Aside from earning money, I blog because I am a very famous and in-demand icon in my place and my fans love reading everything about me.

Blogging is part of my job. But I think if ever I will change my career, I'll still do it because it's already part of my special interest which I truly enjoy. And what's more? It's also my good way of earning extra income through adsense.

I started blogging to keep in contact with people I don't see anymore who live in different counties. And then I found I could make a bit of money writing, and writing about topics that I liked. Most of my stuff is local to Ireland and I get a little buzz sometimes outranking business sites that I write about, using their keywords. I have only a few regular readers and still find it strange that people do come to read my stuff.

After about six months of blogging I was knocked off balance for a while when I meet a group of people one night with a friend of mine. he introduced me as the guy "who writes that blog I told you about" - for a while my feeling of writing into the ether was gone and I became very self-conscious about what I wrote about. That has passed thankfully, as the writing became a bit wooden.

I'm a hopelessly addicted blogoholic

I have more than a dozen blogs of my own and do ghostblogging for clients as well. It's a great way to establish yourself as a subject matter expert which can make you money through affiliate marketing, there's Adsense and link income and I also get freelance writing jobs as a result of some of my blogging effots. It's amazingly powerful for SEO! Plus I think it's fun. I have made some great online friends in the blogosphere.

I blog because im a very good writer and I have a lot of knowledge of things that I would love for people to know, because it took me a long time to finally find out that you can earn money on the internet.

My blog is a portal to my forum. It acts as a gateway collecting keywords, google results pages and traffic. Its also the 5th highest source of traffic to my forum, referring several thousand people every month.

It also provides me with an outlet for my post besides on my forum. When I make a post on my forum, it might get buried with the other thousands of post. But a post on my blog is more visible to people and to search engines.
