Whenever I look at the blog of a new follower, there are two things guaranteed to make me lose interest immediately.
1) Using the phrase “Buy me a coffee”, with a payment option box next to it.
2) Writing “If you enjoyed this blog, please contribute so I can continue to keep blogging”.
(With a payment option box next to it)
Just so you know, I am NEVER going to give any money to any blogger. Whether that’s for the usual ‘coffee’, or so that you can sit at home blogging and get paid for it.
It is not my responsibility to pay for you to be a blogger. If you want payment, please do not follow my blog. I am never going to follow you, or read any of your posts.
There are hundreds of free blogging options, many of which are used by those asking me for money. It costs them nothing to blog, so why are they asking me to pay? Is it for their time perhaps? I should be expected to pay to read their opinions, or see a photo of what they cooked for dinner last night?
Not going to happen.
If you need to make money, get a job. If you want to run an online business, set up a real website.
Blogging is not a job, and other bloggers are not here to pay you for doing it.
