After Rolf took our orders, he asked me, “So do you make money with this blogging thing?” I burst with laughter. “Oh no,” I said between wheezing laughs, “if anything, it costs me money!” I went on to say, “In 3 or 4 years, if I become really successful, I might—I might!—be able to make a very small side income.” “So,” he replied, “it’s like the restaurant business.”
I once called 20 times over 20 minutes on a Friday evening around 6:00 pm, but the line was continually busy or it just rang and rang. Finally, I decided to drive over and make sure it was open.
