First of all I just wanted to say, I’ve only been writing my travel blog for about a month now, but I’m loving it. Not just writing about a subject I truly enjoy, but also from reading your blogs. I try to read at least ten a day and I must say I am really impressed by so many of them. The photography, the excellence of writing and the overall quality of your blogs is very professional. Which leads me to my question:Have any of you ever thought of ‘turning pro’ ? By that I mean have you thought of monetizing your blog. If you haven’t, why not? What criteria or threshold would you need to consider it? What are your thoughts overall about people who do? I’ll put my answer in the next paragraph.
Short answer for me is no. At least for the long foreseeable future. I’ve been at this just a month. I am barely an embryo. Right now my only focus is coming up with posts people enjoy, trying to find “my voice” and building a community. Would it be nice? Sure, possibly. Maybe if I made enough to fund my annual vacations that would be great. But I am almost scared to do more than that because sometimes it’s best not to turn something you love in to a business. I’m a bit conflicted, but like I said I’m an embryo not even a full fledged baby. So it isn’t anything I have to decide on anytime in the near or fairly distant future anyway.
Would really love to hear your thoughts And again , I must say i don’t know any of you personally, but definitely feel a kinship through your amazing blogs’
