Can you prove that Blogging can generate 6 digit income per month?
There are many bloggers who have done this over the period of time and are earning huge amounts. The best example is Arianna Huffington the owner of HuffingtonPost. Similarly, there are many names in India as well, some of them are Harsh Aggarwal of shoutmeloud.com, Shraddha Sharma of yourstory.com, Nandini Shenoy of pinkvilla.com.

I have written a detailed article on how to earn money from a blog. This article also gives you a basic understanding of creating a blog and generating traffic from it.
Having a venture of your own gives you the freedom to pursue your passion. Most of us are stuck in a 9 to 6 job. Blogging gives you freedom from 9 to 6 job culture and in addition, it gives you the freedom to work from any part of the world. Like Harsh and Pardeep travel to different places however their work is not impacted. Pardeep published his experience of staying in Goa for a month without any impact on his work. He also went on vacation to Bangkok. Similarly, Harsh frequently travels abroad and continue his work while he is enjoying the vacations.
