A Day Job is Not bad

Do you live soley by blogging or writing material for the Internet? Or are you like mo who still has a day job? Or if not maybe you own a business?

Well if you are … well its not too bad. Whatever happens you still have a way to bring home the bacon so to speak. Often a day job is a blessing for writers. And if one is really luck the job will allow the writer to write the post or article in piece.

The creator of Dilbert Scott Adams was an engineer and worked for Bell Telephone. He actually worked there for years even when he began drawing Dilbert. And left only when he was sort of laid off.

I have known a number of full time bloggers who earn their income from blogging. But I have also known a lot of full time bloggers who earn their money from other things. Some are resellers of Internet Service Providers and Hosting services. Some are also reporters or writers for magazines.

Not all of us can be Stephen King. Who incidentally started out as a High School teacher. But we can write and still afford to live.

    I believe that diversification of income is all good & beneficial as well. However, you might just be underestimating importance of priorities & focus in life to succeed. That drive to succeed can’t be experienced in all things you do. If anyone can focus in spite of day job, it’s great. But there are more failures around is due to lack of drive only. What do you think?

    I was reading up on a number of well known writers – who had day jobs that actually complemented their writing. I think focus is still the key and whatever motivates you to write just do it whether it be the scent of apples or something else.
