Years back, Blogging was just a hobby and people used to maintain a personal blog as an online diary. But in recent time, Blogging has evolved way ahead of them, and people who started a blog for self-interest are making handsome income out of it. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with making money from your Passion. Many people blog, just to share their ideas and their codes. For example, a WordPress developer. Many people blog because they hate something, and they like to rant about it on their blog. Many bloggers like me and you blog to share information and make a living out of it.

Every Blogger and every blog serve a purpose and here I’m going to ask a simple question to know, Why did you start Blogging? What made you love writing and what made you a Blogger?

Do you, also feel stronger when you say in the crowd “Hey! I’m a Blogger”?

This is going to be short and direct. This is a question for everyone reading this to answer. The answers you give will make this post longer. I know you are hesitating to answer the question. Think well before you answer it.

Before you star blogging or using all the plugins, methods and medium of blogging, the first thing you need to know is why you started blogging. The reason you started is the strength you hold on to when you are not getting anything from your blog.

Please note. Don’t just read and continue your surfing online. I need you to do three things.

  • Read through.
  • Answer the question.
  • Share this post with all your friends so that they also can respond to this.

One benefit of doing this is that you will let people know why you are blogging. Whenever they need anything related to why you are blogging, they will contact you. Then, you render them your service or product.

So let’s get started!

    I first started blogging so that I could just write. Simply write. I have loved writing all my life. With time this has grown to include blogging about my areas of interest like technology, social media and even politics. And now, I want to make something out of it.

    “If you do the work of your interest, is like to play the cricket by cricketers” – Shadab
    While I was in institute, I love to play with HTML, CSS and designing the webpages and I decided that I will work on it because I love it and never submit our resume to institute for in campus job placement because if I do the work of my interest for 5 hours regular then it will be like a play but If I do what we don’t want for only 1 hour, will be so much time for me.

    Well in early 2008 i came to know that money can be made online, but don’t know how, started with blogspot blog, then moved to wp and started money from link sales. After that i bought many sites/domains and then earned good amount from link sales. For me definition of making money online was only through link sales, traffic and adsense were dreams for me.

    But in 2010 i came realized that there is no passion in what i was doing and i decided to go for tech blog in which my passion lies, off course money was there but i didn’t knew how to make it. But i decided to strictly stick to G’s guidelines and it rewarded me handsomely with good monthly adsense check.

    Reward less passion is of no means and i think some reward is good enough to boost your passion and make you stick to what you like.
