Blogging for fun, profit or …?

Amitai Givertz is lamenting today about his lack of (??) success and how on earth his blog can get noticed out of the 50 million blogs now out there. The Recruiting Animal suggests quite rightly that while the blogosphere is very large, the audience for recruiting blogs is quite small.

The end result seems to be that Amitia decided to blog for himself, always a good move. (Amitia if you want to blog for profit you must subscribe to ProBlogger.)
There are lots of types of blogs and lots of reasons. There are 3 main types, link based, expert commentary and breaking news, of course most blogs are a mashup of all 3.

However there are more reasons than I can list as to why people blog, but the point being you must enjoy what you do and why you do it.
