Yeah, the Cookie Monster might not look scary, but he’ll crush you in a heart beat.
Try looking in the mirror and saying his name 7 times. You’ll see.
I’m not perfect. I’ve got bills coming out of my ears.
But what’s making the sHituation a whole lot worse is that I’m OWED money too.
It wouldn’t pay all my bills if all the people that owed me coughed up
…but it would help.
Heck yeah, it would help.
So who owes me money, ey?
In November, I mentioned I wanted to go back to running workshops once or twice a month as the money’s really good and it would support my online thang. Well, soon as I thought it, it kinda just fell into my lap. Got an email to run a creative-writing workshop in a school in mid-December – over 3 days. Was real cool. Loved it.
But I’m still waiting for the cheque. And that sucks, y’all. Really sucks. Some schools are kinda sluggish like that.
Website Research: £35
I did some one-to-one research through a London-based company I’ve been a panel member of for some time. I hardly qualify for their research panels so I was quite chuffed when they called me out of the blue for one. The research was only for half an hour too. They’re lovely people, but unfortunately, I haven’t been paid because the person who dishes out the payments is sick. (UPDATE – 19th Jan: the money came thru today)
myLot is an online paid-to-post forum. I use it on and off, which is why it took me a while to reach the minimum $10 payout. They pay out every mid-month or so, so I was due a payment around 15th Jan. A couple of days before payout was due, one of the admins sent me an email asking me to change my initial (on my payment details) to my full name which I did fairly quickly. However, they changed my pay date from mid-Jan to mid-Feb, so although I haven’t lost the money, it would have come in handy sooner rather than later. That could have covered my hosting cost for this month.
An Affiliate Payment: about $7.50
Ok, it’s not a lot, but I sold someone’s product as an affiliate and I’m still waiting for that too. (UPDATE – 22nd Jan: been paid)
Altogether, I make that £535 and $18.97 which would SO do me right now.
Not a happy bunny.
