Bloggers usually earn something via their blogs. It can be ad dollars, brand recognition, spinoff services, or something else. Maybe you blog because it is fun and it feels good, I don’t know. The important thing is that you do it, and that it is important to you, one way or another.
When your blog is inaccessible to the world because your host goes down, you’re likely to feel a bit stressed out. Pissed off. Frustrated. Maybe you’ll cry. That’s OK, we understand, this is serious business.
