How blogging is changing people’s lifestyles

In simple terms, a blog is a website or diary where you can place information of interest, where the reader can post a feedback for everyone else to see. It is a simplified site, which can consist of series of entries and conversations.

Believe it or not blogging is changing the way people live in recent times. Great names like Brian Tracy, Robert Allen, John Chow, Cody Moya, Philomena Ojikutu, Robert Scoble and many others can boast of astounding incomes due to their blogging expertise. These bloggers generate income from their blogs by monetizing it with ads from google adsense, text link ads, smorty etc.
Pick a niche for your blog where you have some significant expertise, but make sure it’s a big enough niche that you can build significant traffic. If your blog provides genuine value, you fully deserve to earn income from it.

Robert scoble for example assists with the running of microsoft’s channel 9 website. Mr. scoble’s personal website; began in year 2000 and now has more than 3.5 million readers every year. Robert Scoble has earned fame in Fortune magazine, fast coy and The Economist for his work on business blogging.

Another is Firefox (the most popular web browser) which was launched exclusively from a blog site. 99 days of its launch, Firefox had been downloaded 25 million times, after 3 months it passed 50 million mark!

Can you imagine this feat was achieved without Firefox’s management spending a single dime on advertising expenditure. WHAO! I’d say that again.

I’m sure you’d be wondering how much in profit they must have raked in. Your guess is as good as mine.
It’s easier to drive traffic to a blog than to a traditional website. Bloggers are more inclined to link to their competitors, and therefore if you write good content you should be able to get coverage much quicker than other internet media businesses. Also, when you get more links from other bloggers you will also get more search engine traffic too.

The time to join the blogging train is now. The barriers to entry are minute, the benefits are great $$$$$$ and it happens to be fun.

To create blogs visit sites like:, wordpress, and a host of others.

Mind you the best kept secrets of blogging are having frequent entries and multiple feedback postings which help in moving your rankings well above other bloggers.
So, don’t get left out, join the blogging train and make money legitimately.
