Blogging is a new trend in the 21st century. Millions of people create their own blogs on websites like WordPress, Weebly and Tumblr. Blogs are all made for completely different reasons, and they all have completely different audience’s. If you are good enough at “blogging”, you can even make a living off of it. It is an interesting concept, that someone can make over 100K a year from posting videos, photos, recipes or anything that entertains their online community.
Two decades ago, if you told someone “I want to be a professional blogger when I grow up,” they would look at you like you had lost your mind because no would have imagined 20 years ago what a blogger is. A lot of people have their own definition of a blogger. Some examples of these definitions being, “a person who expresses how they feel on a blog,” or “someone who documents every single piece of unnecessary information and uploads it onto the internet.”
My personal definition of a blogger, honestly depends on their blog. Different types of blogs that I have come across have been ones dedicated to food and recipes, makeup and beauty tips, fashion, video games and traveling. A large amount of people who have a blog, don’t make money off of it but they still upload their thoughts, photos and videos onto it as if it is like an online personal diary.
Their a multiple steps to become a professional blogger and some people put hard work and dedication into making their blog famous, and others sometimes get lucky. In all actuality, if you want your blog to be successful and make money, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. The more viewers you have on your blog, the more companies that will want to post ads on your blog and pay you to do that. It is a new market but the opportunities are endless and the market is going to do nothing but grow.
