money and blog business

There is a person I know that always complains about not having any money. In my opinion, this person doesn't do a whole lot to help their financial situation and I find it very difficult to have pity on them sometimes because MY GOODNESS! WHY CAN'T THEY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BESIDES COMPLAIN? It's not like they're uneducated or incapable of getting and holding a significant-enough job. It's just that they're MAKING CHOICES that contribute to their current financial status.

Over the last few months we've really struggled financially. I've found myself complaining about it a lot because I've obsessed and worried over it a lot. I've started to consider going back to work part-time or full-time this fall. Still in the thinking process though. Right now I'm just concentrating on not bringing other people down because I realize that the choices I've made have affected my situation, not the choices of someone else.

Anyway, tonight I finally got to looking at the information for ads I placed on this blog at the end of last year. I finally figured out how to see how much money I'm making off of them and I have to say that I was pleasantly suprised that it wasn't a number really close to zero. Of course, the ads don't do much, but at this point something is better than nothing. So I'm pleased.

Thanks to all of you who click over and send me a few pennies each time. It's much appreciated.

And if I start whining too much about being po' then I declare you a winner of this Slap Bet .

I'll keep clicking on your ads, but I want to know how much money you're making :)

So, retard that I may be, all I have to do is click on the BlogHer ad on the right hand side and it will give you a few pennies each time? If thats all I have to do, I'll do it more often to help you out!

I feel your pain. Daniel and I are on an extremely strick budget and it just kills me when some of my friends complain about money when they both work and drive fancy new cars with large car loans and are constantly buying whatever they want without thinking about it. Then they turn around and complain. AHHHHH!

I could go back to work and make just as much as Daniel makes and we could be totally financial secure and not sturggle as much. But I LOVE staying home and it just means to much to both of us that I can stay home. I think it is totally worth it to struggle financial for the benefit of staying home and I wouldn't give it up for anything.

One way I have found to make extra money is Ebay. You would not believe what you can sell on Ebay and how much people will pay. Also it is a great way to get rid of that yardsale stuff that keeps piling up.
