Update Update Read All About It (Giggle)

It's been almost 4 months since I updated this blog.

Part of the reason is that I just don't have much time for PTR these days -- or surveys, or apps, or traffic exchanges, or safelists, or paid to click, or or, LOL --so I am not clicking, surfing, etc nearly as much as I used to (no clickie, no surfie, no surveys, no submitting upgraded ads, no this, no that, no the other thing equals no money, or at least not as much as I was making online--which was still peanuts compared to what I make offline!)

Many of my posts are saying "this site has paid me this much" or "I am waiting at this site for this much for this long" or "this site hasn't paid me in forever" and when you aren't very active you aren't reaching payout very often so there's nothing to post.

I actually started to do one of those "who has paid me in blah blah blah" posts a few days ago and realized that it would take me literally hours to retrieve all the information since I haven't updated consistently since 2016. I literally said the hell with this I have better things to do LOL and shut down the page.

. I do still enjoy clicking/surfing, and I really LOVE taking surveys--but I work full time now and my job is very physically demanding. By the time I get home every night (anywhere from 9:45 pm to 10:30 pm) I have generally walked anywhere from 9600 to 12000 steps and all I want to do is have my dinner, pet my cats, and go to sleep.

I bought a Kindle recently with Amazon gift certificates that I earned doing PTR, surveys, etc and I do a bit of clicking on my breaks/lunch 1/2 hour at work but not enough to make payout very often anywhere.

July was yet another month of not submitting my upgraded ads--here's hoping that August will be different since I now have money to spend on upgrades and affiliate pages.

That's another change in my life -- I am finally making decent money (well, decent for this area) around $2000.00 per month before taxes. There's a trade-off though in that I don't have the time or energy to be on the computer all the time.

Once I evicted my roommate (more on that later) there was no internet access at home, and the three hours of computer access per day at the library didn't really give me much time to click (oh let's be honest here I'd rather play games on Facebook, LOL).

The potential roommate evaporated into thin air when we discovered that she was allergic to my cats, and I decided NO MORE ROOMMATES EVER unless and until I get a significant other.

I'm also trying really hard to get healthy -- walking a lot (used the rest of the Amazon gift certificates for a FitBit which I am actually using), taking the stairs instead of the elevator 9 times out of 10, eating 'better for me' food (have given up soda--it's been 33 days--and ice cream--22 days--completely, cut way down on chocolate), eating regular meals not waiting all day and then pigging out.
