Are You Blogging For Glory?
When I was young my parents both owned Greek restaurants and as I grew older I decided to take up catering classes in college.
After a couple of years I ended up working in two different Michelin star restaurants, in fact both of them got their Michelin stars when I was working there.
What I discovered was that the people working here where infatuated with food and their egos, as a matter of fact I remember coming back home to my grannies house one day and telling her.
They are doing it for Glory it is all about them feeding their ego, and to this day still I believe nothing has changed in this respect in the industry.
Anyone who will spend 6 or 7 days a week in a kitchen weekly, with complete disregard for their life sunshine or health . Working from maybe 6am in the morning till 2am some nights, is surely not doing it for the money it is all about glory.
And in the catering industry if that’s your thing then that’s okay. You will get a wage in fact if you are in higher positions in the business you may even be able to live quite well off the wage or money you make.
Now if you switch to Blogging if you do not have a certain mindset then you could really end up blogging for glory.
What do I mean by this? Well you might just love blogging? You may love the interaction from readers, the learning you get while researching your topic, you may love the idea of being able to do what you like from home or anywhere that you have an internet connection.
There is one little thing. If you do not learn to monetise it then you probably will not get paid. As I said earlier in the catering industry you can do stuff for just the glory, but in many cases you will still get paid.
On the other hand when it comes to blogging for glory, if there is no money coming in from your blogging, or online marketing efforts.Then your life will not be very glorious.
Do you really think that you can feel really glorious when you cannot put food on the table or keep a roof over your head? I don’t really think so, unless of course you live on an island somewhere that grows it’s own food and has an internet connection that’s free 😉 (Hardly Likely)
One thing I have discovered both from watching it on the outside and being in the position ego alone will not carry you very far.
On the other hand self improvement educating oneself on what is important and being able to provide value in exchange for money goods or services. Will give you a good ROI.
Knowing about how to add a Call To Action to your blog posts and build an email list will increase your blogging profit substantially. Which will also mean you are not dependant on handouts or job security to live your life.
