Well, this kind of sucks.

I lost my job this week. While I indeed messed up (I won’t bore you with the details) I still think the punishment is rather harsh, but there’s nothing I can do about it. This means I’m looking to find a new income source. I can’t monetize the site, although considering how little traffic I get it wouldn’t matter. Then again, I never started this site to make money; I started it to get thought out of my head and hopefully improve my writing skills when the time came to pursue what I wanted to do as a career. That’s going to be pushed back. Again. The same is true for the videos, although that I wish I was making money on because they’re fun but a lot of work.

As for the Spotlight, the future is uncertain. My first concern is finding a new job. the hours of that job (if I find one) will decide if I have time to continue working on this site or not. My big problem is the daily comic review. I won’t be able to get new comics if I need to worry about debt and bills first. I only have a small amount of cash saved up and while I should try to focus on selling off some stuff (which I would have anyway, which is where The Clutter Reports sort of comes in) to at least try to help I can’t put any money to new comics, at least until the debts are paid and even then there are the new bills. I’m debating getting comics next week or waiting out a few series or arcs and dropping titles. I’m putting my future in the Lord’s hands and I haven’t been very good at communicating with Him lately.

So as for now things are…murky at best. I would like to get a job on a review site or something since I have over five years experience thanks to the Spotlight and the other two sites I post stuff to, plus my reviews and local convention coverage videos. I also make my own banners and logos so if you know of anybody hiring written or video reviewers please let me know.

Beyond that…I just don’t know what’s going to happen. Pray for me, would you? I’m not asking for pity or anything else. Just letting you know things are going to be off-center for a while here at BW Media Spotlight.

  1. Have you checked out agony booth? http://www.agonybooth.com/ I know it’s been a bit of a running gag that they take all the reviewers TGWTG rejects. XD

    Seriously though, I might need some minor banner work, email me with how much you’re thinking of charging.

    • I don’t know if the Agony Booth is looking for writers much less paying them. RU doesn’t pay me, but he doesn’t play the video producers either. These sites are usually a place to post your stuff to in hopes of getting an audience from the other producers. The video makers get money from ad revenue on their videos.

      I’m not sure what I would charge since I’m not always that confident in my own work. 🙂 😦

  2. You will be in my, and my families, prayers.
    If there is anything I can help with, on internet side of things, let me know.
