Well, that blows!
Only $100 a month?
OK fine, you got me. $100 may not be all that much to a lot of folks, but if you’ve ever suffered a serious financial crisis in your life, then you know how it is. EVERY. PENNY. COUNTS!
I know because I have! Counted pennies, yeah…
But really, think about this.
The idea of traditional blogging can be daunting for many people because this is often more than just writing great content. In fact, I spend more time promoting my blog posts, creating multiple graphics for every single post so that it doesn’t look like I’m spamming when I Pin the same post over and over, thinking of new strategies to get more traffic on my blog, thinking us topics that my ideal readers would love to read, wondering what kind of freebies my readers can use right away, yada yada yada… the list is basically endless.
Actual writing? I do that for about 4-5 hours a week (for this blog). And that’s about it.
But you see, I love writing. And not just writing about “how to start a blog” or “which blogging platform is the best for new bloggers”, but I like to write about a whole bunch of other stuff!
So, what does someone like me do? Start 17 different blogs? Trust me, I’ve tried. And I’ve failed.
But then Medium came along and solved all my problems.
