This is just a heads up- in recent times, aside from work, there are articles I write for this blog, and then there are articles I write for money. Recently the opportunities for the latter have increased. Therefore, guess which of the two I’m going to be putting more time into.
Initially I was hoping that the blog itself would make enough daily views to get some kind of ad revenue, but I discounted that option a long time ago. If that weren’t the case then yes, I’d put more time into the blog as opposed to freelance writing.
Of course I will continue writing the blog; many publications frown on using terms like “cockbags,” or phrases like “I bet Bellingcat geolocated your mom at work in a truck stop parking lot.” The blog gives me full freedom to vent, even if it doesn’t make money.
Keep watching Russia! Magazine, because I have new stuff coming out there. But soon I should hopefully be publishing work in a new venue as well, and what is more- it won’t all be Russia related. The transition has begun.
