THE BUSINESS SIDE OF BLOGGING | TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD WHILE STUDYING
People are born with a different purpose in life, and as they grow up, they realize the path they really want to take. When they finally found what they were born for, they will reach for it no matter what it takes. It does not feel like a challenge, nor does it feel like they are sacrificing; it only feels like they are living their life the way they want it to be.
Travellers are definitely the best definition of risk-takers and heart-followers. Some of them give up all material things that they think unnecessary in life. For them, witnessing different cultures, meeting different people, and experiencing various things are the real definition of life. They do not live in a socially-constructed society where people would think you are a loser if you do not own a well-furnished house, a cool car, or a stable job in a big corporation. They go against the connotation that being successful means owning these worldly things. As a matter of fact, some of them live with nothing. This is why they decide to blog the places they visit, and experiences they have. Aside from being able to share and inform other people of the happiness one might get in traveling, they also earn money, which they use to live and travel more. Oh, well it is a fact that some of these travel blogger ear a great sum of money through their Adsense and affiliates. Which makes their blog their own business, so to speak.
Most travelers weren’t able to earn a college diploma since they jump from one place to another. Enrolling in a university would mean that they need to stay at the place where the university is located, and temporarily stop traveling. This would be a big barrier in living their life to their fullest desire. But the presence of online colleges, where they only need to attend online classes, makes it possible for them to finally receive a college diploma without sacrificing their hobbies. They can continue traveling while studying.
Attending online classes, however, requires the same responsibility and discipline to that of a normal university. Therefore, travelers should make sure that they will be able to manage their time correctly, and attend their online classes. Aside from this, they should keep their blogs active, so that they will be financially equipped in order to support their online college tuition. Nonetheless, it wouldn’t be easy for travel bloggers to enroll in online classes because they do not have stable jobs, but with eagerness, they could still achieve their goal to have a college diploma. They could find another source of income such as applying for different online jobs just to add a little for their online classes tuition.
Travelling is not just a simple hobby; it requires a lot of eagerness, desire, and passion. Others would be willing to give up the material things they have, but they should always remember that knowledge is one of the real wealth in life that they should not take for granted. In spite of their desire to visit different places in the world and acquire knowledge based on their experiences, it is also important to bear in mind that studying is necessary for continuous learning, and it is now easier for them through the emergence of online classes.
