Blogging Your Passion – Make Money Blogging

by · 4 comments

There are so many people that hate their jobs and truly loathe getting up and going to work every day.  I used to be one of them.

So why do so many people continue doing something that makes them so unhappy?  Debt usually plays a huge roll.  A simple question to ask yourself is, “If you didn’t have any debt, and thus only needed a fraction of your current monthly income, would you still get up and go work at your current job every day?” The answer is usually a resounding NO!

Besides being passionate about eliminating debt, I am also hugely passionate about figuring out how to earn money doing creative work I love… and helping others do the same.  If you hate your job and need a change, then why not create that change?  No one is going to do it for you!

At the end of February 2011 I left the working world to become a full-time entrepreneur.  It is a risk, but I had a plan.  I have been blogging since January of 2009 and have been able to build up several sites with a decent amount of traffic.  Now my job is to consistently build those sites and to turn them into revenue producing assets that help people and provide for my family.  My goals include helping others, being able to work from anywhere with an Internet connection, earn money at all hours of the day rather than trading time for money, and to create something I’m passionate about.

Who do I learn from?  Well, a lot of it has been trial and error over the years, but because I recently went full-time, I’ve been receiving coaching from guys who have already become very successful at what I’m trying to do.  Enter Bob Lotich of and Jonathan Milligan of

Congratulations on quitting your job and going full time with the blogging. I’m an IT Manager like you were, so I know exactly how stressful it can be. Thankfully, I have the best job of my career right now and I’m in no big hurry to quit. I have plenty of time to work and blog. So, I plan to double dip for a while. Hopefully, the stock options will come in and I can pay off my house, right around the same time I start making big money on my blog. At least, that’s the dream.
