Something you might not know about this blog is that I’ve stopped monetizing it. No ads, no affiliate links, no sponsored posts. Sometimes I do a collaboration, but only if I get to do exactly what I want.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with monetizing your blog, but it’s something I’m uncomfortable doing. I could explain why, but I’m afraid of coming off as harsh or judgmental, and that’s not at all how I feel!
I made this decision a little while ago, and I’m still trying to navigate the future of Mox and Socks. If I’m not making any money, why keep working so hard? Blogging isn’t always fun, and it’s frequently pretty stressful.
The thing is, I don’t know what I’d do without my blog. It’s become such a huge part of my identity, and it’s what I turn to when I get home each day. I love that I’ve developed some fierce photo skills, and I love writing posts that bloggers and fashion lovers can relate to.
I think I’d be remiss if I gave it up entirely, but I may cut back on some things. I’m not sure what things are going to look like around here, but I hope you’ll stick with me for the ride!
