The money question that got me thinking…..

A regular reader has been asking me why I do freelance personal finance writing since the pay is not as lucrative as my work as a Portfolio Manager or Investment Professor.

If the sites that hire you for freelance writing are paying x dollars for an article, and you make more money offline for that same hour my next logical question would be; Why do it?

 Here’s how I responded:

It’s certainly logical to wonder why I do freelance personal finance writing for what is clearly less money than I make “in my day jobs.”

Wow, this philosophical and practical question got me thinking.

I am passionate about sharing sound money solutions and wealth building strategies.

 My blogging goals are to educate others in personal finance, investing, and wealthy living. I have amassed plenty of wealth and want to share what has worked in my life along with tips and strategies for others.

Over time my blogging activities cost more time than initially expected, I want to be compensated for my on line efforts. I also seek to grow my readers so that more folks can learn to be financially successful. Teaching others personal finance strategies through freelance writing helps others and yields a bit of financial return for my work.

I like trying new activities and expanding my life options. Blogging is a perfect example of this preference.

If it was only about the money, I probably wouldn’t blog at all since the hourly rate of pay is low.

Do you participate in “work type” activities which provide personal satisfaction and low pay?
