Now, if you are a newbie blogger you don’t want to listen to these #people. You must understand that blogging has gone beyond some personal journal where you simple want to share your thoughts with your friends and family. Blogging is big business these days.
I invite you to read post I did some time ago in reply to some fellow bloggers who had this wrong. It is titled:

to help you do this with ease I offering you 2 useful tips that will help you monetize your blog starting now. The information contained in this article will show you how to treat your blog as a business rather than a hobby!
How to Build a Business and Not Just a Blog!
Make Sure You Have the Right Tools for the Job
The first step in encouraging growth in your blogging empire is to ensure you’ve got the right tools for your “trade.” I know that translates as spending some money. But, as you’re thinking of your blog as a business, you should think of doing this as an investment both in yourself and what you do!
For example, is your computer archaic, slow and unreliable? If so, it’s time to upgrade to a newer model. When I blog, my weapon of choice is an Apple MacBook Pro. But, yours might be a Windows 8 desktop; whatever works best for you.
You should also have a decent Internet connection. When you go online, the last thing you want to do is end up with errors on your blog posts because they fail to load. Fiber Internet connections are fast, affordable and reliable.
And what about your printers? You do have some printers, right? Believe it or not, professional bloggers rely on their printers for many reasons. First, they use them to print out ideas for new featured blog posts. Those ideas get assembled into a “mood board.”
Second, they need them for business purposes. For instance, they’ll need to print out invoices. And because many bloggers use multifunction printers, they’ll use them to scan receipts too.
Stick To a Routine
Regular blog readers expect to find content delivered to them through your site or RSS feed on a particular schedule. If you break that schedule, you’ll end up forcing those loyal readers to go elsewhere.
Just as you would in a business environment, make sure you have a set routine. For instance, be ready to start working from your desk at 9am. Take your lunch break between 12pm and 1pm. Publish new content on your blog before 5pm.
It doesn’t matter what your particular routine and schedule is; what matters is that you stick to it. By following the tips in this article, you’ll soon reap the benefits of running a busy blog site!
There you have it. Do this today and you will be able to take your blog to the level of a business starting now. And who knows, you might just be the next success story of probloggers making millions from their blogs!
