Filipinos’ Views about Blogging Careers

The Philippines is a country where a person’s success is measured by the kind of job and stability that is achieved beyond the college years. For many people, a successful life is led by having a good paying job in a multinational corporation. However, with the digital age, there are changes in society that opens up avenues for people to have what is known as “unconventional jobs” – or simply, jobs that are not in a corporate setup.

Different kinds of unconventional jobs in the country are not considered as serious employment. There are photographers, foodies, writers, bloggers, fashionistas and the like. For many, they have this stigma that blogging is merely a hobby and not a career; making a career out of a hobby is impossible. In the minds of a lot of people, these kinds of careers are often short lived that if a person does not work in a corporate set-up then for many it means that success is still yet to be achieved.

What many people don’t know is that blogging careers require passion. It needs a passion to be curious and a passion to inform, to yearn for knowledge and share that piece of intelligence to all those who are willing to listen. A lot of people have been successful blogging through their careers and they seem to be quite satisfied with what they have achieved despite what others think about it. Often, bloggers get lots of perks – they can get free stuff in exchange for advertisement, they can become travelers of their own right. Their wanderlust never reaches its limit.
