Blogging is the perfect job for knowledge workers.

Blogging also creates opportunities to get to know other professionals that you can partner with to pursue other business adventures. As the Internet grows up, bloggers are keeping up with the changes and continuously on the lookout for opportunities. Someday, having your own blog may become a requirement when applying for a job.

If you want to be part of the next generation of millionaires, then perhaps you should start a blog.  The millionaire next door just may be a blogger.
