A reminder that you create a blog for passion not for money

I always like posts like these, where a successful creator shares how their various side projects has done over the course of a year. Matt is a way bigger blogger than me and I have a tenth of his traffic and his blog is still a small portion of his income. This is a good reminder for me as I’ve discovered (especially over the last year) that you can’t make any real income from a blog these days. Any income I have from side projects is from freelance or donations.

But… you shouldn’t get into blogging or any creative endeavour to make make money anyway.

For me as I look to the new year and projects I’m going to go for things where I can learn new skills or push myself a bit. I’m still undecided on what I’ll do but this post was definitely good timing.
