My problem is really trying to find something I'm interested in, and having proof that I know what I'm talking about when I write about it. I'm a younger person, I do have skills, but I've grown up learning things kinda forced on me as work required. I grew up on a farm. I was taught that we must work. So I learned skills that let me work, but nothing I was really passionate about. I have always wanted to learn german. I used to know enough to speak with friends as I grew up, but it's been a while since I have used it and have almost all but forgot it.
So check out this idea, it might be a solution to my problem. Say I start a blog that is all about me learning how to speak german. as I learn the language, I teach my readers what I'm learning. So they learn and get value from my blog. This way I actually don't need to have proof that I know what I'm talking about, because obviously my readers know I'm learning myself.
Now to monetize, I can use adsense, amazon to promote books about how to speak german, and donations.
Now I also need to learn to speak quebec french because being in the Canadian Military it will be something I eventually have to learn if I want to rank up faster. So I could do german or french.
BUt how does this sound. It might also help any of you out there who are having the same problem as me. You don't really have any skills you are passionate to write about. So why not pick a skill you have always wanted to learn, and write about it as you learn it, providing value that you can monetize.
Let me know what you guys think?
