Cryptocurrency and Authority Content

Every year around this time, I re-evaluate my business and decide how I want to proceed for the next year. Last year, as I was doing this, one of my clients asked me if I wanted to double my work load. I was hesitant at first because I wanted to pursue more white paper work and I knew I could make more money with white papers than I could with editing two publications. Of course, I like editing publications so that certainly was not a factor.

When my client said he was starting his new publication–Blockchain Times–and asked if I wanted to be the editor or if he should pick someone else, I did the most logical thing I knew to do. I accepted the position.

I do not regret that decision at all. It gave me full-time work, and I mean editing two publications took up almost my entire day. But the pay was adequate. And I didn’t get to pursue more white paper work. I did, however, learn a great deal about the blockchain industry, what’s going on with cryptocurrencies, and I joined Steemit in March of this year. That decision alone has been incredible as I have met many wonderful people and now have practical experience with blockchain and cryptocurrency. But I am ready for the next challenge.

What’s In Store for 2019?

Like stock markets, businesses wax and wane. There are peak periods and lulls. This year, following last year’s bull rally, turned out to be a bear run for crypto. As a result, Blockchain Times solidified a reputation as a respectable and consistent publisher of crypto content. However, it struggled with finding sponsors. That led to my client, in the last few months of the year, reducing the number of publications each week. That means, I’ve freed up some time to pursue other types of work.

But that is not the only thing that has changed around here. Before I get into the types of work Taylored Content will pursue in 2019, I want to make this important announcement:

Yes, we’ve decided to accept some of my favorite cryptocurrencies going into the new year. There will be some restrictions on this, however. First-time customers will have to pay in advance. No exceptions. My usual practice with fiat payments is pay-first, and it has been for years. Even longstanding clients, with a few exceptions, are invoiced before…
