The State of the Blogosphere

Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere Report for 2008 is out, and things are pretty positive for those of us who make our livings by stringing words together.

According to the report, blogs are pervasive and a part of our daily lives. They’re mainstream. Many businesses have them, and those companies without blogs on their websites are starting to consider adding them.

Like I said: good news. Plenty of those blogs are written by bloggers for hire. Personally, I write for a couple different blogs. It works out well, because most blogs don’t need full-time employees. Instead, a freelancer capable of writing a post or two every day can pick up a long-term reoccuring gig.

Have you considered blogging for pay? Have you found any good opportunities? Have you had any troubles?
