Bloggie Friday is back! To kick off the return series I’m sharing an infographic about why people start blogs, the challenges of blogging, and what concerns bloggers the most.
I’ve been following Ramsay at Blog Tyrant almost since I started blogging, and can recommend Blog Tyrant as a hugely helpful resource on all things blogging. If you want to start a blog or improve your blog pop over to his site.
Ramsay has developed a fantastic infographic, which I’m sharing with permission, below.
I was glad to see that the 50 – 60+ age group are featured strongly 🙂 which strengthens my resolve to keep on blogging. What the graph shows below is that there are more mature bloggers and blog readers than ever before.
A few years ago, one of the challenges of blogging for me was that many people over the age of 50 had no idea what a blog was! Now they do.
You’ll be surprised how many hours bloggers spend on their blogs per week, and how many of them are making any money. From $0 to a million was quite a surprise to me, although the small percentage of people making a lot of money was not surprising.
The challenges of blogging are many – as this infographic shows. Bloggers are concerned about security, readership, how to write a popular blog, web traffic, hosting, themes and plugins, outsourcing, lack of earnings, and the list goes on.
I hope you Enjoy!
Would love to know in the comments if you have a blog and do you consider yourself a pro-blogger (in it to make money) or a just-for -fun-personal-blogger (in it to share your life and views, and make connections)
