As described in Wikipedia, a blog (an abridgment of the term web log) is a website, usually maintained by an individual, with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog. It can be a collection of photos, videos, or just displaying one's sense of humor. Anyone can technically talk about something or someone in his or her own blog.
And the catch, some professional bloggers are now earning as much as $300 to $6,000 a month! Wow!! That is a whopping Php 258,000 per month in todays exchange rate. Of course this is not easy. To get some tips, here is a video in uploaded by joshko2001 where blogging was discussed in Mel&Joey.
According to one blog entitled "Professional Blogging: The Next Job Opportunity Boom" by Ivo -
We have all been exposed to the various peaks of job opportunities which started with Information Technology, call center agents and then lately that of nursing and caregivers. The different trends towards emphasizing on the high demand for such jobs has become a yardstick in measuring which among the many job opportunities would be in the limelight.
This early, everything points towards blogging to be the next boom with regards to providing new job opportunities. The notion that this line of work is limited to people with a journalism degree is totally false. With the proper use of grammatical skills, anyone can blog about anything and for anyone if he or she would simply do the steps necessary to be good at it.
There has been a lot of rumors that people have been making money through blogging. Depending on their purpose, article writing and blogging with emphasis on quality content has truly been rising. It would not be surprising if by this year, a lot of people will be blogging and using this as their main source of livelihood.
So gear up guys. Collect those stories, ideas, concepts - technically anything under the sun that you have there - and start your own blog!
