Lighter blogging this week

I have a couple of paying projects coming up this week, so I may not be able to blog as frequently. Please enjoy the links on the right if you're looking for bloggy goodness.

Also, I would note the following: I am about to submit an invoice for my most recent paid writing at a rate of about 53 cents (U.S.) a word (and that's low, given that I am charging a flat rate for the article and wrote more than is allotted for it). Based on that, last week, given that this blog delivered about 5,000 words, readers received nearly $2,700 worth of value--for free.

We're giving people.

Wow - I'm feeling truly priviledged... I wonder what value would be placed on mine... I might actually have to pay people to come read my blog! :D

We'll be having a PBS-style pledge drive in March. It will consist of us starting posts, but interrupting them with pledge appeals before we finish them ... a day later.

I just clicked on the "foil head" picture next to your blog (by the way, I do that all the time -- cover my head in foil, I mean). That's your t-shirt: "The 'g' is silent, like in 'fish' --americansamuck."

Thanks for all you do for us!

That, of course, is Joaquin Phoenix in "Signs." That scene alone nearly made me feel like M. Night Shaymalan hadn't cheated me out of $7.50--again. I say almost.

I never knew what the "g is silent like in fish" really meant anyway.

I'll send you some chipotle and avacodos during your pledge drive, along with some dried beans.

Ooooh, Aussie Sarah, would you pay me in Chipotle to read your blog?

I had Chipotle for lunch today, so there.

Mrs. Werbenmanjensen - I would, but I think I'm farther from a Chipotle than you! *sigh*
