Many design blogs start off as a hobby. Designers like to share what they have learned and seek out criticism from others. Blogs are a natural way of doing this. As blogs mature however many of us have found that they have had to transition from hobbyist to businessman. In the last year or so Colorburned has gone through a number of transitions and I have learned a lot about blogging; what works and what doesn’t. In this article I’ve decided to share a little about what I’ve learned about running a design blog like a business. It’s my hope that you guys will learn a little from my experience and hopefully not duplicate some of my mistakes.
