Should I Quit My Job to be a Blogger/Affiliate Marketer?

Should you quit your job to make money online with blogging?

NO!!!  Do Not Quit Your Job to become a Blogger.  You should not quit your day job until your blogging income can replace your JOB income.  It may be the new American Dream to sit at home and type up a few blog posts for a few hours, then do what ever you want and watch the money pile up into your PayPal account.

That may be the dream, but it certainly is not the reality of blogging and affiliate marketing.  Those people who are making it big have worked many long hours to get where they are today.  It may have taken them 5 years or more to start making that 6 Figure Income.

Then once the money starts pouring in what do they do?   They automate as much as they can so that money continues to keep pouring into their accounts.  Then they go and invest in new ventures or try to recreate their success again and again.

Now that you have read all of the above note that I do not currently have a job.  Only because I am a stay at home mom and take care of the kids.  But if you do not have a job for whatever reason then blogging for money can be a great option if you can do it.

On the other hand if you hate your job and think that by quitting and telling your boss to shove it would light a fire under your butt to make it rich in the blogging world.  Well then you just might want to consider that point.  Also consider how you will pay for your bills during the slow start that is associated with money making blogs.
