As a relatively new writer,blogger or journalist, not sure which ones apply at this point. I create original material (no Fiction or commenting on other people's work) at least at this point the commenting is iffy. I chose the Creative Commons type 3 unported with no commercial use! I thought that I would try to open a conversation that would help me to understand the ins and outs of copywrite and liciencing. What are your ideas on this subject?

Commercial use is really hard to track. Suppose someone takes your content and puts in on his website which is also for-free. He can even keep the license. Suppose his website is financed via advertisement (most sites are), he would still make money off your work.
On the web, content is king. If you plan to make money out of this, keep the copyright to yourself. If you're only doing it for fame and wish as many people to learn about you as soon as possible, then us CC.
