Let me tell you about my experience as a full-time professional blogger and how I keep this online magazine operating in the black. Now this is my experience. I’m not saying you will have the same experience or a worse experience or a better experience. Keep that in mind…
First of all we’re talking about money. I make my money from the subscriptions people take out on this blog to Mr. Skin/Naked News. I get 60% of the take. So far this year I’ve covered all my expenses for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette and now I’m around $10.00 in the black.
Yes, I said $10.00 in the black. Not much, huh? There is now $48.00 in my Mr. Skin/Naked News account and as soon as my account hits or goes over $50.00 another check will be released to me.
And what were my expenses for this year?
Daily Backup: $40.00
Four Submissions: $100.00
So far this year Mr. Skin/Naked News has sent me $250.00 in three checks and some kind soul made me a donation of $25.00 for a total of $275.00 in revenue. In other words, if it wasn’t for that $25.00 donation this magazine would not be operating in the black. It would be operating in the red. If I was not retired with a very modest but secure income of social security and two pensions I would starve to death and be homeless as a full-time professional blogger. Why do I continue to blog? I blog because I have a passion for blogging and I don’t have to work for a living. And who knows. There’s always the hope that one day the net profit for one year for this magazine will be a few hundred dollars…
