Tonight I was doing some reading and come to find out that there's yet another person that's made a whole bunch of money on the web with little effort at all. I'm half tempted to "borrow" (a.k.a. copy or steal) his idea and buy a domain to sell one million pixels for a dollar each. It's almost unbelievable that he's made over a million bucks since August of 2005, only five months...
"That does it!" I thought, "I'm going to give my 'lack-of-fortune' page a permanent link in the navigation." I've had this page up since September 22, 2005 and it hasn't made me a penny, let alone a whole dollar.
Below you'll find reasons to send me money. Go on, you know you want to do it. I deserve it more than rabbit guy, boob girl, a-buck-per-pixel guy and all those others...right?
One would think with all the work I do that I'd be rolling in the cash. Not hardly; not a whole lot of fortune comes with the fame of writing a book lemme tell you — especially not from writing one about a software program with a less than 2 year shelf life.
It's just bill after bill after bill around here lately. Things were going well for a few months then one thing after another... Now times are getting rough quickly and stressing out over it is all I can do lately.
So I'm sitting here thinking, "what in the world can I do to bring in more money". I remember seeing a few crazy websites were people would donate money via PayPal. One site that comes to mind was used to help a gal get breast implants while another claimed they'd kill a bunny if they didn't raise $30k in donations. If they can get thousands for these frivolous things, well I think you can see where this is going...
My friends and family are going to think I'm nuts (if they didn't already). I can't even believe I'm writing this either. Should I ever come into fortune , I'll pay back every penny or donate it to charity or someone deserving. (Not a penny for boob girl and rabbit guy, I promise!)
In the meantime, I'll continue to work hard and develop more products that I can sell in hopes to get all these bills paid off. I doubt this page will ever make me any money, but at least it lets me vent a little bit and have some fun...
Below are a bunch of links to PayPal that you can use to send me money for a variety of what I think are perfectly good reasons for you to want to send me money. If none of these suit your fancy, feel free to come up with some other reason of your own to send me some money.
If any of this offends anyone, you have my sincerest apology. If you'd like to express your displeasure with me, please reconsider doing so. I really don't need to be made to feel badly about it and it won't do anyone any good. Instead, please put forth your energy to making someone's day bright, even if it isn't mine, or perhaps donate to a worthy cause you care about or an organization like the Red Cross.
