When you ask yourself why you are starting a blog there are always two reasons:
- You want to help people do something. This is the feel good Why. This is the Why you get to tell yourself and others to keep your conscience clear.
- You want to make money and not just a little bit of money. You want to make the type of money that the Income Reports people make.
Many people have a hard time making 1 and 2 work together, but let me tell you a little secret:
Once you start making money with something, you can learn to become passionate about it real quick.
Not a single how to make money blogger has started off by saying that they are passionate about teaching others how to make money. However, it becomes really easy to be passionate about the topic when you are making 5-6 figures from it every single month.
Sometimes following your passion is exactly what is holding you back from making money. Besides, isn’t it easier to help others when you have money in the bank than when you don’t?
I now am running/building up over 15 different blogs. That’s a stupid number of blogs but I do it because I need to continue to test out different niches.
Do you think I have a passion for all of these different niches? Hell no!
However, I do have a passion for what these mini-businesses allow me to do and that is enjoy the life that I do.
You can start a blog behind your passion and make money with it but I found it easier to make money in niches that others are passionate about and just become passionate about the lifestyle that blogging allows me to live.
