F*%& the blogs….

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?

ME!

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!

I had one with my middle finger up….but I censored myself 🙂

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.

  1. Very well said! I started blogging mainly to get my creative side going, and express them in words. To be honest, I didn’t even know bloggers made money doing what they do. I alwata figued thats what vlogging is for. I suspected blogs may get free items to review, but never money.
