    Does blogging in blogspot really make money because I've created my blog site and will allow me 6 months before I can promote money out of it.

    It depends on what you are blogging. If your posts attract thousands of visitors then you can make some money but it's never going to be enough to pay the bills.

    You mean earning money by having adsense on your blog or you want to make your blog an ecommerce platform?

    It makes no sense for Google to place an ad on a website no one visits. This is why you need to wait 6 months before joining adsense. Your blog needs to develop a following so there will be sufficient visitors to your blog to make advertising worthwhile. And, as fisicx mentioned, you probably won't make enough to pay the bills. If you want to actually make the blog an ecommerce platform, as The View Abu Dhabi suggested, you will also need a following, and will need to market the blog to bring traffic to it.

    No blog can give you money instantly. You have to work for it. Try to post unique and interesting content to your blog, share them on social media sites and eventually it will get popular. Once the blog will be popular, more and more traffic will come, thus you can earn from that blog by placing the ads.

    I think what he meant was would he be able to get money out of a blog after 6 months working on it. Anyway you have a strong point that there have to be sufficient visitors to make money.
    Personally, I see 2 ways that bloggers make money.
    1. Place an advertisement on the site - you site just needs to get a lot of traffic.
    2. Sell products with your own brand - you need to build a community with your own culture. this way is more difficult

    Not worth the hassle unless your blog is ranking on serps. I believe if you are serious about business, then go grab a domain and only then blog.

    I have been blogging on blogspot since 2012, now I can monetize from Adsense around 2 dollars a day. Start with lack of knowledge, I keep writing contents and re-layout blog page bit by bit, day by day. That's my milestone to make money without investment of money.

    Though, it consumes my time to do it as it's my extra income.

    Let me know if you are looking for some piece of knowledge about blogspot.

    One can surely make a very good living doing blogging in blogspot but it all depends of what he has to offer on his blog. If he is posting informative, helpful and interesting content then he is very likely to have good traffic and good following. Once he has started getting good traffic to his blog then he can do different things to make money from this blog, he can place paid ads on his blog, he can use adsense, he can use affiliate links etc.

    blogging platform has nothing to do with the revenue it can generate. It will all come down to the quality of content and the number of traffic you can get.

    Also, you don't need to wait until 6 months for you to earn money from it. For example if you are going to apply for adsense, you can check their guidelines and apply them to your site. As soon as you get approved, you get a chance to earn money from your blog.
