Okay, no I’m not, but wouldn’t that have been random if I was? As I do on most Fridays, I would like to pose a question. Would you quit your job right now for equal pay as a full time blogger?
My answer…. Hell to the No. At first thought, the deal seams pretty enticing. Full time blogging would allow me to work from home, flexibility in schedule, and be actively engaged in something I enjoy. On second thought, though, I realized I already have all of those sweet perks with my current job.
Ya see, I would have to give up my current work and any other future career advancement in the field I love. Although I do think making bank via blogging would be pretty sick, I imagine I would burn out pretty quickly and be “blogged-out” within a couple of months.
There is also a huge difference between a hobby and a job. Blogging for me is something I like to do in my free time, when I want to. I would dread waking up knowing I had to provide amazing content every day so I could afford to pay my rent. I enjoy eating pizza, but I would never want to be a professional pizza eater (okay, maybe I would, for like a day).
So for me, blogging is a fun hobby. I get to interact with some pretty incredible people. I’ve really enjoyed the awesome welcome in to the PF community over the last six months. But don’t expect me to be coming out with a book any time soon ever, or posting articles three times a day. So back to the oringinal questions….Would you quit your job right now for equal pay as a full time blogger?
