In today's digital age, it's become more and more common to hear about people giving up their 9-5 desk jobs in favour of pursuing their freelance dreams. Sure, sometimes it doesn't work out and they crash and burn before quickly returning to a steady source of income - but sometimes it does. In a big way. It's not unheard of to learn of bloggers making over six figures per year off of the content they post. The Internet is a huge place and there's a demographic for all sorts of content; whether you're writing about health, travel, fashion, food or photography. Many of the most successful bloggers have zeroed in on a specific niche and have become pioneers in their chosen fields as a result. They know that there's an entire world hungry for information out there and that their websites provide the instant, gratifying eye candy or reading material that their demographic craves.
The best bloggers have made it to where they are by consistently posting new content and constantly finding creative ways to communicate with their target market. After building up an audience, their revenue comes from ad sales on their sites or partnerships with like-minded brands and companies. $5,000 to $10,000 is the standard fee paid out to top fashion and lifestyle bloggers nowadays to make an appearance at an event and endorse it to their endless followers. From there, they are often given the opportunity to collaborate with companies by producing content for them or designing products for them to sell. As if that wasn't enough to think about, many bloggers have vocalized the need to be selective when it comes to partnerships in order to keep their images on brand. We've compiled a list of ten of the most successful ones who make over $100,000 per year and have made a full-time job out of pursuing their passions.
