Why I Stopped Blogging About Blogging

This post has been mulling around in my head for a while now. At the beginning of this year, I took down most of the posts and pages on this blog about blogging and freelancing. (I say most because I’m not entirely finished the content audit and I don’t want you to kill me if there does happen to be a few mentions of them still hanging about. 🙂 ) It was a decision I


How to Survive Music Festivals on a Budget

Here are two indisputable facts: Music festivals with a good group of friends are the absolute bomb. Music festivals are hella expensive. Coachella is considered the holy grail of music festivals.

A List of Used Stuff You Can Sell for Cash

My first memory of cashing in on junk is from 5th grade. We had this weird competition with multiple schools. Whoever collected the most valuable junk won a school field trip to the recycling plant. Of course, me and my neighbor went a little overboard. I mean, go big or go home right? We created a song, “Trash collectors, trash collectors”, to the tune from the Soccer Boppers commercial. (It’s cool, just go with it.) Then
