How I Make Money Blogging Managing Your Monthly Nut

Salt Lake City Couch Surfing (Maybe) and the Plutus Awards

Hi!  Today’s post is a combined one since there are two short things that I wanted to cover.  :-)

Live In or Near Salt Lake City?

The first thing is that I may have a few days to kill sometime between September 19-24 in or around Salt Lake City, Utah.  My original plan was to visit a blogging buddy, so I already bought a $257 non-refundable plane ticket.  But he got an offer he just can’t refuse from overseas (I wouldn’t have turned it down either), so now he most likely won’t actually be in the country while I’m visiting.  Sad face for me but I’m glad he is trying to take the opportunity when it knocks.

I am planning to spend a day or two with his wife and kids during that span, but I rather not put her out the whole time.  She’s a pregnant introvert with 3 young children already.  And she doesn’t know me really well yet.  So she probably doesn’t know that I cuss like a small, red-headed sailor…although she does know I am the complete opposite of an introvert, lol.  I think my presence the whole time would drive her batty.

But she’s also a sweety that would not tell me, so I am just looking for couch surfing opportunities as a backup plan.  I also have to put it out there since I would be staying the night – I am allergic to cats and smoke.  Like need-an-inhaler-and-maybe-something-stronger allergic.  Stupid asthma.  But for some reason, dogs aren’t my kryptonite too…I will never understand.

Plutus Awards Nominations

The second thing is that the Plutus Awards Nominations have started once again.  :-)  I’d be super grateful, as would all of your other favorite bloggers, if you would click here and fill out your nominations.  :-D

I think could possibly work in the following categories:

  • Best Kept Secret (not sure what defines a secret, but there at least millions of people that could be tuning in that aren’t, lol)
  • Humorous
  • Blog of the Year (okay, so maybe that’s stretching it a bit, but you love me, right?)  :-D

Anyway, even if BFS isn’t on your list of nominations, your favorite bloggers would appreciate the mention!  :-)

BFS for Humorous Blog


So let me know if you are in or near Salt Lake City and thanks in advance for your Plutus Awards nomination!  ;-)
