Sharing My Vision for The Bipolar Writer Blog

I hope that each and every one of my fellow bloggers take a much-needed time off this Labor Day weekend. I recently wrote a couple of posts that talked about in small detail my plans for the future of The Bipolar Writer as we enter the one year anniversary of starting this blog. I think I went about it in the wrong way. Yes, I am struggling to upgrade to a business WordPress account, but I didn’t explain why.

 

Upgrading The Bipolar Writer Blog to the Business Level

You can use the Paypal button below to make a donation to the blog. 100% will go to expanding this collaborative blog. Every person that donates will get the mention in a particular blog post when we meet our goal and an individual page in my memoir. The goal is still $240. I have handful of days before I have to either stick with my current plan or upgrade. Thank you for giving!

My Vision of the Future – The Bipolar Writer Blog

I started this blog with a premium service here on WordPress. It gave me a domain name, access to the best themes on WordPress, and other important things that seemed important this past September. I never understood that this blog would become so amazing that I would consider upgrading my blog further than the premium service.

It makes sense that the business plan would be the next logical step for my blog. It has better tools to help me grow my blog, and at the same time– it would help me increase the followers beyond just WordPress. It will give me SEO tools, plug-ins, and integrating Google analytics.

Then There is Why I Want to Grow

If my plan is successful and I am able to raise enough funds to cover the cost of the WordPress Business plan I plan on expanding my list of contributor bloggers here on The Bipolar Writer. I currently have a family of twenty-two fantastic contributor bloggers that have made this blog into the amazing thing it is today.

I plan to expand to fifty (50) writers by the end of the year, and each will be able to share their experiences with their own mental illness. That is how we end the stigma that surrounds mental illness with shared experiences, I write more about it here: Why do We Fight to End the Mental Illness Stigma?

I plan to make this blog self sufficient in the coming months by adding an Editor position because the high volume of contributors will need another set of eyes. I will upgrade my best contributor blogger to authors so they can add their posts without needing me to edit. It will be the most trustworthy of my group.

Why I Need Donations

I have been saving every penny for one goal. Publishing my memoir. I have had donations in the past, and those are going towards paying an artist who can create a fantastic cover for me. (I am still having issues with finding an artist who shares my vision.) I just don’t have the funds for the business plan. I have ten days to either get enough donations or stick with my plan in hopes that eventually I will have enough.

So I ask if you can just give $2 that would help so much. If you can provide more, it would be amazing. Regardless, every person that donates will get a special mention in my memoir, and if we reach our goal, each will get a special thank you card from me via email and a mention in a blog post. This will be the last post about this, I do hope we reach the goal. I have never been disappointed by my fellow mental illness bloggers.
