It’s been an interesting night, what with my friend ceasing her employment at my current freelance job due to some logical reasons that I generally agree with, my worrying about how to pay for graduate school because I don’t have rich parents to offload thousands of dollars onto me, and my considering the various ways in which I can earn money without having to work at Taco Bell, which results in my spending time searching for freelance jobs that don’t have to do with business or finance and other such things.
With that in mind, I’ll see where it goes. I’m fiddling with a site called Blogvertise and some other sites. The interesting thing I’ve always found rather humorous about the whole hubbub regarding these sorts of places is that there seems to be a lot of assumption that one has to essentially turn into an advertising Muppet. “Here’s the website, it’s nifty cool, yippee pandering advertising nonsense.” I don’t understand that. I don’t intend to take things that have subjects completely uninteresting to my readers, nor do I intend to address Blogvertise subjects any different that I would anything else. If I get offered a slot for something I find repugnant, I’m going to say that. Why not? Technically speaking almost any kind of publicity is good publicity; it’s simply a matter of opinion, I suppose.
So, this is the development around these parts. Don’t worry. Regular content will be, well, as always. I don’t even think this thing will go anywhere, as I suspect the majority of the stuff will be completely unrelated. And you’ll all know when something has been paid for by the evil man. And you’ll know when I’m being honest, because something you’d expect me to hate will be, well, hated.
And of course, if a lot of you have a visceral reaction to all this, I’ll drop it like a diseased hat. But I promise you that WISB will always be WISB. Period. It’ll never cease it’s WISBiness, even if I have the occasional post that I happened to earn $5.00 on (and I do mean occasional; WISB is a personal venture, but I’d like to try some new things, just for the hell of it, and I see no reason why I can’t earn a little bit of money off this place if all I’m doing is being WISBy).
And that is that.
