Is making money thru BLOGGING for me?

When I first started this blog 2 years ago, getting profit out of it did not really came across to my mind.  I just want a place where I can express myself.  Most of the articles here are all about what I did, what I feel or what I thought on that particular day.  Yes, I do earn quite a bit through paid articles and adsense and I'm already happy with it until I was able to actually talked to one of the successful internet marketer.  I met him online not knowing that he make money out of internet marketing.  I just actually found out when one time we talked about jobs.

We haven't talked for a long time and one day he said hi to me and asked me what am I doing.  I told him that I'm updating my resume and that I'm looking for a new job and so on and so forth.  That's how our conversation started until he told me about his job.  He told me that he has a business and his business goes around the internet.  So I asked if he has a blog and he told me that blogging helped him get his first million $$$ online.  Whaaattt??  I was shocked.  Is this man telling the truth?  I told myself that yes, I do get money out of blogging but it's just so few and I told him about that.  He just laughed and said that I should first find my niche.

Darn niche!  I always heard that when successful people talked about how they became successful.  But the question is how to get that niche?  So, I told him I also have a blog but I never get that amount of money out of it.  So I begun questioning him how he got his first million $$$ thru blogging.  There are actually many ways, he told me but he told me that you need to be patient and hardworking and of course you need to have a system.  Oh well, successful companies do have their own system.

I got so curious that I begun to search for successful bloggers online and one that really caught my attention is about Yaro Starak, one of the successful bloggers who make big bucks online.  I subscribed to his blog to pick up his brain.  I'm really fascinated the way he gave advice.

Right now, I'm on the process of creating new blog.  I don't want to mix it with this blog of mine because I intend to keep this blog as my personal journal.  I also joined Yaro's forum at  I also got some free mentorship about building my very own blog. But of course, no matter how much coaching I got, I understand that my success is all in my hands right now.  I may be able to get their ideas and system but putting it into practice or implementing it real time is the hardest one and it will takes my time and effort to do so. 

Now, I'm really confused on what to focus for my experiment blog and maybe you can help me pick the topic for it.  My friend told me that I need to list down all the things that interest me and pick-up the best one for my experiment.  It may takes a little while before I will know of course but maybe with your help I might be able to get some statistics that will help me decide what to focus on.
