It has been a while since we’ve done an ask the readers post, so we’d love to hear from you on this one.
Does your website exist simply to make money or are you working to create something that matters?
Obviously the two options aren’t mutually exclusive. Also, the definition of “what matters” is up to you.
If you can’t think of your answer, think about it this way: When you first started out blogging or creating your website, what was the main driving force? We’d love to here your answers in the comments below this post.
Last Time on “Ask the Readers”
I have a feeling they are useful & effective for sites with less-than-savvy readership. If you’re looking to build an audience that’s surfing a variety of sites, sticking around for a while, and doing their homework – you’re better off without a pop up.
Great point Tara. It isn’t strictly about whether or not the pop-ups work to gain subscribers, it is about what kind of people you are turning away by using an invasive tactic.
Alright, back to today’s question.
I’d love to know: do you work online to make money or to make meaning?
How are making meaning and making money related?
If you’re doing both, tell us in what proportion and tell us which is the primary driver.
As always, there is no right answer. We just want to hear from you, so don’t be shy. Let’s hear it!
