A couple of positive things have happened recently with regards to Monkey Minds. I had an article published on The Platform, a blog and current affairs site which aims to give a voice to new writers or bloggers.
I also got nominated for one of the top ten mental health blogs by Feedspot. Yay!
My medium to long term plan with this blog is to be able to eventually make a little bit of money out of it, either by increasing my readership here and using affiliate links to earn cash, or by getting articles published externally, so this is a good start.
I would prefer not to have to use advertising as I don’t want to undermine the integrity of my writing here. Its purpose first and foremost is to write honestly about OCD and other mental health conditions and to help/inspire both sufferers and non-sufferers, and I definitely do not want to write about stuff that I don’t believe in for the sake of earning a few quid.
So, we’ll see how it goes. If you’re enjoying Monkey Minds, please share it on social media!
