Trying to make a living from Blogging and self publication is a struggle. Across social media and skimming past various sponsored posts belonging to others is envious; some of us may have found ourselves in a rut questioning ‘why can’t I be successful too?’ For the most part, in my thought processes as least, earning money isn’t the most important aspect: I want people to engage with whichever topic I chose to discuss as it’s helping with my mental health. However, having an income is a hurdle in my life right now and I don’t deserve sympathy, I put myself in this situation when opting to live abroad.
Other than writing I have no special skills or talent to create art in exchange for donations, although would it be to much to ask if you would kindly buy me a coffee or tea over at http://www.paypal.me/EmmaM95 (I’m aware that this link doesn’t work via this post, but it works when put into a search engine). Anyone who donates anything, no matter how small, I will mention you on my blog as well as Twitter as a token of my gratitute.
I feel awful, like I’m begging, but I love to support other writers and creators so maybe I deserve some recognition once in a while, right?
