Bloggers come in many different categories, some blog for a living, some blog for a little living, some blog for technically nothing, and some blog for nothing.
Do we realize that the general public believes that bloggers are in it for the money? I have had several questions through the past year wondering what I make! When I say I make nothing, they ask why there are advertisements on my blog. Sometimes, I don't know what to say since I have only racked up $10.00 for a year and you only get paid in merchandise when you have accumulated $100.00. Well, I calculate this to be ten years until I get paid.
I have been told more than once, we would love you to take pictures of our artwork, home, etc., only to be notified after you have spent a great deal of time, NO, we do not wish to be on a blog!
Blogs are everywhere, but have they really come into mainstream America? I don't think so, they are not in the neighborhoods, they are not down the block yet.
I guess if we exist in our own little blog world there is not a problem, but when we advertise ourselves with our friends or the groups that we belong to we realize that we are not yet understood!
I have learned so much this year about blogging, communicating, photography, computer skills, gardening, plants, plant zones, countries, people and most of all about myself! Thank you blogging friends, I look forward to an even more productive year!
