Thanks, Jon. Number 1 really got me.

The other day I wrote a popular article on Medium, and a magazine reached out to me and asked if they could use it on their site. Instead of blurting out a desperate yes and throwing in the kitchen sink too, I asked them how much they pay writers like me for content.

They haven’t gotten back to me. Maybe they won’t. But I know my worth, I believe in my writing, and I know I’m good at it. I know my value. I might not be able to make a living off it yet, but I’m damned sure good enough to at least ask how much money someone would consider paying me — something I would never have done before.

Thanks.
