Malaysian bloggers reap up to RM1 million per year
Who knew? The road to riches may be paved with blog posts.
Reporting on a Berita Harian (a Malaysian newspaper) story, The Star (another Malaysian daily) revealed that the annual incomes of local bloggers and blog operators can go up to RM1 million.
These days, many are leveraging their blogs in search of business transactions or advertisement placements. The average monthly income of such bloggers are reported to be a whopping RM70,000.
Berita Harian shone the spotlight on one blogger - Mira Abu Bakar, who hit an advertising revenue of RM12,000 for a month in 2008. She earns RM2,000 on average through her blog Redmummy.com
Of course a blog's revenue is dependent on its popularity - measured in pageviews and visitors. This point was reinforced by Nuffnang (M) Sdn Bhd manager Nicholas Chay. So don't quit your day job just yet.
