Reasons why bloggers still don't get much respects - sesgist

Why do most people reacts with indifference when you tell them that You are a blogger ?

I want to take this back then when blogging was a new entrepreneurship to this present year though some people are still ignorant about what blogging and running a blog means. Most people takes bloggers to be poor, cruel and unemployed person trying to earn a living by writing some stupid stuff. In 2016 when I starts my first blog site on entertainment niche, I spent most of my time on my phone and laptop researching and creating a post. Some of my friends sees it as a unusual thing and disrespects my profession and I i condemned them the most common question I got was <blockquote>Can you make a decent living blogging and if yes how many cents have you made since ever</blockquote> Although my response was not that good because I haven't monetize my blog then but I tried to make them understand that you can make a living blogging but you need to build up a lot of traffic which might take years. "Blog with passion and not for money and you will make it in blogging" i added.
They slightly mistakes blogging to be nothing else like writing. They said that there is no difference between a writer and a blogger. "We all know that writing is one of the worst paying profession in the whole world" said by them

So after arguing for some time I came to realize that the reason why blogger still don't get much respect are as follows

# Most pro bloggers demonstrate a tremendous amount of stealth wealth
Most bloggers keep their online Income quite. Can you imagine a blogger telling their people that he makes $500 - $1000 monthly when he even earns more than $10,000 per month. Some bloggers spent way more than he tells his community he earns. They are afraid of blacklash.

#Second reason is because people confuse pro bloggers to be classic starving writer:
Some bloggers might not have the same stills as a classically trained writer. A pro blogger should not be compel with a writer. Bloggers employs the services of a writer and pays him/her on monthly bases. Seeing this can a employee be more wealthy than his/her employer?

#Thirdly there is no government or non government organization holding bloggers together

Bloggers will gain more respects over time. In next 10 years to come blogging will probably be respected as one of popular profession in the world. If we look at the way bloggers are been treated back then in 2010 to this year, we will see a lot of difference.
To achieve this, here is things to be done

•• Blogging course must be introduced and be taught in high school and college. When they begins to teach blogging as a course in high school and makes them understand that pro bloggers makes more than bankers, techies, doctors and lawyers. Entrepreneurship is rocking hard these days. It's good in creating a job than looking for a job. Let our children thinks and say, when I grow up i will be a blogger.

•• Highlighting what bloggers makes to the public. I also thinks as soon as people figured out how much pro bloggers make and their lifestyle that go with it, people's negative views towards blogging will change.

Bloggers share this with your friends and audience to help popularise blogging.
