Is sharing like boomerang?

in My Personal Thoughts

When an artist paints, she does not care for money. She does not dream of big house, cars or jewelery. She does it because she likes sharing. Her painting may sell for millions or almost nothing but that is not the point.
When a blogger puts up a post, shares some knowledge, it may not fetch the moolah. There is a boomerang effect however with every sharing.
With sharing, you get known, get a voice, get authority. Getting authority means people not only listen to you but sometimes pay you as well for that. The purpose of sharing however should not be to make money. Money is a byproduct of sharing.

You may spread your knowledge because you have received it in some other form. Even though people are now making money for their knowledge, at some point in time they must have worked hard to learn things.
When you spread your knowledge people use it and then add their value to it. The whole world benefits and it all started because of you.
This boomerang takes time to come to you but it does with much more force than you have thrown it.

Money has always been the result and it always will be. A lot of people do tend to use this as a cause. If this is the case, what happens is that they usually fail. Potential customers or your blog followers will not like it when your ultimate motive is just to gain a profit. Sharing valuable information wholeheartedly is the key.

Excellent stuff buddy. You have said it so well and correct. I too have felt the same but honestly, I have been very lazy with all these…:P
