When I think about my blog, there is of course a slight inkling of financial curiosity. I wonder how many readers it takes to monetize a blog, even slightly. So I have a goal which seems moderately in reach, considering I have no idea how to make money on a blog, but I do know people do it. My goal is to make enough every month to buy a Chipotle Burrito.
Chipotle Burritos are my favorite food in the world. In fact, I am a Master Burrito Ambassador MBA with the plaque from Chipotle to prove it (look it up, it’s a real thing). I like to price things I buy in their burrito opportunity cost (about $8 apiece). It definitely helps me save money to evaluate everything I buy in the number of burritos I could have instead. Is that new purchase going to cost four burritos? Would I rather have it than four burritos? Rarely 🙂
Although, as both a burrito connoisseur and shareholder I’d just offer this piece of advice to Chipotle; work to keep those prices down while keeping the burritos awesome. As my wife loves to remind me, Chipotle is no cheap meal out, at about $21 a trip when we get our barbacoa burritos with guac and an iced tea.
What is your alternative to the burrito multiplier? Also, if anyone knows how I might go about turning this endeavor into a burrito-a-month business let me know.
