Skellie on blogging and creating without ulterior motives:

You’ll get more happiness from your blog if you see it as something that has value and meaning in its own right, rather than being food for a very hungry sales-machine. When I say happiness, I’m talking about the lasting kind. The kind that contributes to a life well-lived.

Make less money and more happiness.
Sell less, help people more.
Market less, create more.

Oh hell yes. Nothing wrong with making money, but sometimes it’s a lot more fun not to.
