Get Paid for Reading My BLOG!
I know that you’re fascinated by web-log discussions of the agility world. Wouldn’t it be absolutely lovely to get paid for reading them? I’ll tell you the truth, I think I’ve figured out how you can make money while you explore every interesting thing I’ve had to say over the past few years.
I had this figured in the very early days of the Clean Run magazine when it was a stapled-together Xerographic thing that I mailed out to dog agility training instructors around the country (I had something like 80 subscribers in the first year). In those days I was a technical writer / job-shopper. That means I worked on a consultation and project basis. I might work at one place for four months or for more than a year. When the project was done, I’d move on to the next. Clearly I’ve never been frantic about “losing my job” because that was all a part of the process. I’d just go across the street and start the next job. Anyhow… I drift.
One of the jobs I had while publishing Clean Run magazine was at Intel. I’d get there in the morning, and write my entire training plan for the week. Paste it up and make a master copy on the Intel Xerox. Later I’d have it taken down to Staples to make the distribution copies; then staple them all up and get them in the mail.
You see don’t you? I wrote the magazine while I was at work. That means I was getting paid a professional salary for doing it.
