What a pleasant treat to sleep in until 8am. That's the upside of getting laid off. I could have slept even longer too but some contractor came to the door insisting he had a counter to install here. It took several times for him to understand that we own the building so he must have the wrong address. I figure he made the old East and West mixup. We live on a long street that stretches both East and West of downtown so there are matching addresses on either side of city hall.
I was thinking about how to make money from blogging. I saw this article about a BC blogger who is making forty grand a month from his blog. He started it just like most of us, to keep in touch with friends and family but then it morphed into a blog about "monetizing blogs". I don't think Sticky Crows has a big potential for making money (maybe for poop related products ha) but what about something else I know about - how to scrimp and save and make chump change for a living but still be able to travel the world. Hell you can live for a month off of a large bag of rice and beans that'll cost you less than a dollar a day. Dull, but doable. I'll let you know if I start a different blog.
There was a good chuckle on Facebook yesterday when my cousin posted about looking for Thanksgiving centerpieces for the table. Apparently, and I checked to make sure, if you google thanksgiving turkey centerpiece, the first site that comes up is a site that shows you how to make such a thing from tampons. And no, not used. Actually the site is hilarious - tampon crafts dot com. Hey Rox, there's some new crafting ideas for you there. Now I can't help wonder if the owner of that site is making any money. Surely if she (gotta be a she) can, then I can.
I'm off today but it's rainy. We can go to the Biodome and the Planetarium for free this month as part of our "friends of the botanical gardens" membership. Maybe I'll take a tour of the indoor zoo. If I do, you'll see those pics here. In the meantime, have a look at Georgie and cookie time. Ain't he the cutest?
