Ghost bloggers and ghostwriters are authors who are hired to write content for clients. Sounds pretty simple, right? The catch--and reason for the funny name--is that these authors don't receive credit for their work. People can produce and receive ghost-written content for a variety of media, including blog posts, internet content, newspaper articles, songs and even books. People can make a decent career out of ghostwriting and ghost blogging, as there are many professional ghost blogging jobs in the blogosphere. There are also some controversies that have arisen from the practice of ghost blogging and ghostwriting, including how ethical it is.
For the original author, however, ghostwriting and ghost blogging can be a completely legal, legit, lucrative career. Many businesses and business owners simply do not have the time or the skills needed to create a coherent, useful blog.

Their constant stream of criticism probably comes from a need to assert their sense of superiority, which actually indicates feelings of inferiority or insecurity.
