My Reply to Dave (Bux),What Dave said in his post does work, and works well. There is any number of people, experts in their trade passing on tips in their blog posts, on social media etc; who command a good following and make money.The question though is: Do you really have to be an expert in a certain niche to have a successful blog site?I say not necessarily.

The stats are against me hanging around for another 840 months, but if you think how little time we actually have on this place it makes sense not to waste the time you have. Michael.
AI vs Human writing.
I like reading well written articles., and having been in Colombia for the past 3+ years good writing is not hard to find.There is a very nice park not far from the business center of Santa Marta, shady, the seats are located where it is easy to ignore the sounds of passing traffic (and other park users), where you can relax and read with minimal disturbances.It is said Hemmingway, on his visits to the Caribbean, frequented this park to write drafts for a couple of his novels.There is a bust of
