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.
