Not a day goes by when a tweet flitters through my twitter-stream with “How to make money with your blog” or “Blogging for $$ Profits” and I roll my eyes and move along to tweets that might actually be interesting. But then I’m old-fashioned and not someone who’s going to get rich quick (if ever!).
So what is the point of blogging then, if it’s not to make money?
Well that really depends on what you’re about, I suggest. For the Blogmistress, for instance, the blog posts show you how do to things yourself, show you that we know what we’re doing, and so build a reputation as people to turn to for blogging and/or WordPress support.
And then for many of us, if we accept the “know, like, trust/people buy from people” way of business, then readers of your blog posts are going to get to know you, and some will then like you and so on… which of course attracts business.
But to blog with the sole aim of making money – I wonder how often that actually works, in real life…
What do you think?
