Some people love to write. It is their lives, to the point where others will refer to their “love life” of the computer. Not that this is a bad thing, but the problem is that for some writing is a big deal and they want to see success with it.
So, they will build their networks and build their platforms and build up their writing, and never see any money. Now, this is not a bad thing, but if you don’t make money and you don’t work outside the home, in a day to day job, you will find that people will not be as supportive of your efforts.
Why? Frankly the big deal about writing is that you can make money and you can support yourself with your writing and you can be successful. How successful depends on you.
Still money is important and people will face burnout without money from their writing, now some will say build up your blog to the point of big traffic and less work, and of course more money… but in the end you will still face burnout if you lose your passion for writing.
But what is more important? The writing or the money?
