The Search for Funds or Quest to Buy Blogger's Books

 I've been on and off for a couple of days, so I'm asking for forgiveness for not catching up on reading and comments. Enough grovelling, let's get to this post.

Before that, this bear also begs your forgiveness. From Eric Kilby's Flickr
 There are a few of my favorite bloggers that have published books. I am such a great reader and friend that I want to buy those. Unfortunately, I have little to no money for that pursuit, so I've been looking for a part-time job to afford my new addiction.

I have not done well at  recent interviews. I used to ace those things right off of the bat before, but this time I'm flubbing hardcore. It's as if my subconscious is taking control and making sure that my search for work continues. My work ethic is something carved from granite, and my ego seems to have been transformed into blasa wood.

 Looking in the classifieds today, I found something right up my alley. "Brick wall artist needed". I'm not sure if they want a graffiti artist or a mural expert. Either way, I'll try it out and see if I can beautify a spot on wall somewhere, and in turn, get some money to buy some of the books that my fellow bloggers have published.
Maybe I'll be good enough to make something this eye-catching. via Tony Haex's flicker
 So, I'm off to the hunt for monetary gain. Remember, one man's chump change is another man's life savings.

 Before I leave you, I'll upload one of my last images. A radioactive ninja star goat's head burr.

Sometimes known as the ninja cockleburr of intense pain

  2. Good luck on the job hunt.

    There are so many great writer in blogland that you must get your hands on a few.

    Or you can write your own book, sell it on blogger, then use the proceeds to purchase other bloggers books. It's a vicious cycle. :)

  10. Jobs tend to be an elusive prey. But I'm sure you can nab a part-time gig that'll net the change needed to show the monetary support you want to your blogger buds.
