I could be preaching like a rap song, but honestly – don’t be chasing the paper, but be chasing that life in other words, do what you like, not what pays. If making money was your goal, then even a minimum wage job has more pay off. It took me an hour to jot down this post, and considering the quantity of posts I wish to write to get enough traffic for that $45, I could just work a 8 hour shift at McDonald’s at 10. 25 and make $82 easily.
Then again, if you actually need to make a career out of running a blog – and you don’t mind doing associate marketing and advertorials, I’m sure there’s additional cash somewhere in there.
