Friend was asking me, I want to quit my job and start doing what I really love to do, and get paid as well.
The obvious answer, start blogging!
The reality is, you don’t really make enough money in blogging, it is not as easy as it seems, like any other paying job, it takes hard work to make enough money.
But I still told my friend to start blogging, no not because I believe it is easy to do, and you will make easy money stay home, I coined blogging as a option for one reason, you will eventually find what you really love to do.
Let me explain, the success of the blog is purely based on the content, and then how much you and your blog site is connected with the similar mind.
You write a good and useful content, you need to do research on the topic, that means you learn, and then document what have you learnt, to do this consistently you need to find the subject that really matters to you, more you learn more authoritative you are in your own subject.
More authoritative in your subject, you will attract people with similar interests.
As you become subject matter expert, there are people looking to use your knowledge and willing to pay for it, these people come in touch with you through the contacts you have established, this is a simple concept, say if I am good at plumbing, some of my friend is going to refer their friends to me or to my contents when they need plumbing help.
Now I am doing what I really love, I know better about the subject, I have connection would turn to me for help, since I am good at it, I can start charging for the help I may extend.
Blogging is not the solution itself, it is just a medium, help you find what you really love and project yourself as the expert in the topic.
Key to blogging success is:
2. Consistent content
3. Connect with right people
