Okay, okay, lets talk about money. Every now and then am always looking for a avenue to make that extra coin that will afford my son a good life. By a good life am talking about school fee is paid, his clothes are trendy- every mother wants that, right? I need to have some savings or medical insurance in case he falls ill, money for new toys, books, outings, and not forgetting that I need also to replace all the items he has damaged in the house, the broken cups, plates, and flower vase, #sigh#, this boy is too much! The list is endless on what one can do with money when you have children.
Borrowing from friends is a good idea, but only if you want to have a tag on your back, the beggar! And this gets worse if you cannot pay back in good time. Now, all those I owe money please don't throw stones at me! Being a single parent who works on freelance has taught me to be open to any money making opportunities that come my way. Legal and moral of course!
When it comes to writing, I go for anything that pays and exposes me to other experienced writers. There is no better place to gain exposure to global writers than over the internet. While writing on Squidoo you can find all sorts of writers from fiction, non-fiction, poets, and even academics. Writers who are published not only online but also have their books selling in major bookstores across the world.
