I need your input about my travel blog.
I have always thought of The Rollerbag Goddess blog as a living resume of my writing, and a great way to share my travels with family and friends and anyone else who wants to pause and think about the greater lessons gleaned from travel. In fact, I initially started it as a way to share my travel writing skills with the hope of someday landing a job as a travel journalist.
The blog generates no income, and to my knowledge no one has hired me specifically because of the blog. I don’t mind doing the work without compensation–though it’s time-consuming, it’s rewarding. But I’m at the point where I will have to pay to post content. I’m wondering if it’s worth it.
What are your thoughts?
- Should I retire the blog?
- Should I pay for a premium or business account?
- Should I offer a contribution option for those who find the content valuable and want to support it, and if I did would you contribute? Many freelancers are doing this these days, but I’ve never wanted to go that direction.
- Are there other options I should explore?
Please leave a comment.
Thanks for your help!
