I’m Afraid To Quit My Day Job For Blogging (Here’s why You Need to Quit)

Posted by on 21st Feb 2013 | 3 comments

Do you want to become an internet entrepreneur?

Are you tired of your boss at work?

Do you desire to quit your 9-5 day job and start a blogging business? If you answered ‘‘NO’‘ to the above questions, then I’ll give you 8 vital reasons why you need to quit your job and start blogging.

1. You can work while on bed or in your Pajamas

Think about this: Won’t you love to work while on bed rather than wake up by 5am rushing to the office?

I’m not saying this to convince you into quitting your job but because, I want you to live a stress-free life and at the same time, earn more money.

Pro tip: You could use your bedroom as your office so you’d be able to work more productively.

2. You can choose your own working hours

Quit your day job and start bloggingIn your company or place of work, your boss determines your working hours and you dare not go home without the authorization of your boss. But in a blogging business, no one has control over your time and you’re at your own free will to work anytime or anywhere you want!

3. You could triple your paycheck and promote yourself three times in a month!

The highest amount you’ll ever get if you’re promoted in your place of work is a 10% increase in salary. And even if you were promoted, you have to wait for another 1 to 2 years to get another promotion but as a blogger, you can triple your paycheck four times a month! You determine your pay!

Pro tip: You can’t control or determine your pay as an employee– but you can control the amount you make with a blog. Though blogging is profitable but it really takes a lot of hard work to make BIG FIGURES…

It’s advisable to quit your job when your blog is earning two times of what your job pays you.

4. No experience or qualification required

You don’t need a Masters or PHD to start a blogging business. In fact, you don’t even need an high school certificate. All you need is hardwork, the willingness to learn, and the determination to succeed.

That’s what will single you out from the crowd!

5. You’re not on any work pressure

If you work a 9 to 5 day job, you have to follow the instructions of your boss, accomplish the task you’re assigned to do and also meet deadlines but with blogging, you’re not under pressure. You can work anytime you want to and you can even decide to go two days off work.  That’s the beauty of being a blogger!

6. You Determine Your Pay

In a 9 to 5 day job, your firm determines your salary but your blogging salary depends on how much effort you put in. There’s no limit to what you can earn with blogging. You can earn $3,000 today and $30,000 dollars tomorrow.

7. Go For Vacations Anyday, Anywhere, Anytime…

If you work 9 to 5, you can’t plan your vacation anytime. You have to get approval from your boss but with blogging, you can decide to go on vacation anytime. In fact, you can even go on a 6 months vacation!

8. A secured Financial Future

If you’re planning to secure your future financial with your 9 to 5 day job then you’re joking with your life. A 9 to 5 day job can never give you financial freedom even if you work for decades…

Whereas, on the other hand, you can make more money for the rest of your life by blogging.

All you need is hardwork and persistence.

Are you ready to quit your job and start a blogging business?

The above question is meant for you to answer.

Save your future by starting an online business.

    Hey Daniel – I can’t think of any more reasons! Absolutely brilliant post and exactly why I strive to be in this position (hopefully in the near future). To have the flexibility in life (no requests for annual leave), extra motivation to succeed as you are working for yourself and not for the corporates at the top, and lastly, enjoying what you do! How many of us force ourselves to wake up everyday to do the same mundane boring job where we are forever counting down to the weekend.

    I don’t agree with your thoughts. I believe one can become blogger while doing his 9 to 5 job. A 9 to 5 job can give you consistent income to earn bread and butter for your family. Whereas income from blogging is not certain and can vary depending upon the changes introduced by G.

    Above all, you can make blogging as your passive income rather than making it your primary income. Unless your earning from blogging surpass your monthly earnings form your job, you shouldn’t quit your job.

    I would LOVE to quit my day job! But I do make a decent amount of money, so the blog would have to generate some big bucks. But the idea of time freedom to spend with my family, vacation more, and make a substantial income would be a dream come true. I think the key is trying to get on the blogging platform and make consistent actions to increase your income to your comfort level. Once you have the steady source of income, then you are good to go.

    What do you think about the longevity of this industry? Say, 10 years down the road, is there a good confidence that we’ll still be safe, or will we face the 9-5 dreadful term of “layoff” with change?
