Start a blog, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.

BLOGGING FOR PASSION
One of the biggest mistakes that bloggers make is choosing to write for money over passion.
If you write strictly for money, you will only have inspiration to write as long as you’re earning money.
The minute that money doesn’t come your way, you’ll get discouraged and lose your inspiration to write all together. A huge no no!
On the other hand, if you write for passion, you won’t rely on any outside factors for inspiration. You’ll remain true to yourself and your blog because everything you need (true passion) to continue writing is already inside of YOU, not outside or around you.
Which is why, in the first post of this series we will be discussing all about PASSION!
SAVE FOR LATER!
WHAT IS PASSION?
Passion /ˈpaSHən/: An intense desire or enthusiasm for something.
“All your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day become your profession”
DISCOVER YOUR PASSION TO BLOG
What are you most passionate about in life?
What are the things that bring you genuine joy? Is it art? Fashion? Fitness? Health? Wellness? Beauty? Make up? Food? Sports? Journaling?
It can definietly be more than one thing! I am personally passionate about many things in life, so I can’t just choose one!
Take a good minute to think and go ahead and list 5 topics you are most passionate about. Don’t think too hard. Let your answers be completely genuine, sincere and natural.
My top 5 would definietly be:
- healthy, happy & productive lifestyle
FOCUS ON YOUR PASSION
Once you have discovered and written down the 5 topics that interest you the most, it’s time to completely focus on them. Yes, it’s as simple as it sounds – FOCUS on your passion.
How can you focus on your passion?
PRACTICE IT YOURSELF
If your passion is fitness, don’t just write about fitness topics based off on other’s experiences, engage with fitness yourself. Workout, try out new exercises, go to the gym, workout at home, lead a fit lifestyle, etc! Or if your passion is art, then draw, paint, sculpt, etc.
Try to actively engage with anything related to your passion.
List some activities that you can do for each of your passions, it could be anything like drawing, working out, journaling, writing, cooking, traveling, or doing your makeup!
FEED YOUR PASSION
No matter how much you already know (or think you know!) about a topic, you can always learn something new!
Don’t ever limit yourself.
Read books and articles, study textbooks, watch videos, listen to podcasts, ask experts in the field, etc. Use your resources to your favor.
Take a moment to look for sources that will help you feed your passion!
Brainstorm the books you can read, podcasts you can listen to, videos you can watch, and blogs you can subscribe to.
