5 Authoritative Blogs that Teach Me How to Reach My First $1000 a Month Online

3rd December 2008

I started to enter the make money online and web investing about 9 months ago.

I am an off line entrepreneur before, and I found out that the online marketplaces and the online businesses inside are lucrative. The barrier to entry, in my opinion, is your willingness to learn and resilience.

Sure, there are big guys on the Net that rake in millions of dollars a year from their online businesses, but there are (still) places for you and I to explore and make money from the Internet and blogosphere.

In term of blogging, this blog is a better blog today because of other bloggers, that happen to be the authoritative voices in the blogoshpere. The probloggers or A-list bloggers or any names that refer to the blogging authorities offer valuable tips – for free – on how to get to what they are right now.

I learn from them on how to create valuable contents that are useful for my blogs’ visitors. Why learn from them? Because each of them starts just like you and I starts blogging and/or make money online – know a little about blogging, but a HUGE desire to success.

I guess desire is what separate those A-listers to the rest of us.

5 blogs that changes my life

I make quite a bit money online. Not considered a huge success, but my journey in web investing is off to a good start.

For sure, I has passed the $1000 mark – a milestone that according to Yaro Starak, one of the A-lister I follow, a difficult milestone to achieve, and things would be easier afterward – hopefully 🙂

All thanks to these 5 blogs that radically changes my mindset about online money making:


This is the blog that, in my case, starts it all – a down-to-earth guy, yaro Starak, the blog owner, offers tips that are legitimate and doable in make money online and web business in general. Yaro also run a blogging membership site, Blog Mastermind, and just launched a new one, Become a Blogger, a video coaching program.

The most inspiring blog post of his is How To Buy A Website And Flip It For Profit.


Darren Rowse, the owner and blogger, offer one of the best advice on the Net on blogging – how to increase traffic and convert those traffic into revenue. He started it all as a hobby. He is also the founder of an authoritative blogs network – b5media.

One of his blog post that kick my @ss to start learning to make money online is How Bloggers Make Money from Blogs.


Brian Clark’s CopyBlogger is a heaven for writers and bloggers. The tips on article writing and copy writing are helping me to be a better writer. It is named among the best blogs in the world, such as Technorati’s 50 most popular blog in the world.

One article that lights me up is 10 Effective Ways to Get More Blog Subscribers.

4. (not John Chow) is one of the blog rockstar on blogosphere. Its posts are often controversial, but truthful.

One of the most interesting post is When To Outsource Your Blog Writing.


Last but not least, BloggingTips is one of the most easiest source of FREE information on blogging. Try the phrase “blogging tips” into Google search, and voila! You’ll get on #1. A multi-author blog, BloggingTips offer, well, blogging tips from different perspectives.

I actually don’t have a special post that change my view on blogging from this blog, but recently, one of my favourite posts I read from this blog is A Unique, Free Marketing Tool for Freelance Writers and Bloggers.

So, there’s there. Hopefully you learn as much as I did from those 5 blogs who set the trends of blogging and make money today.

    Thanks for dropping by! I’ve learned about your SyndicateKahuna, and will try it as a publisher on my new upcoming blog.

    So far, I think Syndicate Kahuna will ‘save’ autobloggers from irrelevant and low quality contents 🙂
