This is an interesting question for many. What’s the definition of a career? Career: a field for or pursuit of consecutive progressive achievement especially in public, professional, or business life. In other words, you can pursue any achievement, whether it be in your personal life or your business life.

Not only can blogging become a career that can make you money, it’s a great revenue for creative people to be successful. In my opinion, it’s the dream career, but you see, I’m writing this blog right now in hopes of making this my career one day. So, my answer would be yes, I believe you can make a career out of any passion you seek to achieve. This world is revolved around money, and let’s be honest, it’s kind of hard not be, when money is necessary to pay the bills, and makes our home life more enjoyable. Is it possible to make money while blogging? Of course, it’s possible. The possibilities are endless, but you must believe in yourself.

With all the many social media platforms in the world, there are so many ways to make money, and blogging has become wildly popular amongst business and marketing gurus. There are countless topics to talk about, and who are we kidding? Most people like to talk about topics they enjoy right? So how might one turn this fabulous hobby into a career? Here are a few steps to consider.

1. EDUCATE YOURSELF

As with any career, we must educate ourselves on ever aspect of the job. Knowledge is power they say. Everyone starts at the bottom, and with every answer at our fingertips, we have all the resources to educate ourselves on every subject. We must start somewhere. Take for example, Tai Lopez, who was voted the Number 1 Social Media influencer by Entrepreneur Magazine. Tai began his career by reading books. Wait! Books? Is that still a thing? While you might not realize it, you’re reading every day. This brings us to the next step.

2. READ BOOKS

This can bring many beneficial elements to writing a blog because there are so many different styles in writing. There are so many personalities in the blogging world, and it’s important to find yours. Find your flare, find your voice. If a book inspires you to write, make notes of several topics that interest you. A woman named Marelisa Fábrega , owner of “Daring to Live Life Fully”, expresses how important it is to read a book in her article titled, “13 Ways Reading Will Improve Your Life”. She claims reading can reduce stress, gain knowledge, expand your vocabulary, help you become a better writer, discover yourself, learn about different cultures, and stimulate your mind. These are only some of the benefits, the list goes on. So, what are you waiting for?

3. BEGIN YOUR CAREER

Most importantly, believe in yourself as you begin your career. Seek out different revenues and apply for different companies who need blog writers. Seek out professional blog writers, listen to podcasts, and take the blogging world head on. Practice makes perfect, however, perfect is in the eyes of the beholder. It’s all a learning process, and we must make mistakes in order to learn from them. Don’t look at mistakes as a failure, look at mistakes as a stepping stone to further your blogging career.

We believe in you and we encourage you to believe in your abilities. Share your stories with us, better yet, share your blogs with us. We encourage you to make your dreams a reality.
