I don't know how long I will be able to stand this template and colour scheme. I like it for the present.

I am groggy, thanks to the Advil PM I took last night to help me sleep. I have trouble sleeping when I am ill and it knocks me out but it also gives me weird dreams and I feel as if I am pushing through pea soup in the morning. Blech. But I need rest if I am going to get over this stupid cold, so...

The pets are taken care of for the morning, I am drinking copious amounts of coffee and trying to decide if I feel well enough to swatch, or not. I have a bit of a backlog of polishes I need to get swatched and photographed. I am thinking of monitizing my polish blog. I always thought that I would not, that it was a passion/hobby blog. I am not anti-PR or anything... I work with companies from time to time, tho I am choosy. I only work with those I know or feel to be reputable and of good quality. I won't whore myself out for samples. On the other hand, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if I could get in with more PR companies. It isn't that I am trolling for free stuff but purchasing the majority of my product is tough on the old pocketbook.

And that is where monitizing comes in. If I can make some money off of my blog from views and ad revenue I might have enough to help defray my expenses a bit. Buy more product, grow my collection and allow me to branch out a bit as I have been longing to do. Maybe I could even make enough to buy the new camera and some photography equipment I have been lusting after. I am not one of the "big dog" bloggers in the polish/beauty realm but my blog has a decent following, readership and pretty good numbers, overall. I also have a page ranking that is equal to some of the big dogs so maybe it would be worth a shot.I need to stop being such a chicken and stop thinking that I am not good enough and that I can't do it. That is a huge obstacle to me.

Shit. I just used up the last of my creamer. This will be the last cup of coffee until I can get to the store. I love coffee but I don't do it black. I like it somewhat sweet and very creamy. Probably why I adore cappuccinos and lattes so very, very much. LOL

Okay time to get on with my morning, such as it will be, today. Too much activity leave me feeling a little swirly in the noggin and makes me cough so I am not going to push myself.


  1. I think you should go for it. Your polish blog ROCKS. You found your niche and you need to make it work for you. I've missed you here sooooo much. You can't even imagine...

    1. I have been reading you in my Google Reader over there. :)

      Thank you so much for your encouragement and I think I am going to go for it. Can't hurt to try. :D

  2. Howdy! I wondered how you were doing. Here's to a new year and new us' that a word?

  3. I hope you feel better soon. I was sick a couple of weeks ago. I hope that's it for the season. I like your new look here.

  4. First feel better soon-I am home sick again too. I am so glad to see you back. I of course have been stalking on the polish blog-thinking of you as I watched a promo video for the new sand polish from OPI. Yet, I am glad you are back here. I am trying to get better at blogging as well, I know it helps me so I need to get on that more! Welcome back!

  5. PS i like the blog color but I think it needs some bling!
