In the recent news, I saw this headline  “Spanish unemployment hits almost 23%”

“(Financial Times) — The number of Spaniards without jobs rose by more than half a million last year to reach 5.27m, or 22.85 per cent of the workforce, in the final quarter, according to the National Statistics Institute (INE).

There are many people in this world that who are dependent on their working income. If economy is bad, they lose their jobs and lose their working income. To many people, that is their primary income. They are at a loss when they lose their primary income.

Would You Have Hoped that You Have Another Stream of Income During Crisis
It is time to start another stream of income. Blogging is one good stream where you can gather your income.

Blog comes from the term “web log” which is a digital diary that you put online. With this digital diary you can put up a lot of original content that the rest of the world can find. You can place products that are useful and beneficial to a people. When these people go to your digital diary (blog), they see your products and they need them,  they will buy from you. That is where you earn your income.

I have seen people who have lost their jobs and managed to gain back their life (or even better) through the income derived from the internet (via blogging).

Some of the gurus whom have managed to establish their internet presence are as follows:

Pat Flynn (http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/)
Pat lost his job as an architect and decided to start an Internet business. His blog was initially set up as a website to store his notes while studying a special type of architecture qualification called the LEED exam. The blog started receiving lots of traffic because of his LEED notes. Some of Pat’s readers emailed him and suggested he create a book on how to pass the exam, which he did simply by compiling his blog posts together in a sequence.Pat published his ebook and made thousands in his first month. Presently he is earning in the 6 figure to 7 figure type of income per year.

Pat is one of the internet bloggers that I follow. I am inspired by his truthfulness and his generosity in sharing his experiences and showing people the detailed steps in deriving passive income from the internet.
