My Backstory

My name is Blon Lee. I am a writer. Here's my blog.

I used to write self-help. I wrote for Tiny Buddha, Purpose Fairy, Pick the Brain, Dumb Little Man and some other self-help blogs. I did this for about 2 years and little people have read me.

I wanted to make it, but I tried too hard. Every post had to be perfect. Every article had to go viral. I put too much pressure on myself. And what came out sucked anyways. That stopped me from writing. I couldn’t write like that.

What I Write Now

Now I had given up. I don’t try to make it anymore.

Instead, I write what I like. I like to learn new stuff. And the best way to learn something is to write about it. So now I write what I want to learn:

  • Spirituality
  • Self-Help
  • Self-Improvement
  • Social Commentary
  • Pretty much anything

I will publish long-form, in-depth, well-searched articles on one of these topics. And hopefully by me writing it and you reading it, we can learn something together in the process.

Since these articles take a lot of work to write, I guess I will publish one around every three weeks. It may take longer than that.

I also do creative writing. Short stories and all that. These are easier, quicker and more fun to write. I will try to publish one of these around once a week.

I don’t lean toward any political faction. I don’t identify with any ideology or religion. I write to educate and entertain. But some of my topics can be controversial, offensive or “politically incorrect”.

Why I Am on Patreaon

Meanwhile I am a starving artist. I quit my full-time job to write. I have given up on “making it”. I decided to sacrifice myself to the craft of writing. This blog is now my life.

For this, I need to make my blog self-sustaining. I don’t have a job and I still need to eat. No matter how great I make my “sacrifice” sound, I am basically a bum.

I don’t want to put ads on my blog. Ads suck. From years of trying to make it on the internet, I know that marketing shenanigans only hurts our mutual trust. It kills the joy of writing and murders the reading experience.

So to sustain the blog, I came up with two methods:

1. Book sales. This is obvious coming from a so-called writer like myself. But books - I mean good books - take a long time to write. The sales of my short e-book didn’t even cover 5% of my expenses. When I wrote more maybe it would do the job. But now, it is not enough.

2. Donations. If you like my writing, you can donate however much you want per month. Anything from $1/mo up is a huge help to getting me out of poverty.

My first goal is $1000/mo. That’s enough to keep the blog going for a long time, since it keeps me alive. Specifically, here’s where the money goes:

1. Hosting. So I can host the blog on a fast, stable and secure server. It also keeps the blog from crashing.

2. Email Service Provider. So you can subscribe to me and I can send you articles, free ebooks and other good stuff.

3. Food and rent. I am living on my savings now. I will be extremely happy to have an extra meal or two.

So that’s about it. With all these covered, I can keep writing for you and die a happy man.

Thanks for any support you can offer if you decide to. If not, that’s completely fine too. I understand. The fact that you care to read this makes my day better already.

Talk soon,

Blon
