The background you need to understand this story is as follows:
- I have a paid blogging job. It is not a long term job. It is just for 2 weeks, 10 posts. As far as I can tell, its not open to general public.
- S, my fiancee, does not understand why I blog or what I get out of it.
- Today is the end of National Blog Posting Month and I have done it. I have posted every single day. Really. Go check it out.
Last night’s conversation via Skype because, yes, we are still on different continents:
Me: I am almost done with NaBloPoMo posting!
S: Really, you wrote all of them already?
Me: Yea. Well, I mean I have been doing it everyday.
S: So when do you get paid.
Me: Oh wait. No. Haven’t finished the paid blogging posts. Only have 5 of those done.
S: Out of how many?
S: So why did you say you were almost done? That is only half.
Me: No, that I did the National Blog Posting Month.
S: Right. Yea. I know you did that. You put a sticker or something up.
Me: No…. silly…. that was LAST YEAR. I am doing it this year too.
S: Why? You already did it!
That being all said and done, seems like a good point to put up another “sticker”. Yay me!
