First, I must start today off with a confession.
Last night, I fibbed.
I did not go to bed after writing that post.
In fact, I didn’t actually get to bed until after 9 p.m.
But, come on…I had to check my stats, right?
See how much money I made (or didn’t make, as the case may be).
See where all of my lovely readers and commentors are coming from…
O.K., glad that I got that off my chest.
Now on to today.
In a bold mood, my body decided to wake me up at 2:46 to go potty. Which means that when my alarm clock went off a few minutes after I had fallen back to sleep, I was quite irritable.
Hitting the snooze button!!
That’ll teach my digestive system the value of waiting….
The mind is willing.
The body…not so much.
My body actually convinces my mind that mentally sketching out a series of posts on mTurk counts as actually being awake and active and is just as good as actually doing mTurk.
My wallet disagrees so at….
I actually turn the computer on. But yay (or boo. depends on who ya ask), my computer has to do an update so I close my eyes for just a minute while it does it.
I am assuming that the update took the whole 15 minutes to complete.
I don’t know, I was resting my eyes. Ahem.
I check my stats (I’m a stalker) and get caught up on a few news articles on Bing.
(Congratulations on finally getting that apology, Vanessa Williams!)
Ran out of legitimate excuses so I finally get that start on mTurk.
Eyes are crossing.
Can’t stare at those lil’ circles a second more.
Find myself almost falling asleep.
Taking a break to get started on this post…
Oh, wait, baby girl has questions about possible rain…
Oh, yeah, let me walk the dog right quick…
I am kinda hungry…
Ran out of excuses.
Time to get back to turking.
Thankfully, my turking day is over. ~phew~
I really need to build up my stamina for mTurk.
Lowering my daily goal from $10/day to $5 until I get right with my schedule.
Dots plus sleepy does not equate.
Now, on to my true love: blogging.
Actually, I am doing FB groups until 9 a.m. so, yeah, no so exciting…
Finished 1, yes, just 1, website visit thread.
Yes, there were so many that just the 1 thread took me an entire hour.
Taking a break from that to write up a post on turking.
Finished writing my post under the wire of my 11 o’clock deadline. Added post to Buffer.
Time to be social.
Actually, I just clicked a message in my email at random and sorted for all the emails from the sender.
And the winner is…Bloggy Moms!
Yay! Hurray! And the crowd goes wild….
I actually had over 250 messages from Bloggy Mom since 2012.
It interesting to see the growth in the email presentations.
The first emails were mostly join my blog hop.
Other posts had beautiful, professional looking header ads for the Bloggy Conference.
I hope one day to have sponsors to pay for me to travel around the world to all of the blog conferences.
As I reached more recent posts, they all came in beautiful with stunning HD images so there is hope for me yet.
And we’re back to Facebook groups…
Why do I do this to myself…
Another break from FB groups to be social.
Liked and shared posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, respectively.
Also through some chicken in the oven.
Hit by a case of the yawns but I’m hanging in there.
Realized that the cat walked across the keyboard so if you see some weird words, it was her. Honest.
Back to the FB groups.
This has become the biggest part of my blogging day.
OMG, finally, Finally, FINALLY finished with the Facebook groups.
I did take a dinner break in there somewhere for about 15 – 20 minutes but still….
Time to do my Swagbucks, Bing, PaidViewPoint, and Superpoints.
Time to hit the hay.
For realsies this time….
Funny thing is that I am not as tired as I was yesterday and yesterday I actually got more sleep.
The human body is a funny thing.
Night, night, all…
