Some might ask why I chose to use a blog in order to try and hit my $20,000 rather than just, I don't know, going out and getting a part time job. Trying to sell my art at art shows and conventions. Using Craigslist to get rid of a bunch of stuff that I might not need anymore. I think it's a simple answer for me, really – user interaction. I like dealing with people. Sure, my job currently allows for that, but not on the scope I think I'd prefer. I like to discuss and debate, to confer with others on ideas – lots of things like that.
So, so far Sarah has been pretty helpful with informing me about different opportunities available in the city for my challenge. The ones I have so far include:
Other resources she pointed out were:
This could be fun or horribly disastrous. I can see myself applying for a number of different opportunities and wasting time trying to wait and see how things develop. But once the ball starts rolling, maybe it would get me to my goal a lot faster! Won't know until I take the plunge, so I'd better get started!
TODAY'S CONTESTS ENTERED:
http://www.canadapost.ca/way (can enter once daily) <– this has a top prize of a $5,000 gift certificate for Canadian Tire – Sarah figures I could hawk it off on eBay/Craigslist for $4,000 if I won. Makes enough sense to me.
I need to make time to hit Kinko's tomorrow to submit that calendar (it's hard to get your butt out in the cold to do things up here in Canada, eh?) and work on a design for the Threadless $10K for 2K10 contest (http://www.threadless.com/loves/threadless2k10) – but it's going to have to be something killer. I'll post it up when I come up with it 🙂
Anyway, more to come tomorrow on ideas for things I could do in the next coming months and hopefully a post a day/every few days on things I could possibly do for you if you hire me 🙂
The 2010 20K Running Total: $1.00
