funnel me some money why don’t ya?

funnel  I wish someone would funnel some money into my bank account.  That would be nice.  It seems every year there is something or other, right smack in the middle of winter, that funnels our money OUT of our accounts. This year it is a shed..which once paid for will need interior walls put in to cover the insulation, then will need an electric hookup to the house electric.

I thought (yea, I did actually think) that I had all the finances in place to do all of this without going crazy or bouncing checks.

Turns out I was wrong………..so I won’t have my very own wish for Christmas of having George move all his models and detritus into the shed anytime soon. I was so looking forward to having a guest/crafts room too.

Maybe I should just stick a go fund me or a paypal box thingy in the blog…then instead of buying me coffee or paying me to write, ya’ll could pay me to get George out of the house.

  1. LOL I love the concept…. “Help me get the hubby out!” Sure would catch people’s attention 🙂

  2. Every time we get a bit ahead, something disastrous always happens. Usually a car needing major repairs. This year, it was the upstairs furnace, right in the middle of the coldest snap we’ve had in years! Luckily, it was fixable, so we’re all enjoying the warmth again:-)

    I do hope you get George and his models moved out. My mom would be a hording cat-woman if not for her husband who demands that the horde be kept in its place and at a manageable size. I do think there is a segment of the population out there that would be willing to donate to a “Move George’s Models to the Shed” fund, too.

    Speaking of all of that, though, I’ve been looking to monetize my blog now that it has met with a modicum of success. I’m really just hoping for pocket change during the retirement years (not that far away now). As far as I can tell there are three ways to do it: ads, donations, and selling a product. I’d be curious to know how this goes for you, if you do it. I didn’t see a button on your site, so I’m assuming you haven’t yet.

    Keep us up-to-date on the whole project!

    All the best,
    Jack

      2. okay..there seems to be a couple of ways to monetise. First you have to have WP upgraded from a person site to a business site if you want all the bells and whistles. OR you can go halfway, use adwords, and advertising by wp affiliates with a “professional personal” blog. it’s 48 bucks a year for that one, so that’s what I did. tehn you simply turn on adwords and wp does the work for you. you need a paypal account to link to adwords for payments. you can also add a paypal “donate” button but you have to put a dollar amount into it for it to work. I stuck 1 dollar in the amount column so it would work and already have made 1 dollar. it took all of fourteen minutes from working to getting a buck. for larger donations where the donor decides how much to pay you MUST have a business account. I couldn’t afford that. hope all this helps. you may actually get a few cups of starbucks out of this.

      3. Thanks Suze! I knew about the business account but not the professional personal blog. I have had the devil’s own time getting a paypal account — my financial life is complicated spread over several countries; the world has not caught up to our lifestyle. Ha ha. But, I think I can get a paypal account in Canada, for example.

        Thank you for sharing your experience with me!

        Huzzah!
