First Draft is a blog that has stayed pretty on top of things there, and has been helping organize people to work on fixing what can be fixed. I feel bad because I cannot afford to give much or do much, my wife and I make slightly less than we need to break even — it’s only a hundred or so dollars of deficit every month, but that hurts and needs to change if we’re going to plan any kind of life.
I’m basically feeling pretty worn-out and useless right now, as if there is nothing really more I can say here and I am recognizing it cannot be a way to earn a living. I need to do something to help us, I cannot only help others, but I feel like I am turning my back in some way. And I’m not really helping anyone else anymore either, I’ve done what I can and said what I needed to say. Saying more then becomes nothing but vanity.
I may just take a break from all this and do something else. I hope I did some good.
You talked about blogging for a few bucks. You can write articles at A.C. and make around $5-$10 per article accepted. They accept all of mine. I hear you can make more for exclusive; and you write what you want, within certain parameters.
Looks interesting, though I’m not sure my writing would be the best fit for them. I could write about something other than music and cannabis, but writing what you know and what you can directly experience while you describe it is something that leads to a better result for me. In truth, until this cannabis prohibition is ended, it is part of how we are expected to be “reformed.” There is supposed to be an economic penalty imposed upon those like me, especially those who openly speak about it.
And so I take that, and understand it, and maybe I will try to write on a different subject altogether under my own name and without connection to this blog.
