A lot of us might say we want to be writers. The trick is doing it sustainably, and in a way that can help sustain us. Jon Dykstra has managed to turn his desire to write into a career running profitable niche authority websites that serve the needs of people who share his own interests. He also blogs and teaches on the side, helping others who might want to follow in his footsteps. In this episode Jon will tell us how he was originally inspired by exposure to early blogging platforms while working as a lawyer, how he developed and adapted his process as the industry grew and changed around him, and how being true to his own interests keeps him motivated as he works with a team of writers and editors to build and run his publications.
