This is bold. I think that’s what I would’ve done 4 years ago if the Partner Program had existed back then. Just learn to be content with a minimum lifestyle and go all-in on writing about what I want.

Not everyone can stomach this. If you can’t, I wouldn’t tell you to do it. But if you can, it may be the most straightforward way to getting paid for writing about what you want. Not the easiest, but the most straightforward.

Because in the end, there’s no good way to do it. All paths to writing full-time hurt. All paths to doing anything full-time hurt. So I commend you for choosing this one, and if you ever feel like you can’t stomach it — you’re not alone, you can always ask for help. Please do if you ever feel like you need to!
