I mean, I have sold my soul to the devil of capitalism and became one of their minions. I have blogs which I have posted advertisments in which I try to sell things which I may not even wear, even if it ever arrive to my shore. Most of them are not even sold here. Okay, let me rephrase that. Some of them are not sold in Malaysia by a proper boutique opened by the company which manufacture the products. Malaysia is famous for its 'unendorsed' branded goods, so saying certain brands are not here is wrong.
Anyway, let us talk about being one of the minions working for the devil. A blog was supposed to be born for you to write something that you have an interest in. In my case, I registered 4 blogs, have 2 active ones which I post something everyday and 2 which I reserved the name for future use. I write everyday for the past 1 year and it actually help refined my writing. I have evidence which show that my writing a year ago was so lousy that a colleague thought that writing was done by someone else.
Basically, my point is, even good writers have long ago sold their sold. Are they not write to sell books? Didn't they get paid for their articles? There are those who write for magazine which has more advertisements than articles. Are they committing sins? Rarely are blog nowadays does not has at least an adsense advertisement. I say, if you do not want to make money at all from your blog, keep it private. Then you are as pure as dew in the morning.
As for me, I will continue writing all that I still believe in but occasionally, I may write pure commercial writings which may intrude the space reserve for quality writing. Just bear with and next time or if ever you meet me, you can at least ask me to buy you a drink.
