If you started earn more than in your normal job and you've have no time for develop your blog.

The most important thing: do you like blogging more than your regular work? If answer is yes. You should leave normal job, and focus on blog. But remeber, there are lot of variables that affect popularity of the blog. You should first thing you should think about what you'll do (for example) you lose part of your audience or web-traffic. What if google search alghoritm would change, and you will lose best positions in google. What than? The best combination in my opinion is to work part-time and running a blog

It's quite a hard question to answer. Because, it's all depend on your situation. Not only me, but everyone would say, don't quit your permanent job.
But only you know your situation and you are the finaliser of this question.
My permanent or temporary or part-time job, everything is blogging. And I happy to continue with that..

Blogging can be used as part time job instead. Need a permanent job cause earning from ads revenue from blogging is not a reliable source of income

If blogging is bringing you the right amount of money then why not? Or just work and blog till you make enough money.

It would not suggest you to quit your job for being a good blogger insted once you turn into a good and established blogger then quit your job. I am saying this becasuse blogging is highly volatile.

Try not to quit your permanent job at least in the beginning. It's risky to quit it right at the beginning, when you are still not sure where you are headed with your blog. I believe you can handle both quite well for a while. When things pick up a pace with your blog and you have a steady income, then quit your day job, why not.

If my blog/site was bringing in a good income steadily then I might quit my job and work on the blog.

But if you're just starting your blog and don't have enough income from it at the moment then I suggest you keep your permanent job.

I still do side work as my websites don't make enough to live on right now.

It's always good to have some backup income and not rely on your websites only unless they're doing really,really great.

The key is income and savings. If your blogging income is the same or better than your permanent job and you have enough savings to probably cover 6mos of expenses, then you could consider it. Otherwise, wait until you do. I believe this to be the safest route.

I don't think it will be wise decision.
You should not quit your permanent job for being a blogger

I have to agree with those talking about how it's a situational thing. I have friends who have quit their jobs because their blog is making 20k per month after taxes. Once you hit a certain point with your website, it's smart to hire on other people.

I would need to know what you do for a living first and what is your educational background.

Like...if you are working at a 7-11 and getting $12-$15 an hour...but your website requires your full attention and makes 4 times that...then I would say you should be fine quitting your job.

If you are in a specific field though...say Supply Chain or Technology...where software evolves, job descriptions evolve with the times...then if you quit your job, and your blog fails two years from now...you might find it harder to get another job because you have fallen behind. Two years might not seem like a lot but in certain worlds it can literally be a lifetime.

I guess what I am trying to say is that we don't have enough information to make that decision...in my case there is no way I could quit my job right now. I work to support my sites lol.

Really a different question, simple answer is that it is based on ones condition, requirements, needs, expenses and income. If someone is a student, he did not need a job if he is a good blogger, but if someone who is married and Burdon of his family he may start blog with job, but in my view it is pertain to the needs of a person, but for me, permanent job is preferable, blog is good but as a part time. We are curious to earn money so after our job if wanted to increase income then we start blog.
Blog is a part time job.

I never ever suggest leaving your job for being a blogger. To be precise, Blogging never provides you a consistent income and you cannot plan your income. More over, Blogging part time is the best job I can tell. So go for part time job over full time. This is my answer from 2 years experience.

If your site gets hit with a new google update then bye bye to income

Hi Dear, Permanent job is best because Blogging is not same for all time. Some time you lose your traffic then how you will earn money. So Its my advise do permanent job and work online part time. I think only 2-3 hours are enough for blogging.

If your blog is making enough money required for living, then Yes leave the Job and make your blog one of the best. But if it's not making enough money then don't quit the job until your blog makes more money then your main job.

You can earn enough money from blogging but then you have to a expert and experienced. It's passive income so I prefer it. It'll ''permanent job or not'' is an important question. Guys, If you are an experienced blogger then I think it'll be a permanent job for you but then you have to work in a continuous way for it's development.

both in my perspective. Do part-time blogging and continue with your permanent job.
