Honestly, I liked the read @James. Chitraparna was straightforward. “Blogging gives money’ is what every new blogger thinks. Every other person joins this field after learning that all you have to create a blog and add some content and earn money.” Well, who hasn’t?. It just came off negatively since she was biased–using words “doesn’t”, “cruel”, “stagnancy”, “troubles”, and “no”.
I think it’s a bit late to comment on this post, but I kinda agree with the writer – yes, it does sounds a bit pessimistic, but I like when he said that blogging is more than just monetizing it, or for the sake of PR – I think the writer just wants to vent and explain the deeper meaning and essence of blogging.
In some ways, she does make valid points about blogging. I mean if in every content, your only concern is to generate money, as a newbie, this might not bode well for you. Blogging isn’t a get rick quick scheme. I do, however, find no fault in people who want to use their blog for profit. Some novelists, etc. have come from just blogging about their stories.
Also, she talked about finding a niche that is super unique, or at least a few people have delved into. While this might help make you stand out, there’s a variety of ways to write about the same topic. And writing style taste vary among people. People will eventually find your style to be apt to their taste.
