Blogging full-time doesn’t have to be the goal.
In the blogging world, there’s a common misconception floating around: you’re only successful if you’re blogging full-time.
I’m Caitlin, and for a long time, I bought into this myth. There was even a time I tried to go full-time (I was unemployed and prioritized my blog over job hunting), but I actually hated it.
You know what I love? Working with other people. Having people to share a goal with. Consistent paychecks.
I applaud people who blog full-time, and I’m so happy that they found success doing what they love. But I know that it’s not for me. The only problem? There isn’t content out there for people like me, who want to blog as a side-hustle but are still focused on growing their career.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands. At And Possibly Dinosaurs, I embrace the fact that you can love your job and love your blog; you don’t have to choose one over the other.
Whether you need a creative outlet, a side hustle to pay off your student loans, or want to grow your skills to boost your resume, I’m here to support you.
