Dateline Pittsburgh: 1 February 2017
It’ around 6:00 a.m. and still dark outside and I’m down in the lobby of my apartment building in what I called the Wi-Fi Room working on the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette but I plan to be at Armand’s in Little Italy around 10:30 a.m. (on this overcast day in Pittsburgh with a high around 39 with the possibility of a light snow fall) drinking a large mug of beer and hopefully one or more of the regulars will drift in and I’ll shoot the breeze and glance at the television at my end of the bar (the regular bartender likes game shows) as I keep an eye on Liberty Avenue…
One of my younger brothers (the one who lives in Happy Valley which is Penn State territory) who is financially the most successful of all of the siblings (during Penn State home football games he and his wife sit in the enclosed VIP booth with other well-connected Penn State alumni) phoned me a couple of days ago and we had a very pleasant conversation that included politics and The Gazette for all my siblings phone me long distance because they know that I wouldn’t be able to pay my phone bill if I used my long-distance phone service to phone them but now since I recently cancelled the service to save money I don’t have long-distance phone service anymore anyway…
There was no sense in holding on to it if I was afraid to use it because it would explode my phone bill and now that long-distance phone service money stays in my pocket every month (along with the money I’m saving every month from cancelling my Internet service) and I’m happy to announce that yesterday I sold another subscription to Mr Skin/Naked News which took my account over the $50.00 necessary for the company to release a check to me by snail mail and they will release a check to me for $84.00 the first day of March which is the first time since September of 2014 when The Gazette became a part of the Mr Skin/Naked News advertising network that I have gotten two checks back to back: $113.00 this month and the $84.00 for March…
After about 15 years of blogging and several failed blogs and with this site being the third version (yes that’s right) of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette it seems my dream of getting a check from Mr Skin/Naked News at least every other month is within my grasp making me in my own eyes a “successful” professional blogger which I think adds credibility to my claim of offering useful hands on insights into how to make money from your blog if making money from your blog is your goal too…
So if you also want to make money from your blog I encourage you to bookmark The Gazette (the most original “girlie magazine” on the Internet) or to take out a free email subscription today as I continue to blog about my life as a retired baby boomer who is also a professional blogger…
Well this will be a relatively short blog post because the first day of every month is a busy time for me (especially in the morning) with going to the beer distributor down the street and then a trip across the avenue to the dollar store to begin re-stocking my food supply (the last few days I’ve eaten nothing but Ramen Noodles with a little pasta mixed in for a little nutrition) and then back to the dollar store for house hold supplies and then I have to write out checks for bills and to balance my check book (I was overdrawn a few days ago which is just a waste of money so I have to tighten up on my hand accounting and make better use of online banking to double check it) before strolling or taking a bus into Little Italy for that first beer of the month at Armand’s and the start of my ten-day leave from blogging…
