I think it all just boils down to the fact that blogs are, by their very nature, very fluid and fixllbee entities. Because blogging is open to all, blogs and the bloggers who write them will always be in a constant state of flux. In other words, being a blogger means living with a continually changing environment. We all know lots of people who are very resistant to change, so these types of arguments, like this one about professional vs. amateur bloggers, will always be around. Take a look at : would you call her a personal blogger or a professional? She writes about her personal life, but she makes a full-time living with the ads she sells on her blog, and even appeared on Oprah. Given the nature of blogs and blogging, these kinds of questions simply have no right answer. Your blog is simply whatever you want to make of it that is the essence of what makes a blog a blog.
