Getting help finding a job and managing your money should be accessible to EVERYONE and should NOT come at a cost.
Which is why everything on this site is 100% FREE, and has been free since it opened in 2011.
But… there is a cost for me to produce and deliver this content and resources to you. Each month I spend an average of $150 and 75 hours to keep this site operating and up to date.
I’m getting paid $0 for my time.
And because My Life, I Guess is intentionally ad-free, I’m lucky if I break even.
But I’m not doing this for the money – otherwise you’d be bombarded with pop-ups and flashy ads between every sentence.
I’m doing this to help people like you find work, succeed at work, and get your finances in order.
If I have helped you in any way, please consider supporting me!
Free Ways to Show Your Support
That’s right! Just as I’m able to support you for free, you can support me for free, too! Here’s how:
1. Subscribe to My Newsletter
If you’re not already subscribed to my weekly newsletter, sign up below! Subscribing helps me ensure you’re getting my posts and resources, and adds a much-needed personal element to blogging. It’s nice to know there are real people out there reading my work!
2. Follow Me on Social Media
Pick your favorite platform (or platforms) and follow My Life, I Guess. This helps improve my credibility and influence, encourages others to follow me, and helps build a community.
3. Visit My Life, I Guess
Simply being here and reading the articles on this site helps quite a bit! Google and other potential collaborators care about a site’s traffic. So the more you visit, the more you’re telling these companies that the content here is helpful.
4. Share My Posts and Resources
On that same note, sharing my posts and resources with your friends, family, and your own social media followers helps too by increasing traffic.
But more importantly, reaching new people that will find the support or advice they need is the whole reason I’m doing this.
5. Comment and Like My Posts
You’ve probably noticed that your social media feeds don’t show you everything, and that’s thanks to algorithms. Commenting, liking a post, or engaging with it in any way is like a “vote” that shows the various algorithms that these platforms use that this content is good and deserves to be seen!
6. Check Out My Recommendations
Like most bloggers, I make (some) money from affiliate marketing. This basically means that I partner with a product or service and earn a small commission when someone makes a purchase or signs up using these links. So, if you see something you like, please consider using my links! (It won’t cost you anything extra.)
I try to promote free offers as much as possible and only recommend things that I know are worth it.
7. Message Me
Sending me a quick email or message through social media means the world to me! (Seriously, I keep every single one and re-read them whenever I start to feel overwhelmed or need a little encouragement.) I don’t always know who is here or how I’ve helped, so please contact me and let me know!
This is also a great way to suggest your ideas or ask me questions! Doing so ensures I’m providing YOU (specifically) real value and interesting content.
If you do have a little extra room in your budget, you can also support me by “buying me a coffee” for as little as $2 with a straight-forward donation through Ko-fi. (Aww, thanks!!)
Thank you for being here! Thank you for reading my work! And of course, thank you for your support, no matter what shape that supports comes in!
