Blogging is a Hobby

I'm reading a book about blogging right now. Granted, it's a few years old, but it's still really informative.

It stated that 99% of all blogs don't generate any substantial money and they are mainly a hobby. If that's true, I may as well give up my short-lived dream of striking it rich as a celebrity mommy blogger. HA! Guess I will have to seek gainful employment eventually after all. Bummer!

So glad I'm not one of those totally entrenched bloggers spending all their waking moments in tireless pursuit of traffic and readers. I really do just do it for a hobby and for a form of creative self-expression. And it's good experience for when I DO return to work in the MarComm industry. Must stay abreast of all the latest communication tools and trends.

I think I get maybe 5 visits to my blog a day and I have a high bounce rate - meaning they found me purely by accident and didn't see anything that interested them here. LOL. Which is fine... no hurt feelings... REALLY! *sniff sniff*

Anyway, yes, I am fine-tuning my little hobby to try to be more interesting and funny just for the hell of it. It also trains me not to censor myself so much and become more bold in my creativity. I also like to write about people and how they annoy me without them finding out about it.

Blogging is a hobby - c'est la vie!
