While discussing the practical use of social media at a monthly meeting with other nonfiction writers, it was suggested that I monetize my blog.
It was also recommended that because Tuesdays with Laurie is high traffic, I should rent this space to others to use as a platform.
I explained that I actually pay an annual fee to keep advertisements off my blog and that I have no intention of being a mouthpiece for services or products.
After they pulled their eyebrows back down from their hairlines, it was clear I stood alone in my thinking.
I have no issues with monetized blogs. In fact, I applaud people who earn income from their posts. It just doesn’t happen to be what Tuesdays with Laurie is about.
When was the last time you stood alone?
