I've made a decision recently.
While I've hoped to draw enough income to support myself fully from other aspects of my writing without having to put ads on my site, today I am not there yet. However, all the financial responsibilities of my #ChronicLife are. Rent, utilities, treatments, prescriptions, protein shakes and all those other glamorous indulgences that us #Spoonies thrive on ;)
I have decided to put custom ads from Amazon here and there with personal recommendations. My micro loft is full of twinkling lights, wonderful books and great little life hacks, I'm happy to share and you: go ahead and chuckle, ignore or indulge yourself as you naturally would. The ads are simply an aside.
My purpose continues to be to connect, to inspire and to tug on the threads that bind us all together. The migraine, autoimmune and CNS (Central Nervous System) diseases have created a unique community. When isolated we feel lost to the world. It was Alphonse de Lamartine who noted: Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated. Don't you ever feel like part of that depopulation? I know I do. However, the more connections I make with others who have won their own genetic lottery, the more populated the world feels, ... and with peeps just like me. To shout out into the darkness and hear a resounding "ME TOO" come back is one of the best feelings in the world.
Writing is a passion of mine. I love to do it. Between migraines and brain fog, I wait out the words like a Medium must her spirits. Although I have less need for a crystal ball or hair scarves. Granted, they do exude a charm all their own. Maybe I will try adding those to my environment next time writing turns especially laborious. All joking aside, I love pouring myself into stories and reflections for you to read. My hope is that you enjoy the reading half as much as I do the writing. Your constant notes and letters shape my writing and they influence me greatly. Please keep up the great work! I feel like I am on purpose with Migraine Royalty, in that I am in touch with the fabric of our wonderful community.. Thank you for understanding that needing to keep the lights on does not detract from my commitment to provide great content.
We have lots of adventures coming up, from our zen #ChronicLife Moments, #Inspire :#Quotes, explorations on #LightSensitive options to goodie bags from out #RoyalJet Flight Plans. We are even considering doing a column on the perils of #ChronicLife Dating and furthering our indulgences into #FunFinds. We love your ideas, so feel free to send yours to us, or comment below!
As always, we are so glad to have you as part of our family. You are never alone because no matter the ailment or illness, you belong. And remember.. like all royals, you are nobly born. So wear that crown proudly.
*should you find the ads intrusive, please drop me a note. I am brand new at this and it will likely take a moment to get it dialed in.
