I don’t know how long it has been since I posted. I’m too scared to look.
G’day its just me again…
This blog is old. So I thought I would revive it with a new topic. I’m calling this How To Make Money. I’m not sure for how long or how regular the updates will be.
This is going to be kind of a lifestyle blog. But I will try not to be too narcissistic and will try to offer some useful informations.
Maybe information on How To Make Money, like some of them internet millionaire money gurus. But, there is a pretty big catch.
I was the first in my entire family to finish school completely. My sister was the first to actually pass NCEA, but that’s another story.
I have a Certificate in Arts and Media from NMIT. It took me three years to get it because I was actually trying for a Degree. But I am happy with what I learned at polytech. I went there to learn about art.
I spent the next 7 years on the dole and volunteering at various places. Right now I’m in an opshop for the SPCA. I’ve never worked in a shop before and it’s for the little animals so I am achieving something there.
I can almost count the number of my official diagnosis on both hands. Maybe one day I will. They are mild enough that I can work. Where this ‘work’ is would be another question entirely.
Considering my experience and abilities my options are basically minimum wage shop floor, and maccas. I’m aiming for part time.
So here is the catch:
I don’t actually have any money.
I don’t know how to make any.
I am giving you this for free.
Meanwhile I’ve been working on various art projects and writing. None have made any money, let alone put food on the table. Relying on it as a main source of income while on the dole is deadly and suicidal.
But then one day I was hit by some epiphany. I don’t know where it came from or why it happened now. I’ve been needing a massive change for a while, and it needs to happen by the time I turn 30 (three years to go!).
I decided I can’t live like this anymore. I suddenly had a few ideas of where to start. This blog being one of them. I don’t know where this will go or even if I continue after this very post. I’m hoping it will document my journey to somewhere.
This blog isn’t just about money.
I’m writing this to (hopefully) improve myself. And maybe I can use these improvements outside of money.
And there is another catch:
I would rather not spend hours talking about things I will never do. Which is why I won’t update much. Some of us have to work to put food on the table. And if this blog isn’t putting food on the table, you get it when I damn post it!
I have a few personal goals which might be a good start.
To have basic needs met without the benefit.
Eventually, to not have to Live to Work.
A small house.
You need goals, people! There must be something you wouldn’t mind having.
I’m a Special Snowflake. I’m different from the other Get Rich Quick Gurus on the internet.
Firstly, I will specifically attempt to not just talk about myself. But this is a personal-life-blog, so get over it.
I will tell you all the secrets to buying a mansion and a Lamborghini! Just give me $300 and you can have it all! But there’s a catch:
I just want a small house with a garage, because we might as well keep it simple from here. And there will be no car at all due to my boycott of the motorist industry which might be another blog one day.
So no, I guess I won’t show you how to get the mansion or the Lamborghini. I will show you how to rent of your parents and then join Freemasonry just to find the adult tricycle you desperately needed for mobility reasons after a couple years of searching. That’s another blog.
But I will tell you the secrets of them money gurus. How they earned enough to rent that car and rent that mansion. Millions of people are paying them $300 each. Guess what for. Lol. All that adds up. They made their millions by telling people their get rich quick schemes to earning millions. You’re paying for those rents! And that’s another blog post!
But its free to read this blog. You don’t need to give me anything for any of this information. There might be ads on the site one day though.
This is about How to Make Money. And I need to make money.
I will show you my secrets. By actually DOING them. I am going to show you what happened and what I actually think about it. What worked and what didn’t.
And there may be other topics on this blog as well if I need to write some massive novel about something.
Which makes this some kind of journal. So don’t show anyone the bits about boys, I know where you live. (not really, you might have to remind me)
And this is also a creative outlet. So that’s nice. I could do with another one that doesn’t pay me.
Pray for me, that I will get some more ideas for blogs and stuff and actually write them down. I hope I can write something useful one day.
Thank you for reading. I hope I find the future of this blog useful and I guess you might too. Can’t make any promises though. This has been a Get-Rich-Quick blog from someone who has no money.
