This blog post will be number 801! Sheesh, I wonder what blather went into all those other 800? Just kidding. Some of them did have a bit of redeeming value I guess. The best part is that there were just about as many comments. Yeah, there could have been much more, but hey, what the heck, I'll take 'em!
A lot of my visitors come from CMF ads, and if you're one of them, many thanks to you! I think CMF ads are awesome and very easy to use. I only charge 30 cents for a month long ad, which seems well worth the money for what it does for this blog as well as others. Traffic is 'golden', so they say.
These are just a few of my many CMF ad purchasers:
You may see some changes to Pentimento over the next few months. I will still be writing about my everyday life, adding photos, and yakking about things I think are interesting. But, I have decided to go back to writing some adverts too. Why? Let me explain...
It's The Economy. And No, You Aren't Stupid
Going out and finding a job is just not possible for me. I need to have control over when I can work or not because, at the end of the day, I will always have fibromyalgia and there are just some days I am in so much pain I can't do anything but lay down and rest. But, I have my trusty computer, a reasonably lucid mind and spell check. I need a way to make some money to pay for my blog fees and other small incidentals. I always disclose when it's a compensated post and Pentimento won't just become a blog to sell you things. I ask for your understanding about this, and if you feel so inclined, please help me out and click a link now and then. It's appreciated, not mandatory.
Home Improvement Update - Wilkerson House
Coming soon in following posts will be updates on some of our house projects around here. I'll tell you what products we've used and why, as well as any "light bulb" moments or "uh ohs".
We've (as in, Jim, at this point) been working on replacing our Trex deck with a new one when the old one failed.
We're in the midst of remodeling our only bathroom. (pictures of "before" coming soon).
I'll probably have to do some more purging of closets and storage cabinets, all in preparation for the next major push: adding a bath/laundry room at one end of our family room. I'll have to find someplace to put all the stuff that's at that end of the room now. Ugh!
As always, thanks for visiting today and every day. You guys are the best.
We have new computer and I will be getting it online in the next few days, so you may not see any new posts for a while. Or, I may be lucky and be back sooner than I thought. Entrecarders, please forgive me for not doing reciprocal drops on ya! As Arnold said, "I'll be back!"
