How Much do YouTubers Actually Earn?

I see a lot of wild speculation about how much money the big YouTubers earn, how rich they are (and apparently greedy). Well I’ve done some research and here is what I’ve come up with. So let’s take the current top YouTubers, Smosh, as an example. It has been estimated that they earned around $1…

Sick Computer Blues

So you may have noticed I don’t blog as much as I used to (sorry about that). It’s probably because I found that I really enjoy vlogging (video blogging) on YouTube more, so instead of writing down my thoughts, I say them out loud to a camera instead. Well that brings me to my blog…

Feeling Fortunate

I recently had a meeting with a new 3rd party client (meaning that they are actually a client of one of my clients). For some reason I was nervous about the meeting as I didn’t feel I was as well versed as I could be in the area we would be discussing. However, the meeting…

Moving House

Well we’ve finally done it! Dave and I have bought a new house! Contracts are signed, appraisal is scheduled. In fact the appraisal is the last piece that we’re worried about now – if the home doesn’t appraise to what we offered on it, we still get the option to back out of the deal….

The Perfect Guilt-Free Almond Cookies

This recipe is one that I got from my grandmother, and modified to be even more guilt-free than the original version. I’ve tested them out on my friends and considering there are none left attests to their tastiness. :) Ingredients: 3 Egg Whites Pinch of Cream of Tartar (approx 1/16 – 1/8th teaspoon) 3 Tblsp…

Midlife Crisis?!

I’ve come to a realization that my primary motivation behind all the changes I’ve been doing this year are possibly attributable to the fact I turned 40 a year ago. Since then I’ve been having all sorts of medical tests and procedures done that I’ve been putting off. I’ve been going back to the gym…

Honeymoonin’

Last week we got back from our honeymoon in Belize. We had a really lovely time and took tons of photos and video footage of our trip. This was by far our most expensive trip we’ve ever taken, mostly in part because we decided to stay at a resort, instead of just rent a little…

Life and stuff …

It’s been ages since I’ve posted an update. I have nothing earth shattering to blog about today but I figured I’d just write a little update about life in general. I’ve been pretty busy with work lately – my hours have really picked up with my clients and I’m consistently working 25 – 40 hours/week…

Wedding Bells

So my fiance and I went ahead and “eloped” yesterday. We just ran down to the courthouse and within minutes we were legally married. The State of Colorado apparently makes it extremely easy to get married. You could almost call it a “quickie” wedding. First of all couples can “self-officiate,” meaning you don’t need a…

Slivers and Colds and Fires, Oh My!

They say bad things come in threes and over the past few days that certainly seems true. Slivers So, our dog Joey has been trying to chew through part of our fence in the back yard to get at some other dogs. Through these efforts he got some wood splinters between 2 toes and they…
