expert at blogging

I am hoping you can all help me out with this in the comment section because I really have no answer to this and would love to hear your thoughts. I have been thinking about this all night and it is based on this “snarky” comment I received on my last post which was about making money blogging . Here is the comment:

Dan, I’m pretty sure this is going to sound snarky, but I sincerely don’t mean it to sound that way. Trust me!

If you’re going to tell me the “most important tip” I need to making money with my blog, then I assume you’re making a boatload of money blogging. Or quoting someone who does. Otherwise, how are you qualified to make the statement?

I’ve read a few of our articles before, but am not terribly familiar with your blog. So, are you an expert at making money blogging?

Here was my response:

You’re right that does sound snarky. If you read my post carefully, you will see that I stated that I would be making a lot more money if I had more time. I stopped by your blog and I am wondering how you are qualified to give blogging tips? You get my point?
You do not have to be the richest or most successful blogger to help other bloggers reach their full potential. Oh and by the way, I do very well making money online which includes blogging. You would be well served to keep reading my blog as I am sure you could learn a thing or two.

So I stopped by her blog and all I found was a bunch of posts about ProBlogger’s 31 Day Better Blog Challenge.  The ironic part is that she is trying to sell people on the idea of buying a blog package from her.  I don’t want this to sound snarky but, why should a buy a blog package from you, are you some kind of expert or something?

I guess there are only three bloggers out there that seem to think that only Darren, ShoeMoney or John Chow could blog about making money blogging.

I know I am ranting but if you read my last post you will see that I never even came close to claiming to be an expert and the point of the post was to reflect on the fact that if I was able to commit more time, I would be more successful.  I do not think anyone would argue with that point.

How much money does someone need to make in order to blog about blogging or making money?

Allison Moore Smith, I would love to hear your thoughts on this?
