“Weird Internet Careers are weird because there is no one else who does exactly what they do.

And they’re careers because they somehow manage to support themselves.”
This article is actually a series of articles about a topic that’s near and dear to my heart: Making a living by using the internet to reach the world with your creations.
Gretchen McCulloch breaks down how to build a weird internet career including the story of how she built a career as an “internet linguist,” what it takes to get started, and how to take your own weird internet career to the next level.
Btw, I found this link in Austin Kleon’s newsletter.
