What It's About
Is blogging still a viable side hustle?
Notes from Chris
Episode 1103I don’t remember the first time I heard the word “blog.” It was probably when I was living in Africa sometime between 2002-2006. I started mine in 2008 and worried that I was too late. Today’s listener is wondering if he’s missed out on the golden age of blogging. He wants to start a blog … but is it too late now? Is it too late for him? Have we reached maximum blogging capacity of the internet? Today's question comes from Jon:
"My day job is in software sales, but I’m interested in helping people who hate sales—like freelancers for example—I can see a need for people who find it “icky” or “gross.” I’m thinking of starting a blog because it would give me the freedom to work on it whenever I can, but I’m wondering if it’s the right path. I’m also wondering if I've missed the boat and there are millions of blogs out there. If you don’t think I should have a blog, what should it be?"Listen to today's episode to learn more...
