For me blogging is something that I like, I could do it for a long time without even having a return from it. But, I truly believe that if you put a lot of efforts to something, make something useful for others, you must receive a profit out of it. First of all it motivates you not to give up and secondly it inspires you to make your work better.
I have been working as a freelancer for nearly 5 years. Now I am working both as an academic writer and blogger. And that is to say, these two “similar” works are completely different. But, being an academic writer is a useful way to find new interesting information which I can share here on my blog. Of course, I do not share essays that I sent to a customer, I mean knowledge and experience received while working as an academic writer.
