Recently there seeems to be a surge of great bloggers who are getting paying gigs to blog. For quite some time now I’ve admired some of the regulars at Blogging Baby and wondered if there would ever possibly be a chance that some day I might be able to do something like that. In the last couple of weeks I’ve read about several people getting jobs at ClubMom and even AlphaMom.
As I read about each one, I sit here in disbelief that these people are getting paid to blog. Then I start dreaming and think, what if I could get paid to blog? Quickly, reality sets in and I realize that I am nowhere near the status of these great bloggers who get hundreds of comments on every entry they post. I’m lucky if I even get ten or fifteen visitors a day on my blog. But everyone has to start out somewhere, right?
Today I did something that makes me nervous as heck. I finally sucked up some courage and put in my application to one of those big multi-blog sites. I keep telling myself not to get my hopes up, but I know that if I don’t at least try that I will always wonder, "what if?" I don’t want to someday regret the fact that I sat here and didn’t chase after my dreams.
My fingers are officially crossed…
