The Latest and Greatest…

So I’ve been busy writing…because Darling, the whole cleaning gig thing is just a fading thing. I think it is tied to the economy, and the economy is NOT better, no matter what those liars in Washington try to say.

I’ve been busy writing, but not here. The reason?

I’m not making a dime on this blog, not a one. In fact, it is costing me. Not a lot, not enough for me to stop having it, but finances are insisting I come up with something else.

So I have. Call it #1 in a long stream of somethings…Bubblews.

It seems crazy to me that you can earn a penny for every view, a penny for every Like and a penny for each comment and actually, you know, earn a wage of any kind. But build enough connections, enough of a following and you can do it. So that’s what I’ve been doing. I’m writing an average of eight posts a day on Bubblews and it has earned me more than a little pocket change.

And because my cleaning biz is fading fast (I’ve lost about $400 per month in the past month to clients needing to tighten their own purse strings) I have decided to GO…FOR…IT and become a full-time writer.

Go me!

i’m not canceling my remaining clients. Not yet, anyway. I still need that money! But I will be posting almost exclusively at Bubblews. Now if you are a member of Bubblews, you will find me under the username of GeneralMalcontent (all one word). But you can still come here, because I’m going to be posting links to all of my parenting and education Bubblews posts here as well. And on Facebook. Follow The Homeschool Advocate on Facebook for real-time updates and links.

Some are funny, some are reminiscent, educational, current state of affairs and more. In other words, you will be getting more content than ever before, but you will have to follow the links to get to them.

I hope you will. Here is a rundown of some of the relevant Bubblews posts I have written in the past couple of weeks…
