Dr. Woody Asks: Do You Plan to Make a Living Blogging?

August 16, 2011

DRWOODYchairlogo1 Dr. Woody Poll Results: Do you anticipate needing to move home after college?

Dr. Woody Poll Results

There were 379 responses to last week’s Dr. Woody question and the overwhelming majority of you said “No!”

YES

14% (53)

NO

86% (326)

Well, since only 1/5 of you responded to even having a blog (the previous week’s question), it’s no surprise that the vast majority of you don’t plan to make money that way… at least not directly.

Remember, professional blogging, in a similar way to social media, is more of a vehicle for promotion than an actual way of generating revenue in-and-of-itself. Many media organizations like Fast Company, Psychology Today, and Fox Business, to name a few, use “free” bloggers who are looking to reach out to their audiences to promote themselves as experts or advertise whatever services they have to offer.
