I Smell Diapers and Desperation

Man, what sleep-deprived new mom could pass up an opportunity like this one gleaned from Craigslist?

Freelance Blogger on Babies & Parenting (Work from Home)

Perfect job for a new mom.

* Location: Work from Home
* Compensation: $2 per daily 100 word post with bonus for measurable results
* Telecommuting is ok.
* This is a part-time job.
* Principals only. Recruiters, please don’t contact this job poster.
* Please, no phone calls about this job!
* Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests.

TWO whole dollars? Hot damn! It’s 1983 again, and I just spent the cash I earned for half an hour of babysitting on a fluorescent green bottle of Wet & Wild nail polish and a snack-sized bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.

The lucky new mom who lands this gig could almost support a tall latte per day habit.

Wild Dingoes Stole My Blogging Voice

So, this Mom Voyage thing is fucking boring, isn’t it? I’m not really sure how to write in a way that is less personal, and yet more informative. My guard is up, which makes for wimpy writing.

I’m still trying to figure out how to maintain a travel blog while not actively traveling. Thoughts?

Stick with me. I’ll figure this out. Or I’ll join the insanity of trying to write a novel in November again.
