Still alive … I swear!

So I’ve been floating around the internet for the past couple of days and I’ve decided that if I can get myself on a set schedule I can figure out a way to add some blogging into my day so I can at least make it seem as though I own the websites that I’m still actively paying for.  I did come across a few templates that I’m interested in using, I really have no drive to create something from scratch but I could always recreate something I did in the past.  I did really like the CNN style template that was previously up here but considering I’m not really in the design world anymore and am more interested in blogging than anything, it make make more sense to just keep it simple and go from there.

I will be getting back into sponsored blogging, just to bring in some extra money.  I know I can bring in an extra $500 a month if I actively do it and while that’s no where near what I was making before, it’ll still give me some extra cash to get some bills paid off quicker.

As far as real-life is concerned I’ve been working a lot of overtime and Sean’s been putting in a lot of hours on his stuff so as a whole we’re bringing in around $5600 a month.  It’s getting everything taken care of but having the extra money to accomplish some things would be great.  For me it means a new car, for Sean it means fixing his car and possibly purchasing another laptop being as mine is coming up on the four year mark and slowly beginning to die.  It’s not surprising considering how I abused the crap out of it over the years with Photoshop, Dreamweaver and iTunes constantly running. I will be purchasing a Macbook Pro and I know I’m going to need to save up about $3000 to get the one that I want.

So yea, expect a few more frequent updates out of me over the course of the next couple of days.  I haven’t decided which one I’m going to turn into my primary blog but I’m sure with everything going on in my life right now I’ll have more than enough to talk about anyway.
