Blogging is one of my favorite portable incomes. Done right, a blogger with just a few hours a week can make a tidy side income from their blog. But it’s also a business that can be scaled up to earn you as much as $100,000 per year or more.
But that’s not why I love blogging so much. For me, this opportunity stands out as one of the best ways to achieve the lifestyle you want…whatever your age, your background, or your interests…
Whether you just want more freedom for what matters in your life, to travel more, or even move overseas, blogging is the perfect no-boss, no-office, creative, fun income.
Whatever grabs your interest as you travel (or stroll about your hometown)—theater, restaurants, music, recipes, books, architecture, fitness, gardening, golf, nature—you can write about it on your blog…
The ins and outs of moving overseas, finding good restaurants in a new town, traveling with your family, dealing with an empty nest… Any one of these situations is fodder for a great blog. And, there’s no reason you can’t be the one to write it—whatever your background, or experience.
Folks aren’t looking for literary masterpieces: they want to connect with a real person. Whether it’s funny, sad, frustrating, unexpected or useful, they want to read your story.
When Nellie Huang started a travel blog to keep in touch with friends and family while living overseas, she had no idea it would lead to the travel lifestyle she had always dreamed of. Fast-forward to today, full-time travel blogger Nellie says, “I get paid to travel to far-flung and exotic places (Madagascar one day, Thailand or Iceland the next). Every day is an adventure; I can travel on my own terms whenever and wherever, and I make a decent living doing so—all thanks to my travel blog.”
Your ingredient list for getting started is simple. All you’ll need is:
A reliable internet connection
About $100 a year for web services
Passion for something you love
If this is you, then you’ve got what it takes. I can’t think of any other income stream that hands you as much freedom and fun—but is so easy to get started.
