About Robert Scott III

Who Are You?
I am currently pursuing my Master's in English and it would be appreciated if I could bring monetary relevance to my degree. This page is dedicated to my two blogs.
I wrote up to 100 articles for the online magazine Odyssey for up to two year and I volunteered as literary editor for my university's literary magazine "The Monmouth Review."
"Abandoning Old Gods" is where I write about literature, film, music, and other media; while "Quintillions Bright" is about science, linguistics, history, anything that is educational but also intriguing.

What Can You Offer?
I cannot make any major promises, except that I will do whatever I can to build up these blogs. My rewards for all of you are ways to reward my blogs if you enjoy them, therefore creating a symbiotic relationship between me, the blogs, and all of you.

Where Can I Find Your Blogs?

When Will I See New Posts On Them?
I try to post at least one article on each blog every week, so as to create a consistent flow that does not either overwhelm anyone's feed or lags into irrelevance.

How Will You Spend The Money?
The money would be spent on the maintenance of the blogs, any form of research material that I may need to come across for reviews or for scholarly reference, and the rest would help me personally.

Why Should I Pay You?
I would want a sustainable way to improve my blogs (if you enjoy them enough to continue seeing them in circulation) and if the funds are democratized, then so be it. I could just put ads on them, but from my experience writing for and reading articles on an online magazine, I can definitely say that ads can be really distracting and immediately destroy the reading value in the article. I also do not want my work to become cynical clickbait, rather as material that can be shown to anyone anywhere, whether in the home, the workplace, or the classroom.
Goals
$0 of $30 per month
I will be able to replace the stock photos in any of my articles to one that is customized by a freelancer. This is important because unique photos tend to attract more traffic than stock photos.
