One of these days, when we decide to leave academia or decide it’s time to sell our souls for more income…
We’re going to create a new blog. We’re going to call the guy who owns the blog, Steve. That way we won’t have to put up with patriarchal BS. (Shhh “Steve” doesn’t really exist. He’s just a front man.)
Steve will run a personal finance blog. He will recycle our old and extremely awesome money posts. We’ll disappear them from this blog so if anybody notices that there might be plagiarism, only google cache will be able to help. We may even say that we sold the posts to Steve, so he’s not actually stealing our work. In theory the controversy would drive up hits, and we could even write a guest post for Steve explaining that we love his blog and sold him a few posts. Something like that.
We’re thinking of some version of quitmydayjob.com for the blog host. We’ve got some back-up plans in case that turns out to be too expensive.
He’s going to start with the plan of making moneys. He’s going to have advertising. He’ll do the Yakezie challenge. He’ll accept sponsored guest posts. He’ll do all the things that Nicole and Maggie don’t have time to or don’t want to sell their souls to do. Heck, depending on how much time we have, he might even write paid posts for other blogs! We’ll see.
Readers will be able to cheer him on as he works to make money so he can quit his soul-sucking dayjob. We haven’t decided what his current job is, but we know he doesn’t like it.
We’re not sure if he’s single or married or if he has kids yet. Probably if he has kids, there’s only one. Hm… maybe he could be a divorced single dad with custody, but the kid has insurance through the ex-wife. I dunno. Or maybe he’ll just be a single guy. So many decisions!
It’ll be awesome. One of these days when one of us quits her dayjob.
