Thank you, Joel! I start official Month 3 tomorrow! I'm not impressed with my first $16.51 paycheck or my maybe $20 paycheck for June. However, I am noticing other benefits you mention. It feels like this platform is going to be key for me. And, I have committed to sticking with it for a year minimum.
Reading this article from you--a well-know and established writer--helps me take a breath and chill the eff out.
I will continue to write fearlessly whatever the hell I want and trust that good things will follow.
