THINKING OUT LOUD ABOUT PERSONAPAPER
I joined here July 26 and have written 18 posts and must admit I am sort of disappointed by the lack of response/reaction.
I am also concerned about not being allowed to repost some of my work on sites that people who come here wouldn't go to such as gays.com or broadwayshowbiz.com where I get compensated for my articles/reviews and can't post them here if I post them there.
And yes there is that other site where I can write and have made $32.89 for the month of August so far while I have made 54 cents here over a bit longer time. Yes it has been a mess and they have had and have problems and the question of how much longer can they last is always being asked.
I love to write and until that and this site I never thought of getting paid fo blogging. I do get paid for my reviews of touring Broadway shows and I do get paid--$60 an article for the gays.com magazine columns I write but even if I didn't get compensated I would still be writing those reviews and articles.
I have written, so far, a 7 part series on being gay and I appreciate those who have responded but I have to wonder if that is not an interesting topic for personapaper readers. I also write original posts on many nongay topics with, again, little response.
I really appreciate Will and MaeLou for their help--their quick responses to questions and their willing to listen to their writers.
At the moment I am writing for 8 different web sites and maybe taking this on is spreading myself too thin or maybe I am frustrated in not finding what people want to read about here.
Am I ready to give up? NO! I think though I may back off and not post EVERY day but will do some more reading and see what people are responding to. I know I am not interested in recipes or reviews of products or news items that are old news by the time they show up as a post just as I know some people aren't interested in reading movie reviews.
It might help me if you would tell me what YOU are interested in reading.
Thanks for listening/reading my 'what am I going to do post' and hopefully more than 3 people will respond :O)
