The bloggers you thought earn a lot of money are broke. There are bloggers and blogs which get low traffic but make a lot of money. Kenyan bloggers make money through AdSense, AdSense alternatives like MGID,affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, direct banners and by selling their own products on the blogs. Others also act as social media influencers.
