Is Blogging a Freelance Writing Career?

Blogging is nothing new. Everyone is trying to make a quick buck through blogging. With Adsense and other advertising networks, it seems easy to earn passive income through blogging. However, only a few top notch bloggers can really earn a huge income from advertising.

Are you one of them?

If you are NOT, then you are just like everyone else, blogging for the fun of blogging (with the hope of earning a few dollars a day).

I love blogging too, as you can see (this is my blog). However, I have been thinking whether blogging qualifies as a form of freelance writing career.

Careers such as teaching and nursing are common but blogging?

Definitions of career:

  • the particular occupation for which you are trained
  • the general progression of your working or professional life; “the general had had a distinguished career”; “he had a long career in the law”

Are we trained to blog? No, we learn on our own.

Are we earning from our blogs? Some do, some don’t.

I do hope that blogging can be expanded into a career, but for now, blogging is a hobby for me (and it earns peanuts for me to pay some bills).

What do you think?

Is blogging a career for you, or just a hobby?
