When I grow up

I need to change up this website. I’m not sure what it is I’m gonna do to it or how I’m gonna change it I just know that I’m not a big fan of the way it is now. I started this thing because that is what “they” say you need to do if you want to try and become a writer and make a living at it. I need to create a website and start a blog. I’m still not even really sure what the fuck a blog is. I mean I know it’s like little articles. People’s thoughts and feelings and opinions. Reviews of things or descriptions/explanations for things. Right? Or no? Like what makes a blog a blog? And why exactly do I need this? They say I need to have examples of my writing, like a portfolio so that other people can see them and I can gain notoriety but I don’t think anyone even sees this shit. I feel like Facebook is gonna allow me to reach more people cause I already have notoriety there. But this shit just feels like I’m writing in a journal and then hiding it under the bed. What the fuck do I know about marketing or SEO campaigns? About calls to action and clicks and views? How the fuck is this gonna help me to make money with my writing? I’ve Google searched the fuck out of this, read all kinds of articles or content as these people want to call it. Subscribed to numerous newsletters, stumbled through a few different courses/lessons about how to becoming a freelance writer. Digested all kinds or different information and opinions and I’m still standing here like huh? Maybe all y’all were wrong. Maybe I’m not a writer at all. Maybe I am just good with words and lacking a certain amount of give a fucks. Maybe I should just go back to selling dope.

I'm a hot mess. A 41 year old child who still doesn't know what he wants to be when he grows up. Or even if he wants to grow up for that matter. People say I'm a writer. I'm not so sure. But it is therapeutic and helps me from going all the way left sometimes.
