UPDATE: PG has decided to move this post to the top of the queue from time to time for the edification of visitors to The Passive Voice and collect more stories in addition to the ones that have already been shared in the comments.
He has the blog configured to shut off comments after 14 days so older posts don’t accumulate a lot of link spam in the comments. Republishing the original post will open up comments again.
PG received the following suggestion from Dennis:
What if you put up a post that asked anyone who has recently been able to go “full time”, quit their day job and write, to post their name. Maybe they could also put when or how soon they are planning to do it.
That would be anecdotal evidence to support what Howey and Data Guy have been showing since their first report.
If you care to contribute such anecdotal evidence in comments to this post, please do.
If you think it’s your private business, don’t be offended. Just don’t post anything.
Feel free to post anonymously or under an online pen name if you like. If someone points out a trollish comment, PG will probably delete the comment when he gets around to it.
