I am an educational writer with several publications to my credit. I have seen a lot of ads for bloggers on your site. I admit it, I am a newbie. I don’t get the whole blog thing. Why would someone want to pay you for writing your opinions? Where do you suggest I get started to learn about blogs?

I’m not always sure I “get the whole blog thing” either. Before I send you off to other sources, let me say this:
I more or less divide blogs into three categories:
- True weblogs – that is, postings by individuals who simply want to share their lives or part of it on the web and have found blogs an effective and simple way to do that.
- Entrepreneurial blogs like mine that are commercial ventures but by people who really don’t want to work in a corporate setting. Blogging then becomes part or, more rarely, all of a self-employment scheme.
- Marketing blogs which are blogs owned by organizations who want to use a blogging format to promote their product.
