Farewell and Godspeed
Hi, everyone. Hope you are doing well and staying safe from COVID nasties!
My W.A. account renews on Black Friday, but I've decided to not continue. I, unfortunately, am 3 years into my website and still can't say I've earned more than $100, tho' I've written over 300,000 words and have a loyal following.
From what I can tell, my lack of monetization is coming from the fact that musicians are typically not financially well-off, so they don't use my affiliate links.
I'm certainly not going to throw away my many, many posts on seriousgasdotcom though, and accompanying YouTube channel. There's years of my life there!!
Instead, I'm going to a cheaper $100 a year hosting platform that will allow me to not LOSE as much money every year 'til I can figure out a way to earn through my efforts.
I'm halfway through writing my first eBook. I hope to finish that by mid-December and then start selling my OWN product online, which will give recording musicians great value and instruction. Here's hoping it makes all the difference.
Thanks to W.A. and all of Kyle's fine instruction that got me up and going in ONE MONTH.
Also, big shout out to NinJAY and his continuing efforts to weekly teach us the hundreds of facets of this industry. Definitely a highlight of what W.A. offers.
A big lesson I've learned is you won't always succeed quickly. If you're committed to something, it won't matter though. Don't get into this as a fad, or a get-rich-quick scheme - do this because you KNOW you'll be good at it and you KNOW you can enrich the world with what you can offer.
I'll stil be working hard now, for the rest of my life, on my site. Leaving is just my way of being financially sound and rolling with the changes.
May you all succeed much quicker than I will. You'll do so by never... giving... up.
Best of success to you all from all your efforts!!
