Why do you blog?

June 11, 2007 12:27am CST
I have seen people who create blogs to earn money via adsense and other advertising and promotions add-ons they put in there. I started blogging thinking I could do the same but realized as soon as I started doing background research that I just can't write articles at will, it's either I'm in the mood or not. If the subject does not appeal to me I can't string two words together to save my life. So I ended up with a blog that talks about my current interest which is Shinhwa, writing and more Shinhwa. Some people might think its lame but honestly I realized that if I'm going to spend many hours of the day maintaining it I might as well spend those hours doing something I enjoy. If one day I found out another hobby or activity that I enjoy you can bet that I probably would create another blog for it. How about you....why do you blog?

Yeah you are blogging is very easy job. It requires a lot of hard work. Monetizing the blog comes second, first important thing is the appealing content which are written for the readers. If you can't write good and unique content and there's no use of monetizing the blog because very less visitor will stick around your blog. The very first option that I think a blogger should write on is a topic that he or she feels passionate and interested in because because your feelings and emotion shows through your writings. And you will never run out of topic.

Well said. I've made 3 blogs (or lenses) on Squidoo and it seems the one that's doing the best is the one I am passionate about. (Photography)

I haven't made any money from my blogs and writing. And honestly I don't care, So long that I am happy with what I'm doing then I'm fine with it.

I blog because I love to write. I like making money, nothing wrong there, but I do not like to see blogs with how to make millions, or just money making blogs, unless they give some financial advise. My blogger is all about writing, not from a famous published author's point of view, but from someone who has only one or two articles published because she does not have the money to send her work yet to ten or more agents or publishers. You know, the struggles. I am not into posting pictures or illustrations. I might try though. I do not know about Shinhwa. What is it exactly? I will take a look at it.
