When Did He Get So Smart??

Actual conversation in the Grandy household.

Me (talking to a friend): I can't believe it. I make $XX per hour and yet I'm excited for earning $1 on a blog post. What's wrong with this picture?

Ty (without missing a beat while playing Guitar Hero II): Mom, that's because you got paid something for doing what you love. You're not just doing it because you have to, or for the money. That makes it a bonus.


From the mouths of babes...I'm so proud!!

I spent all day in the car today. Driving all over town and back. I had a lot of time to think today. I was so worried that I wouldn't get to post, visit my favorite sites or drop my cards. I was worried that I might miss out on the .18 I make on my blogs ads. Sickening! But he is absolutely right. The 18 cents I make means more to me than the nice wage I earn in "real" life. A lot more.

When I go out I worry that I won't make it home in time to post a blog entry and do my clicking and reading in others sites and miss my less than $1 in my "online money making" sites. :))

What I miss the most is driving,and not being stuck at home.

Oh so true. It's kind of nice to get paid a little bonus to do what you already enjoy. :)

I took a 7-day ad with Adgitize, looking forward to seeing the results when the stint is over. I have yet to see my ad on any Adgitize blogs though. You are at Mariuca today, in fact i came via Adgitize today! :):):)

What a wise young man. It is so true. Making those few pennies for a cup of Starbucks really is like an added bonus :)

Getting paid for doing something you love is one of the best feelings. Ty is wise for his age.
