Am I tired yet? A little

After two years of blogging, (and chasing after paid posts) I think I finally had enough of the latter.

Don't get me wrong, I love romancing the pc and keyboard, but it had come to a point that I think I am spending waaayyy too much time in front of it. There was a time when the paid posts were at its height, I would switch my computer on first thing in the morning and try to go through it as much as I can in the noons before I get to work, and after midnight till whenever.

Then, POOFFF! Gone was my hard-earned PR. Needless to say, opps are rare, to put it mildly. So rare, that I hardly log on to them anymore to grab any chances. And since I hardly logged on, some other bosses 'thought' I am inactive and kinda stopped giving me assignments. Another one we have to log on to bid. Naaahh.... not worth my time anymore.

So, I stick to one boss now. That is penganjur hawa dingin I. Hahahaha. No, I still don't make enough to pay the monthly instalments, but at least I am getting a fixed stream of opps from it without me wasting time on searching others. For the first time in months, if you noticed, I have relaxed on my postings, and not trying to make up so many interim posts. And for the first time in months, I can go out somewhere and enjoy my time, without this evil pc at the back of my mind.

Today, I brought Aidan to a friend's house to play with her two sons and we just yakked. It is a great feeling of not getting tied down to a screen! Having said that, I am now off to play a little of Text Twirl and perhaps blog-hop a bit. Hey! That's just the night owl in me!

I find that doing paid posts is kachang putih money. Waste of time.

Yep, I can relate. Those were the days but now I'd rather have the opps sent to me and take my time to write. Most important of all, I can sleep when my kids sleep. U knowlah, age catching up, must have enough beauty sleep. Heh heh.
