So, WordPress.com sent me an email today. They’re offering 50% off their paid plans…
Would I benefit from getting a paid plan with the extra buzzers and whistles? I’ve covered this ground before, but the difference now is that 50% thing. I would probably enjoy having more settings to tweak. It might be kinda cool having my own domain name. I dunno. I guess I need to figure out what the fun is worth, huh?
Then there’s that Going Pro thing. I could monetize my site and maybe make a buck or two. I could set up a donation button. That might be a thrilling experience – getting paid because people come to my site to read my content.
I’m a realist, so I have no illusions about making a living. It would be interesting, though, to see if I could generate enough funds to have the site pay for itself.
And I could be a professional blogger even if I only made a couple of bucks. Think about it. By the simplest terms, being a professional means getting paid to do something. It doesn’t mean making a profit, heh 😛
Tell me what y’all think.
Type to you later…
