Blogging: Is it for money?

Many people start blogging when they heard that it could bring in cash. They blog day and night, 24/7/365 (that's it, 24 hour a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year). Finally, after some months have passed, they generate less than, maybe, $5 a month. And then they got bored. And quit. So what's the use?

Inevitably, the bloggers who blog for money, be it to write reviews or publish ads, will find that blogging is nothing more than a tedious work. They will fall short of energy in no time. On the other hand, bloggers who blogs for their blog (get it?) will rarely quit, as they love blogging. I didn't say that you can't get a handsome amount of profit from your blog, in fact there are many bloggers that are wealthy beyond imagination (hope I didn't exagerrate). It's just hard to maintain quality works when we aren't really enjoying it.

As for me, I consider sharing things through my blog is a payment for all the Internet services that I used (emails, Facebook, YouTube, Messenger, etc) but you are welcome to differ in opinion :)

Hey Mr. Blogger Newbies!

I haven't come to your site for a while, and it seems like you changed blogs!

Anyway, my name is Eric Chou and I am from ProProfs.com. We just launched our new product, ProProfs Polls and I wanted to share it with you and see if you would like to try it out. It's pretty much like a PollDaddy or a Quibblo (I think you wrote about that earlier somewhere) but with a stronger analytics feature so you can get more info from your voters. Here's the feature set:

* Big community of wide variety of voters centered around knowledge & opinions
* Embed polls on any blog, website, e-learning system, and social networks
* Integration with: Yahoo Flickr Images, YouTube Video, Google Maps
* Customization controls for color themes & size
* Advanced analytics & filters such as geographical location, duplicate IP & detecting fraud votes
* Review & record each vote with timeline, location & IP details

Here's also a Tour you can check out http://www.proprofs.com/polls/tour/

You can also see the Press Release: http://www.proprofs.com/polls/news/

I'd love it if you could check it out and perhaps share it with your readers!

Actually...to make it easier, I just created a examle poll for you. Since we're at it, I created a poll about Widgets for blogs. Here it is: http://www.proprofs.com/polls/poll/?title=how-many-hours-a-week-do-you-spend-on-social-media

Your account name AND password are your new identity:

ouronlineworld
ouronlineworld

Be sure to change the email address since it's fake.

Alright, I think that's enough from my end. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It would be great if you could share with your readers about it. If not, at least take advantage of the cool features we offer! :D

I hope you have a great week and that you will be successful in every activity you engage in!

With Sincerity,
Eric Chou
