Boring damned people. All over the earth. Propagating more boring damned people. What a horror show. The earth swarmed with them.- Charles Bukowski
Hey guys! I am pretty sure you guys have thought of this before or it may even be the reason you started your blog in the first place but I started writing in hopes of monetizing my blog. I wanted to be rolling in the dough! RICH! WEALTHY!
Now let me tell you the reasons that I don’t think that is what I am going to do anymore.
So, I have this concept in my mind: I don’t work for money. And I don’t. You see every job I ever had, I quit. I don’t regret it. Hell, half of the jobs that I quit I can’t half way remember it. So no love lost. However, I thought to myself that this would be a better way to “work”. I thought that I could share my ideas in a none judging way and get paid for it. Too bad I was wrong. How many of you thought that once you started your blog that all of the big dough was going to roll in?
To be honest, I haven’t been writing for long but I am exhausted because I am not receiving any money. I feel like money will never come my way and I am wasting my time even expressing myself. So I want to quit. Thats the right thing to do, right?
WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
I know many of you have searched the internet in search of: WAYS TO MAKE MONEY FROM BLOGGING.
But that is the absolute worst thing you could do. Because then you start ‘TRYING TO FIT IN TO A CROWD” or “MAKE YOURSELF MORE MARKETABLE”!
OR TALK ABOUT THE SAME OL GENERIC SHIT EVERYONE ELSE ON THE INTER-WEB IS DOING.
I encourage you to STOP! DELETE! DO NOT PASS GO! WRONG WRONG! UGH WRONG!
Listen, eff the money!
Do not let your expression become a job to you!
Do not express yourself for the money!
Do not let this release become another JOB that you hate!
Share at your own pace. Share what you truly want to. Share what you truly feel because honestly, all of that other shit is boring.
I want to hear YOU! I don’t want to hear clones of everyone else. I want want to read generic blog posts!
OMG, every single soul is different! That is what I crave! I crave the uniqueness! I want to hear about your flaws and mistakes. Your stupid choices and your bad days! That is what I want to read. Let me hear how much you sucked today! Express yourself! To the fullest! DO NOT CENSOR YOURSELF FOR THE MASSES! I IMPLORE YOU!
So, that is why I am here to say, I will not monetize my blog. Nor will I do any degrading BS that will make me feel pressured to make money! I am going to share my truth and hope that this touches someone!
I hope that it touches you.
