  1. So which stage are you now? ๐Ÿ˜€
    My end goal is the stage 8, I can now make a little bucks from blogging but I learn many things from blogging. It’s not only about writing, comment or social networking…, it is the combination of many things and it takes me plenty of time to learn. And it’s amazingly that I can also use some knowledge here in my real life that no school teaches me ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Nice question Phaoloo! I see myself as a learner, 8th stage is far far away from me, though I quit my job for professional blogging. I accept that learning never ends in life. Yes, blogging changes my life too, I got to know more and more things now. Few months back I was working on a telecom company in which I was learning nothing. Blogging provides a new direction to my life. Daily I learn new things by visiting some incredible blogs.

  2. i think i am at stage 5…still learning the SERIOUS aspects of blogging

  4. I’m actually at 2 and 7. I think quite possibly I’ll always be on 2 because I don’t think I’ll ever get to the point where I feel there isn’t something else to learn. Every time I start reading posts, I find something else that I might implement into my blog and writing that might be beneficial for me.
    As far as #8, I am so ready to quit my job and be a professional blogger. I know if I had the time, I could progress much quickly. Unfortunately, I’m not even close to the point where I can afford to leave my present position. I have the confidence that someday I will be able to, but at this point in time, putting food on the table is a bit of a priority. I will keep working at night and into the morning hours with my laptop perched on my lap until I can finally attain the freedom to quit. I posted a survey on http://www.wapatu.com hoping that the results would give the non-professional bloggers a boost of encouragement. Sometimes, a little re-enforcement is all we need. Good luck to all.

I am now in the process of switching my wordpress blog over to a webhost. Just got my domain name. wishing you tons of success on your journey. ๐Ÿ™‚
