Hi Ti, I seem to remember this show in particular. I believe you can find most of this particular episode (or episodes?) on YouTube. The fallout from this particular show and what appears to be the monumentally bad service of this restaurant spilled over into social media as well."
Sad but true about the short life of many blogs. I can unfortunately say that from experience. And at least one of your 10 points sinks most bloggers. Just because the platform makes it easy for everyone to publish, doesn't mean everybody will."
I like this post a lot because I think blog commenting is probably something no one does enough of anymore. It's what made the Web social before there was a Facebook or Twitter and, you know what? Bloggers appreciate comments and depending on the size of the blog's community may just followup with a comment (or at least a visit) to your site. Connections between bloggers on this level can lead to links that help to pool communities and build thriving networks of bloggers and blog readers outside the big social sites. The only caution I would add here? I would not add your URL to a comment if there is no opportunity to leave a link back. This might have been OK at one time and there may be isolated situations where it's acceptable, but to a lot of people, it looks like spam, something you want to stay as far away from as possible."
There are also plenty of benefits that come from blogging beyond just ads and affiliate links. These are earnings made directly off of traffic, but don't forget, you can build or grow another kind of business with your blog, maybe a service or product you can offer. You can network and and partner with others you might not have found without your blog. You can identify a niche and a means to build a business for that niche all from blogging. Don't make it all about click through earnings. It's only one possible benefit of blogging."
