IT’S 3 AM

I’m still obsessed with making money online. I paused my Etsy shop and created a new one here, on this site. There’s a link on the menu. The site is also optimized for Google Adsense, and ads keep coming up. I am on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter and some viewers come along now and […]

OUTLINE OF PANEL 13

This should be the main purpose of this blog: sharing the development of CHRONOS. My concern with posting daily makes me digress. Maybe sticking to the basics might assure such rhythm. One post with the pencil sketch, the next with the outline and the last with the panel done. Will this become too repetitive and […]

BLOGGING PROPERLY

I wish I knew how to blog properly. I am talking about making money with it, obviously. As far as I can tell, there are two major kinds of blogs: the How To blogs and the Look At Me blogs. Both can promote services. Internet gurus say money is on the first kind of blogs, […]

Blogging: I finally see the light!

My aim with blogging is to earn money doing what I love – writing, drawing and music composition. Though I make commissions for illustrations, I am, most of all, an author and I have the wild fantasy of finding an audience vast enough for cashing in. Yesterday I saw the light! A BLOG PLATFORM IS […]

I Can’t Sell A Damn Thing, And I’m Not Sure If I Want To

I’m really not good at this. Commerce is not my thing. The blog and the Etsy shop are only a desperate attempt to find an alternative to my soon to be abandoned job. I’ve been doing my best to leave in style, that is, without a gap between sources of income, but that is not […]

I Need To Kill My Self-Censorship

Strangely enough, it is for the purpose of making money. To increase the number of visitors to my Etsy shop this blog must become entertaining. I am not tailed for businesses. The shop is a financial necessity, as it is with most of the jobs. This blog is part of a strategy to increase traffic […]

No More Ads

I started this blog to earn money. I tried exclusive content, affiliation and ads. These are things only possible with something I’ll never have. An audience of thousands. Therefore, the financial purpose left for this blog is to captivate possible customers for my Etsy shop. I will keep the possibility for Patreon style donations whilst […]

Commissioned Articles

Today I sent emails to a few brands of art materials proposing to write articles about their products in this blog. Will they answer me? Will they answer yes? I believe my blog is interesting to both artists and art lovers, who would benefit from this sort of explanatory publicity. As for myself, I find […]

Insoluble

“Your situation is insoluble”, they told me yesterday, meaning I have to decide whether to get back to the job that burned me out or taking an unpaid leave. Things would be much easier if there were jobs to apply to. With this Covid-19 situation one can’t even flip burgers. I’ve been investing my time […]

A Blog Is Built (Perhaps!)

I think I’ve done it! It even has a page for readers to buy PDF files! I allocated widgets for WordAds and became an Amazon affiliate. Readers can also find a PayPal button to financial contributions to the blog. Now the thing is to bring traffic for the monetization through ads and sells. The word […]
