CRAZY CRACKER BLOG BLOVIATERS
So, you want to write a blog so you can get away from the city and move to the backwoods and be a true blue super ninja survivalist? Got plenty of great ideas? Graduated from high school? You friggin idiot!!!! Do NOT write a blog. Writing a blog is a chumps game. Writing a blog expecting to make money is like a book writer expecting to be the next Stephen King. There is one or two of each and all the rest are cannon fodder in that battle to the top. Guess what-Rawles is on the throne. You ain’t gonna de-throne his ass. Can you make money? Of course. I make good money for only having 500 readers. I also could only survive on that, barely, if I turned lacto-vegetarian except for the rabbits I fought the coyotes for. I could just barely eat on my writing income. Which was kind of my point writing all these years. But if I wasn’t so egotistical and narcissistic, so utterly paranoid and hence in lust with the whole concept of doom and gloom ( and let’s face it, so pissed off at the world I won’t be sorry to see them go ), I wouldn’t have done this so long for so little reward. You WILL be rewarded if you have a modicum of talent and a LOT of great ideas. You will merely be rewarded in small amounts. It won’t be enough to finance a retreat.
Advertisers pay for results. A simple concept. Rawles delivers them tens of thousands of higher income individuals to whom $100 case of MRE’s is acceptable because God granted them wealth for their piety and rather than running and screaming toward the light to meet him, they are going to do everything they can to stay alive and spread His word. And then smite all unbelievers. Probably after they torture them to show them Gods love. This is the standard successful survivalist blog financial system. It is the equivalent of selling $200 a year financial newsletters. If you must write, if you must disseminate an idea, write a book. They cost zero to publish, either in print form ( print on demand ) or Kindle. With a blog, once those great ideas run out, you got nothing. There is pressure to always come up with more, new, better material, free. I love writing. I can’t stop. Yet writing a blog does suck. Do not fall into its Siren call as you will be pulled into quicksand. Find another way to make money out in the boonies. If you have to commute, remember, it is better to owe on a car and have it repoed than to owe on land and become homeless. Own the land, commute to a job. That model is far from perfect. You’d better be able to bug out back to the homestead, perhaps even off-road to avoid road blocks. But counting on a blog to get you out to a retreat? Worse idea. And just to write a blog for the pleasure of it? HAH! That won’t last very long. I still love you all, my very generous yet very diminutive community of minions. Peace.

oh,hairy head of questionable knowledge,you are,for once ,correct! The master JWR is the king of survival blogs,but he did not become king due to his blog,he did it by writing novels about doom and gloom.Also note that he doesn't write his blog,its a never ending contest with guest articles! He has a pile of books,a real estate agency,tons of advertisers,and no need to write a blog!ReplyDelete
I'm smelling the love!Delete
dear hairy wonder...it was not a love letter,it was a critique of your lousy writing skill.Delete
And I, Sir, was being sarcastic.Delete
actually,it was not written to be sarcastic,although his writing skills are atrocious.JWR himself doesn't do a thing,other than put his name on the blog.Delete

Love it :)
Next time you write a fiction story, why don't you include a holier than thou religious survivalist.
It was done in one of those 80's pulp series. Been percolating in my subconscious all these years.Delete
The best survivalist doesn't make the MOST money. It is the BIGGEST CON man that makes the most money. Tell the suckers what THEY want to hear and you can sell them dog POOP on a stick if you use the right salt.ReplyDelete
If that dog poo on a stick was deep fried it would sell DOUBLE the amount. Let's get on it!Delete
We all know that you are indeed James Wesley Rawles! Most of us have known for years that you just do this "blog" for fun and to remember how it was when you started out, we also know that you have your "children" help out with the blog.ReplyDelete
It's OK, A Man or Woman must get back to their roots. I read both of your blogs! I am in the poor man circle but still love the fact and fantasy that I could perhaps live on the fantasy land of a mountain top enclave, (the plane! The plane!)
Keep up the double work JWMD!
It would almost be believable except Rawles has a pretty low word output.Delete
isn't that cute? the anonymous fanboy has a crush on LB. LOL!ReplyDelete
