Thoughts on tax day
OK, folks, here's the sitch. I just did our taxes. Without going into details, it's serious turnips and sackcloth time--I mean, serious to the point that I may have to stop writing and somehow find a job a disabled mom can do. I need your help so that that doesn't happen, and I'm not necessarily talking about dropping huge wads of cash on me. Not that I'd turn that down.
If you're pondering buying me books, ponder sending money instead, or if you're buying for yourself or gifts, ponder buying yourself stuff of whatever kind through my Amazon link. If you haven't done the market challenges, get crackin'. They're free to you, they count toward chapters, and they raise page views and visitors here. That leads to more advertisers, and we really need advertisers.
When the husband and I were discussing stuff, we thought about the Perfoom Challenge we did here a few weeks ago, where I updated daily when you guys met a $100 challenge. You met the challenge in 48 hours. I'm wondering if income here might go up if I started updating daily--if I moved to AE's model and did updates 5x week and a bonus if a (much higher than current) target is met. I know I don't have the fan base to get $250/wk. You guys have been so fabulous to support such a new story at the level you're supporting it. But I have to take this to the next level, or stop and focus on stuff that makes us money.
What do you think? I'm grasping at straws here, and I'm under a lot of pressure to bring in more cash, some way, some how.
