Expenses of a blog network

Many times the blog network owner does a lot of work, which will be otherwise have to be outsourced (and can be expensive)
Some of these overlooked expenses are:
1.Domain selection based on market demand.
2. webhosting selection
3. Webhosting optimization
4. Transfer of websites between different webhosts
5. Dealing with DDOS attacks
6. Answering hosting support tickets and restoring hacked websites
7. Selecting ad networks for monetization
8. Checking ad network performance
9. Finding direct customers
10. Marketing, answering queries from direct customers
11.Order fulfillment
12.Selection of vendors,Assigning work to vendors
13. Check work quality, making payments to vendors
14. Script selection
15. Script installation, maintenance and troubleshooting
16. Keeeping accounts, tracking sales and expenses
17. Computer and other hardware, software selection
18. Computer and other hardware maintenance, troubleshooting
19. Doing market research to find out the latest trends
20. Admin tasks like bill payment, maintenance, repairs, arranging travel plans , tickets, cabs
In any organisations, the tasks of an employee are well defined and few employees will go out of the way to do the work assigned to others as he/she gets a fixed monthly salary. When they attempt to take over an online business (just because the owner works from home) by harassing incessantly and stealing her laptop, do they think they will match the above cost structure?
