Looking ahead a few years I will be able to retire from NRC and live and work more or less independently. But what will that look like? This article gives me some indication of what to expect if I focus on OLDaily and the work as a journalist I have done over the years. Previous experience suggests that I should not expect a lot from voluntary donations; Casey Newton reports that only five percent of his readership chose a paid subscription, and I imagine the rate is even lower if you don't have to pay. Buy it's possible to create incentives with things like live Discord sessions and such. In terms of content, the article convinces me not to focus on interviews, to keep things fresh (and opinionated), and to take advantage of my flexibility to run sideprojects.
