The Princess Bride predicting Covid-19?


Please be aware that nearly every page on this website contains spoilers to something. I talk about a lot of fandoms, and go into great detail analyzing them when I do. If I am talking about The Witcher series, InuYasha, Disney Ducks, the Quaraun series, or any other fandom, you WILL encounter spoilers about it. 

FAQs About Travel Writing: 

As has been requested (endlessly) EK's Star Log is returning to the internet. You can still read the original archive here... 

The reason you couldn't find it is because I set it to private un-index mode, meaning it no longer shows up in Google search results and can only be accessed by a direct link.

Meaning, if you didn't have the url for it, no amount of searching for it would tell you how to find it. Anyone who had the url could still access it though.

I had set it to private September 23, 2013, intending to move each page here to however, November 14, 2013, after only moving about 30 pages, I was beaten up and left paralyzed for 5 months, then spent 18 months relearning to walk. I am still crippled and have limited mobility.

Below is one of the blog posts that originally appeared on EK's Star Log. The original articles are still online but no longer indexed in Google. Links to the original article, are included with this post, as is the original posting date. Clicking the links will take you to the original site, where you can see the old Space Dock 13 website still online. Space Dock 13 as it looked when hosted on WordPress from 2003 to 2013.

My Answer:

The answer is both and neither.

Both, because you could make it either a full time job or a part time job if you set out to doing enough travel, enough writing, and than find enough sources to publish said writing.

Neither because a full time job pays a minimum of $7.50 per hour for 40 hours of week per week, for a total of no less than $300 of income per week (or $1,300 per month or $15,600 per year).

Part time is the same $7.50 per hour, but at a rate of 14 – 32 hours per week, for an income no less than $105 and not more than $240 per week (or $455 – $1,040  per month or $5,460 – $12,480 per year).

Overtime is anything over 42 hours a week and typically starts at $12 per hour.

I say neither, because the average HIGH PAID writer makes $2,000 to $5,000 per year, even after putting in 50 to 60 hours of writing per week, which means they are getting paid at a rate of $3 per hour for working overtime.

The average writer, works a regular 9-5 full time job to pay the bills and uses the pay they get from writing as a way to buy Christmas gifts at the end of the year.

But than you are asking specifically about Travel Writing, which is one of the lowest paid sectors of the writing industry.

Many travel writers are lucky if they can get 1 or 2 articles published per year and even luckier if they can get paid more than $10 for the article.
