Day 672 of 365 More.

Brother can you spare a dime!!!!!

You know it’s crazy. I don’t do anything but work anymore. I guess it’s been like that for a while now, but I’m just starting to have it sink in.

I have so many extra projects, I can’t keep up with extra projects. 365s get posted after 4 in the morning. I keep falling behind on answering comments. I’m really behind on commenting on other people’s stuff. I started working on a tarot card like four days ago and haven’t gotten back to it. I haven’t had time to draw or edit my most recent photoshoot.

I’m just burnt out.

This will be so much easier when I become so famous that I don’t have to work a real job. But for being at work for 8+ hours a day, I’d really have a pretty good life.

As it is, I have no life anymore. It’s June. I should be well into planning Jammy Jam by now. I got nothing. No bands. No prizes. Last year we were actually talking about maybe trying to find some venue other than my house for this years jam, and yet I haven’t even been looking at outfits for myself. Anyone want a job being my Jammy Jam coordinator? My last one moved to Hawaii.

I’ve spent most of my time since I got home from work reorganizing the Hellcats site so that it can better display ads. Ewww, banner ads, my god have I sold out. But if I want to seriously be a writer/artist/whatever, I guess I have to make money some way. And I’m really happy about the Project: Wonderfiul business plan. They actually gaver us a serious boost in views today. Let’s hope it continues.

365 days

    Nice DoF, Mav.

    Banner ads are okay; most of the time I don’t even see them anymore. I can understand your concerns though. Best of luck with it.

    Agreed about the banner ads — as olga_sgr so eloquently put it, they’re a means to an end. As artists, we do what we have to do, so that we can eventually do what we want to do…

    Congratulations on getting it launched, and hang in there!

    Hi – I’m your neighbour in the 365 more pool again!

    I don’t do any work now – I can recommend retirement 🙂

    @olga_sgr: yeah. I wish we had better traffic so we could actually make some money with it.

    @thomasean: yep. I haven’t had time to process them though yet. Hopefully soon.

    @kevin (iapetus): yeah, I mostly ignore them too. But it appears some people click them. It’s been working out better than i expected. Of course, I’m not rich yet.

    @Ll’sWorld: Well they haven’t yet, but keep your fingers crossed.

    @SutraT: thanks. Keep checking back. I need all the readers I can get.

    @365bunnies: Jammy Jam is the annual pajama and lingerie party I have on my birthday. Live bands, lots of alcohol. People running around in their underwear. It’s lots of fun.

    @GeorgieR: I’d love retirement. *sigh*

    @The Flooz: heh. It is a fun time.

    @365bunnies: oh, no no no. Of course I’m going to have it. I just haven’t started planning yet, which sucks. I’d sooner die then not have Jammy Jam. And when I do, I hope that someone has the foresight to throw a jammy jam at my funeral.
