Greetings from Los Angeles. As of today, tics for Stink remain at a minimum. (Knock on fake wood desk.) I need to make a few gluten-free sandwiches with natural strawberry jelly and carrot sticks (can you feel my son’s excitement?) so I’ll keep this short:
Is this blog enough? Assuming I continue to write a couple of times per week, I really want to know: Why do you come here or to my Happily Ticked Off site?
- Tips on diet?
- Emotional support?
- Doctor referrals?
- Homeopathic aids?
I ask because I’m considering doing another site – a kind of “upgrade” support-group type site.
I belong to my beloved private one – Twitch and Bitch – and it’s been awesome. As much as I love writing here – and will continue to for FREE – I wonder if maybe it’s time to dig a bit deeper and bust out the diet charts, the doctor referrals throughout the USA, the homeopathic ads and all the stuff that has really helped Stink and I.
The fee would be minimal and it would provide a deeper connection to folk going through crisis. As a produced TV and magazine writer, it would also allow me to continue to make a living at my craft providing content for what I am passionate about, rather than taking on another gig pushing organic diapers for $5 bucks a post to elite parents with kids named after cities and house plants whose feeeeeelings define the universe.
My concern, of course, is that I don’t come of predatory. A big reason I don’t have blog ads here is that I am not a fan of the whole “Oooooh, your son is having seizure like face tics? Click on my ad for magnesium so I can make 5 cents on a click-through and you can waste money on a supplement that may or may not work.) For the record: Love the magnesium! More on that another day.
In conclusion, please consider reading, commenting and writing for this site. TSParentsOnline could use some love and some bloggers also. Are you a writer? I will hook you up here! Great for your portfolio and you can help moms and dads struggling with tic issues.
