“Jon, you’re unbelievable! You have your day job yet you’re still very diligent with your blog. Do you even earn from blogging?”
“YES!” that’s my resounding answer to a friend’s poking question.
I earn just a decent amount from my blog, but a big help as additional income from my regular job. I’ve already shared this to you in my previous posts, that when my father passed away more than a year ago, I hit rock bottom financially. From the staggering hospital bills to loans, huge portion of my salary goes to payments. Don’t worry, I am much better now, but I couldn’t deny the fact that in times when I needed extra income, my earnings from my blog was a huge help, and I am very thankful for that.
So if my readers ask me if they can also earn online, I always say that it is possible. It is definitely not easy, but through hardwork and patience, it can be done.
I started my travel blog about 3 years ago. But even before that, I was already looking for ways to earn online. Until I realized that since I love writing, I can create a blog not just a way for me to pursue what I love doing but also for a possibility of earning extra income. Since I also enjoy traveling and exploring, I decided to write about travel.
