Professional blogging is a very new idea with a lot of
potential for entrepreneurs who have insight, drive, and
a basic understanding of today’s innovative web
technology. The ranks of so-called pro bloggers are still
quite small, and there are very few people who make
their living entirely off of their blogs. However, every
day there are more and more people who have managed
to turn their weblogs into cash cows that supplement
their income. The number of pro bloggers is growing by
leaps and bounds, but it is difficult to say whether this
trend will continue.
Many bloggers dream of entering the sphere of
professional blogging. There are very few people who
happily devote an hour or more each day to their blog
without at least occasionally wishing that they could
earn some kind of financial reward for all of their work.
Several models exist for making money with a blog, the
most popular being to sell advertising space through
Google’s AdSense program or directly to a company
that wishes to reach the demographic that your blog
appeals to. However, there are very few people indeed
who can make a comfortable living just by selling space
on their blog sidebars.
A lot of the people who read weblogs are bloggers
themselves, in part because of the fact that the people
who use blogging technology on a daily basis are most
likely to be interested in what other writers are doing
with the medium. This fact begins to explain why the
people who succeed in the world of professional
blogging are mostly people who have devoted
themselves almost entirely to learning about, talking
about, and writing about blogging. More than any other
topic, pro bloggers turn their attention to the
phenomenon of blogging itself. A lot of pro bloggers
make the topic of blogging the stunningly self-reflexive
ongoing focus of their blogs.
Of course, professional blogging is destined to become
much more complicated in the future than it is today. In
the current moment, pro bloggers who attract the largest
audiences and make the most money are mostly
concerned with investigating the blogging movement
and with offering advice to amateur bloggers. However,
as the kinds of people who regularly read blogs
changes, and the demographics of bloggers expand and
diversify as blogging software becomes more user
friendly, it is very likely indeed that the world of pro
blogging will begin to reflect these changes. Indeed, it
is very difficult to predict exactly what kinds of blogs
will be reaping the greatest financial rewards five or ten
years down the road. The world of pro blogging is one
of constant change and flux, which is part of what
makes it so exciting.
