Hi all - I’m in the research stage of creating a blog-business, which will hopefully allow me to pursue a career involving writing. I am just starting to build a portfolio of content, which includes scientific articles, creative writing and instructionals/tips and advice. Currently I’m volunteering for other blog-businesses, but eventually I would like to derive an income from it and begin forming a career from it.
You’d really need to know all my strengths and weaknesses, interests and passions etc. to be able to make broad suggestions, so I’ll be specific:
I am thinking of utilising a donation system (inspired by what I’ve observed some pro-gamers on Twitch doing) that could allow consumers to interact with me. The idea is that the donations would facilitate the provision of more interesting services and allow the public to directly influence the content of my blog by being presented with predefined options or invited to make suggestions.
My theme of choice in general is essentially Biohacking/Personal Growth. Services that donations could facilitate would include experiments with supplements/nootropics/etc. and detailed journaling of the experiences, physical excursions and documentary, focal points for scientific research and the publishing of findings etc. and the list can go on as long as you guys like; I’m all eyes!
Do you think the above principle is likely to generate enough interest to justify the effort as a career path (assuming I deliver the goods more than adequately)? Any additional or alternative suggestions?
