Why Do We Blog : Networking, Make Money, Hobby, Diary?

"Why do you blog?" I asked. “Ask yourself, ‘So what?’ before you start blogging. Will your blog add to the world of knowledge and learning, or is it just for fun?”. I like easy answers, and by asking others perhaps I hoped to find the easy answers for myself.

For some blogging will be like a diary: a historical record of their thoughts at a moment in time.

For some it'll be like speed-networking. You get to know people in a shallow way and then develop a relationship.

For some blogger because their a writer and blogging gives them a place to put it all.

For some it'll be like business platform (make money online/make money blogging/home based business) and some blogger really earn big income. Some of example of blog entrepreneur income for June :
1. Duckeldanny.com ($585.59)
2. Michaelaulia.com ($109.42)
3. Makingmymoneyonline247 ($400.83)
4. Makemoneyonline-x ($550.09)
5. Bloggernoob.com ($11,471.12)
6. JohnChow dot com ($40,125.99)

For still others it'll be something else entirely.

I have friends with blogs specifically dedicated to technology, politics, music, photography and public relations, and yet I am not so focused, probably because I’m passionate about too many things.

I started blogging some months ago largely to pass time, share experiences, building my social network and makes the money. And I also enjoy being a member of the blogging community. Via this community I've met numerous people and developed all sorts of relationships that would never had occurred if not for the practice of blogging. I blog to keep up my spirit; to stir the spirit of others; to stir my blood, my brain, and my beliefs.

  2. Thanks for the linky.. I wouldn't call myself an Enterpreneur though with that incomie :D

    I used to blog for fun only, but if you can earn a bit, why not?

  3. I blog to make money. Unfortunately, I'm barely earning any. Now, I blog to learn things again then blog about it to see what I've missed why i'm barely getting anything from my effort.

  7. I blog for fun, to have a place to keep all my writing in one place (a couple places since I have a few blogs with different themes), to keep me motivated to reach a goal, as an online journal, and if I make a few pennies along the way to cover the cost of hosting I'm happy. :)

  18. I blog for fun and to meet new people,I started blogging when we moved to another country as a means keeping in touch with my friends and family. Focusing on one area will be difficult for me because like you am so passionate about so many things.I am into a lot of offline business that I don't really care about making money from my blogs now all i want is to do my thing which is just writing down my feelings & views.

    Well, one thing I love about blogging is the endless opportunity for me to network with people whom I might not have otherwise met without blogging. So it's pretty much a platform for networking. Monetary rewards are secondary but it's a nice bonus.

  21. OK. Well, I think you are asking one of the most difficult question to asked in the modern day. Most of the people would have said I am blogging as an online journal if it was 5,6 years back. But I believe that there will be more than 100 answers to this particular question to be given. Blogging has diversified a lot in these days. But most of the people are doing it as a way of expressing themselves to the outer world, a way of sharing their thoughts, ideas and opinions. Thanks.
