4. Sponsorships

However, every blogger must be careful when converting their blogs into part time jobs. When writing purely for fun, motivation never ceases and the ideas just keep coming. When writing has evolved into a “must” basis, the blogger can experience dullness in writing. It is important to strike a balance between the two and to maintain the original charm of your blog that has captured your audience in the first place.
