  2. I would say that my passion about the zoo is pretty obvious. I love that it provides people with the opportunity to see, interact, and help preserve species that otherwise, most people would never get a change to enjoy.

  3. I'm really passionate about film and how it's made. I love talking to people about it and learning as much as I can. I'm still very new to the medium so there is a lot for me to discover.

  4. My passion in blogging, for my current blog, is showing people what greek life is all about. I love the fact that through blogging, I am able to show all the positive things that come out of greek life, but are not normally seen in the public eye. Through blogging, I feel passionate because I have the chance to change the way others think about greek life.

  5. I am passionate about blogging stories about life lessons through the eyes of kindergarteners because of how honest and opinionated they are. I grew up with a lot of young cousins so I love kids and since my mom is a kindergarten teacher I always visit her class and hear all their funny stories. I think blogging is a great and quick way to share little moments that brighten my day and that will hopefully brighten someone else's day as well.

  6. I am passionate about cooking. Growing up, my best memories were in the kitchen and the dinner table with my family. Blogging is a great way of showing different types of recipes that are out there and expanding people's mind to try new things.

  7. My love for coffee is a real passion! I love the vibes you get from the different shops, and the personality each shop carries overall. I have chosen this topic in many of my journalism classes, so I guess its just fits for me to blog about it.

  9. You've asked for a comment.

    The notion that if you are not passionate about your blog's message, don't start a blog is ridiculous. There are things in life more important in the world than one man espousing on his passions.

    Though I love writing, learning, questioning authority and seeking the truth... I will never delude myself into believing that my blog is necessarily important, nor do I want to seek a career in self publishing on the internet. I am not a delusional mark... Which seems to be Milligan's target audience. And I have no desire to sell people ads for a living under the guise of writing for their entertainment.

    Reading further into Jonathan Milligan's work, he appears to be a self help con-man who has succeeded in making a living conning the rubes by telling them what they want to hear. Namely, that they viably can, and also should seek to make a living creating blogs. It's almost ingenious. Back around the turn of the millennium came a misguided notion that a blog is as important as a newspaper, or a book. I mean, then there were many blogs that people sought out and started following on the internet. Then came the hordes. Hand over foot people rushed in, wanting to believe that blogs were a viable business model. So the world started blogging. Then useless blogs flooded the skies with enough chitterchattering data to block out the sun. The value of information and human communication reached an all time low due to the deafening white noise blare of virtually every single person in America having a Facebook, and therefor a personal blog. All the tweets, texts, posts, blogs, tumblrs, vlogs, they have devolved all debate in our culture into a cacophony of babble.

  10. I am passionate about a lot of things. My blog is a variety of things I love and interest me. I feel like it it easier to blog about things you like so it makes the process alot easier. I love to experience new things and learn about them so blogging is great way to express and tell others!

  11. My passion for my blog is quite simply the things I'm passionate about. That may sound redundant but what I want from my blog is to relate the things that I'm into to others. I get a big kick out of introducing people to new things and getting their reaction good or bad.

  12. My passion for photography is the reason I started a blog in the first place. It gives me a place to showcase my work and post things I find interesting, even if no one else reads it.

  13. I am very passionate about two things, photography, and helping people. I think that this blog will be a great opportunity for me to do both of these things. It will give me a chance to do some photography and talk to the homeless and hopefully shed some light on their day.

  14. I feel like I have too many passions. My blog has a central theme, however, it will have a little bit of everything.

  15. (I know this is late) but my passion in blogging is fashion mostly, as fashion blogs can keep me entertained for hours. I love all the colors, styles, designs, labels, and different ways they are represented.
