Whoa

I just made a pretty earth shattering decision.

As you know, I'm a poor college student so I'm always looking for legit ways of making a little extra money without having to start pole dancing on the Vegas strip.

According to my uncle, though, my family wouldn't be surprised if I ended up taking that road anyway. He thinks I already have serious thoughts about it. And I'm not gonna lie, it's appealing. I'm only doing it to get through college, after all...

Back to the issue at hand. I registered this blog for Pay Per Post a few days ago, thoroughly expecting to be rejected because of my questionable url and lack of recognizable page rank. Imagine my surprise and joy when I opened my email this morning and found I'd been approved! (Apparently I now have a page rank of 2. We're moving on up!)

So then, I logged in to see the opportunities. And I found one, and I clicked on it, and I got fully ready to write the post about it.

Then, something stopped me.

I got too much love for this blog to put advertisements on it. Not that advertisements are a bad thing, and I've seen many successful blogs with ads on them. But this one just isn't the one for it.

This is where ya'll can come and read about stuff happening in the news, or what's going on in my life, or basically any random things that come into my head as the day progresses. I don't want you wasting your time skimming through paid posts here. As much as I need the money, it's not worth me losing the very essence of real that keeps this blog together.

Can't believe I just traded money for integrity, but I swear to God, it's an amazing feeling.

Besides, this is exactly what I created a whole new blog for. I wanted a new blog so that I could write paid posts and not feel so bad about it. I wanted a new blog so I could put Adsense and everything. My new blog is going to be my moneymaker.

It's nice to know that my blog can make me money. But no amount of money can ever equal the friends, support, humor, wisdom, and just plain fun I've gotten from this.

Thanks for the good times, ya'll. I look forward to many, many more.

Thanks KC! I appear to be having the opposite reaction though...I've been spending so much time on Common Sense that I forget about my other one!
