when i started the foxhole back in 2009,
i didn’t start it with the intentions of making money.
i didn’t even know it was going to be a “foxhole”.
i didn’t think anyone would care enough to check me out.
i used it to express myself,
font about good lookin males,
and whatever else interested me at the time.
what i didn’t know was…
My random NSFW content would fuck me up out here
i’ve been doing a lot of research while at this temp job.
many blogs that have written content,
but don’t have audio/video,
pull in over 10k and up in revenue.
the thing is,
they are niche blogs.
they aren’t like mine.
they don’t have NSFW content either.
so a site like mine,
which has 22+ million views,
is considered “bottom of the barrel” due to the content i’ve written about.
which is the reason many companies have turned me down.
Damn me for being sexual at times!
and if the story called for it,
i love fonting about sex.
i wish someone would have warned me about the future tho.
i’ve since toned it all the way down,
but it still is a major factor in sponsorships.
this is another instant where i fucked up being “me”,
the foxhole appreciates it; the sponsorships don’t.
Is it wrong that it made me feel defeated?
what’s the point of working so hard on this platform,
but not being able to enjoy the fruits of my labor?
i am tired of working these jobs when this is my passion.
everyone i’ve asked for help,
and by help i mean actually being hands on,
didn’t come through.
“i got you!
ima make this and that happen,
ima put you on to who and whoever…”
…they never helped me.
all the folks i asked for helped are struggling to make it themselves.
at this point,
i need someone who is already in the door at this point.
other struggling artists can’t help other struggling artists.
so i’ve been considering opening another blog for a “niche” topic.
a site that just caters to one specific thing.
i’ve fonted to some other foxholers and i appreciate their advise.
the issue is…
What if you don’t know what your niche is?
i’m passionate about writing and just being random.
i don’t know what i like enough to dedicate more time to.
is that wrong?
