A Brief Update

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.

The Five People You Meet in Every Airport Check-In Line

The Five People You’ll Friend on Facebook

Eight Songs that Should be Banned from Karaoke Bars

The Seven Tackiest Souvenirs of All Time

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.
