What jobs can one get in writing? People always just say "start a blog" but what the fuck is that all about, who gives a shit about a random blog?
How easy it to work for BuzzFeed? I'll sell my soul IDGAF
Go to school for sociology, or just research Critical Theory in depth. Become, if at all possible, weak in some way, display said weakness, be biting, incisive against the powers that be, sarcasm is a must, mixed with a heartfelt humanism and caring for others and oneself amid this trying grief. You are halfway there. Now present a controversial topic, not to yourself, or those whose opinions you follow, to the enemy, what will make the enemy mad? Find the thing they hate the most, it isn't hard, you just have to circle the alt-right or MRA or something internet for a week or two. They complain about 3 or 4 things which will in all likelihood never happen. Bring up one of those exact things. The MRA, or altright or whoever will flip their collective shit, your tribe will flip their own collective shit, twitter wars will be had, tears of oppression will be shed, death threats will be hinted at, at least 4 opeds on semi-respectable journals and 200 blog posts on the raging man and womandom internet spheres will be raged. You will potentially if you do something even more outrageous be backed by people who hate the people you're upsetting enough to fund it make at least enough to do a talk show.
Results may vary
A portfolio is better, but a blog is a viable way of attracting attention if you build it up properly and get enough people to notice it. Though either way it's an endless cycle of circlejerking that may or may not lead to anything worthwhile.
