Is it even possible to earn money from blogging on WordPress?

As a Forty Plusser that is new to this WordPress Blogging world, I just want to know if anyone of you ever actually received/made money from blogging on WordPress? Or do you get absolutely zilch in terms of ad revenue?

I read the following:  If you think you’ll be earning tons of money with WordAds, you’re definitely wrong!

I read the following: How and when do I get paid?
A: WordAds pays monthly via PayPal. Payments are sent around the last day of the following month. If you earned less than $100 in a given month, your earnings will carry over to the next month instead. 

I read the following: Rates are vastly different depending on the country the viewer is visiting from. 

I read the following: And while you may see a lot of traffic from US visitors, there’s no guarantee that those are the users who are seeing your ads due to the proliferation of ad blockers.

I read the following:  What is actually more important is who the audience is that is viewing the ads.

I read the following:  Now WordAds doesn’t make public what each country impression rate is  but from what I have gathered doing research online, it is known that the U.S. and U.K. are two of the highest paying countries and two of the lowest paying are India and China.

I read the following:  One day I’ll earn something. Keep the faith, as they say! Still, it helps to pass the time. Good luck everyone!

So here are my questions for those bloggers that actually makes money:

  • How many views do you actually need to get $1.00 a day?
  • Views from which visitors/country/geography actually generate an income?
  • What WordPress plan you are using?  Personal, Premium and Business.   
  • How many hours do you spend on blogging each day

    Can you monitor the results? Are there stats.

    You would also need the premium theme that allows advertising and that’s £7 per month.

    I was also thinking about this but as I blog for enjoyment I wondered if it would take the F out of fun.

    It will be interesting to see if anyone who makes money replies.

  4. I’ve wondered all of the above! I earned a single cent (lolz) in November 2018 and I reckon – through very amateur detective work – that it was because I posted every day and so more ads were able to be run on my site. What you say about the countries viewing the posts is very interesting and I wonder how true it is?
