Been wondering a lot when it was time to get anyone to read this blog. Currently traffic is virtually zero but so is my promotion efforts.
With baby Jay, my self-employment bizz and dishes, promotion of this blog just hasn’t been top priority. And logistically it is very difficult. At home I’m constantly interrupted.… Read more
Writing this Saturday is interesting, because Monday could be crap. As usual. With Big Photographer Client and all his Mess.
However, after feeling like crap Saturday I’ve made a few good decisions. Here they are:
Replacing the 1500 USD per month I earn from Big Photographer Client is of paramount importance.… Read more
… when it comes to earning money in a way that’s better than now.
Not news, really, although this time it came to me while walking Jay in his carriage Very Early this morning, dead-tired and wondering if I was ever going to get time enough to get some of the (other) successes I craved in life.… Read more
Had a rather trying day with Difficult-Again-Photographer-Client, CN, and wondered as I went home with the metropolitan train how to kill.

I have spent a lot of hours thinking about this, while shopping, going from A-B or just thinking.… Read more
I had two meetings today with people I helped with their websites. I also got 2 rejections from employers I applied for a job.
But at least I helped – did something for someone. The people in question were friends, by the way, but does it matter?
It might as well have been others, like a shop-owner I help regularly with her webshop … like today, actually.… Read more
I was considering for the nth time today if I should sign up for the limited entrepreneur programme of my insurance scheme.
