Uh oh … add another blog on the blogosphere
So yeah, this is what the world needs right now … another blog! It’s become a cliché that everyone unemployed now has her/his own blog. If this is true, then there must be millions of new blogs popping up everywhere. Many people start a blog, but they soon find out that blogging is hard work. It requires passion, dedication, and commitment to the subject … and it needs to be timely. All that and you have to write something that somebody else wants to read. Therein lays the rub.
According to Technorati, the average blogger earns just $6000 per year (US). I’m not sure what to think of this. My first thought was wow, you mean I can make a buck off this deal?! My next thought was what the hell is an “average” blogger? In any regard, it doesn’t much matter to me because I ain’t doing this for the money. Believe me the time and effort spent is way more valuable than $6000 measly dollars a year.
So, why am I doing this you ask?
There are lots of reasons to blog. My main purpose is to share experiences with family, friends and readers of my personal and professional transformation to a more sustainable life. That’s right, I’m on the path to a more sustainable life. I don’t want to take this journey alone, I want many others to join me. I’m like that. Truth is I’ve been planning to do this blog for almost two years and just now gett’n to it. Timing is everything, so this is the time.
I’ve always been a writer and feel I can articulate my thoughts and describe my actions better via this medium. Well, I suppose you’ll be the judge of THAT!
