I make one post about financial stress, and instantly get three follows from bloggers all of whom want to teach me how to make money blogging. Really? Insert giant eye roll here.
I’m always disappointed when I realize whoever has just followed me is of that ilk. I want actual readers, not someone who’s trying to sell me a magic money pill. Much as I wish those existed, they don’t. I’m not impervious to dreams… I love the idea that I could someday make money writing. But blogging? That seems fairly far-fetched. I write here for release… because I love to write and blogging brings me joy. Please don’t sully that trying to sell me on the notion of blogging as a get-rich-quick scheme.
I’m not buying.
