Back to blogging
One of my biggest consistent sources of income comes from writing for Best of the Web's blogs (to which I've been linking lately, as the topic of my recent entries have had to do with freelancing). I get paid per post, and checks are cut monthly, which makes it almost like a "real" job. :o) I contribute to the How-To Blog, the Music Blog, and the Parenting Blog; I'm also signed up to write for a literature blog (oh boy!) and a women's issues blog, whenever those get started.
For the first half of the month, I didn't write very much on those blogs, even though I was writing on my personal blog pretty frequently. During the past few days, however, I've been making an effort to write for the paying blogs regularly. I can really use the check I get from them, and if I'm not working on anything else I might as well work on something that pays me.
In any case, I wrote one my entries last night while I was at the hospital waiting for Michael to get done with his MRI, and another two while we were at the Barnes & Noble cafe later in the evening; and I wrote a couple tonight while I was babysitting (after the kids went to bed, of course). This is where having my little laptop comes in handy... I can open it up and turn it on pretty much anywhere, and look pretty darn cool in the process. ;o) And if I have time to kill, I might as well do so while making some money!
