Beyonce, Michael Arrington And F*ck You Money (or Blogging:What’s In It For You)
Let talk money.
For some reason the topic seems to bother people. They don't want to be seen as making too much or little.
The reason I bring it up is because of an interesting post
Beyonce Tyme posted on her website.
That, as my streetwise friends would say, is "fuck you money". (meaning if anybody asks you to do something you can afford to say "Fuck You!")
Now this blog is ffaarr from making me "fuck you" money.
I don't run ads and this blog generates income directly only from consulting. It has generated me almost 5 figures since January so I really can't complain but I really would like some of that Arrington cheese.
But this blog has been valuable in many more ways you can't really put a price on.
I get to communicate with some really smart people.
I get emails and calls all the time from folks doing some really cool stuff.
I have my fingerprints on many interesting (and hopefully profitable) projects. They range from a simple video sex project my brother is testing in California to stuff involving music, education, stocks and ARGs.
I have loss many consulting gigs because my price is too high (note: I won't lower it, don't ask!) and turned down many opportunities because I'm just too busy.
But I'm just like you.
I don't blog for the money.
I blog to make fun of David Krug.advertising, beyonce, blogging, blogs, chartreuse (beta), cool, cursing, David Krug, Michael Arrington, money, techcrunch, Tyme White, video, YouTube
