In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Money for Nothing.”
If someone had asked me a few months ago what my dream job was I don’t think I would have been able to give them an answer. Some people have a set idea of what they want as a dream job or what they want to do as a career but I haven’t really felt like that before. Today while looking at The Daily Post’s writing prompt where it asked what our ultimate dream job would be, blogging was the first thing that came into my mind and I realised how much I love it. The small thoughts I used to have about writing as a job came back and I thought how I would love to have blogging be my job.
Do I think I will be good enough to write for a living? No, I still have my doubts about my writing. What I do know is that I enjoy it and want to learn more. I want to improve for myself and for my blog. To be able to see how my writing improves over time will be really interesting and if someone gets some enjoyment or help from what I write then it makes it all the more worth it.
I feel like there are so many good bloggers out there that are wanting to make a living out of blogging and for me it seems like it will only ever be a dream of mine. It would be so good to be able to have a job that I could do at home with a somewhat flexible schedule to work around M.E. I need to be able to take breaks when I can, spend some days in bed and be able to work around my illness and do what I can. Most jobs I can’t do but I feel like blogging might be something that my illness does allow me to do. Even though blogging is just a hobby I love and I’m not in it just for the money, it is nice to know that I actually do have a dream job which is writing.
Have you got a dream job? I’d love to hear about it.
