Can you believe that we are nearing the end of March already? I sure can’t! March has been pretty decent to me.
I still haven’t hit my $300 mark, but I have turned down quite a few opportunities to make money online. I don’t want to start out by accepting less than I feel that I or this blog is worth. I will stick to my guns and gut feelings!
However, I do have a few good opportunities in the works, now I am just waiting to see how those pan out. Also, you can now find me contributing to Fat Wallet. My first post – Ten Ideas for a Fabulously Frugal Easter – Check it Out 😉
Divorce Drama Update
The ex’s new girlfriend just got kicked out of rehab for failing a drug test. He seemed very upset about it and claims that he is done with her. I believe that he will stop seeing her just for the fact that he didn’t try to hide her getting kicked out of rehab from me. Apparently he has moved on quick, he already has girl number 2 lined up.
I am just thankful he is done with girl number 1. I could hardly stand the fact that my kids might have ended up being exposed to a heroin addict.
Other than that we have been very civil, actually pretty friendly.
Starting a Blog
In a few short months this blog has given me light to new opportunities and a platform to share my feelings and thoughts and connect with like-minded people. It has been great. If you ever need any help getting a blog set up or just don’t know where to start I recommend reading Jeremy’s Guide to Starting a Blog.
He has been one of the most helpful bloggers to me. Not just with this blog but also with my first. He has walked me through several technicalities I have experienced. He definitely knows what he is doing!
