The article which I am going to write now is not a blogging guide. Neither is it a how-to article and not even a tech news. Motivational post ? No, it is not even that though there is a possibility that some of you would get motivated with this article.
What I intend by writing this article is to make all the bloggers out there proud of what they actually doing , i.e Blogging.”Do not waste so much time on blogging , concentrate on your studies. You aren’t going to do this for whole life”
“Do not waste so much time on blogging , concentrate on your studies. You aren’t going to do this for whole life”
Sounds familiar ? You would have heard this line a lot of times from your parents , I suppose. Being a blogger myself , this line is not something new. I get to hear this almost daily. But since , I know blogging is a great profession and the best profession for me , I do not care for those comments anymore.
NOTE : The reasons are not confined to blogging only but Internet Marketing also comes under the same head.
1) You’re your own boss ^_^
First and foremost , you are not working for anyone. Even if you are an affiliate marketer or a digital marketer , you are working with them , not for them.
If you are a blogger , you have your own set of blogs and your own work. There is no one who will tell you what to do and what not to do. There is no one who will scold you if you do something wrong. You can start working anytime , you can stop anytime.
Whole of your business is run by you and is managed by you.
2) Scale it up anytime
This is the best thing I like about Blogging or making money online. You do not have any fixed limited income as in jobs. You know the process to make money and you can scale up your income by repeating things.
For example : If you are working for an MNC or a government job , you are only going to receive a fixed amount of money every month. But the case is pretty much different when it comes to blogging , you do not have a fixed income. You earned an amount this month , you can double it the next month provided that you put the double efforts.
3) Creativity and innovation
If someone has hired you for to help them make money for them , you are not going show your innovation of creativity for them , that for sure and why should you ? You are doing what you are being paid for. You are supposed to build a machine and you do it. Where is the need to make the machine better ?
But that is not the case in blogging. At each and every point of time , you are thinking and working to make your blog better.
4) Work anytime
If you are a blogger or a marketer , you need not have a fixed time for work. If you feel that working at night is more productive for you , do that. Sleep at daytime and work at night. There is no one who is going to stop you. You are the one who is going to decide your work schedule.
You can take as many breaks as you want during your work provided that they do not affect your business.
5) The place is always yours
You have the choice of the place of your work. If you are working at some firm , you will have to go to your office and the office may not be your favourite place. But if you are a blogger , your work is not place-oriented and you can choose to work anywhere you wish to.
You can open an office just near your home and can save a lot of time in commuting. In case you do not even want an office , you simply can work from your home.
6) No degree required, ever
Unlike 90% of the professions prevalent among the youth , you do not need any degree to start a blog. Neither do you need to do any course that will teach you blogging. Blogging is a skill that is developed by self over the time.
The only degree you need is your skill. If you have the skills to craft perfect blog posts , build quality links , you are going to rock in the blogosphere.
7) Limitless learning
If you are living a normal 9-5 job life , just take a moment and think , when did you last learn something new ? You won’t even remember that.
But if you are a blogger , then you are learning each day. You will learn something or the other at each point of your blog.
Each post , each link , each event , each blog will teach you something new and that is the real beauty of blogging.
Your Network is your net worth
During the course of your blogging journey , you will meet a lot of people , both online and offline. Let’s consider online networking first.
You will make new online friends when :-
- You ask them for a guest post.
- You exchange a link.
- You collaborate with them.
- You meet them in a facebook group maybe.
and many more ways in which you can increase your blogging friend circle.
You can also increase your offline network when you meet new people in various offline meetups or conferences.
9) Fame and Respect
Blogging can earn you so much fame and respect which you can not even dream of by working on some other professions like simple jobs.
Some people may not agree to it but a blogger can be more famous that a district collector. The main difference in their fame is their audience. A district collector may be famous in that particular district but if a blogger is successful , he will be famous in the entire blogosphere of his respective country even in other foreign countries.
10) Self dependent
You know what one does when he does not have the money to buy a domain name or hosting for his blog ? Asking to parents ?
Asking to parents ?
No !! In most of the cases , he will do freelancing and gather the money. You learn to be self-dependent from the very first day of your blogging journey.
Apart from that , you have your own sources of making money and you aren’t dependent on anyone for your income.
11) Blogging as a profession is secure
Ever did you parents say to you that the blogging profession is not a secure career choice ?
Now I’ll tell you why it is and even it is more secure than your normal job because you aren’t dependent on anyone. No one can throw you out of job if you do not work according to him.
In blogging, there is not just one income source. There are a lot of ways to earn money such as Adsense , Affiliates , CPA offers , Youtube , Sponsered reviews etc etc.
Moreover , you do not have just one website on which you are dependent. Once you start proper blogging , you build an empire of websites for yourselves. They are put on auto-pilot mode and they continuously make money for you.
Moreover , within a short span of time , you can make so much money that you may not even need to work after that. That is the beauty of blogging.
After all this , I can say one thing for sure :-
blogging as a profession is secure
Are you a blogger ? Feel proud to share this article. Show this to everyone who says that blogging is not a secure profession or it is not a good profession. According to me , it is the best profession.
