Why do you blog? There are so many reasons why people blog. Have you ever asked yourself that very same question. The reason for this post is really for me to get an idea as to why you blog. In particular I am interested if you think that blogging is a calling for you.

A calling is not merely a job or a profession, but often time it means your highest purpose on earth. Not everyone has a calling or is in a job or doing something that they believed they are called to do. Does this mean that everyone else is doomed to live a mediocre life of quiet desperation? Absolutely Not!
A calling is often used in terms of a vocation, an occupation that you are specifically drawn towards. Often associated with religious position like pastors or Sunday school teachers, or a humanitarian positions like doctors, nurses and teachers.
The question though is, can you put blogging into that same category? Is blogging a calling for you. Are you drawn to it? Is it a vocation?
Many have said that if you find your calling in life you will have a job but never work a day in your life.
Is there a difference between a calling and a career? Well there certainly is. Some points can be a bit vague and even apply to both sides, but there is a difference.
What is blogging to you? Is it a career or a calling? Is there a difference, yes! Is one better than the other. No. All it does is change your perspective on what and how you blog. For example, you can have passion for your blogging career, but the passion is different to someone that feels that they are called to blogging.
