After a long time not accepting money for a blog post, I caved and did one. I am reminded how easy it is to earn money in this industry at the right time.
I procrastinated all weekend, agonizing how to write the article. I was given free reign — just add the specific keyword and link. In the end, I did what came easiest: write my thoughts on being in between trips.
It sounds natural and personal. Not hardsell at all. I’m torn between feeling iffy about this (though I do have a prominent disclaimer at the top), and amazed at how relatively easy it was to earn that amount.
I read somewhere that sometimes you have to do things that you don’t like to earn money, yet it’s also not good to continue being miserable doing a job you hate. Is one exclusive to the other or is it possible to strike a balance?
