Where am I ? How did I get here? There are real writers at the Examiner, people who know about past participles, the pluperfect tense, epostulatory corpuscles and the like. I was that kid in English class who kept his head down in the vain hope that the teacher would never call on him.
So how did I get here? This writing journey began about 20 years ago when Don Feigel, the editor of an amateur radio newsletter, asked if I could contribute some articles. I’m a professional electronics technician, so I was interested in the tech side, but the pieces quickly devolved into comedy. I found a character, earnest but not overly bright, who may not be far removed from my own. It’s been a merry downhill run ever since.
Learn a new job skill. I have always wanted to learn computer programming. That is on my To Do List and I shall start immediately in January with the Stanford University Continuing Languages program.
Selling on eBay. Do you have memories of a different age? What’s old collection? Clothes that no longer used but still in very good condition? Why not try to make money from them and try to sell on eBay. EBay is one of the best options when it comes to earning extra money. Just send your articles and wait for someone to bid on them. As there are millions of people visiting the site each day, the possibilities are endless.

You can find scholarship opportunities specifically for moms, dads, working adults and more. They are simple to apply for and no essay is required.

Saving accounts are a great way to save money for almost anything. The best thing about saving accounts is that they come with interest. The more money you have in these accounts the more interest you’ll earn. You might be surprised at how much interest you can make if you leave your money in your savings accounts for five or ten years. Even small amounts of money will have a nice revenue if you just leave it alone. They may not be the best way to make money on your money, but it is certainly better than nothing at all.
