RE: World Famous in Rhode Island
Not sure if Ian was chumming the waters with his headline, but I’ll bite: Jerzyk looking to sell Rhode Island’s Future. Heh, some of us would agree (ba dum bum).
Ian has more from Matt:
For me, I have given 3 years of my life to getting RI Future off the ground and I am ready to pass the torch sometime in the near future. In fact, I have been talking with interested parties about selling the blog. Ideally, I would like to sell it to someone who will maintain the character and the integrity of the blog.
Ian also covered Matt’s entrepreneurial quest in his article and quoted Justin to the same, if less ambitious, effect. As for us Anchorites, well, perhaps we are a little less profit-driven in our motivation for blogging. To quote, um, myself (forgive the pretension) from Ian’s piece
You have to do it because you love doing it for its own sake. Lots of blogs flame out. People get bored or realize how hard it is. But I think that so long as you are passionate about something — whether politics, music, food or whatever — you will be able to keep it going. Just don’t ever look at it as a way to make money or gain power.
Don’t get me wrong: more power to Matt if he can make a nice profit from his investment. Speaking for myself, I just never envisioned making a buck off of this blogging stuff. It may sound all altruistic and naive–cue “Kumbaya”–but my goal is simply to do my part to help improve RI’s future for my kids and their generation.
