My total earnings through week 3: $2.67 (though today the earnings figures did not update, so maybe this is understated). Disappointingly, the pace of my earnings actually decreased compared to where I was after Week 2. Going to $2.67 from $1.69 at the end of last week only reflected a 58% increase, whereas from Week 1 to Week 2 my earnings increased 70%. Still, I am encouraged that I am earning, but I would prefer to see an increasing rate of increase (though I admit that it still so early in the game that I should chill the f*** out).
I found it tough once again to keep up the pace of one article per day but did find inspiration this week to write what I thought is a really funny article. I play basketball at my gym here in NYC and for a corporate league about three times a week and my feet get pretty beat up. So, on Thursday night, I took my Ped-Egg out and rubbed down my feet. I then thought, this would make a great article for eHow - how to use the Ped-Egg - if you are a dude! (It is not masculine at all to use a Ped-Egg, but screw it, I love it!) What is a Ped-Egg? It is basically a foot scrubber inspired by a cheese grater. These little tiny blades on this egg-shaped piece of plastic gently file down calloused and dry skin to reveal new and healthy skin. Simply, if you have never tried it, it is awesome. I promise.
See, last summer, after walking through nearly all of western Europe and Asia in my flip flops, I bought a Ped-Egg. I had some pretty nasty feet after my vacation, saw the infomercial late one night when I got home to my parents' house in Los Angeles, and checked out their website (www.pedegg.com) and decided to buy one. And of course, my mom, dad, and sisters HAD A FIELD DAY making fun of me for my purchase. But I didn't care - what a freakin' God-send this thing was! The Ped-Egg totally worked as advertised and I had baby-like skin after just a few minutes of using it. I really thought my situation was hopeless and I needed medical attention from a podiatrist, but the Ped-Egg brought me the relief I needed.
Here is the article on eHow: How to use a Ped-Egg (if you are a dude)
I sent it out to my family and had them falling over laughing. I also got pretty immediate feedback from a number of wives out there who read my article dying to get their husbands to clean up their feet! Hilarious. I am seriously considering creating a new website dedicated to men who love using the Ped-Egg (just like me!) hahaha. Definitely on my to-do list now, too much comedic value out there not to.
Anyway, that's all I've got this week, trying to get to 50 articles next (could take a while, I know)
Until next time, -frankie d.
