I believe little is the knowledge that people know about blogging. People have really misunderstood blogging for money making, seeing people making a huge amount of money by blogging professionally, and thinking that blogging is a good way to make money.
Only to get themselves disappointed because they did not understand what blogging is all about. Blogging is not about making or earning money, though it could be bonus to it, but not primarily the means of making money online. It’s is about being social, having fun, building networks, sharing your thoughts and helping others.
