First of all, please don’t banish me from the blogosphere for writing this article, but I really think that the idea of passionate guest blogging is greatly overrated.
I know that every – and I do mean every – blog about blogging tells you that the first mandatory trait you need in order to succeed is passion towards the thing you’re writing about, but I beg to differ.
And it’s not that I have anything against passion, per se. On the contrary, I’m actually passionate about guest blogging and the possibility to have my work published all over the web. But there’s just one detail that doesn’t fit in the general scheme of things, and it’s this: passion is not the only element that drives us through most of the activities we do in life.
