Blogs: The diary for the new millennium. Essentially, these are sites that display written thoughts and opinions. They hit on an endless range of topics. At first, companies were worried by the “common man e-voice" trying to destroy big business with their product tales of woe. However, companies have learned to play nice with these Internet individuals who stand on their soap boxes.
Now these opinions can actually net people cash. If your blog has a strong readership, relevant companies might try and advertise on your blog site. You'll need to prove that you have a following but there are many kinds of tracking software on the market that can do this for you. Not only can they tell how many people clicked on your site, but what blog entries were the most popular.
