Blogging is another stream of income for people that carry an entrepreneur DNA. Decades before the term “startupers” emerge, a tribe of digital bees was actively writing and publishing their words in blogs. Back in the days, we called them: weblogs.
In a way, we can say that the journalists and writers, back in the early 1990s, showed us how to use blogs to make unknown voices be heard. Today many bloggers earn their living through this activity. So from the days (1991-1994) when blogging was just a hobby, today it’s a business of billions.
From January 1994 when the very first blog was created up to today’s microblogging platforms, blogging is a major part of the internet’s growth and digital marketing evolution.
The Science and Art of Blogging
We must admit that today’s blogs and bloggers are quite different from the blogs of yesteryears. But no matter how conditions may have changed, blogs & bloggers are the running blood inside The Internet.
More and more people are seeking ways to create money coming blogs. Unfortunately, people who look for easy money forget the basics of blogging. For example, they lack essential skills in writing a good blog post. See here how you can create a blog post that brings great traffic to your blog.
Every day millions of blog posts are being published making it more difficult to separate your brand from the crowd. Keyword-based content has transformed into a science of communication and psychology field. Being a creative wordsmith isn’t enough if you want to produce leads and increase your income.
