I Need To Step Up My Game On Here

Hey, guys. I have cooled off a bit since my rant last night, so let's move on...

I do not look at my earnings here on Persona Paper as something to live off of, but as extra money for fun. I haven't hit my first redemption yet, but I know it pays (unlike the three-letter site, *ahem*), so I'm not worried about that. :) Anywho, even for fun-money, I really need to step my game up in here.

I cannot say that the earnings are "OMG SLOW" because I have not been as active as I could have been. I mean, there really are days where I just don't have the time, so I'm referring to when I -do- have the time.

Most of you know I am going to WWE SummerSlam in August, and I think the trip is nearly paid off (unless the WWE announces more events for that weekend), excluding transportation (which I should have the money for). Well I am trying to plan another trip in April of 2016, and this one is going to cost a little extra since I have to fly instead of drive. Ughhhhh lol. I am going to still take a little out of my freelance writing and babysitting pays, but some I cannot do until after I am finished with the SummerSlam stuff. You gotta pace yourself, ya know? I do have other expenses that are more important so I cannot go broke saving for these trips.

So anyways, if I can at least cash out every few months and just put it on the side, it would be helpful. I don't know how long it takes to cash out, but I really need to try and up my game here. I need to try and post more, interact more, etc. I don't like to post from my tablet because it doesn't break the posts up into paragraphs. I don't like to interact on my laptop because it slows my browsers down. So duh, I should be posting from my laptop and interacting from the tablet. It gives me the chance to earn more, and get to know more of you in the process; sometimes I still feel like I'm a newbie since I went months of barely being on here. That's my own fault though. I am thinking of going through my notifications and making a list of everyone I follow on here (and I'll have to catch some as I go), so that way I can check their stuff when I fall behind. Or is there another way to see who you are following on here? Thanks.

Now the problem with writing a lot of posts on here and even Bubblews? Time and ideas. I do not always have the time between babysitting and working on my orders from clients. When I do have the time, I cannot always come up with as many ideas. I need to sit down, brainstorm and come up with a "layout" for when I do have the time (i.e., one post can be blogging, another can be a writing prompt).

Vacation or no vacation, I have to take this day-by-day for reasons I just stated (time management really), but I am going to -try- to up my game a bit on here and Bubblews (the third site I was on, I'm probably saying adios to this week). I should especially be doing this when I am sitting home bored to death lol.

Alrighty, I am distracted by the kiddies and other thoughts, so I need to go before this post becomes a bigger mess than it already is lol. You all enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

Even my work on that I have made pretty good money is not something that I rely on to pay bills. The online income is strictly for extras to enjoy.

AbbyG and Soonerdad3 - Oh I definitely don't include this or even Bubblews as part of my usual income, but it could come in handy with my possible April 2016 trip, as I figured saving may be a bit of a struggle. You know, just some extra money to go towards it. :) Oh, and I'm going to get back to people on my tablet; as I am still on my laptop and I don't want it to run slow right now. I'm almost finished with my regular work. :D
