Almost anyone who starts a blog thinks of this question? Can you really make a full time living with your blog.
The answer is yes because many people have (and are doing it). But this article from Lifehacker really caught my eye. In it they share with you what it really takes.
You can read more about it here:
Dear Lifehacker,I’m thinking about starting my own blog. I don’t expect it to make me stinking rich, but what are the chances I can quit my day job and make a living just by blogging? I see all these success stories, but how much money can I really make?

Dear BB, If you’re passionate about a subject and you have decent writing skills, blogging definitely could be an alternative career path for you. The short answer is, yes, it is possible to make a livinga very good one, evenby writing online. On the other hand, the hard truth is most of the millions of bloggers today don’t make enough to support themselves just with their blogs. Let’s take a look at what’s involved.
There are two main approaches to professional blogging: You could be a freelance or employed blogger for an established company or site (like those of us here at Lifehacker), or you can start your own blog from scratch.
Getting a job as a professional blogger is much easier than starting at ground zero with your own blog. Those who get a job with an established company can earn a good living right off the bat.
Setting up and monetizing (ugh) your own blog, however, takes a lot more work, like starting your own business. There’s no real career path or trajectory to base expectations on. Some people have made hundreds of thousands of dollars writing their blog (or sold their blogs for millions), while others have yet to make a cent from theirs.
The truth is, it’s not as easy to carve out your space on the web and make a name for yourself as a blogger today, as it was back when blogging was brand new. And it takes a lot of time to build your audience to the point where it’s successful. (The most successful, multi-million dollar blogs today were started around 2005 or earlier.) So it’s definitely not something you can get rich quickly with, though many people do work on their blogs full time.
