I've been blogging for a while now, most importantly, I've tried other jobs as well so i I've been able to make a good comparison. I must not forget to thank Elijah RONA of BasicNaijaNeeds.com for sending this topic in. I also made a few modifications as well.
5 Reasons Why blogging is better
Here are a few (of the thousand) advantages of blogging over other jobs

Blogging is about passion and what you like.
