From the bloggers at Gypsy Journal RV.
I get a lot of e-mails from RVers and wannabe RVers. Most of the time they are nice folks with legitimate questions and I try my best to answer them with advice, or if I don’t know the answer I try to point them in the direction of somebody who does. But sometimes I just have to shake my head and ask myself, “What the heck are you thinking?”
I got two such e-mails in the last couple of days. One is from a couple who want to fulltime who said they are a family with four kids and three dogs. Unfortunately they have big dreams and no sense of reality. And no money. They told me they had read the book ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income, which is actually a pretty good book on blogging, and were now coming to me for real-world advice on how to make money with a blog about their RV travels.
They said they need to make $3,000 a month with a blog and added that their biggest expense will be their combined RV and car payments, which total $1450. “We know that some people spend a lot more money, but we are minimalists,” they added.
I’m sorry, but you can’t make that kind of money with an RV blog, nor can you support your family, pay for fuel and insurance, campgrounds, and other expenses on $1550 a month.
