Another Two Cents On Blogging Money

There’s been an interesting conversation going on during the past week about the question of blogging for money. I don’t think that anyone’s said it better than David Lyttle:

”Blogging gives us an opportunity to make jokes, to make pertinent statements of fact, to expose weaknesses, to inform, to say thanks, to make valid points, to tell a story, to aggregate information, to share a verse of poetry, to put forth ideas and certainly to voice opinions but to make money?..............I don't think so.”

I’ll second David on that. He didn’t mention another use of blogging—as a marketing tool for one’s own enterprise—a form of blogging that makes good sense, IMO--but that ain’t the same as doing it for direct payment
