Cats, Capitalists, and Transformations…

Capitalism and Transformations

Cat - Cash Kitty - 20 Dollar Bill (CC)

I have to confess that I’m beginning to feel like a budding capitalist.  Oops!  I’m in business!  🙂

Also, I also have to confess that I’m feeling a little bit guilty about the preponderance of “Gee look at what I’m doing online” kind of posts which have appeared on my blog as of late.

But before all six of you who are reading this go all “99% on my not so skinny butt” let me connect the dots as to why me doing what I’m doing hooks up with me doing what I was doing.”  Still with me?  I hope so! LOL

This whole blog is a record of what is going on in my life as I try and move from

“out of shape, unemployed librarian” to “fit healthy in-shape full time writer and dance instructor”

At first the mission wasn’t so concrete and it certainly didn’t have the “unemployed” bit!  At first, I had a job, I had a blog, I had a very large body and I was VERY Stressed out and UNHAPPY

ai haz a happee! ©Well, now for the first time in ages, I’m happy; I’m not stressed, well not much anyway.   I still have the blog and the large body, but the 9-5 job is gone and my new job is transforming that body into something that I’m proud to call “my body.” However, to do that, well it takes money. *Siiiiiiiiigggggggggghhhhh*

I literally did just sigh as I typed this.  I kid you not!  I did!  I really did just sigh.  Now I’m smiling at myself for being silly and sharing that tidbit with you but hey, this is me we’re talking about.  LOL  And we all know I’m a little bit silly.  Ok, sometimes, I’m a lot silly

But I digress…  (yes, I do that a lot, but that’s how my brain is wired)

I’m a writer! I’m a Squid! Woo Hoo!

Squidoo LogoOk, ok, I guess some explanation is needed.

A friend of mine contacted me the other day and said “Hey Tony, do you know just how fabulous your writing is?”  I blushed and replied, “Thank you you’re too kind…”  (while secretly wishing she would pay me more compliments…duh!)

She went on to say that a lot of the article s that I’ve done here on my blog actually could make me some money!  And since she knew that I’m currently unemployed as a librarian and trying hard to turn my passion for dancing and writing into a real live “make enough to pay the bills” kind of endeavor, she suggested that  I create an account at

Which I did and voila…  I’m a writer!  An unpaid writer as of this moment, but I’m following in a time-honored tradition…  😉

For those who are not familiar with Squidoo, the basic concept is that it combines the social media aspects of the Internet with the traditional aspects of the informative article.

Face it we all know stuff.  All of us have topics on which we can Read the rest of this entry
