Why Blogging Isn't An Easy Career/Hobby

by - Thursday, September 13, 2018

Blogging can be a rewarding job or hobby depending on how seriously you want to take it, but it's not the easiest job or hobby because of several reasons.

You often do everything by yourself
Unless you're a Zoella level blogger raking in tens of millions per year and can hire a whole team to help you, you're going to have to do everything by yourself. You're not only your own marketer, you're also your own photographer, your own secretary, and your own editor. However, you might have a friend or partner who is willing enough to shoot some outfits for you a few days a week.

Writer's block
The worst feeling is blogger's block when you have a ton of photos but your mind blanks on what to write about. That's the worst if you're a daily blogger.

Photographing can be a pain 
Photographing can be a pain, mostly because of the weather, but also because certain tools like Photoshop are very expensive.

Most bloggers don't blog full-time
Most bloggers I follow have separate jobs, whether it's part-time or full-time. Some bloggers are even students in high school or university, meaning that on top of blogging, they have to study and do homework.

Burnout is real
Blogger burnout is very real when someone is so fed up with not having any ideas they abruptly quit and don't return, and that hiatus can last days, weeks, months, or forever.

Is blogging a hobby for you?
