Thur & Friday… Good & Bad-ish and writing before coffee.


It is 8am on Saturday… And I haven’t had coffee yet…

Bring me mai coffee or I poopz on the bed ©2011It’s brewing.  But you should be warned that I am awake at an ungodly hour of the morning and I am pre-caffeine.

Goodness knows what my fingers will end up typing.  Jus’ sayin…

I woke up hungry this morning.  I haven’t woken up hungry in a long time.  So something must be changing in my body.  I’ll count that one up as a “good” thing.

Just because I’m still pre-coffee (still brewing… …I can smell it all the way from the kitchen) and in a grumpy mood, I’m going to whine about my sinuses.  I thought I was coming down with a cold.  I may be but it may also be allergies.  I’ve got this awful drainage which is causing me to cough this icky gunk.  All clear so far so no infection but it is DISGUSTING!

I’ll be right back.  The coffee should be done by now.

Ok, folks, something really cool is going on — I have a chance at a real, honest to goodness, money-making article!  Woot!  Yeeeeeeeee haaawwwwwwww!!!!!!

Those who have followed my posts here know that a little over a year ago I lost my job as a librarian.  Since that time I have been trying to switch from “unemployed” to “self-employed” and one of the ways I’ve been doing that is to write online articles over at Squidoo.

They say in the “writing business” that you should write what you are passionate about.  For me that mainly means dance, which unfortunately is NOT just a huge “money making” topic for writing.

BUT…  I do like books as well.  And, I do like the Rachel Maddow Show. And I noticed something interesting the other day when I looked at the “Top 100” lenses at Squidoo….  TWO of the Top 15 “lenses” which is what Squidoo calls “articles” are about BOOKS!  Now there is something that I can write about which I also can be passionate about.

I was a librarian after all.  🙂

So, I created a new lens:  Books and Songs from the “Rachel Maddow Show” (Current Season) and I published it on Friday the 12th in the wee hours of the morning.  Since that time here is how it has ranked: Read the rest of this entry
