August, 2011: My writing side job, a possible Fan Funding Campaign??

As Summer winds down, I wish I could've worked more on this project. My day job works me less in the Summer so I don't have the money to do what I want. My instruments are "in jail" AKA the pawn shop. Its really frustrating when you want to do something and don't have the means to do it with.

In the meantime, I'm keeping up with people on Twitter and Facebook and checking the news in the music industry online when I'm at work or at the library since I don't have a computer at home.

I would like to mention, I write parenting articles for I am the Minneapolis Elementary Years Parenting Examiner. If you are a parent and would like to read more, you can click on the link to read my articles. Its a side job, though it doesn't pay much.  I'm trying to get more articles out and increase my readership. As a parent myself, I have seen kids go down the wrong road and it saddens me.  If we, as a community, can get more parents involved in their children's lives and get more kids on the road to success, the world would be a better place.

So as work picks up and I can get regular paychecks again, I am thinking of doing a fan funding campaign. Though I don't have much to offer right now since I'm just starting out, I'd like to ask you: what would you like to get if you were to contribute to my campaign? I've been viewing other sites and I've seen autographed pictures and hand written lyrics offered. Free tickets to shows or private house concerts. It could be something as simple as a handwritten thank you note! SPEAK OUT! Tell me what YOU want! I'm listening...
