Reblog: Weird Ways to Make Money As a Writer

Ran across this in the reader this morning. It’s a little bit funny, but also a little bit inspiring/encouraging. 🙂 Enjoy! 💜

My hands were shaking. I was quitting a job with AmeriCorps earlier than planned, and felt like I was back in my last semester of college (minus Pub …

Anyone else having issues with Jetpack Social?

Yes, I’m sharing this as a blog post because—well, why not? It’s probably more likely to find its way to fellow WordPress/Jetpack users than other methods. 🤷🏻‍♀️ This post is part gripe/vent and part please help me!

I’m in the U.S. and yes, I do vote in our political elections. I think everyone who is eligible to vote should strive to be duly informed on the candidates and issues at hand and then vote. That extends to both local and national elections...


Another short and basic poem born of thoughts about... well, pretty much *everything* going on in the world around us.
