Blogging….as a career?

To my fans,

I am sitting here this late evening after work wondering about what it is I would like to do in the future.  Well actually I am just day dreaming about what I would like to do as some of the guests in the restaurant I manage were quite difficult tonight.  Ridiculous complaints was all I really heard, but what makes them so bad is the people get vicious.  You would almost think that I was insulting their children or something horrible like that.

The truth be told I do love the restaurant industry and intend on staying in it.  I was, however, looking over freelance writing perspectives over the past few weeks and have noticed that there are many people asking bloggers to write for cash!  I have never blogged before, but I figured I might as well give it a try if people are willing to pay for blogs to be written. Here I am a little past midnight writing it up.

As it turns out freelance writing can be an adventure and beneficial fiscally as well.  The only situation that I have had a problem with in the past, and probably still have is GRAMMAR .  There is always, however, a remedy.  I am currently using the aid of my friends over at about.com to help me get better at identifying grammar mistakes and problems.  I love incomplete sentences and I love missing lots of my punctuation.  I still double space after a period, (is that wrong?)

No matter what, I am still going to be taking strides at getting better with my writing skills.  I believe that a story written correctly and in a manner that people can relate and understand will be a best seller.  My current work can not have minor grammar mistakes so I am sure I will cheat and hire an editor.  I just thought it was a fun fact to inform everyone of, knowing that you can get paid for writing your thoughts in blog form.

Thank you for your time,
