making money at blogging

I don't ask for tips off ads for any cash on my blog. I do what I do for free. I don't want your fucking money. I've SENT money to other bloggers because I appreciate their work, but I don't panhandle. Wanna make me rich? All almost 700,000 of you unique visititors send a dollar the the American Diabetes Association. That'll make a noise if you say it came from Acidman.

I've been flat-assed broke and nigger-rich. I enjoyed the rich part better, but I have to asdmit that money has never motivated me in life. Money is a token, a way to keep score, and it ain't worth a damn until you spend it.

Now that I am unemployed, I may have to change my tune amd beg for money on the side walk. I'm a long way from that point yet, but I'm already coming up with some ideas. A "BITE ME" tee-shirt. A coffee cup that says "Bloody Mary" on the front. An addreess to some real geek who bails you out of shit just because you ask him to and he asks no favors for the work. I want to print cards and send them off to ask ME what to do when my computer fucks up. I'll Respond by "Talk to my my geek. Because I'm reallly no good at this shit.

The geek always comes through for me, and he does it only becaue he likes me He ain't in it for the money, either.

If you won't take money for your blogging, will you take money for lessons in good ol' southern cooking? I STILL cannot make fried chicken worth a damn!! IF you could teach me to make good fried chicken AND gravy (as opposed to paste), I might even be able to talk to my DH into becoming your back up computer geek.. Deal?

My nephew used to be my geek, but he's all growed up now and workin' for the University on their websites. Another young geek is leaving, too. I was afraid I just might have to break down and read some instruction manuals if I could keep my eyes from glazing over and become my own geek.

Instead, I have found it usually works really well if I casually mention that I am thinking of finding a geek on account of my husband is not capable of doing the geeky thing that needs to be done, in which case he will not quit until my geek requirements have been met.

I am going to have to put that man on a new diet tomorrow. You can never take good enough care of your geek.
