Technology is increasing the variety of jobs available for people. Something that we see as very positive, even if it does sometimes mean explaining what a Social Media Expert or a Professional Blogger is to our parents.

A love of writing, a love of creativity, a love of sharing (and sometimes accidentally over-sharing). It is a job that usually starts as a hobby and turns into a job. It has a lot of positive points- it is creative, you get to manage your own time … But it can also be very hard to make money blogging. We have spoken to the lovely Laura Dawson about what it is like to blog professionally.
