Hey everyone, so we’re just about three weeks into 2017. I hope things are going well for you. It’s been a while since I wrote an actual blog post, and I feel like it’s time to start getting back into that, even if it’s just a short and sweet 300 words. I feel like I should maybe do some resolutions or something, but nah…
What have I been up to?
Well, last year I finally followed through on trying to become a syndicated newspaper cartoonist. It didn’t happen, but after a lifetime of thinking and wishing and procrastinating, I’m glad I finally drew up some comics and sent them in to King Syndicate.
You gotta try, right?
So, last year I drew a couple dozen Jimmy Did It comic strips and submitted them in October. It’s been more than three months with no response, so I think it’s safe to say they weren’t interested.
After that, I shifted back toward freelance writing again for some content mills like Textbroker and ContentRunner.
Last summer I made a few hundred bucks doing that, then shifted to comics for a few months, then back to writing. I made a few hundred more from October to December, and so far here in January I’ve earned about $130.
Problem is, I’m on the edge of burnout again, so I’m considering whether to keep trying to push through that or to just take a break for a bit and focus on something else. I haven’t decided, but I need money ASAP, so I’ll probably keep trying to push through.
Getting In Shape
I also completely stopped going to the gym for the past several months, so I need to get back into that. Well, actually I did go a few days ago, and I was hoping that would turn into a daily thing again…but that also didn’t happen. Blaaaahhhh…
Okay, that’s basically it.
Sorry this post is so boring.
When did blogging get so hard?
