In the old days, a dream job was veterinarian, journalist or flight assistant. Today there are new dream jobs and one of them is BLOGGER. We have asked ourselves what kinds of jobs successful bloggers had before they decided for a life in front of the camera and laptop. Well advised are in any case those who have completed training in a solid profession, gotten a university degree or finished an apprenticeship, because who knows what will happen in the social web in the coming 5 years. And really, just take a look at the profiles of a few special blogger personalities and find out that they have precisely been on career paths like that.
MERNA MARIELLA FROM THE LAW FIRM TO BEAUTY BLOGGER
Let’s take the wonderful Merna Mariella, for example, she operates a successful and well established beauty blog today. In her _About You Text_ you can find out that she successfully completed an apprenticeship as legal assistant and has always dreamed about blogging for a living. In January 2016, she then decided finally to dare make this move. We think that this step was exactly the right one, because she operates her blog with great passion and she is a source of inspiration when it comes to beauty and fashion.

ANDRÉ VAN BOSSEN, BUSINESS AND FASHION COMBINED
And what is it like for male bloggers? This is how we came across André van Bossen on Instagram. His profile is a little different, he designs his Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/vanbossen/ very creatively and authentically, has a great picture language and a cool style, but he does not run his own blog. What we found thrilling is that he writes as an author for the career blog of Peek & Cloppenburg. He shares his start into professional life at P&C with his readers and reports about his remarkable career _From Temp to Junior Trainee_. This type of blogging appealed to us very much because it is about a fashion enterprise as employer told from the perspective of an Instagram user during his professional training.
BLOGGER SUPERSTAR: OHHCOUTURE
By far the leader as the best case is Leonie Hanne with her blog http://www.ohhcouture.com. As a former strategy adviser at the Otto Group, she dared a drastic change and became one of Europe’s most successful bloggers today.
And the moral of the story is? Blogger has not only become a dream job but it is also by now recognised as a full-time occupation.
