No, not those ads on the side that I'm going to pull shortly; I'm actually paying the rent writing.
Not here, but doing some freelance writing. My major gig is working for Momemtum Freight doing automotive and trucking related posts for their Transport and Freight message boards. Some of my posts get mildly edited and put up on a pair of company blogs. That one came from a Monster ad, not any of the free-lance sites.
That covers a bit of interesting areas. Anything automotive fits, as does anything regarding fuels, trucking, trains (I was all over the CN strike, Bene), shipping; even the strong yen can generate a post on what it means for the vintage car market.
The good personal news is that my first "paycheck" from my Momentum gig hit the bank today, just in time to pay this month's rent. It's not professor pay, but it's close to my old take-home pay as an accounting temp. Throw in a few stray assignments from a couple of free-lance sites and my continued finance tutoring online (I worked three nights this week and will be up to four come January) and I'm keeping most of the creditors at bay; If we can get Eileen back to work on a regular basis (pickings are small for her now), we'll keep them all at bay.
Things are pretty good for getting canned two weeks ago. Let's hope I still think that way when I write my first COBRA check for health insurance coverage.
