Did you know that people are making six-figure incomes by blogging? ….BLOGGING?
The moral statement is that people, through their own resourcefulness and a developing writing style, are producing an information product, a blog, that people want to read. Through the magic of Google Ads and other advertising facilities, they are drawing income, by virtue of the fact that people want to read what they have to write. They have made themselves freelance writers, but without publishers, editors, printing facilities, etc.
The moral statement is that, while we continue to do a good job at teaching our students how to consume content (read), we must also be teaching them how to produce valuable information products (write, draw, compose, make movies, etc.). It is a viable and accessible revenue opportunity for all of us.
