What Would You Do If You Could Do Anything

Hello Bloggers,

I come to you tonight with a DEEP question. It might be to deep of thinking, if you have had a long stressful day so if that is the case skip this blog post and come back tomorrow I promise you it will be light and fluffy!!!

So the question is:
"What Would You Do If You Could Do Anything"
This question always come to mind when I am reading blogs that people have created as their jobs/careers.

To me it is a pretty astonishing task that people have created outlets for themselves to attain advertisers, and to speak their mind, to show their passion, to share their wisdom. A year ago I had no idea that blogging was or could be a business/career. I started my blog so that my family could be kept up to date on what was going on in my life. Then about six months ago the blogging doors opened up to me and I realized that their is a HUGE world out there in BLOGLAND. You want to know about wedding planning, cooking, parenting, writing, finances, beauty, sports, celebrities, you name it is out there.I started seeing more and more blogs that had advertisers and that had shops where you could order merchandise/products.Recently I started following a blog where a married couple do DIY home improvements to their home and stay home with the child? Can you believe it. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think most people start a blog on day 1 and begin earning a sufficient income to quit their job on day 2. Blogging is hard work. To become one of those up and coming blogs you have to have advertisers, you must have give-aways, you must have a high number of daily visits and followers. Besides blogging many of these sites also have facebook pages, and twitter accounts.  When you really think about blogging, it is transforming our workforce. Everyday 688 people start a blog? Do you know how people start a registered business- 297.

So I pose a couple of questions to you my fellow bloggers:
"What are some of your favorite blogs that you follow?"
"What makes you a follower of a blog?"
" If you could blog about anything, what would it be?"

For some time now I have been wanting to start an additional blog that is all about entertaining and cooking. Months and months ago I secured the name to ensure that I could use it and to my dismay I have put off getting it started for a number of reasons. But guess what I am going to give it another shot. I am going to work diligently on it in the next month and hopefully you will visit both this blog and the NEW ONE.

I would love to hear all your thoughts and comments. Have a great day

Erin- I'm loving this one! I faithfully follow blogs that host a variety of different topics about lifestyles, hobbies, DIY projects, and family life. To think that more people start blogging on a regular basis than a business blows my mind-clearly the world is evolving everyday! I am slowly starting to branch out my "regular reads" with blogs I find featured on my favorite bloggers' sites. Thanks for the ones you've recommended!
