Yesterday, I called the Wall Street Journal on its shoddy reporting about blogging as a profession.
As fortunate as I am to call myself a 'professional blogger' and as much as I believe blogging has a very bright future, the WSJ's article claiming that there were more people earning a living as bloggers in the United States than there are firefighters, CEOs, computer programmers or bartenders was just plain wrong.
Bloggers. Sometimes they come with negative and descriptive adjectives in front of their names. Sometimes they can move markets with their audience and expertise. For HP's launch of its HDX Dragon notebook last year, bloggers were all good, and still are.
HP's word-of-mouth marketing partner Buzz Corps recently made public the results of its blogger-driven Dragon launch and sales. According to Buzz Corps CEO Chris Aaron, finding influential bloggers in the tech space was easier than trying to follow thousands of tech fans on Twitter or Facebook.
