Eating Palmiers After Being Bought Off by Drug CompaniesIn spite of the meme seen some places, I am not, in fact, bought off by a drug company. If I were, I’d be writing this from a tiny café in Paris while enjoying une café au lait et le palmier, which I most definitely am not (I can’t find a decent palmier this side of the water).

In fact, if I had to guess, I’d say healthcare companies in general don’t like me. But really, I’m OK with that.

But things do cost money and I do have to pay for them. I pay to have the site hosted and for the domain and then there’s the hours and hours I put into the site every week. Some of my posts take days to research. It’s actually pretty expensive.

I haven’t minded doing all that. I try to produce quality writing, provide honest, accurate information and help people in the small way I can. This is a reward in and of itself. Unfortunately, that type of reward doesn’t pay rent. (I tried to pay my rent in good feelings one month. I almost got arrested.)
