Sooo… about two years ago I started having companies reach out to me. Pretty cool, right? Companies wanted me to review their products, model for their clothing stores, let them redesign my blog in exchange for a review, products or money, etc.
Awesome, although I said no to 99% of them. I don’t want to promote and rave about products/companies that I haven’t even tried and don’t know at all and truthfully I feel like I would be lying just for money.
So why did I say you shouldn’t blog for money?… Well other than the reason I just mentioned above, it takes a-l-o-t of time. Each post I write takes me 6-24 hours from the idea of the post to writing the content to editing it, creating pins for promoting it, etc. So unless you are blessed to become a very, very successful blogger, the money you receive will not be worth your time.
Passion and purpose is essential when doing anything to the best of your ability and creating a blog is no different. No one wants to read something by someone who doesn’t have a purpose behind what they are saying.
With that being said though, if writing is something you enjoy and are passionate about, then go ahed. Create that blog! Write, write, write to your heart’s content.
You’ll definitely find it very rewarding. Receiving the sweetest emails, comments and Dm’s from people who actually enjoy your work is such a satisfying feeling and if it’s truely your passion the amount of likes, views, followers or money you receive will not matter anyway, so it’ll just feel like a bonus reward for your hard work/passion.
If you’re a blogger, what’s your favourite thing about blogging?
