Like most bloggers with a reasonable amount of readership I get some interesting comments. Most of my most … um … colourful come after a guest post or mention on anothers blog. One theme that seems to come up a lot is that I should “get a life” and related but subtly different, people earning money blogging is somehow lazy (“get a real job”) or even unethical (the “all blogs are spam” argument).
I don’t see how. The arguments are not well explained. Is the implication that if you don’t lift heavy weights then it is not real work? Do people feel writing and getting rewarded for it is ripping people off in some way?
What do you think? Have you come across these opinions yourself?
