Having been at this blog thing for the last two years I have noticed a trend. Lots of bloggers eventually become entrepreneurs. It’s like it’s in the rule book. It makes total sense too. Having started this blog I totally get how the spark for starting a business could ignite.
I stayed up many nights thinking of what I wanted to talk about, what my blog title should be, how I wanted to launch my blog, when I wanted to launch. I put in so much time learning how to connect hosting to my domain name, installing plug ins, all of the in’s and out’s of creating a blog. This blog became my night job. Still is. From the beginning, I treated it like a passion project. Without noticing, I also treated it like a business.
My guess is many other people went about building their site the same way. It’s as if getting one thing off the ground makes you wonder if there are more things you can build, be, create. I’ve seen photography, graphic design and writing businesses spring up. There are many others. I’m not shocked at all. I really feel like the blogger and the entrepreneur are the same person.
The blog is just like dipping your toe in the waters before taking the dive. What do you think? Have you seen this trend? Are you a part of the trend? Did you dive into the world of entrepreneurs?
