I managed to get in some more photoshoots recently with Brittany Rose and that always cheers me up and I've enjoyed doing some work on various projects for others recently. I started my own new blog, FOUR-COLOR SHADOWS and I'm keeping that one up pretty well. I've got plenty of great stuff for the Wood and Morrow blogs but haven't felt like writing much so it's been mostly pictures or links there. I'm way behind (again) on YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR LAST PICTURE but I have TROG, SEXTETTE and DR. COOK'S GARDEN so hopefully soon. I even have some news I've neglected to post on my Christa Helm blog. Add to this my daily (more or less) MAKIN' LINKS column at I.T.C.H. and it's not like I've abandoned you guys out there in blogland. Still, I feel guilty. I need to do more. Donations in the old PayPal box on the upper right of this page would help. A paying job would help even more. I am, in all modesty, a good writer, editor, researcher, transcriptionist, ghostwriter, photographer and voiceover announcer/actor. Not much call for any of that around here, though. Last week I was turned down for the closest thing to a real job I've had in more than a year--working for Dollar General. After a three hour online assessment, I received an email saying I didn't meet their minimum requirements...after 25 years in retail management! That didn't help my funk any, y'know?
Okay, just whining now, I guess...and this was never meant to be that type of blog. Since the beginning of 2009, I've lost my job, my health, my closest friend, my confidence, my self-esteem and much of my savings...but I've also met many new online friends and enjoyed my family very much. I think I've built something here and I promise I'm not going to abandon it. I just wish there was some way to make money on it.
Again, if you like this blog, consider a PayPal donation to keep it going. Thank you. More good stuff soon!
