artist's life looks bearable in blog

I know now why companies pay people to blog for them (kind of like ghostwriting). Sometimes there are so many things to say, but none of them are really interesting enough for a full blog post.

"Yesterday I went to WalMart and found a paper clip on the ground" is true, but it's hardly an adequate blog post.

...oh no...where did I put that paper clip...?

Dude! Companies pay people to blog!

I want in on that!

Then again I too would discuss paper clips.

p.s. the answer to what you wrote on my blog - that was a pic of *Eddie Van Halen. Pitiful huh!

Sorry, I realized that mistake too late! Eddie Van Halen/John Bon Jovi...easily confused LOL

Yes, companies do pay people to blog for 'em...I heard about 30K a year.

They want someone good, otherwise I would apply. Har!

Can I write and get paid for it? Who knew! I've always wanted a cool job title. Professional Blog Writer. Professional grocery shopper. Professional bed tester - not THAT way... sleeping... Haha.

Cindy, yes you can..I read it in an article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Companies are looking for people who can blog daily in short entries that communicate the company vision in a conversational way. I might be able to communicate someone else's company vision better than my own, actually!
