Chicken came home today and asked me if I’d done any work to monetize my blog.
“No, I went online shopping.  I negatized at Z.appos.”

However, I added up all the baby stuff I’ve sold and it’s well over $500 (what I can remember and what I kept track of anyway), but you know–then I bought shoes.
Chicken needed new boots for winter and so did the boys and me?  Well, my feet grew juuuuust enough during pregnancy that I’m neither a 7 (my old size), nor a 7.5.
Last week I cleaned out 1/2 my shoes and dropped them off at G.oodwill.
It’s so freaking annoying.  But I can’t afford to replace my entire shoe collection due to a bit of tight-foot-ness, so I’m just going to suck it up with the rest.
Instead I bought some really awesome wool slippers.  I can’t wait for them to arrive.
Maybe if my feet are comfortable, I’ll motivate to educate myself on how to monetize.

    Teehee – you are too funny.

    Add adsense and the pennies might inspire you to do more. I earned about $120 over 8 months!!! So selling your clothes is a much better bet anyway :)

    There are actually books about this. :) If you want to read them and then pass on the wealth of knowledge !
    Thanks in advance.

    I know what you mean on the post-pregnancy shoe issue. Invest in a set of shoe stretchers or stuff them with something like socks, and you can buy something like Magix Shoe Stretch that you apply first. A cobbler told me you could make a solution of rubbing alcohol and water…I think the ratio was something like 30% alcohol.
