Growing up I wanted to be a lot of things, but mostly it boiled down to either being an artist or a writer. Since I failed two English classes in high school, my writing aspirations disappeared. Then in college, my art teacher ripped my work apart on more than a few occasions, so there went that career. I wanted to get into the Internet industry and somehow fell into graphic design instead… It wasn’t until much later that I found pieces of my all my dream jobs and to much of my surprise it came in blogging.
Dream often take round-about paths to reality. The lucky ones know what they want right away and work towards it, others take their time to explore their interests and talents. Some even find comfort in not pursuing dreams. Today on Mashable a survey revealed only 9% of people have achieved their childhood dream job. Of course then again, how many kids want to be a “Creative Director” when they grow up?
Whatever the case may be… what is your dream job? Is your blog helping you get it?
