Your Blogging Motivation: Stay Amateur or Go Professional?

  • Jul 23, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Within the blogosphere, there are about 3 types of bloggers:

    • Amateur (writes for the passion or use it as a personal diary)
    • Professional (dabbles within the commercial space to make a little money on the side)
    • Entrepreneur (primary livelihood)

Who are you in the mix?

Come to a meet up where we discuss the three types and know its advantages and disadvantages. We're hoping we can get a good mix of all three so we can hear each other's stories and perspectives, and end the night to think if we are ready to move on to the next level (or stay where we are).

    Thanks again everyone! Unfortunately, it was too dark to take photos from my phone. But, will do it on the next one. :)

    Thanks to someone else's priority suddenly becoming mine at work, I wasn't able to attend the meetup. Hope everyone had a good time, though.

      Thanks. I really would love to be there and Tuesday nights would normally be perfect (one of the less busy evenings normally). Thanks for organising too, I know it's never a small feat.

    I would have loved to meet up as a professional blogger, but unfortunately, I'm never free on weekday evenings.

    July 22, 2013

    • Cherry C. T.

      Hi Jam. Lunch time on weekday (after the school holidays) or on Saturday afternoon would be best for me. Thanks.

      July 22, 2013

    • Jam M.

      Cool, thanks Cherry. Will check with the rest if Saturdays would be good. In the meantime, feel free to join the G+ group as we move forward to building the community. Ta!
