“What do you love doing that you wish you could get paid for?”
If I could get paid for blogging I most certainly would, and in a heartbeat, but the way bloggers get paid these days is usually by selling their souls. You know what I mean, either allowing ads on their blog or making it so hyper-focused on popular culture that it loses something of its personality. As much as I love my personality I don’t think I would be able to do what is necessary to change my blog accordingly.
But what if I could get paid for blogging without changing anything at all about my blog? Maybe there’s somebody out there with a truckload of money who wants to support a blogger who journals out loud for the whole world to read.
Wait, though. I have three other blogs, all of which are much more specialized than this one, and I have quite a few followers in two out of the three. If I spent as much time on those as I do on this one perhaps someone would be willing to finance me doing it full time. Another option, of course, is visiting Freshly Pressed every day and modeling the themes of each blog entry on the ones that have somehow found their way there.
Regardless of anything else, though, I would have to make sure I still loved creating my blogs as much as I do today. Otherwise, what would be the point?
