Entrepreneurial Bloggers

Yesterday’s class mentioned blogging as a means of self-promotion. While people start blogging for a variety of reasons, they can transform their online presence into tangible benefits.

Jessica Schroeder created a blog and began photographing her outfits (almost) everyday. She began to solicit sponsors and now works full-time on her blog and related projects. Not only do readers regard her as a fashion resource; she also gives tips on blogging.

I Wrote This For You is a two-person collaboration with stories about “you”. The writer has a personal blog where he discusses digital spaces and South Africa. Participating in the blog project has given him a platform to bring attention to issues.

Multiple blogs have spun off to become books as well. (Some I'm hoping will get there.)

Blogging can be entrepreneurial.
