|If you don't see a good deal here, you need your eyes checked!|
I know that Kris from PrettyAllTrue thinks she has the answer to all financial woes with The VibraPlunger, and I've read Joann from LaundryHurtsMyFeelings post on "I'm about to be filthy rich."
Estimated costs to raise one child are $220,000. Multiply that amount by how many other children you may have and you could just puke at the thought of how much money you need to make.
And if you don't have children, still, who doesn't need money? We all need to make money. Money.
You may have been thinking "there's no money in blogging, why should I blog, and blog a lot?" and you may be thinking "No, no, I Can't Spend Any More Time Blogging for Nothing. I Need To Spend My Time Making Money." Everyone tells you there is no money in blogging. Do you know why? Because they want you to stop. Close up shop. Drop out. Bring in the shingle. Just give up. That way, there'll be one less of us out there to reap it all in. Yes, they know what I'm about to tell you right here. That nasty rumor that there's no money in blogging, well....
Here is where everything in your life just gets so sweet and good.
The following information is from an article in last week's Wall Street Journal, dated November 12, 2010. WSJ asked, "is it possible to become successful simply from hard work?" You know the answer by the giddiness you sense at my hand, don't you?
The answer is YES.
The theory they propose--and stay with this, because you will be walking on air and sashaying those who-me-I-got-no-problems-no-mo' hips in about 3 minutes--the theory is this:
In England, it's called "the ten year rule," in America, it's known as "the 10,000 hour rule."
To become successful at anything, you must spend 10 years working at it for 20 hours each week.
JUST THINK! We now HAVE to and MUST spend 20 hours a week for 10 years blogging!
Gather in a little closer, and let's just not pretend with each other, alright? Like we don't already spend hours a week doing this? You know we do. That's the beauty of this set up, it doesn't change what we're already doing. IF we're all being honest here.
Minimally, this is the amount of time they say we must put in."Do so, and success is all but inevitable."
Their beautiful words, not mine...can you people hear my maniacal laughter? it's as good as delivered. In a brown uniform, with the doorbell ringing. All I have to do is keep on doing what I'm already doing. Except, now I can do it GUILT-FREE. I am blogging for our future, honey, selflessly tapping away. I am sacrificing today for tomorrow. See what a good wife/parent/friend/partner/person I am? I could be spending time with you, but instead, I am slaving away at the keyboard, perfecting my craft. Getting better with every keystroke.
It is believed that all the hours spent doing just one thing form a skill-based expertise that meshes with growth of knowledge, that will be a valuable asset to an audience just starting out, and your skill based expertise will be sought out. And rewarded. Zippity doo dah.
As Bobby Fischer said when he became the U.S. chess champion nine years after playing chess since age 6, "All of a sudden, I just got good."
Ready, set, see you in 2020--party, my ranch. I'll send my jet to pick you up.
*Add on: As of this afternoon, I've received 3 emails telling me that there is no money in blogging, and I can't be serious. Yes, you're right...I'm not serious. This was just a poke at never making money from blogging, but still putting in the hours because the payment is in the fun, and the people you meet. And, yes, I do know, there is no ranch for me at the end of ten years. Just kidding around here...
