Having a Little success at

I am really getting a good experience at I have actually made a couple of dollars.  I am really hoping to be able to make a hundred or two a month.  My first week with a little extra effort had me on the top five list for that week.  I haven't been able to do as much this week and probably next week.  We are moving to a new house so it's really hectic.  I will try to get three out this week if I can.

It's really nerve wracking to move.  My poor husband is a basket case.  I have two big zits.  I haven't had a zit in years.  I know it's stress.  I hope my husband makes it through this without any lasting traumatic effects.

Trying My Hand at

Yes I am back.  I still keep my stance on pretentiousness and with me you won't get that.  What you see is what you get.  No lies, no pretense.  I am trying out  It's a news reporting site.  I have even been given a title,  "Jackson Health News Examiner." I guess small things excite me but I am really excited and I have made more money with them in three weeks than I have in almost a year with those others.

If you don't believe me about the pretentiousness of some of those so called Writing Community Sites try one and let me know.  Forgive me for waffling a little bit though. I did learn a lot and I have made some really great online friends (unpretentious ones).

Pretentiousness and Internet Authors

I have begun to believe that most people who write on the internet are pretentious and untruthful.  I say this only with about a year into trying my hand at this.  The pretentious ones are just that.  They make up the facts and make themselves look so very important when they are usually the opposite of what they really are on the other side of the keyboard.

Having membership on several writing sites I have noticed two things.  One, most of these sites are full of spammers.  Two, the rest of them are scammers and liars.  When I say pretentious I am not kidding these people are so full of pretentious notions and really just trying to get your money.  I have made only one sale on a piece and that was to a small magazine.

This will probably be the last time I make a note on this site for a while.  I am rather burned out on the whole blogger, internet author thing.  My husband warned me about this happening and I thought he was crazy.  I guess he was right for once.
