Damien Knight

It’s Friday again and so once more it is Follow Friday where I thank my followers. I also want to let you all know that Aaron, our travel blogger, has been on trip in Hawaii and when he returns will have new posts for us. The kids also are working on new writing pieces.

Forward March:

Patreon:

Before I get into our Follow Friday I want to really plug our Patreon. As a college student raising two kids life is expensive. Our Patreon was set up to help fund expenses and reward those who support us. For only a dollar support you get featured at the top of our Follow Friday Blog Post.

The Words That Break Your Spirit

By Damien Knight

I am use to having little to no money. I once was so poor that I had found 20 ways to use scraps to flavour ramen. Still when you look your youngest in the eye and tell them :

“Please quit begging I don’t have food to give you.”

Those are words that break a mans spirit. I blog because I love to write but I also am doing this so I never have to look my children in the eye and tell them we can’t eat. We come a long way since 2009.

I am grateful to everyone who reads my posts. Please if you like our pieces support us on Patreon.
