Blogging as a Real Job?

Sure, there is money that can be made. It takes time and patience but it can be worth it.

Blogging on the Internet, creating web sites, Internet advertising, etc. is popular. Come on, we know it's also big business, if handled in the right way. There are many individuals that misuse and abuse it and then there's folks like us-:)

There was a write up in Yahoo about how the internet has changed journalism. I think most of us would agree that it has, but when you read this article, I think it downplays blogging and web-site creation. You be the judge, maybe I'm a little sensitive.

Honestly, I think we're proving the naysayers wrong. Blogging and web site creation is the present and the future and we are helping to streamline it. It's not hard, anyone can do it. If there is something that you like talking about, something that you love, your favorite past-time, hobby, anything, whatever it is, you can blog about it and/or create a website about it. Here are some links that have helped me create and maintain my blogs/websites. They're worth looking into. And these websites are legit, they are not scam artists.

I currently have 3 blogs under the Blogger.com via Google and one website that I am in the process of getting from from Site Sell. They are definitely worth looking into.
