Let's be honest. Blogging is an activity. Like every activity in the world, not everybody can do it. And like every activity in the world, not everybody, who can do it, can do it equally as well. There are billions of people in the world, and everybody is different.
Some people build things. I don't do that. Some people race cars - or motorcycles. A nice cop, that I met once, asked me to not do that. I've tried scuba diving - and I'm not good at that, either. So, I found other things to do.
Some people want to publish a blog and make money - and this is just not what everybody can do, equally as well. You have to recognise your limitations - not pay other people to write your blog for you, or pay other people to read your blog, and click on the ads. That is called cheating, by the people who pay for the ads - and it's wrong.
Linking your blog to other blogs and websites, that have nothing better to do than link back to your blog, generates lots of traffic - but doesn't give your readers any benefit. This, too, is wrong.
Publishing a blog, and getting readers, takes hard work and imagination.
Maybe, this is the fault of the people who developed Blogger, and similar Internet activities. They want everybody to believe that everybody can publish a blog, and make money from their blog. That's their job, and they did it. Maybe, they did it, too well.
Sorry. Blogging just is not for everybody. Making money from a blog may be for less folks, still.
