When I was in high school during the late 90s, educators and other experts told me that I would probably have a job that no one had even thought of back then (forget positions like accountant, pilot, programmer, etc.) since the Internet and computer technology were accelerating at such a brisk pace during the Dot-com Boom.  While a very few people knew the publishing technique that is now known as blogging then, it wasn't until about 2003 or 2004 that blogging gained more exposure.

On Sunday The New York Times had an article by Barbara Whitaker titled "Can Blogs Become a Big Source of Jobs?"  It discusses how there are now thousands of blogging jobs, and while most paid bloggers only earn a few hundred dollars per month, some earn upwards of $50,000 a year — that's a regular full-time job. 

Whitaker touched upon the fact that blogging or understanding the practice is now part of many traditional jobs.  For instance, how many journalists blog now?  They still do what they have traditionally done, but blogging is just a new duty.

However, it is no surprise that blogging is part of my job description since I work for an Internet communications firm.  Perhaps the notion that I would have a job that no one had though of was more or less true.
