As an old school blogger I enjoy hearing about others’ passion for their topics when they blog. Knowing they feel as I do justifies all the long hours. Lately though I’ve been hearing a different take; folks blogging not because they love it but because it’s a “work at home” job. The passion isn’t there, instead they’re motivated by paychecks and thoughts of working at home. I get it. Who wants to go back to an office job?
We’re seeing a new breed of bloggers now. It’s not only about sharing love for a topic or building up a community, it’s about a paycheck.
So my question to you, dear readers, is: Does it make a difference? Does it make a difference to you if you’re reading a blog written by someone with passion or someone covering the bases to earn money? Can you tell the difference…and if so, how?
