1 year ago I didn’t even know what blogging was, and now I write multiple blogs and even freelance. This is why I started blogging and my main reason for blogging:
My Reason for Blogging
I met a nice exchange student during my last year of study and she was going to have to move back to Germany at the end of the semester. Fortunately, I had studied German, so the language wouldn’t be a problem. Rather, the main issue was money. I started to read about blogging and how people were making money just by writing. So I didn’t really believe the hype, but decided to give it a try anyway. At least it might earn me a little extra spending money while I blow all my money in Germany.
Looking for Jobs in Germany
At the beginning, blogging wasn’t really bringing any substantial income so I looked for jobs all throughout Germany. I ended up working on a U.S. army base in Stuttgart getting paid $7 per hour. This wasn’t really keeping me afloat. So, I kept working at blogging earning a little extra cash there. However, as hard as I tried I couldn’t find a real job. I have a degree in Marketing and know German well, but I just kept feeling that I was going no where.
I get a Big Reason for Blogging
After 5 months of floating around, I went home. I needed time to recuperate and try to get my head straight. A strange thing happened though. My blogs started to take off, I started to earn $600, then $1200, then $1800. Soon, I was able to consider blogging a “job”. From then on out I had real reasons for blogging.
Back to Germany
Now able to earn an income online, I flew back to Germany in December, (read about my arrival) and so here I am sitting in the small town of Tuebingen writing and looking back at my almost full year of blogging.
