Thank goodness it’s Saturday!
At 6:32 AM, I’m up way too early for Saturday. But that’s because I’m picking up a shift, and that means no $ lost even though I was out a day earlier this week. I would normally have Saturday off, but even if I didn’t, I still wouldn’t have to be up this early. Still, today is a glorious day even though I am still down with the sickness. Spoiler alert: I probably will be, off and on, for another week or two. That’s generally how it goes.
So, I had been stressing out big time for the past week or so. Before that even, but especially for the past week. I couldn’t get into it here because it involves my sons, about whose lives I really don’t need to disclose anything on here without their consent or knowledge. But they both got some good news yesterday, and for that I am extremely thankful. And what that means is maybe now we will live to fight another day out of this financial hell hole we’re currently in.
Oh, and I got some good news, too! I’ve been researching the world of affiliate links and other ways to make this blog profitable. I’ve been accepted by a few affiliate link programs and a paid blogging gig I trust (just not set up completely with that one yet), and this makes me happy.
My evening will be spent doing more research on how to make affiliate links work, because that isn’t something I’ve ever done before. I’ve done paid posts and compensated/sponsored posts, so I know what those involve. But here it is, almost at the end of NaBloPoMo, and I still haven’t really gotten any “real” blog posts up. I need to see if I can’t figure out a way to find my writing voice again before this is all said and done.
