One of the most advantages of blogging, you can reflect your mind and take your blog along with your personality. Even, you can monetize your blog in order to drive a source of income in life. If you are a passionate blogger then you must also know that you can turn your own blog into a profitable business. However, it all depends on your own interests. You may be highly interested in the primary topic of your blog.
Hence the passion.
Apart from passion, as I said earlier you can drive income from it, the primary goal or passion varies from not just passionate about the topic instead to the money as well.
That’s nothing wrong to turn your passionate blog into a business. And no one can stop you from doing it.
That’s the power of blogging. I have discussed numerous times about monetizing a blog and even, I could recall one of the writings on how you can turn your personal blog into a business.
