A year ago today, I wrote this uninteresting post and Living with Balls was born. 198 posts later, it’s still alive and kicking.
A lot has changed since that first post. My initial plan when starting this blog was for it to be more of a men’s magazine. I’d write the occasional funny piece but I’d also write reviews, give advice and write sports analysis.
Then it occurred to me that I really don’t like writing about anything serious. Also, my “funny” posts were doing way better than the posts where I gave out shitty advice or wrote a boring review—and with a name like Living with Balls, how could anyone take anything I wrote seriously? So I gradually transformed it to a humor blog for men and that’s where it stands today.
I’ll admit it. My main motivation a year ago was to make a little side cash off this site. It occurred to me pretty quickly, however, that making money off a blog would not be so easy. I’ve realized that making some real coin from this blog may never happen. I’m ok with that because I also didn’t know how much I’d enjoy it. So I’ll continue to write and if I make some money off this site, then great! If not, I’ll still continue to work hard at making it better each day. (more…)
