I don't want to be rich. I just want to be able to buy Wendy's frosties whenever I want. And a paper. To check the scores.

I am supposed to wake my roommate in a few hours. It's only 10 am, but he asked if I could wake him at 2 pm. Normally you wouldn't have to ask a guy who is up at 10 am if he is still going to be awake at 2. You could be probably be safe to assume that he is going to be awake for the day.

But not around here. Sometimes I go to bed at 7pm wake at 2 am and stay up till lunch. Who knows. And my roommate isn't much better. It's like we drift along in some timeless quantum state. The house that time forgot.

So that's why I decided to blog today. Just to keep my mind occupied. Give myself something to do. Don't go expecting something great from me.

I saw this blogger today who claims to make like 400 dollars a week on his blog. Which is $396 more than I've ever made on this site. I think his blog is supposed to be about his work at a video store.

He writes 80 posts in two days so you know that's a hell of a lot more work than I want to get into. But it got me thinking. I may just end up trying it. Plaster all kinds of Google ads while I'm at it.

I always have ideas about new blogs that I must write. Even though I hardly take care of the three I have. Video blogger guy has 6 blogs. Just think. 3 more blogs. Got any ideas? You can always leave me a message on that SnapVine player that I know nothing about. If any of my female readers want to leave me a dirty message that's ok too!

Dude, I can't even write enough on my one blog. Why do you think I've sub-contracted to the likes of you?

Oh, and ads will not grace my blog . . . ever?

i heartily agree with your point of view. I deplore the commercialization of our society.

But a brother gotta eat. If I could make me some money I would. I think.

hey...just replying about your inquiry:

Yes Jim Bakker (or pronounced baker)

The guy that was thrown into prison for fraud.

He wrote a tell all book of what happened, and how he was wrong.

It's a huge book, and I've been reading it since I'm fascinated by the whole thing.

As the world's number 1 source of Jessica Hawn (my bathos site) news I do have familiarity with the story.

I was surprised anyone was reading that book though.

It must be a hoot.

for the record, I made 400 dollars over 5 blogs, not just one blog.

video store blues is my least paid blog. I made that money over a 48 hour period writing with the company

so split the 400 over 5 blogs and the work doesn't seem too much.

A normal week is roughly 100 to 150 for, but you have to be online all the time to get that kind of money.

i hope that kind of clears it up a little.
