Making a living as a blogger has to be one of the sweetest gigs out there. As a blogger, you‘ll be able to earn passive income which means that your money will flow in even as you‘re sleeping, traveling, or relaxing with friends.
You‘re no long trading time for income and this is the point you need to get to if you want to be free and financially independent (even being self-employed with clients is still pretty much like having a job). What‘s more, blogging means you get to earn that money by writing on a topic that you find fascinating and you even get to become something of a minor celebrity in your chosen niche.
You can earn a lot of money here too–if a blog takes off and becomes successful then in theory you can earn thousands a day. It‘s incredibly scalable and there‘s no ̳upper limit‘ for what you can achieve. What‘s the downside? It‘s not easy. This is all about working hard and smart now so that you can reap the benefits later.
Too many people approach blogging in the wrong way, thinking that they can just write a few posts on a semi-regular basis and that that will be enough to ensure their success. In reality, you need to approach blogging as a full-time job if you ever want it to be your main source of income. In other words, if you want this to be your full-time job… you better treat it like one.
That means working hard and to begin with you want to be uploading as much content as possible, having invested a decent amount of time and/or money in creating a beautiful design to begin with. At the same time though, it also means being smart about how you‘re going to build your blog and it means using growth hacks so that you get much more benefit out of the work you‘re putting in.
