I don't know whether anyone's counting, really. Might be kind of like counting the stars at this point.
Some very quick research shows 70 million by someone's count in 2006. I wouldn't be surprised by that number at all... or double that number, for that matter.
Mostly these blogs are for fun - vanity publishing in a sense.
But some percentage are for profit. And that's of interest to freelance writers.
Because here's the problem with having a blog for business purposes - you MUST keep it fresh. And it's got to be done well.
Hey, I can tell you one thing after having done like 150+ posts (guessing at that number, but I think it's pretty close) for this blog...
It's a "do"!
I can see why people hire freelance writers to create blog posts.
Blogs are hungry little suckers - you've got to feed them frequently!It's a booming opportunity for freelance writers. I know I've seen more blog post gigs posted than ever lately, and predict it's a growing trend.
Have you noticed this same thing?
Do you have a blog?
Have you written blog posts for clients?
Let's dig in a little and see how we can tap into this vast market.
