The Black Pill of Business & Monetization

In the latest episode of the show, I go into details regarding Illimitable Man’s very good and fair post over on Reddit about monetization in the modern ‘Sphere. This will be the only “sticking my head” into this business, but you’re free to discuss fairly and rationally in the comments below (I’ll manually approve them).

In a nutshell, the “Black Pill of Business” is a bit of an ugly, perhaps unfortunate, side effect—that plagues many hobby bloggers.

    I’ve read that post on reddit before listening to the show and I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, but let me tell you that I’ve been a subscriber on your email list for a really long time during which I’ve unsubscribed from many others.

    You always had to share an interesting story that doesn’t really come as a made up copy of an ad purposefully made to sell something at the end and this is how you’ve earned my respect.

    Yet, you’ve had a CTA or ‘shameless pitch’ as you call them at the end of the mail since forever. It was never in the middle of the text. So the purpose of the mail wasn’t to sell. Even if it was, you sure as hell make sure to provide some value and I respect that.

    Keep it up bro. There are those people out there that IM is calling out but you’re not one of them for sure.
