I am curious. Why there are so many people write blogs? Are you blogging to share your life? or Are you blogging to make some extra money? For me, I am blogging to share my experience and make some money as well. I have a personal blog, I have blogs to share my making money experience online and so on. In other words, I am sharing my life and experience to make money from blog. What about you?

I blog for a bit of all the things mentioned,just feel like ranting or sharing,so write up an article post in my blog,then link it to twitter,myspace ,facebook,copy n paste where permitted n submit to article sites,all to make some residue income,so its cool,writing about something an earning a bit from your ideas on the side. my favorite now is still learning or figuring out best ways to optimize blogs or websites.using my own blogs as testing.,so far i have learnt a lot

you guys are all so creative and knowledgeable compared to me. I started writing a blog about 4 weeks ago about moving to Thailand in the future and my journey to getb there and start an orphanage so truly I can say I'm trying to earn some income to help me live when I'm there but so far haven't made any money and truthfully don't know how to. I don't know what you all mean when you talk about link it to twitter etc -how do you link things?is it easy to do? I'd really appreciate soem guidance. By the way my blog is movingtothailand-goldie77.blogspot.com

I tried to go blogging few years ago. My problem is I don't know really have enough knowledge about it and maybe the problem with me that time is my patience.I do have time if I want to because sometimes I'm in my computer surfing and playing games for several hours. Though I have a small business but I wanted to try blogging again to develop my potential in writing for me to be more profitable in front of my computer. Thank your discussion that I have open. I hope you can help me someday

I can tell you that it is possible to make a lot of money from blog but it is extremely hard. It requires a lot of hardwork.

Hi, each individual think differently. Some just blog and some blog for money and there are few more people who blog to share their life experience like me. I have a weblog http://blog.airakesh.com/ where I write my life experience to share with you all. You need no special technical knowledge or literary abilities to start a blog.The basic rule of blogging is to choose a topic close to your heart. It's best if you love something other people also love, such as sports, politics, or celebrities and sometimes life experience. It holds particularly true if you hope to earn by blogging. Ensure that new content is contributed on a regular basis. And this can always be possible when the topic of your blog motivates you to write on a regular basis.

At first,I started my blog just to record the happy and memorable events that took place in my life. Slowly, as my readers of my blog grows, some of them suggested me to start earning some extra cash using my blog. And I find it very interesting and beneficial as these extra cash, so called the passive income, can be quite helpful to me as I am able to use them to buy some extra things that I want and need without feeling guilty of overspending. :)

I have made many blogs since I first knew about it, and to answer your question, well I blog for many reasons. First, I blog basically because I just wanted to blurt out anything about my life, second, I blog because I wanted people to somehow be inspired at my life realizations, failures and experiences.. and third, I blog because I wanted to make money out of my former blogging reasons.. i thought at first it was easy, but believe me, it really requires hardwork and dedication.. i don't even know how successful bloggers make it when i even follow their advices hehehe.. i'm still into blogging for money, but not that i blog only because of money.. i just needed some financial support and that would be great if i can make money out of my posts.. i would be glad if you'll visit my site http://rightfulliving.blogspot.com thanks :-)

I started a small blog a while ago. I need to be more active on it though. I hope to one day make money from it but I don't know how to get traffic to it. Any tips?

I think that the way to get traffic is to create good quality contents. For example, a simple personal blog and be attractive if the author have good sense of humor. This way the blog can attract a lot of people. You can try to leave comments on other blogs. This can help you increase popularity and get more traffic. You can visit my blog for more ideas to get traffic because it is too long to discuss here.

I started blogging with an immense ambition to earn money online. After working 7 to 8 months, I realized that online money making is not at all an easy task. So now, I am blogging to share my small events I came across in this field. Now also, I want to make money but I just adopted a new method. That is, sharing my experience through my blogs. I got a new friend online and he is really helping me. I was able to understand that in the first day of our meet itself. He is a member in mylot too.

I blog for both reasons. But I have a separate blog for pure personal experiences. I don't even care if some else read that blog or not. :D. I also have another blog that focuses on my interests name computers, internet and almost anything related to technology.

One main thing I know why people are so into blogs nowadays is for the reason that they want to share their lives,skills,help,or and show what they've got.I had a blog with one 2 pages before but that was only an assignment for my school.I also learned that you can make money out of a blog I want to try it.Im now stuck on what to blog about that would make my blog earn from the topic that I will choose.But I really just want a blog that I can freely discuss anything that I want to but based on my research,not having a niche will not help somebody to earn from his blog that well.I guess if Im a celebrity or a controversial person I might be able to discuss anything that I want because there would be a possible followers but Im not any of these.Haha.Well Im still on the process on starting a blog and Im still thinking what to blog about.I guess Im blogging both for myself and to earn money.
