On why "follow your passion" is bad advice. I wish I could remember the tags I've used for this kind of thing before though.

The Online Photographer: Set Those Expectations Low
"Photography is a superb hobby, one of the best. It's when you try to make a living at it that it is so likely to resist you. I don't think other hobbies have this problem. I mean, consider, say, fly-fishing, or building plastic model planes. Very few people who do those things assume they're going to 'go pro' someday. Very few people try. It doesn't generally come up."

The Online Photographer: Open Mike: Hobbies and Interests
Lovely post on working out which pastimes you consistently enjoy, and what it is about them you love. "Free yourself of the ideas that don't actually fit you, even if they're 'supposed' to be central to the hobby."
