    You expressed some really interesting views in this article. I especially like the idea that working towards a 4 hour work week might not seem obtainable, in your circumstances, but it remains a great reference and benchmark for you. I like the fact that you have a clear action plan that is measurable over time. Thank you for the perspective, I think that I can produce the same result over time. Maybe not overnight, but in time. Thank you!

      Hi Sherman. I’m glad that you enjoyed the post. I do believe that given enough time and hard work, each of us will eventually be able to work fewer hours. I am certainly trying my hardest to make it happen.

    Hi! I have enjoyed your post very much! I would be super happy with a 4 hours a day business. And with affiliate marketing after a couple of years of hard work, I believe it’s achievable. I haven’t arrived there yet. But being perfectly honest, I do believe it’s achievable! Let’s keep on working until we get there!

    This Is amazing topic I found this to be very useful! I had so many questions about blogging. I had to change my outlook on it to make it more me almost like a personal diary I think it’s amazing to be able to do something like this!! You have to really apply yourself constantly and maintain your time wisely

    I got to know of making money with blogging while I was surfing the internet for ways to make money online. I decided to give it a try with no experience but the training platform you recommended in your post has taught me most of the things that I now know. 

    With some few months of experience I have now, spending 4 hours a week on your blog as a starter wouldn’t earn you much. It will take years to get to a level where you can make a consistence income. I’ve observed that the longer hours you spend on your blog as a starter the shorter the time to start making a consistent income. 

    However, established bloggers can decide to work 4 hours a week if they hire people to write contents for them to keep their business at its peak. Even that I think it wouldn’t be that easy.

      Hi, yes I agree it will take some time and a huge following before there is any likelihood of making blogging a 4 hour work week candidate. However, I still believe that in time I may be able to bring it down to 12 hours a week. Crossing my fingers.

    KerryAnn,

    My guess is you can probably do a 4 hour work week if all you are doing is overseeing everyone else doing the actual work for you.  Which is what all those people selling those systems leave out and why they cost so much!  I mean here I could get a software program to work within Wealthy Affiliate to post to all my Social Media Platforms once I am ready to publish a post, but being new I am not really comfortable enough to do that.  I am like you I would rather do the work myself and if it takes me longer to get there – then it takes longer, but with Wealthy Affiliate I do know one thing I will get there.

    Thank you for this information I will stay like you with Wealthy Affiliate and put in my time,

      Hello Susan, thank you for your thoughts. I totally agree with your comment about the costs many people ignore. I wrote a post some months ago and stated exactly the same thing. It was entitled Make Money online Thoughts. In that post, I also mentioned that it was not turnover that counted but what was left over. Every business including an online one must take into account the cost of presenting itself to potential customers.

    Hi Kerry Ann,

    I have been blogging for about 10 years now and I found your post to be very informative and accurate for a new blogger to understand.

    Blogging is an essential part of any business. It allows the blogger to share thoughts and at the same time stamp their authority of their niche on the internet.

    Before people buy, they will commonly check your website to see if you are credible and blogging can be a great way to show your position in the market.

    I consider your website a central part of your online business and all other parts of the internet should feed into it.

    Many bloggers make the mistake of making Facebook the center. That’s great unless you get hacked, shut down or loose access for any reason.

    Social media should be used to drive prospects to your website, which you control!

    You have done a great review of blogging!

      Thank you, Tim. It is wonderful to have the opinion of an experienced blogger. I am also glad that you don’t appear to totally disagree with the possibility of being able to reduce my hours as time goes by. Whilst I have a long way to go before I catch up to your expertise, I am confident that I will achieve success with time.
      Thank you for your input. I agree that too many businesses seem to just have a Facebook presence. This is particularly annoying when as a customer you are just after their contact details and they are unable to be easily located within a Facebook page.
