Believe me, if any of us were as good a writer as we think we are we would be writing for the Washington Post, or Time Magazine or be a best selling author. We write mainly because we are ego driven to do it. The fact that anyone at all bothers to read us and may even compliment us is a big fat bonus.

Forget the money thing. It ain’t happening here.
