How much are you earning from your Passion, Hobbies?
I had thought that hobbies were just for fun until I joined Steem blockchain back then in 2018. I love reading and writing. It's always a good time each time I can learn something new to add to my wealth of knowledge. Writing for me is what I do for the fun and passion. This is why I love writing about my experiences and things that are very visible around me. Funny that this is where I had the hardest hit during my high school days.
I remember when my English teacher then had to call me to her office out of concern and obliged to take me on extra writing lessons during break. I tell you, I was so poor at it even with penning an informal letter. I had literally hated English studies when I discovered I found it quite difficult to write. I had to give-up my hopes of being a lawyer the moment I was told that English Studies is a compulsory subject I had to pass.
Time passed and the stories changed. Those few days in my teacher's office doing some extra writing lessons while others played really paid-off. I remain indebted to that woman of value. Before I could know it, I had fun writing short piece till it became what I could do to earn a living even off the chain.
I had thought that socialmedia were just for fun until I joined Steem blockchain. My twitter and Facebook accounts would be 20 years soon, yer, I can't pen how much value I've drawn from there career and Finance wise. The fun there are just awesome but finally I discovered I had wasted a good part of my capital for business buying data just to fun with friends and earn valueless likes on my pix and texts.
Three years only here and it's been like 30 years. The learning is just as I would have taken a short course in Technology, Finance and Cryptocurrency. I must say, I've learnt a lot. The passion of learning is what drew me here to Hive and it became a place where my dreams got funded and incubated.
It's a great experience that I write about my daily experiences and it fetches me some good bucks that round to $5 to $10 dollars or more daily. More interesting is the fact that I hit my "like" button and there, I share $$ to friends and get some % back to my wallet at the end of 7 days.
Above is the Hivestats view of my sports curation account @uyobong.sports which literally contains my sports and fitness related contents. The social account has so grown over the years to be a multi Thousand dollar holding account where sports passion and hobbies are rewarded.
Taking the below screenshot, it was interesting to see how I earned as much as $5.34 yesterday for "liking sports contents posted on the Hive blockchain. By effect, the posts I voted on also earned $5.34. Having that value rounding over a month consistently would run into $160. That's 30% into my dream $500 monthly earning from my interests in sports.
If I tell you, I'm not really a sports fan, but I just love to read and enjoy the awesome stories that stem from that sector. I hit my "like" button to show I love the story and boom, I'm sharing cash in the process.
That's how far my passion for learning and writing hobby fetches me on Hive blockchain. I'll love to read yours too.
