You can earn money here!
WFTL's article writers have the option of setting up a virtual Tip Jar on their profile (with tips going DIRECTLY to the writer's PayPal account and not even a penny taken for the site.) (See example.)
If you already have a blog post - or a few paragraphs in your head - about living aboard or cruising, you can post it - or a version of it - here. It doesn't have to be Pulitzer Prize quality work: it has to be just fairly coherent and either useful or entertaining (or both.) You will get an active link to your blog, and you might get enough tips to buy either a cup of coffee or maybe a new piece of boat gear . . . so why not add your writing?
