3 Reasons Why I'm Not Earning Money With My Blog

Most people who blog do it while earning money by doing it today. Not everyone but it's more common than not to do that. Some do it full time as their job and some part time getting a little extra on the side. I've chosen not to do this and here is three reasons why.


The Stress & Press
I get stressed now when I haven't posted anything on my blog for a few days so I don't even want to know what stress level I'd have if I knew it meant losing money.


Takes The Fun Out Of It
I've turned most of my hobbies, like jewelry making, into a money earning way. Don't get me wrong I still love to sit down and make jewelry but it isn't the same as before. Now it feels like you're working and moment when you sit to "just do it" becomes very few if any. So leaving the blog in safety.


My Mental Health
If I would work from home more than having an office to go to I would spend it at home in my PJ's never going outside the door unless I really had to. Meaning I would go back to isolating myself losing years of "work with yourself" work.



What do you think of earning money through your blog?
Something for you or not?

  1. Nah, It's not my cup of tea. As you mentioned, the stress wouldn't be worth it. And also; who the fuck would want to read my blog? It's so boring and uneventful! I mostly write in my blog for me, not really thinking about the fact that people can read it. I blog because I want to be able to look back in a few years, to see what was going on in my life right now :)

  4. This is so interesting! Blogging isn't my job but I do earn a bit of money from it. It's really interesting to read another perspective on it.

  7. Ugh, I need to follow you! Hahaha!
    I don't earn money from my blog, because I value my independence and integrity. Because, I mean, how seriously can you take a paid-for product review? Not very.

      True, very true! I do value blogs who does reviews and are 100% honest if they don't like it on the other hand :)

    1. Know how you feel! I've turned most hobbies to money as I said above and it does add more stress into your life taking the charm and fun out of it. My blog is my diary and that's that :D
