I am a teacher and I thought blogging would be a great summer job, but school's not out and I have discovered how time-consuming it can be! Right now I feel rushed and don't have the time to really enjoy all of the great blogs out there. My main objective right now is to build a following and get some advertisers so this summer I can really focus on adding rich and relevant content to my blog. http://www.frugalteacher.com
Personally I blog because I want to give people an opportunity to feel like they are in a real person's space. Often times people treat their blogs like a shoe store or a car lot. Everything is "Sell, Sell, Sell". Not only is this annoying, but it runs potential customers away.
I take the approach of inviting folks into my home. Let's chat, sip on tea and catch up. Then maybe if you'd like, you can come to a gathering with my other friends and we can network.
So I do a combo move...I think it's a better fit.
For me it's still a hybrid.
That will hopefully overtime develop into more of a job.
