Blogging in itself is not passive. It takes a lot of constant work, writing and relationship building in order to create a successful blog.
Although a blog isn’t passive in nature, it’s one of the best platforms for launching other passive income opportunities.
Once you hit that publish button, it’s forever there for new visitors to see – tomorrow, next week, or even years from now.
Each blog post is an opportunity to strengthen the relationship you have with your existing audience, prove your authority and gain trust in your niche and grow your audience, and if you do eventually sell something, or if there are affiliate opportunities within those posts, you are planting passive income seeds that could make you money, passively, for a very long time.
I still have blog posts that I’ve written over 4 or 5 years ago that are still producing an income for me.
