Well, I have seen blogging not as career but more on self employed or business owner. You can gain much by actively blogging and not depends on your boss or management..good luck..

That one is tricky. You can write and write, but no one is actually on the other side listening to what you say. That's my experience with blogging. It's frustrating sometimes.

Look! I've discovered you. Blogging is a very rewarding career. Hubpages and Triond are good sites to help you practice writing. It's not a problem if you don't have good penmanship. The only thing you need is creativity and thougtful thoughts.

That is really enough to establish yourselves a s a blogger. But writing alone does not matter you have to learn something regarding seo, keywords and others.

Who says blogging is just a small time job? It may be true in the short run but if you establish yourself competitively on the blogging market, I believe your gonna earn more than you could imagine. There is only one thing that I hate about blogging. One of the best bloggers is famous out of his gossips he make on his blogs.

Yes, you are right! And oh, I am not into gossips.. I blog more about the things I see around me and more about my opinion!

That is good to know Ed. Keep up the good work. I know you can really make it because if you are really determined on what you are doing right now, you can really achieve your goal, slowly but surely. There are a lot of successful bloggers out there who are earning unlimited income and I really envy those people who know the secret of blogging. Personally, I like writing but not the kind of person who has a lot of things to write hehe. I like to see your blog to be successful someday Ed and when that time comes, I hope you would share your secrets to me too hehe. GOD bless you always and get well soon.

While me, I always ran out of things to write but when I don't intend to write, lots of ideas are coming in. Oh, I hope I'll be successful in blogging someday! And of course, I will share it as long as I have it.

Me too! I always have trouble finding topics to write about. What to share in blog, what to share in mylot, what to write in Triond. But when I'm out walking I get a lot of ideas! When I get in front of the computer either I forget them or won't think it's a good idea anymore.

This may be a stupid question but how do you start you own blog? I see people on here have their own blog and I was wondering how do you go about it? If you are willing to share please let me know. Thanks

For beginners. Blogger.com is really great! :)

Sorry, edds Blogger is not that great. there are many spammy blogs as it is free and allows monetisation. Yes for beginners it works but i really suggest you go for wordpress. You can also set up a free blog too. Just download wordpress from wordpress.org and install it into a free host. Get a .tk domain and you are done with your website. This is suitable for temporary blogs and some niche sites. .tk is always not recommended and better to buy a .com and hosting form hostgator or bluehost. Hope this helps.

Well, blogging is a good also to express our ideas and feelings. I am blogging because it will ease my problems. Every time I feel unease I will try to write a blog. This will makes me comfortable and forgot things which is always bothering... You can be a successful blogger I know. Because I see your dedication into kind of internet field. I have a website that I really express my disappointment in something that I want to learn but now will teach me how. So I decide to make a blog with my self to share what I have learn and what I know... If you do blogging. Do not forget to have a little understand of seo so that your blog will be seen to millions of people around the world or a thousand... That is the purpose of blogging to be star and make some money...

Sites like Naukri, bharat matriminy, mylot, facebook are all blogs. they have turned into big companies. Blogs are of different types. People are not only making a living, they have been offering jobs too. I am an Indian and justdial.com is a blog which is a local search engine. It has a huge employee base and the owner created the self employment opportunity for himself. My friend earns 1200$ per month from blogging. I am not dare enough because i do not even have some money. Hence doing all this kind of stuff. All the best to you.

I tried out doing a few blogs a couple of years ago. I love writng, and Iloved the way I had the versatility on blogs to be creative with presentation. But it was never goiung to be a money earning thing for me. I would have liked to earnt a good income form blogging, but it takes a huge amount of work. Your blogs need to be a high interest category, plus, I think, you need to join blogging exchanges sites. I have heard of poeple earning good money from blogging. Good luck with it.

In blogging there are really disadvantages and advantages too and we have to deal with if we really are determined, right? :) I'm still studying the pros and cons of it and I think I can survive (I hope so) . Am staying positive as I can.. and I hope I can make it to the top! :)

I think you have just written something. Success wont come by doing so. You have to optimize it and then you should build links and should get decent traffic. Then the money rolls.

Hi edsss17. I used to hate English (it is my second language). After reading about its earning potential on the internet, I decided to give blogging a try. I created my own blog and started writing on HubPages, too. Now, it's already six months. I've gained some friends. I also realized that I can actually write. One of my articles had been shared on HubPages' Facebook page. Writing has really been a rewarding "job". I want to be able to do this for the rest of my life. I'm glad to have found a new hobby that I'm passionate about. Good luck on your blogging! I'm sure that you will improve! I'm still a bit confused with this site (I'm new here), but I'm going to look for your blog.:)

OH hi cheerfulnuts! YOu will get used to here in myLot like me! :) And its great to know that you are very passionate in writing. It sure is very rewarding even though people says that writing will just kill you because of hungriness since we don't earn much from it. I will do my best to prove them wrong! :) Happy myLotting and welcome! :)

Yay,sorry my dear bunso for my delayed reply,been busy at home,it was my son's birthday last two days ago,hehe! I know you are great in blogging bunso,keep it up! More practice leads to perfection. I cannot fully focus on my blog yet due to my othet online sites,yay! When it comes to grammar,try to ask brewed or inay likha to check your writings before submitting,you will surely learn from them. I am lucky to have someone to check my articles bunso,he is a good stumbler friend of mine and I really appreciate what he does,I am learning so much! I am just shy to always approach him so as much as possible,I am doing what he has told me. And when I still have some corrections to be made,when I share my article to him,he always reply and tell me my wrong spelling(sometime I do have wrong spellings,yay!) and some grammar,haha!
