IT’S 3 AM

I’m still obsessed with making money online. I paused my Etsy shop and created a new one here, on this site. There’s a link on the menu.

The site is also optimized for Google Adsense, and ads keep coming up. I am on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter and some viewers come along now and then, but far from being enough. None of them turned into a customer for my services as an illustrator nor purchased something from my store. The only useful page in this site has been the Portfolio, which link I send to potential customers from the Zaask freelance platform. They like my work and make business with me.

I have some regular readers from the WordPress community. That feeds the ego when they’re sincere, but it means nothing for my pockets.

I’m considering giving up any expectations of making money through blogging. I will focus on sharing CHRONOS and hope for nothing in return. Money is to be found somewhere else.

Blogging: I finally see the light!

My aim with blogging is to earn money doing what I love – writing, drawing and music composition. Though I make commissions for illustrations, I am, most of all, an author and I have the wild fantasy of finding an audience vast enough for cashing in. Yesterday I saw the light!

A BLOG PLATFORM IS THE SAME OF A DAMN SOCIAL NETWORK!

I am so dumb! Everyone knows that except this dimwit. No wonder my traffic is nil. I just posted, daily, made the all SEO stuff with the tags and what not, shared the content everywhere, appreciated the posts of some bloggers here and there, and that was it. ONLY NOW I realize blog platforms are bubbles like all other platforms on the Internet. The content is shared almost exclusively among its members. The audience is to be found inside the bubble and it only gets existence through VIRTUAL SOCIAL INTERACTION. It’s a completely different approach from what happens in the REAL WORLD, where advertising repeatedly from the distance on as many places as possible is the main method.

I’m not good at social interaction and I have the chills when doing so for commercial purposes. I am not a salesman.

Once more I’m trying to monetize this site through ads and traffic. So I’ll do my best in this virtual social interaction thing. Perhaps I’ll virtually meet some virtually interesting people who might share my stuff among their virtual and real friends, giving birth to what the Internet calls a COMMUNITY, in spite of being absolutely virtual to me. Hey! I actually had a girlfriend whom I met through HI Five! What the hell am I complaining about?
