But if you want to build a business, I have insight for you on the journey. Building a blog takes a long time become profitable. You’ve probably heard this advice before if you’ve spent any amount of time researching this topic already. But I’m going to try to give you a more concrete timeline you can use as a guide.

So how long will it take for you to build a successful baking blog? The best answer I’ve heard was in a private Facebook group among bloggers with at least 100,000 monthly page views. A discussion was happening inside the group after a member asked how long it took for others to hit full-time income blogging status. The responses to this question were surprising to say the least.

For most bloggers it took between 3 – 4 solid years of time and effort to make a full-time income. This full-time income was defined as $35,000 – $45,000 per year from their blog.

Looking back in my records, it had taken me three years to exceed $30,000 in revenue from my own blog. There were dozens of other bloggers who shared the same experience as me. Most didn’t make much in their first year they published, myself included. My first six months of blogging I didn’t make a dime.

Of course you can make much more than $45,000 per year after 3 years of blogging too. I’ll share my advice for moving into the blogging fast lane later in this piece if it’s something you’d like to try out for yourself.

Are you prepared to work for a full year without making any money at all? If not, save yourself the time and frustration by doing something else. If you want to make quicker cash, try starting a home-based bakery and sell cookies to friends / family members. Other ideas like service based businesses (maid service, home repair, lawn mowing) or flipping items you find at a rummage sale to sell on
