Do you know in India, all those bloggers who are making lakhs of rupees monthly? Well! If you know them, then you can also get inspired and make money online through blogging. These bloggers are not any superheroes. They are normal human beings like you and me who are making huge money only through blogging.
The amount of money that they make, runs into lakhs. In fact, highly qualified doctors and engineers do not make this amount of money. It takes years and years of hard work to become a successful doctor, engineer or a lawyer.
However, here these bloggers are very young and still making money more than a doctor or a lawyer. To become like them you do not need any investment or money, you can start right from your desktop.
Although I am not making like these bloggers because I am still learning but still I managed to earn INR 2 million from AdSense last year plus some earnings from affiliate marketing & SEO training.
