Michael Aulia of CravingTech had Earned a Million in Blogging!


Making money online thru blogging has never been easy for beginners. It takes time, passion, effort and patience before you could reap. Eventually, you will start with zero earnings until such time you will have a good traffic then, income comes next. I agree with John Chow’s advise, according to him “when you blog, forget the money it will just come after otherwise you will get frustrated”. That’s why majority fails to make money online but there are few people like Michael Aulia who made a decent passive income in blogging. 
Michael Aulia is the founder of CravingTech.com, a well-known blog as a source of updated IT news, reviews, SEO, blogging, and geek ramblings articles since 2007(formerly MichaelAulia.com).Apart from CravingTech he is also the author of WriteForGod.com, a blog that covers inspiring spiritual articles. Michael currently works as a Software Development Manager in a small IT company in Melbourne, Australia and he is only blogging part-timely but earning good. 

Based on monthly traffic and income stats post, his October 2011 income reaches $1,804.64 mainly from private ads, Adsense, Affiliate sales and other ads network. What else? While calculating all his income, I found out that he had unbelievably earned around $25,187.45 or P1, 060,643.51 pesos in four years of blogging.wow! Very impressive.

How do I know that? Michael is simply transparent and inspiring. Check this link: http://www.cravingtech.com/category/others/blog-statistics

Michael’s word in one of my comment on his monthly traffic and income stats: 

Bennix:”You’re great sir Michael, you’re the only webmaster that reveals everything about your income. Inspiring, $807 is totally cool for me.congrats…:)

Michael Aulia:”Thanks, Bennix. I’m doing it to motivate other bloggers to keep on blogging and do their best. I guess maybe I have to stop doing this at some point – not sure whether it’s good to be too transparent like this at times lol”.

Interview with Michael thru email…(November 10, 2011)

Bennix:"Hello sir Michael, I am going to publish the article soon about your all income in blogging. Unbelievably you made a gross of $25,187.45 that’s a Million pesos in our currency (Philippines).I just want to have your simple word for our readers. How did you earn that amount in four years and what are your simple tips for success in making money online through blogging?  Hope I could have your positive response ASAP. Thank you and more power to CravingTech!".

Michael: “WOW really?? Awesome! I never really think about the total gross and all that so far, so I'm as surprised as you do. Of course, I'm still far away from other great bloggers who can earn >$5,000 a month!Just like any other bloggers, I started with nothing, like less than a dollar a day. Keep building your blog with quality articles for both recognition and traffic, the money will then come automatically. Even if you only earn a few dollars here and there, they will build up eventually to become a larger figure :)"
