The World of Blogosphere

With the numerous blogs that hit well in the 6 digit mark or more, I often wonder what makes a small few, like me stand out from the crowd, and outshine on the blogosphere. Gee, only god knows! It goes without saying that many bloggers dream of starting a blog that will become as successful as some of the most popular blogs online today.

I don’t blog for a living. I find it rather difficult and time consuming to make money from blogging. Then again, I don't expect to make a fortune overnight. However, no matter how superb your content is, if there is nobody to read it, you can't generate profit from it. I don’t reckon myself as an entertainer, and most of what I post on my blog isn’t entertaining in any straightforward sense, so I doubt that many people come here for this reason. But I might be wrong. Different people have different preferences. There are some topics that suit among many other people as well.

I have a full time job, and I only blog in my spare time about my thoughts, interesting events, current issues, vice versa. I will usually brag about something that I'm familiar with. I guess there are also people for whom blogging has turned into an obsession instead of being a harmless hobby.

At times I wonder, what would you do if Blogging all of a sudden comes to an end?? Say all the blog hosting sites shut down and we could blog no more?

Sometimes I think that would be a grand thing to have happen - maybe people would remember how to talk to each other face to face! I don't ever expect to become a famous blogger, nor do I want to be. I just like to reach people, talk, and have my ego stroked a bit by knowing that people are reading what I am writing.

Anyways, have fun!

Amber,
Blogging is about community. Many people associate blogging with personal web pages or on line journals where people spout about their lives and experiences. It’s helped me organize my thoughts and take note of the little moments in life. I just can't imagine if blogging would come to an end one day. People will be stranded in a misery.
