge money via blogging.
But the bitter truth is most of the bloggers fail at the beginning of their blogging journey. It’s mostly because they don’t know how to rank a website, how to write engaging articles, how to create High-quality backlink, how to do SEO as well as how to monetize their blog in a proper way.
To get success in blogging, you need to be patient, Dedicated, Consistent, quick learner, start producing content for your niche audience, and steadily build your organic search results.
Social media Sites, Blogging communities’, Groups can help a new blog to get instant traffic and helps you connect with other bloggers, but real success is only gained when a blog can attract a high percentage of organic traffic from search engines.
Well, here are some benefits of blogging are as follows-
- Helps you improve your skills such as content writing, Blog design, SEO, networking skills, and so on
- Helps you earn money online
- Helps you build a career
- Helps you connect with successful bloggers and influencers
- You can build a strong presence online
There are many ways to you can earn money from blogging or I would say ways to earn from your blog.

Yes, It is definitely profitable to start a blog in 2021. If you have the passion and dedication towards blogging then you should start a blog and make some passive income from your blog.
Blogging enables many people to earn a living from it. All you need is to choose a niche for your blog. A niche can be anything which you are passionate about and have great knowledge in it. It helps you to create helpful and quality content.

Santosh Gairola From Blogging Cosmos
Yes, It is profitable to start a blog in 2021 and beyond that.
Blogging is one of the most awesome ways to connect with millions and even Billions of people who love to read online blogs to improve their lives.
I believe that in the coming times’ internet will penetrate deeper into the world population. There are many remote areas where the internet is yet to reach. I’m sure It will open more possibilities for Blogging business and spreading knowledge.
The entire human race loves to document their critical data in the form of textual scripts. Hence, the art of reading & writing is not going anywhere. The second point I like to bring here is the competition in Blogging.
Definitely, after the growth of work from home culture, Blogging increased tremendously. Daily several blogs are getting activated in the Blogosphere. Due to that, competition in the SERP increased at a maximum level. But by applying the right blogging strategies you can easily win the game of Blogging.
In the practical approach, I know it will be not easy for you in the starting, but it is also not too difficult. The blogging industry changes so fast; the things which are applicable today may change tomorrow, so there is always space for good content and awesome creators.
If you want to start a blog in 2021 and beyond, solely start and have full faith in your abilities. Remember if you can think about it, you can achieve it. No one can stop you from fulfilling your ambitions. But you will need to learn how the whole process works?
Archana Tiwari From BloggingTry
Initially, blogging was the online platform to express yourself, share thoughts on the internet, and it was like a personal diary. But time has been changed. Traditional blogs have converted into professional blogs.
Nowadays, blogging has become the more popular and influential source of making passive income online. You have many opportunities to make money online through blogging.
That’s why many people want to jump into blogging to earn. You can find many bloggers who are making a considerable amount, which is more than enough to live a boss free life.
Here are some method by which you can make money by Blog –
- Selling of eBooks
- Affiliate Marketing
- Selling of Course
- Offering Services
Other than that, there are many ways to make money online. That’s why competition is also increasing day by day in the Blogging field. In such situations, it will be tough for you to grow your BlogBlog and make money faster.
Then why would you wait for more competition? You have to beat your competitors to grow yourself. Your Passion, Consistency, and Hard work could be the main factor in determining whether you will be able to get success or not.
Competition exists everywhere, but you are the only one who is going to handle this. Probably you will get a failure, but you should never demotivate yourself.
So if you have passion, interest, knowledge, and capabilities to give competition to your competitors, then you are most welcome in blogging.
Nothing is stable in the world. Everything can be removed and replaced by something new. So, it depends on you how you will react to those new things.
Blogging is always worth when
- You are passionate about helping
- Ready to Learn something different
- You are aware of content creation and audience targeting
- You are consistent and deliver genuine content.
- You choose the right niche and perfect tools for starting a blog.
Many more things are required for a successful Blogging; you have to keep learning those things; one more thing you need to have patience in blogging because it takes time to grow.
I also like to recommend that if you plan to start your BlogBlog in 2021, it would be best to begin your Blog Now and keep on learning new skills and doing blogging.
Chayan Chakrabarti From Simple Facts Online
Thanks a Joy for inviting me with all other experts.I am really happy for your new blog. Wishing you all the best for bloggingwithjoy.
Profit is a subjective matter. For me, I calculate or evaluate profit like this, the maximum return you can get with the least effort. And blogging fits naturally there.
Let’s get into the basics. What do you need to start a blog? One can start a free blog and if they want to get into the next stage, they can just buy a domain and host and get along with it. Now it comes down to the investment and the efforts that the person is giving towards the blog.
No matter who you are, you can start a blog to express your thoughts. And these are the biggest perks that I have. When I wanted to start an online venture, I used to research a lot. I have consumed content like how to get traffic, run ads, marketing, and what not!
But after I started my work, I felt that I am a jack of all trends and master in nothing. Trust me, it hurts. When you go against all the odds and start something that keeps giving yourself doubt, it’s challenging.
The mindset is very important here, when I started I wanted to make at least monthly $100 from the ad networks. I did not see any other opportunities. Then I started looking at affiliate marketing. And my first payout was $510 from a single affiliate product in the first month.
You have to keep your mind open, You are neither an expert nor definitely someone who can’t do anything.
Did you know that more than 70% of bloggers give up? And why does that happen? We dream about the greatness of blogging and online work. We all want to look cool in front of others and that’s why we started our business, but most of us are lacking a vision.
To summarize, blogging will be profitable in 2021 and beyond, till the time people are searching on google, the websites will have a chance. You can scan 3 blog posts and spend less time watching 10 minutes of video.
Hope this gives you a clear idea about blogging in 2021. So what are you waiting for? Share the post with your friend who you think will benefit from this post. Don’t forget to drop a comment your thoughts.
