blogging goes commercial?

“Blogging, to the horror of some, is trying to go commercial”

Maybe that is the reason why I picked this mode of publishing this journal (hosted on my institute

account). I have a feeling that sooner or later people will try to make money out of this “business of personal publishing”. How much of it is “personal” is another question that needs to be looked into.

As the famous saying in economics goes, “There is no free lunch”, well there is no free blog either. Either you pay through your pocket or you pay through clicks. One way or the other you will end up paying.
