Well, technically I’ve been a blogger for almost a year but now I’ll be a blogger of a different kind. The other day I lost some Facebook friends after I was accused of ableism for posting a status about being annoyed by atrocious grammar. Before I lost those friends one of them made a jab at me for not having a job. The piece of writing I submitted yesterday about grammar abuse resulted in a much better outcome.

Today I got an email informing me that I am now officially a writer for a blogging website. I know “Your post was very professional and we think our customers will love your style” is just a stock phrase they use in everyone’s acceptance email but it was still good to hear.

At this point my post has not been accepted by the client and if it is I will only get paid $8 for it. I don’t think anyone has ever been this excited about the prospect of making 8 bucks. Β It’s not really about the money though. It’s about the sense of self worth that finally having something that’s kind of, sort of, almost a job gives me. It’s about finally having it confirmed that I have a skill and a talent someone would be willing to pay me for. It’s about finally having an answer to that awkward question of “What do you do?”

I can say that I’m a blogger.

  1. Look at your last two months. Eight weeks and like a dozen flame wars on the internet! You’re built for a career writing online. You’ve got the drama down to a science!

    I don’t know if I’d pay eight bucks for it, but that’s at least what a popcorn costs at the movies. I’ll consode

    1. At least I’m not a coward who trolls peoples’ blogs under anonymous identities leaving nasty comments in response to their good news. What the hell does consode mean?

      1. I’m not ashamed of being involved in internet arguments in which I stand up for myself and what I believe in. There are a lot of assholes on the internet who pick fights with me and you’re one of them, Dick. You should be ashamed of yourself for stalking and trolling my blog. You asked me to leave you alone and I have but you won’t leave me alone. Please stop being a creepy pathetic loser and find something better to do with your time.

  2. Congrats! Things like this help make people feel appreciated (but don’t forget that you’re already appreciated). I wish I could do something like that, but my posts are filled with random crap lol.

  3. Lol– Wolfbitch, you’re not in jail yet? I thought Jonathan said he was going to throw you in jail because you broke some internet law against arguing with him in public and hurting his feewings. Poor widdle guy.

    1. Maybe he just hasn’t been able to track her down with her IP address like he claimed he could. In his case though the IP address along with the snooty tone was enough for me to identify him. He sucks at playing dress up.
