A few blog posts ago, I mentioned that one can turn some hobbies into a full-blown career. One hobby I think that could fall under that is writing.
I used to write for and then edit school or campus papers while I was in high school and then while at university. But before all that, I used to write my thoughts down in a diary since I was about 8 or 9 years old. I also loved writing letters to friends in another part of town and relatives who were based in another country. This was back then when all the letters were sent through snail mail. I never knew that something I just bode my time by was something that could lead me to helping out campus papers while at school. And when I finished university, all my job offers were on writing.
Now for those who have gone on to publish their own newspapers or publish their own blogs online, writing is a key part there. And those who have been trained in writing by taking a course or by experience can have great opportunities at hand. Those who have the need for writers can tap them and reach out to them. And this is so convenient now because this can be done online. For instance, if you have a writing need you can easily access a pool of writers online and get nothing less than a professional writing service. And I’ve even heard that even university students who struggle with their school paper work now access some writing help online. I am sure that being able to do so is much appreciated by them.
Writing is something then that one can enjoy doing and then work on improving. And when it is further taken to the next level after just being a hobby, it can serve not just the personal joy of the writer but it can also benefit many others.
