More and more people are exploring this filed to either as a help to grow their existing business or sharing their talent or expertise with world. Now, there are more than 6 million blogs are present all across the web and this number is increasing every day.
But despite gaining much popularity, blogging and bloggers life still have many pre conceived notion among general population. In many developing countries, people still think and have many misconceptions about this creative field, such as “Blogging is just a time pass activity” and “Blogging is just an easy way to earn some extra bucks or get free stuffs”.
Not all people understand or want to understand the amount of hard work bloggers put to grow their blogs.
In true sense, blogging is not just a time pass activity. It is a kind of any other professional work or responsibility that involve continuous creation of useful, informative content for their readers and make a difference in their life by doing this thing religiously.
Personally, I have a mixed experience during my last 5 years of blogging career. One side, there are people who appreciate your passion and hard work for blogging, another side you may receive nasty comments (like wastage of time) that may kill your morale.
