    I have never been much of a writer. I think I hate writing.

    Would that mean that I should stay away from blogging?

    Yes, you should either scrape content or use feeds. Or you can pay someone else to write the content for you.

    Blogging need a periodic posts (daily is the best), from rewriting, from feeds, from your neighbors .... the important thing is : Unique content (the king)
    If you can pay for blogging content, it's an other topic (?)
    If not, try other ideas for making money, like a landing page for each offer from CPA networks ... and work more on promoting offers via PPC, social networks, SEO ......
    If not, you are a newbie, and you need to learn yourself how to like writing and blogging and working hard to get a good ca$h from internet marketing.

    Yes. Stay away from what you don't enjoy. If you don't enjoy internet marketing, stay away from it. Make money doing something you enjoy.

    I have a blog and it is doing pretty well. I enjoy blogging too.

    Before, I'd make a few bucks on associatedcontent. It was boring, hard work for minimum wage.

    do what you love

    Blogging is just a platform.

    You can make of it what you want...

    Put up lot of vids, a salesletter, reviews, links to useful stuff, whatever.

    The advantage of blogging is that (with CPanel/Fantastico) it's 2 or 3 clicks to have your site online and the search engine bots love them.

    Don't do what you don't like. If you still want to make blog to monetize and hate creating content by your own, leech rss feed get articles and rewrite them.
    Or you can pay someone to write your articles. I won't recommend paying someone if you're new in the game, because at the first time cost > profit and you don't know whether it will earn you money. Better stick to leeching articles and that's free :p

    I started off rewriting articles and posting them to my website. Took me about 30 minutes just to rewrite 250 words. I really hated it.

    Then I rewrote articles and submitted them to AC. Took me an hour just to rewrite 1 article and submit it. I hated that even more.

    So I guess that writing blogs are just no good for me.

    What is the goal of your blog? Is it to presell and direct visitors to your "money site"?

    I hate to write too, but I have 6 autoblogs, most ranking high in their respected keyword searches and I rarely touch them anymore, let alone write posts for them.
