When you’re going to get paid $200 for a couple of hours of work, I don’t think so, because that’s the absolute bare minimum requirement for being in the industry today.
The first step is that you have to have your own business. Then you have a choice between working on your own idea and working for someone like me and this whole industry, or you can work for whoever happens to have the best idea.
I’m a very particular sort of person. Most of the money I make from my day job comes from my freelance writing. I don’t have to have it booked, because I’ve done it for so long that I have the skills and the skillset to do it. I’d be just as happy working, or taking a few weeks off, as I am having a gig every month.
How do you rate your writing/blogging career at this point?
I guess it depends. People say my writing is amazing, and it’s true. But I don’t think that’s quite true. There are several things I could be doing on the web. I could be blogging regularly, or blogging for myself. Or, I could be doing something really different. I can be the biggest baddest dude on the face of the planet. (laughs) I’ve never been that, actually. (laughs)
So I won’t go there. But it sounds like on the blog, you’re probably working on your own stuff?
I don’t really do any of those things. I’m still trying to figure out how to do that. A lot of what’s out there does require some creativity. There are a lot of things that work for me on the web — I just don’t quite think that I have the time, or the energy, to devote to them. Most of the time I do freelance writing, I put it somewhere. I don’t even have a computer in my apartment. So I don’t write on a computer.
How do you decide what you’re going to do next? Your life or your work?
That’s another thing I’ve been looking for is just not giving a sh*t. People are constantly telling me that I have to change. I’m working on the fact that I don’t have to change my life. That is never going to happen, because I’m not going to change anything.
You’re a really unique person, I’d say, for this stage in your career.
