Thoughts are a … funny old thing.
Aren’t they … ?
Right at the moment … ?
I’m thinking that a couple of people have suggested I go freelance: writing stuff for Fiverr, and earning a bit of extra money.
I think … I might just.
There’s a couple of people offering pub quizzes on there, which means there’s minimal competition. And I can accept payment with my Paypal account.
First things first, though …
I THINK I’m going to have have something to sell.
Coming up with premium versions of the pub quizzes I hand out here?
Might just be the thing.
