Can Anyone Make A Living Blogging?

Part 3 – What Is A Dot Com Lifestyle?

Warning: Do not quit you job right after reading this article. Do quit once your entrepreneurship starts making more money than your 9 – 5 paycheque .

What Is a Dot Com Lifestyle?

Dot com lifestyle is not about what it sounds like, as you will find out reading the following links. Dot com lifestyle is not about making truck loads of money, driving over-priced cars, eating out everyday at fine restaurants, and visiting a new country every week. While you may be able to achieve some of these I just mentioned, most of the bloggers (or Internet entrepreneurs) have decided to live a simple family-oriented life, just like you and I. However, they have something which we don’t have. They are living on their own terms and they have ridiculously flexible lifestyle choices. What I think of the dot com lifestyle? These are what come to my mind and keep me motivated all the time:

  • Work two hours a day and five days a week
  • Live in a new country for every six months a year (if you have a family, make it two to four months)
  • The whole world is your office (you can work anywhere as long as you have your laptop and internet connection)
  • Live on your own terms
  • Have ridiculously flexible lifestyle choices

Now, let’s look at the dot com lifestyle of some actual people who are already living it:

John Chow – A Canadian Blogger residing in Richmond, BC

The Dot Com Lifestyle

Nick Ramsay – Lives in Japan with his wife and one child. Her Japanese wife picked up one English phrase very quickly: “I am not your maid!”

My Dot Com Lifestyle in Japan

Bob Buskirk – A 21 year old Internet entrepreneur living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And yes, there are even 18 year olds and younger living a dot com lifestyle as well.

Living the Dot Com Lifestyle

Steve Pavlina – Personal Development Guru. His website gets more than 2 million visitors per month. This article is little different than those mentioned above.

    I find that working at home full time means that I can spend time with my children and take time off whenever there is an emergency or we want to go out somewhere. However it does have its disadvantages – no stable income, working all hours that I can and when I want a holiday, I do not get paid.

    Hey Rachel, thanks for your comment. Yes, working at home has its advantages and disadvantages depending on what you do at home. If you are an Internet entrepreneur, you will always be making money regardless where you are. John Chow is in China for 3 weeks and he is still making the same money. Yaro Starak is in Toronto (far away from home) and he is still making money…

    It’s great to see it can be done. Thanks for highlighting some who have made it happen. Your disclaimer about leaving work is especially important as too many people read the press clippings and don’t realize that there’s hours and hours of hard work behind everyone that’s become a success. Persistence and consistence are the keys here just like in any pursuit!
