Over the past couple of years since developing interest in blogging, nay making money blogging, I have always sought to uncover what these six figure bloggers are doing that I'm not doing. You know, sometimes I think I'm a better blogger than most of these blogging celebrities! ?

Make Money Blogging Advice Abounds Every Where, But…
As a blogger you definitely have read or heard both newbie and veteran bloggers advice that to make money blogging you need to
>>> choose a niche you're passionate and knowledgeable about,
>>> write unique and useable content,
>>> post regularly,
>>> market your blog through various ways like blog commenting, article marketing, forum marketing etc.
However, I want to say as much as all these are important and necessary, there is definitely something that is missing in them. Read any blog out there that offer tips on making money blogging and you'll discover that all of them give this same advice. Everywhere you turn you receive this type of information as the “insider secrets” to making millions as a blogger.
But have you ever asked yourself if you're not doing these things? If you’re sincere to yourself you must be doing more than enough. But the question is:
>>> why are you not making the type of income these super probloggers are making right now?
>>> Why is everyone not producing the same results if this is all that it takes to make a six figure income blogging?
To really uncover the secrets of these probloggers I've being studying this subject of making money with blogs over the past few years and I've asked many questions of successful bloggers trying to understand what really made them successful.
From my research and studies I've come to realize that making a six figure income blogging is more than just writing and publishing blog posts. Unfortunately, many of those making six figures as bloggers are not very likely to give you their secrets unless of course, if they can sell it to you in an ebook!
But, the truth is if you are serious about making that amount of money and you're ready to invest in it, chances are you could be a six figure blog marketing guru as well!
The Secret Is Not Really… A Secret!
Ok, I want to say that what I’ve uncovered is not really a secret except you have not taken time to figure this out before now. When I say it's a secret uncovered, I’m actually using that phrase as a personal experience. Yes, it's a secret to many of us but for those who have looked carefully at what the probloggers are doing; it is simply an open secret!
So what is this secret?
Please read carefully…
Six Figure Income Blogging Is More Than Likely Not Done With One Single Blog!
In simple terms, you cannot achieve a six figure income running just one blog. It would take many many blogs to create a six figure income! This is the one secret that has set the probloggers from the pack.
The truth is there is so much that one blog can earn for you! You may be the most wonderful blogger out there but if all your labor is focused on just one blog, you might just be working a job and not building an online business.
How To Put This Six Figure Income Blogging Secret To Work
If you are a blogger who is finding it hard to maintain just one blog, your concern may be, how do you expect to run multiple blogs concurrently when running one is already taking much of your time? If this is your concern then the following may be of help. These are some of the things these probloggers are doing that many of us are not doing right now. From my studies if you'll add these ones to what you're already doing, you'll be on your way to making your own six figure income as a blogger very soon.
1. Be an Entrepreneur and Not Just a Blogger
Sometime ago I wrote a blog post on how to build a business and not just a blog. The truth is making a six figure income blogging demands the mindset of an entrepreneur. If you are still seeing yourself as just a blogger you'll be missing a whole lot of things. I think this blog post by Yaro Starak will give you an idea about what I’m talking about here. The lesson I learnt from that post is simply the fact that you must be an entrepreneur to make the kind of money you desire as a blogger.
2. Develop Systems
The first thing you should do is to document your blogging activities with the mind of developing systems you can put into use at any time. One of the gains of developing systems is that with such systems you'll be able to accomplish more with less time. With a tested and trusted system you can easily transfer that knowledge to other markets without much stress.
3. Outsource Your Work
If you truly want to make a six figure income as a blogger then outsourcing some work to others is not a bad idea. Doing all of the work yourself is not something that is possible if you want to make that amount of money. Just be sure that you hire those that you can trust and have a great reputation for getting work done on time and accurately. If you've developed systems as suggested above outsourcing your work to others will be much easier as you will be able to decide on an outline of what is needed and provide these to the people you're hiring. This will ensure that your work can be done to specification. For example you may need some persons to set up your blogs others to write the content for the blogs and yet others to market them using social networking sites. Once your systems are in place all these activities will be done with much ease and to specification. The good news is that you can easily find experts on particular markets in places like this one and pay them for the rights to their articles.
Conclusion: I believe making a six figure income with blogs is definitely something you can do as a blogger. The first thing that you would need to do is find profitable markets. Set up multiple blogs in these markets and then get the right people to manage the blogs for you. Just be sure that you hire those that know what they are doing and are fluent in the language that you are marketing in as well. Someone that speaks and writes poor English will not help your income, but may hurt it if you have English based readers.
