Not a Blogger

Ok, so I'm not a blogger really.   Actually, I totally suck at blogging.

I didn't realize until after I started reading blogs that there are people who are referred to as "mommy bloggers".  These are some serious bloggers!  I think a lot of them make a lucrative income from ads, reviews and endorsements of various products.  I don't have a problem with that but I don't want a blog to sound like a mini-commericial for things that moms should purchase.

I wouldn't mind something I could do at home to bring in a little extra cash.  Matter of fact I NEED something like that but there are really not any opportunities for that stuff anymore.  Something is going to have to give in the next year or so if I want to keep my kids in their private school.  That's the most important thing to me right now.  That they continue on with the great education they are getting now.

When my adult kids were little I actually did have a "work at home" job.  It wasn't a scam either.  I worked for FoxMeyer Drug Company entering pharmacy claims into their database and reconciling them.  It paid well, I could work my own hours, and only went into the office maybe once a week to pick up work.  I would KILL for a job like that now.  *sigh*  Anyway, a work at home job would be wonderful.  It's not that I don't want to go out and find a "real" job it's just that I'd like to have something that would work around my kids' school schedule.  I enjoy the volunteer work I do at their school, I love being available to drive for field trips, I love being the one to drop them off at school and the same one who picks them up and takes them home afterwards.  I love after-school snacks and hearing about their day etc etc .  In a perfect world I guess.

That doesn't exist now or in the near future.

Well it's time to take these kiddos to school.  Maybe I'll post to my blog again soon....?  I can't make any promises.

Extra cash would be nice.

I really don't make money on my blog. Some bloggers make a couple thousand per month on ads though.

I'm not a blogger, either, though I've decided to give it a go. I don't know how people make money on their blogs... first I would have to locate some readers! Heh.

Let me know if you find the perfect "mom" job. I wrestle with that, too. I would like to contribute financially to my family, but it's so important to be home if the kids need me.

Just got my check for $500.

Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can make filling out paid surveys at home...

So I took a video of myself getting paid over $500 for filling paid surveys to set the record straight once and for all.
