My Business is a hobby and I'm okay with that

Last Update: June 11, 2018

I love to write and so over the last few years being a blogger and website builder has become a huge part of who I am. Blogging gives me a voice. I get to share my opinions and help people who are like me. It is very satisfying knowing that I am helping people.

I love it when I see people here at Wealthy Affiliate pouring their passions into their buisness and wanting to be able to quit their job. You can become a millionaire by following your passion. But that isn't me. I really have no desire to fire my boss.

I guess I am pretty lucky because I have a job that I am very passionate about love doing every day. I want to do my work way into my 70's.

However, the industry that I am in offers little for retirement. So I need to create my own nest egg.

Lucky for me, my hobby is blogging.

I find blogging very relaxing and good therapy. It gives me a chance to gripe if I want to. Or share a funny story. Or help others. I get to be free to be me and have a voice!

My websites and blogs bring me in some nice "mailbox money" which I can put away for a rainy day. Mailbox money is money that seems to appear in my mailbox. It comes in many forms. This is the fun part of affiliate marketing. Lot's of nice streams of income is fun!

So this post is for anyone out there who loves what they do as a career, but are worried about retirement or should I say lack of retirement. Or maybe you don't have a burning desire to make money online quickly and just love to write. Blogging can be a great hobby!

Blogging about your passions can generate some pretty amazing income on the side even if money isn't a worry for you. But the great thing is the fact that you will be creating residual income. This means if you start blogging now, you will have a nice monthly income where you will not ever have to worry about retirement.

And when you retire, since you will not have to stress about money, you can actually enjoy every moment of it!

My point is we are all different. And not everyone is looking to get rich and quit their job. The best thing about the Wealthy Affiliate community is that there is something here for everyone!
