How long does it take to make a blog profitable?

How long did you work on your blog and have your blog online before you started seeing money from your blog or making a profit from your blog?

Most blogs will take a few years before they start becoming profitable as in covering the hosting and domain fees.

Then maybe 5 years in if you work hard on your blog adding content and promoting it then you could make a living from the blog.

But sometimes it can take longer than 5 years to make what you might consider a full time income from your blog.

There's no guarantee of making a living from your blog either. If you don't continue to publish great content and target the right keywords then you won't get the required website traffic to earn a living.
