I Have Nothing Special Today...

Sorry, folks.  My circumstances have very seriously changed over the last few days, and I've basically got 6 weeks to get a job, get my act together, and start supporting myself, instead of relying on my parents for money to live and eat.

The result of this is that I am looking for a job.  Also, I have added a few ads to my blog.  I'm really sorry, guys, but I wanted to test out the earning potential of them, and frankly every little bit helps.

I've added on ad bar on the bottom of the side column, one in the footer, and I've also included ads in my feed.  I promise not to make my site completely overwhelmed with them.  You will NOT be seeing ads on every single post.  Or any posts, if I can help it!  I've also reduced the content on the side bar to make it a bit lighter in response to this extra bit of advertising.

Sorry I have nothing super special to post today.  You will just have to be satisfied with the knowledge that I am getting a super special GUEST POST on Sunday, October 31st.  I am participating in Bloggerstock (there's a badge in the sidebar if you're curious), and will be receiving a guest post, while I am writing a guest post for somebody else!  It's going to be lots of fun!

In addition, I was wondering if it would be worth the time and effort to set up a store for my blog... Maybe put together an art book, screen some images on a few tote bags or t-shirts.... Would it  be worth the time and money?  Would you guys be interested?  I don't want you to think I'm selling out...because that's not my goal.  I intend to continue producing quality posts on an (almost) daily basis, and I don't intend to go crazy advertising anything I make.  Right now I just want to gauge your reactions and opinions.  I'm not even sure if I have a solid enough (or large enough) reader-base for such an effort to be worth my time.

That is all.

As always, Dear Readers, I <3 you. ^_^

Regular posts will return tomorrow!


  1. I'll click on your ads so you get a few pennies from them.

  2. I had ads on my blog for a while but I took them down because I didn't make any money from it. I feel you on the job front and wish you luck. It's really tough out there.

  3. Chin up chiquita!
    Can't wait to post your spooky art!!

  5. I completely understand - I don't have a job either :'(

    What is happening in 6 weeks? are you graduating??

  6. :O Dinosaur tote bag PLZ?

  7. Wow sounds a little stressful. Good luck!

  8. @ Dad - I got $0.02 from that click!

    @ Chrissy - I've had to drop one of my classes, so INSTEAD of graduating in six weeks, I'll have another semester of class. So...yeah.... I will have to finish school on my own.

    To everyone, thanks so much for the support! I'll definitely take your comments and ideas in mind for the possible store! ^_^

  9. i would buy a dino tote but i also need mure little felt plushie zoo fiends! the hippo is my favorite. I would totally buy a couple of those from you, you should have a blog with the pictures of those.

    Also in the move i lost my FTW pillow >,< It makes me so sad I WANT ANOTHER! lol why not just take a crappy job for a little while like taco bell. Fast food isn't as horrible as it seems, i did it. It is fast paced and i actually lost weight working at KFC... and i love chicken. Plus seasonal jobs are opening soon as long as you dont mind losing all of your free time and some of your busy time right around exams >,< school is so inconvenient

    Then again you are definitely hot enough to work at high end places with lots of face time, I'd start there.

    *cough* model*cough* just dont go anorexic, i would be sad. Then again I am jealous of your curves...
