Here’s a recap of everything that’s happened since I started neglecting this blog (Um, yeah…Sorry ’bout that): My mom came to visit, I went zip-lining, took up salsa dancing, toured a coffee plantation, visited a hippie village, came down with a bad, bad case of food poisoning and then moved three hours away to a city whose name I can’t pronounce (It’s called Quetzaltenango, in case you were wondering).
Ok, so now that we’re all up-to-date, let me fill you in on the real reason for this post: Some shameless self-promotion.
Although I haven’t written much on this site, I’ve been writing a crap ton for Associated Content, Bukisa and HubPages. I figure that so long as I’m unemployed and writing round the clock anyway, (I’m also in the process of completing a novel I’ve been working on for the last few years) I might as well get paid for it. And although I love this blog, sometimes it’s hard to justify spending hours holed up in coffee shops uploading photos onto a blog that hasn’t (and probably never will) earn me a cent.
Not that I’m quitting blogging or anything. I’m just trying to focus my creative attention onto other projects for a bit. So without further ado, here are a few of the more entertaining pieces I’ve written over the last few weeks.
Please (and here’s the part where I grovel) please, please, please click on the links. They’re pay-per-pageview content, which means that I only make money (a whopping one fourth of a cent per visitor) if people actually read what I’ve written. So read them! And rate them! And if you’re feeling especially ambitious, leave a comment on them. I know you won’t be able to see me, but just trust that in a damp, moldy iron-barred room somewhere in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, a poor, curly-haired girl will be very very happy if you do.
