Because they’re the most popular blogs within a particular niche, their communities effectively act as a support system for anyone who’s just now getting acquainted with a particular topic

And about getting paid… unless you understand that blogs don’t make money, but rather the businesses behind them, you’ll be forced to rely on 3 of the worst performing monetization channels available (ads, affiliate marketing, and sponsored content.) And that’s only if you’re lucky enough to be in a niche that enables affiliate marketing, otherwise, you’ll be forced to recommend vaguely relevant books from Amazon.

I figured the best time to start is right now, while my son is napping and the sun is shining. Ah, the beautiful promise of spring and better days ahead. But I digress. This blog has now been created, kind of on a whim but also not. And that is where we find ourselves today.

Years ago yoga teacher Rodney Yee said that he was not in control of what students were learning when teaching a class. He could be teaching the fundamentals of back bending while a random student might be resolving a decades old disillusionment with his mother-in-law. Degree of impact is an interactive phenomenon.

Might a post of mine help you resolve a decades old disagreement with your mother-in-law?

Before I go much further, I must share with you my dilemma. As a student, we were required to create digital portfolios and blogs of our work. At the time, I used the Penn State blog as my platform. This worked out great when I was a student and employee of Penn State, but now that I have moved on I had to move my lovely portfolio as well. This process didn’t go so well and I wound up with fragmented bits and pieces of my work scattered about the internet.
