Your expertise and knowledge
Blogging still remains to be a platform where you can share your experiences and hones opinions about products, services or even life as a whole. Some people enjoy the feeling of being able to express themselves in words through literary forms.

A lot of bloggers have managed to create a brand for themselves online. You would be surprised with how much bloggers earn from their blogs through sponsored posts, affiliate marketing and advertisements. What’s good about the monetary benefits that come with blogging is that they are usually passive. You literally make money while you sleep. However, your blog does not instantly monetize itself. It takes time or for some cases, extensive effort before your blog manages to make money on its own.
A niche you are passionate about
Some writers get their motivation from the satisfaction that they get from blogging. Your drive towards your niche, say photography, parenting or your pets are also sufficient motivation that will keep you writing. Getting a job online and creating a stable career is pure hard work, inspiration and motivation. A good resume can also help you go a long way.

Your family and love ones
Personally, my children and family motivates me to continue blogging. I know that my blog is still far from generating monthly income and the traffic that I get from my articles are far from my goals and dreams. However, blogging is an opportunity that I will continue to pursue to get to that goal – creating a passive income. Knowing that someday my efforts in blogging will pay-off and will allow me to enjoy more time with my kids is my motivation. I can skip a day of work to attend a soccer game with them, leave for a week to visit Disneyland and come home with still a complete paycheck by the end of the month. The thought of what I can give to my kids, through my efforts in blogging, keeps me going and encourages me to blog.
