How serious do you take your blogging? Are you a personal blog enthusiast writing about family and pet affairs? Or a social butterfly kind of blogger? A shopper blogger? Or maybe you are one of those money bloggers who see the dollar sign in every nook and corner of blogosphere.
Well, it takes all kinds of bloggers to make up the blogging community.
After one or two years of blogging, maintaining one or several sites, most people will reach a point in their blogging life whereby they need to sit back and review their blogging experience.
No doubt they will wonder what the hell they are doing in blogosphere! Are they making something out of it or none at all? Or are they just enjoying themselves in a narcissistic way as a blogger?Like anything in life, having a self-appraisal in regards to spending time blogging is a good thing. Review your blogging experience and see which direction you are heading. Are you at the crossroads of blogging or cruising along nicely on that easy road?
Now know very well that there are a 100 million or more bloggers on this planet. That's a huge figure and still growing. In other words, if you decided to pack up as a blogger, it won't make one dent. You won't be missed. The blogosphere keeps on spinning while you go your way.
Given this perception of an "endless" stream of new Netizens starting their own blogs or websites, you can be sure that there will always be another noob or sucker joining the community of world bloggers everyday.
Most of us would have gone through this phase and learned from our blogging experience but the newbies will keep on coming, eager to grab opportunities and so-called good advice that are being offered because they tend to be easy targets.
I'm not saying all these offers are bad but one can never be sure especially when you are new to the game and still learning. But certainly there are scam artistes, snake-oil merchants, multi-level marketing or pyramid schemes, sham contests and other shady deals.
Sadly, all of them will continue to reap some kind of harvests out of these newbies.
