Let’s face it, we all would love to make a whole lot of cash from our blogs, but I want to point out that blogging doesn’t necessarily have to be all about money. So what are some of the other things that we can get out of blogging.
- Satisfaction From Helping Someone : I reckon I get a whole lot more exited when I am able to help someone through a post or even a comment from within a post, than from the measly few bucks I earn from Google.
- Recognition By Others: This may come in several forms, from a simple trackback from a post you wrote to having your blog chosen as the Featured Blog for the week.
- Exposure: This can be tied in with Recognition, and it’s really great to have someone email you to ask if they can use some of the material that you posted in a blog. This happened at my ScenicAdelaide blog where the editor of an Australian magazine called Discovering Stone, which is aimed at the natural stone industry, asked if she could use a photo from my Three Rivers Fountain in Victoria Square post. No money changed hands but the credits showed me as the photographer as well as a link to the blog.
See, blogging doesn’t necessarily have to be all about making money as there are lots of things that can make it an extremely satisfying venture. Blogging may provide loads of ways of satisfying a bloggers life, and I would really be interested to find ouy what it is that you get out of blogging.
