Okay Allie, will you now go over to the Billfold and explain how, exactly, you made the choice to jump to full time?? I'm fascinated by this transition, and how people make it. I've followed Suri's Burn Book for over a year, and I always figured it was just a fun writing project for someone--how did you go about transitioning that to a full time job? Or, at least, full enough to let you explore job alternatives? Was there a serious cutback? Was there a point in which you realized you suddenly had a lot of extra income? How/when did you decide to monetize? That might be too nosy/money-y for this interview series but I'm just so interested in these blogs that transition to full-time jobs, and how they do that.
@simone eastbro OMG not that I don't love Blow just the way it is but...this is a song i can relate to.
This is one of my fave videos ever posted here... could not have been more excited about this announcement.
I'm moving to Alaska.
Oh look, you've found my christmas list!
@all I mean, I guess it's part that I enjoy women's magazines and recognize that they aren't always trying to appeal to me/my education level with their writing, and part that I think that this piece is, in part, arguing that certain types of writing are better/worse than others, which I find...aggravating.
But hey! I don't write for a living, I just like reading other people's writing, so I guess I'm just not the audience for this, and that's okay.
I had hope that the jokes in this would be funny or clever enough that I would be able to move past how actively I hated the premise of this piece, but unfortunately not, I hate it just as much at the end.
But kudos to you, Sarah Miller, for writing such consistently hit-or-miss pieces that I kept reading until the end of this one waiting for a hit.
