In order to create a successful blog you should blog on a topic that your are passionate about. This is the most common advice that many of us learned when we started blogging. But, the people who give this advice often fail to define what passion really means.
If you thought that passion is the same as what you enjoy doing then you are sure to fail with your blog. Passion is more than what you enjoy doing. Let’s take an example to illustrate this point. Let’s assume that you have a great love for travel and you like to go often on vacations. Does this mean that you are passionate about travelling? Not always! If you enjoy travelling, you will go on a vacation, have a great time and come back home. Your enjoyment and excitement stops once you are back home. This means you are not really passionate about travelling but rather enjoy travelling.
