Running Poem R015

A nickel per view –
A quarter per Like or Pin –
A dollar per Share –
That’s what it would take for me
To live off my online work

Notes to this poem…

Just a math puzzle I did for myself during a fast 7.5 mile run today. It was based on performance stats of my various online presence, from my blog to this blog to Pinterest to Instagram, etc. and my personal finances. And then I composed this tanka to summarize the answer.

What do you think about while running? 🙂

Nice exercise, but not reality, I’m afraid. I estimate I get about 0.1 cents or less per view on my blogs and nothing for any of the other categories, though the other categories might bring indirect income via more views generated.

Maybe next hundred runs or so, I should think about how I can get enough views to get the income required, lol.

The R-series poems were composed while I was out running, in an effort to find time for writing in a life that is always getting busier.
