Someone has just hit my inbox trying to give me the hard sell on how I can boost traffic and turn a profit with this long-running blog, just by tweaking my writing style and presentation a bit. They want to work with me.
What they don’t get is that this blog is not a product, but is—rather—my therapist. And that without it, at various points over seventeen years, I would quickly and easily have gone clinically insane.
The last thing I need to do is boost my traffic, tweak my writing style, and generate an income. I get income elsewhere. I need this space to talk to and about myself, without resistance. Because there is noplace else that I can do it.
