♠ Time to get this off the Ground ♠
Let it be known: I am a free agent. I do not have corporate sponsors. I don’t have no corporate backing. I don’t have no major distribution.
LAKEWOOD, N.J. (JSC) — I wrote my first true blog in the fall of 2003 when I was in Detroit. Yep. 12 years ago. It was on Xanga.com. I’m not quite sure if that site still exists or if it went the way of such extinct things as the Passenger Pigeon, Dodo Bird, Death Row Records, and MySpace. I just know that when I started blogging, I was about six months past my graduation from Michigan State and I was just looking for a way to express my damn opinions without the need of a filter. Over the last dozen years, I’ve managed to take the bloggage from Xanga, to MySpace in 2007, briefly to Facebook, before finally settling here on WordPress in 2009 when the site was in its infancy. The ill thing is that you can clearly see how I and this blog has evolved in just the last six years. Lord knows if I read some of the stuff I wrote in 2003, when I was 24 years old, what’s left of my hair would turn white. So let’s get to the point of this piece of business: I’m looking to grow this blog and the soon-to-premiere podcast, JSC Radio, and I’m looking for sponsors and ways to monetize this thing. I’m not asking for your “advice” nor am I asking for a hand out. Spare me your “Go get a side hustle” crap. I’m looking for people who own businesses who are looking to get themselves some exposure and grow them. We’re talking square biz to you right now. Let’s Go!
After the stunning response to last week’s blog — and by the way, thank you all for the kind words of encouragement and support — I realized that there can be a true market for not just the radio show, which people have been clamoring for apparently, but also this blog. When JSC Radio jumps off, the show will not only post on Blogtalk Radio and iTunes, it will also be on my Soundcloud page and here on this site. I’m looking for people who can advertise here on the site, through ads as well as mentions. I’m not beyond being a shameless shill for a product, but obviously, I gotta get paid for it.
