When Blogging Becomes A Job

People blog for various reasons: to express themselves, to keep in touch with friends and family, to practice writing, or to (hehe) get some kind of affirmation from strangers. Some may actually blog because, well, that's their job.

In the article Career Journal: Blogging becomes a corporate job, Sarah Needleman writes that:

A small but growing number of businesses are hiring people to write blogs, otherwise known as Web logs, or frequently updated online journals. Companies are looking for candidates who can write in a conversational style about timely topics that would appeal to customers, clients and potential recruits.

Imagine, only a few corporations have set-up corporate blogs, and already there are job offers for bloggers? That confirms what we've been seeing all these years: People don't like to write.

Look inside most organizations, and you'll find few writers. Lots of readers and consumers of "content", but hardly any producers.

For those who want to take up creative writing, you can tell your parents that there is a viable financial future for you. :-)

So go ahead and keep writing, blogging, publishing, broadcasting, producing, and creating. Just don't forget to do some consuming, too. Write a lot, but read even more.
