    Another hunt and gather day.

    Not sure how I feel about the title of this one smile

      Oops, sorry about that. I feel like a person with a tin cup though...

      I can't seem to get 2 hubs published.

      I'm currently dealing with an apparently uncooperative federal agency.

      I have a negative cash flow and my spreadsheet says I'm doomed before the end of the year.

      My place is becoming a mess due to my lack of attention.

      And so on...

      Today is the day I'll fight the good fight and try dealing with all this.

    I was trying to make you smile by pretending to mind the title. The 'lot' of internet writers is not an easy one at the moment is it! I can think of at least five people on here and other sites that really are in need of a bit of luck with income from their writing. They are all skilled writers and to see the tide turn in their favor would be good news. smile

      You succeeded. smile

      Here's a thought that should perk some people up...

      Just $3 a day is a thousand bucks a year.

    Why is it every time my traffic improves, my CPM drops dead?

    One time I had a internet 'tin cup' - it was a paypal tip jar. Hehehehe- noboday tipped me except my sister Joanne - she gave me $20!~!. I called her up and said quit spending money on impulse like that. I thanked her while scolding her.

    Too bad I can't put a tip jar or other scripts on my profile page. I would have dozens.

    I wonder how long the political frenzy is going to last...

    I'm perking up! Am progressing forward again. Can't keep a good Hubber down... big_smile

    Today, I found my muse again.  I was steadily typing away.  I got a great start for a new hub. Then, I cranked up the classical music and started sketching again...(had put down the pencil for way too long.) I believe that I am an illustrator first, writer second.  So what some call writer's block, I get that with my drawing/sketching.  I am thankful that my source of income does not depend on my musings...otherwise I truly would be a "starving artist".

      I've come up with 6 hubs in the last month. For me, that is truly astounding.

    Well, I'm going to remember Tin Cup Tuesday for awhile. My entire list got solved. Go figure... Just goes to show, never give up hope, just keep pecking away at things.
