For a long time, starting a blog was just a way to get on the bandwagon of making money online, and maybe to have a simple portfolio site of the work I was doing. I spent a few months looking into that world. I thought I would set-up a niche blog, find a few keywords, write some articles (or pay someone else to write them for me), and let google adsense and affiliate money lay a foundation for passive income. Thankfully, things didn’t turn out that way.
Maybe that way of making money is good for some people, if they can pull it off, but I know myself enough to know that even after a lot of effort into preparing this type of business model, I would have lost interest in it really quickly. My heart just wouldn’t have been into it without a purpose.
