Blogging- Learning and Earning

 Blogging is writing a series of articles on a particular subject.  Anyone who writes a blog is a blogger.  Bloggers write about about a cause, an idea, an interest, an event or activity.  Consequently, there are thousands and thousands of blogs and bloggers.

Could You Be A Blogger?

Philip Bump, writing for the Washington Post online, in March of 2015 suggested that there are millions of bloggers in the United States.  However, he points out that it is difficult to arrive at a number because no specific blogging tool is used to carry bloggers to the internet.  Social media allows everyone to be kind of a blogger.

Accidental Blogging

Blogging on social media is usually informal.  People post about an interest or an event a few times.  They soon move on to other topics.  But, they are blogging when they write several posts related to each other.   Is social media the place where you share about things you have done?  Do you tell the world about family events or favorite restaurants?   As you travel, do you document trips.  Do you post about your achievements?   You’re blogger at heart.


Wikipedia defines a blog as, “A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog)[1] is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”).”

Bloggers write to:

  1. Share their opinions, interests and talents.
  2. Influence others.
  3. Create discussion.
  4. Connect like minded people.
  5. Earn income.

Many bloggers post to their blog several times daily.  This means that the author must be truly knowledgeable and passionate about the subject of the blog.  Everyone has some kind of interest.  Most of us have not thought about sharing that interest with others.

  1. Hi 🙂 I really enjoyed your post. As a blogger myself I remember how difficult it was to get started. I didn’t know where to find all the information about running a website and SEO was really overwhelming to me.
    Wealthy Affiliate really helped me along, it was a safe place where I could learn and ask questions from others with more experience than me in various subjects and help others with my own knowledge about writing in return.
    Even now that I don’t need the guidance so much anymore, I still like to discuss with other bloggers and get some new fresh ideas. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to start making some money online.

    • Thanks for stopping by my site. WA is a great place to continue to learn and consult. I still go over lessons from time to time to refresh things in my mind. My main site is on fishing is which something I really enjoy. Its fun and something I have always wanted to do. You site is beautiful….. peaceful. I appreciated your story. Thanks, again.

  2. This is something I have always been interested in. It has been a dream of mine to start a blog on one of the things I love doing the most and that is grilling. I feel as though I have so much great info to share and really want to help people great wonderful meals with friends and family.

    I have heard about Wealthy Affiliate in the past and the things I have heard have been all positive. A few things I would be interested to know is if they have any type of one on one mentoring for beginners like myself. Is there an active community who are easy to reach and support each other? Lastly, how would you rank their technical support and do they reply quickly?

    • Hi, Patrick thanks for stopping by. I looked at your site. As a person who grills, almost every day, I really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed your writing. I will email you a bit about WA.

  3. Hi There,
    Over the course of a couple of years, I had been toying with the idea of starting a blog. I always seemed to have an excuse for not doing it. The main reason was that I never knew what the heck to blog about. Have you ever had this feeling? I don’t have any big hobbies or special interests so I was stumped.
    Then I ran into Wealthy Affiliate and just ran with the blogging niche and now I couldn’t be happier!

    At first, I was worried that no one would have an interest in the things that I had to say but that was false and now I have five pages ranking very well in the Google charts and even better in Bing!
    This is a great program and I would recommend it to anyone!


    • Thanks so much for stopping by. I had the same thoughts as I started out mostly because blogging was so new to me. I have learned a great deal and have had success with my sites. All the best as you continue on.

  4. I am a fellow blogger, James, but not one to ‘keep a daily log of discreet events’ on social media platforms. I do like to retain my privacy when it comes to my personal life, especially as the great Wide World Web can become quite intrusive, and very quickly too. But I looove the internet as through my websites it gives me the opportunity to share my passions. Just like you here!

    • Thanks for leaving a comment. I am pretty new to this. I have a blog on fishing… as well as one on a medical issue … This one is in the beginning stages, but its interesting to do the research. All the best.
