What does it mean to be a blogger? I suppose that the main part of people who launched a blog thought about how to monetize a blog and get succeed financially in their passion for writing. Many talented writers could become successful bloggers but to reach this goal, it is not only enough to write but it is important to know how to market it online.
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.
First of all, I decided to start blogging when I found out that I want to share. We used to be consumers, and rarely givers. I think it is like to give a present. Some people like more giving presents, while others want only to receive them. I am sure we should live in balance and do not forget about sharing. If you are knowledgeable of something, do not be afraid of sharing your knowledge and experience to others. As such it always makes you wiser.
