It’s simple to do if you want to earn a passive income. First you just need to find something you’re passionate about. If you've been doing your research then you've probably heard that a million times, but I’m gonna tell you why you need that passion.
The reason for this passion is, you’re going to need to write content and a lot of it. It’s difficult to write about something that you’re not passionate about. Especially if you need to write tons of content, and if you want to earn from blogging you are going to need tons, trust me.
Producing one or two blog posts a week is not the hard part, although it’s not easy. You need to remember that writing and publishing content on a blog is the beginning not the end. Some bloggers will post to their blog and maybe a few social networks and call it a day. Then they wonder why they aren't getting any traffic or earning from their blog.
Once you post to your blog, you have to go out and market that post. In reality if you’re doing things right, you've been marketing that post for weeks before it was ever published. Marketing your blog and the individual posts takes time and more content.
You are going to be producing massive amounts of content on each social site, not to mention the comments you’ll receive on the post itself. So you see, you absolutely need to be passionate about your topic. If you are then it’s only a matter of time and effort that gets you to the prize.
