Wonder what to do. 1 14 15.

Good day or evening my friends. How is everyone? I hope you are doing well. I an OK. but a bit cold as it is nineteen F outside. Today I am contemplating something. You see I love writing. And I do not like to be restricted about what or how I write. I am sure maybe of you feel the same way. But the thing is, I would not mind making some money doing it! We all need some extra money. So here's the deal. I have written for money before on some sites and even my own blog. But in order to do this I have to bow to the almighty Google and pump out what and how the site owners want it! I really hate that! It makes writing just another job. So the question is should I sell out to some but write in places like this occasionally? Or should I listen to my heart and just follow my passion? I could use the extra money, but I have retired and don't want just another job. I don't know. I realize you cannot tell me what to do, but what is your opinion? To work or write. Which should I do?

I would do what makes you happy. Or maybe write your own book.

work to keep a steady income in until your writing earns you enough to take over as your main line of work or you will get very poor indeed

I think you are right! I like the book idea! Thanx for the suggestion.

Good advice! I think I may take wolfgirls suggestion. But I may need to compromise in the meanwhile.

caretakerray Do what you really want to do, follow your passion, I think it works better than just writing for sites where you feel your are limited and can't really enjoy writing.

Thank you for your opinion! You are right all successful people follow their passion.

I agree with some comments keep it steady until it brings enough to be yiur main work.

If you don't already, keep a spreadsheet of your daily earning at the various sites you write for. I've just started doing it. I'm depressed.
