Do You Blog for Fun or for a Living?

I just want to share with you these statements which I got from an article few days ago:

"Someone who does a thing for fun is different from someone who does the same thing for a living."

"Similarly, there is a critical difference between the person who blogs for fun and the person who blogs professionally."

It hit me and asked myself what did I do for the past 2 years of blogging. I think I'm not serious enough and treat my online business as just my hobby. I guess this is the reason why until now I haven't made my first 100 bucks. But everything has changed after I encountered those statements.

Why do you think someone who does a thing for fun is different from someone who does the same thing for a living? For me, if you just do a certain thing because you enjoy it, you don't care whether you make money or not because it's not that really important to you (serves as a past time). As for the other one, doing a thing for a living, no matter what the situation is or what happens, still you put everything on the line because that's where you get the money to survive.

In my opinion, nothing is better between the two. Lack of or excessive of, either of the two, is bad. It should be balance. You enjoy what you do at the same time you value it because of the potential of earning you money. Just be serious in executing a thing and make sure you enjoy along the process.

Because if you focus only in having fun without thinking of generating money, your result will always be the same. It's the same also for doing a thing for a living as I'm sure you'll get bored and tired in the long run.

So let's balance everything and do our best so we don't have regrets at the end of the day.

I hope you like it. Please don't forget to leave your comments below.

Thank you.

Avoid Sticking To Unproductive People

Actually, this stuff I am about to share can be good or bad. It depends on where you get influence from.
