Blogging’s global reach has created a new generation of influencers who daily affect brands’ relationships with their audiences and bloggers are increasingly interested in establishing long-term partnerships with brands. But they’re not prepared to do that at any cost. Whilst greater numbers start blogging as a hobby (33%), 20% say they blog to earn a living. What is abundantly clear is that while there is a desire to monetise blogs – 50% of bloggers state that they expect to earn a living from blogging – the majority of respondents (77%) claim that a financial benefit or incentive will not distract them from their niche or commitment to their audience.
