A Blessing In Disguise

Throughout 2010 and the first half of 2011, I felt like a major financial contributor to my household. My husband, of course, is the main breadwinner, but I was still raking in a supplemental income of $200+ per week. Then, Demand Media Studios made their "First Look" announcement.

With all of the extra money coming in, we thought we were going to be out of debt in no time. Unfortunately, now we're back to waiting for tax season. Ugh.

Christmas is right around the corner. I can't help but feel inadequate when it comes to my current income situation. Since October 5, I haven't claimed a single title with Demand Media Studios. I think it's very telling that I remember the exact date of their announcement. It was a devastating blow.

As much as I complain, I guess I can't deny the fact that things are beginning to look up. In some ways, the announcement was a blessing in disguise. It's forced me to shift my focus to other opportunities. I clearly relied too heavily on Demand Media Studios. Seeing how quickly it can be ripped from my grip was eye-opening and made me realize that I should never have all of my eggs in one basket.

For that, I am grateful.
