It was a contrast to my previous post, where I used the adage "do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life"
The contrast was the analogy that you may love going to the pub, but once you put a customer in the equation, it may not be the same experience. As another, I love sailing. If I had to show up because customers were expecting me to take them sailing, it would be very different.
Internet blogs, etc, are taking the customer intimacy, which is emotionally draining work, out of the equation. You're not expected at a particular time, you have the anonymity of the internet to type, it doesn't matter if you're presentable today or in a good mood, or tired. The customer may not know. As a result, it would seem being less financially rewarding makes sense.
