Ok, so my local newspaper's website has a lot of blogs from regular people on a number of topics. I was considering applying to be one (volunteer basis). So I've been writing some sample blog posts, and I got to thinking, which would be better, blogging at their site, or starting a new site for my topic and running ads. The pros to being on the newspaper's site is that it seems more legitimate and would be better on a resume. The pros to running my own site is that I could potentially make money. But, considering anyone can blog, then it wouldn't really be something to put on a resume. Later down the line, if it took off, it would be more prestigious.
