Hi Burk, I like what you’re doing a lot. Personally, I’m not concerned with the ads you run or the way you run them, so was surprised to see those comments.

If people find it shocking you make money from ads, are they not aware that that’s how many newsletters roll? I find added value often from it.

But, that’s me, others are of course different. I simply wanted to mention this.

Thanks, & keep the great content coming.

Thanks a lot!

It can be done tastefully. I want to make it a priority to get really good stuff in the ad and sponsor sections.

I've been following your journey for a while, how long did it take you to be a full-time content creator?

About 2.5 years. Medium kickstarted everything in 2021 and in July 2023 I became a full time creator.

Will there be a rebrand/replacement of Solocreator or are you just doing the Essays by Burk?

No SoloCreator will stay. But with newly formatted content. The essays is a new and separate newsletter for all content that doesn’t really fit the creator niche.
