Tip #6: Blogs are not the new Start-Ups (but dare to dream)

While there have been a few cases where a blog or website created and operated by one person or a very small group of people became instantly rich and famous (or richer and more famous) when a bigger company purchased them for a very significant amount, the chances of this happening to you (or me) are slim. That's a realistic view. However, that doesn't mean you won't or can't be very successful.

It is important to frame things and put them (and keep them) in perspective. Blogs are not the new start-ups, although it may feel that way with the waves and waves of blog-millionaire schemes and hopefuls out there.

Expecting to become a blog-millionaire just like you would hope to become a start-up millionaire is not realistic. And becoming a start-up millionaire is a low probability to begin with. The number of start-ups that don't make it out-numbers the ones that make it significantly. So you can imagine how much slimmer the chances are for a blog. And by blog I mean the blog being it, not a product or service that uses a blog as its outlet.

Having said all that however, it doesn't mean you don't hope and plan for big things and success. You most certainly do. And think big. Don't limit yourself or shoot yourself on the foot. Follow your insticts (at times) and try to get out of your comfort zone on occasion. Experiment. Explore. Dare to dream :)
