The thought of having a blog is so important, especially when you're new.

I know, it's kind of a crazy question. But this is definitely something that kind of kind of rolled around in my head a little bit. And I've seen questions about a lot of questions about blogging and from money. Niche blogging, and just blogging for profit period should interest you, shouldn't it interest you? And I have two takes on this.
Should niche blogging for profit interest you? Yes. And No. And you're probably saying to yourself, yes and no. What does he mean by that? Okay, here's what I mean by that. Of course, the yes side is, you know, obviously, it's all monetary related. Who wouldn't want to, I guess, make money blogging, or make money doing some type of side, hustle online, make money online, and get paid from it?
You know, there's, there's, there's different reasons why, you know, some people start blogging and, you know, do a lot of great things with their, you know, their, their money or what have you. Some people do it, and you know, they profit for this, they make a living that way. And there's nothing wrong with it. It's nothing wrong with you know, making life changing money, doing it your way doing it online. And, you know, kind of getting away from that, that nine to five, freedom, everybody wants freedom.
So you know, free to be away from that nine to five, there is absolutely nothing wrong with freedom. There's nothing wrong with blogging, for profit blogging for money, you know, the time freedom that comes with, it's not like waking up in the morning. And doing what you want to do, whether if it's, it's something such as meditating, walking the dog, doing all every in anything going to the gym, anything that you want, you just know, you're not doing a nine to five, you're not on anybody else's time.
You're not on anybody else's dime, but but your own, you know, you're waking up every morning with money in your bank account. You know, there's nothing wrong with that. That's the lure that will lure all of us into wanting to make money online, wanting to blog, write articles, you know, to help people and so on and so forth. And the flip side to that is no should niche blogging for profit interest, you know, it shouldn't. And here's why I say that. If you only focus on money, doing this, you will fail.
If you only focus on money, you will absolutely 100% fail. And here's why you should have a purpose. And I think your purpose should be this one simple thing, and that's helping others. You don't have to know them to help them. But you can provide information to help people if you love helping people, you understand what I'm talking about the transition, the mindset and the transition will be much easier. You know, when you help people, you know, there's a joy that comes from that. That's an amazing feeling for putting out a piece of content and someone you know, they get joy from it.
They, they you put out information for people to solve problems. You know, you're a problem solver. And that's that's what you should want to be you know, you should love solving people problems helping them. It should give you in my opinion, it should give you a huge high heaven people should give you a huge high I don't understand the mindset of anyone helping someone and they don't get some type of gratification for that from from that Uh, you know, not anything on a narcissistic level or anything like that, but just just, you know, it should make you feel good.
You know, helping people, you know, naturally makes people feel good. And if you solve a problem, you will give that you'll, first of all, you'll get the whole, the whole reason of why you know, you're a problem solver. Even when you are blogging, you should want to be a problem solver. If you think of it from that perspective, you'll be just fine. You know, if it doesn't don't solve a problem, or if you don't enjoy solving problems, you shouldn't be doing it same to say, if you don't like helping others, you shouldn't be blogging, what joy you getting out of just just really for the money.
You know, for some people, you know, I get it, I get it, but what's your purpose? That's the real question. What's your purpose? I do think like I said, I do think niche blogging, for money, niche blogging for profit, I think it should interest you, if you're doing it for the right reasons. If it doesn't interest you, then don't do it. It's like anything else. Don't do it. You're, you're gonna quit anyway, you're gonna quit.
If you don't enjoy solving the problems through through blog and through your, your writing, you're gonna quit eventually, if you just focus on money, you're gonna quit because you're not gonna, most people not gonna make money blogging, if the mindset is just that if their focus is only on money, they're going to quit.
I guarantee you that they're going to quit. So it really is, it really is a two way street. Like I say yes. And no. So it all depends on you. And your goals. And and I guess your I guess your moral compass to a degree is what a lot of people don't look at it that way. Hey, it's truth. For my in my opinion, anyway. And there's a lot of things to back up what I said, a lot of bloggers who backup a lot of other bloggers outside of me will back up what I said to a degree.
