Happy New Year Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and all that. I did the family thing for Christmas.

Not much new happening for me. This is my first post in a little while. It was Sunday December 5th, that was my last post. I guess i've sort of been playing World of Warcraft Cataclysm which came out Dec 7th 2010. I have a 85 Druid and 83 Mage. This time I was able to buy the game on Tuesday Dec 7th 2010 NZ time on that very morning and have it installed and ready to play for when the servers ticked over with Cataclysm which was 9pm NZ time but I can't remember exactly. So I was ready waiting with alot of other people to get my Azeroth flight license.

I've made so far since Dec 24 about 25k in Gold selling enchants on the Auction House. I'm making it selling mostly Wrath of Lick King enchants and a few new Cata ones as well. The best I did was 15 of one type of chant in an hour through advertising on trade. I was making a profit of about 30g on each one and sold 15 in an hour by running a small ad on trade. Advertising helps with the new stuff if people really want it and its at a good price. So I made 450G in an hour from one chant and i've made a lot more sometimes like yesterday the margin was 100g per chant and i sold a few without the advertising. People have made alot more but if I keep going I should do alright. I've got a total of about 75k Saved up at the moment. You have to keep fighting and checking the prices to see that you are still in first place listing on the auction house. Can be annoying with people camping the auction house and always undercutting you.

The XP that you need to go up each level is as follows:

80 - 81 : 1686300 XP

81 - 82 : 2121500 XP

82 - 83 : 4004000 XP

83 - 84 : 5203400 XP

84 - 85 : 9165100 XP

So if your still 80 you can see it will take a while. In the Guild that i'm in we had a druid who got the server first class achievement. He was the second 85 on the server. Also in my guild we had someone get server first archaeology. It took about 25 hours for the first person to go from 80-85. It took me about 4 days but I can't remember exactly.

I managed to stay up for 36 hours when Cataclysm first came out and played non stop virtually only breaking for meals and coffees and stuff. Though leveling was slow for me compared to alot of other people. I've got some experience and will know better for the next expansion pack perhaps 85-90.

So thats pretty much what i've been doing since my last post. Non stop World of Warcraft. I do do other things like Warcraft is getting old now.

This website is still about making money. Not that it makes any money. I'm trying to enterprise through the internet and hope that something I do works and makes me a little money.

It's kinda cool watching posts build up on this website. Not that I get many hits from old posts. My Pet Rock Shop gets heaps more hits than this website and i've put virtually no effort into it and this website fails and gets less hits with me putting all my effort into it. Sad Panda.

In the 15 days of this month so far my Pet RocK Shop has gotten 117 hits and has gotten only 49. Yes Sad Panda. The site I post to gets half as many hits as the site I never post to. So. I've been trying for about 5 years now to even make a dollar through the internet. I made $10 US once by selling an advertisement but so far that's about it. I have made $20 or so through Google Adsense where the ads i display on my page if they get clicked I earn $0.20 cents or something crazy for each click. It's kind of a running joke 5 years and zero dollars from punters pretty much.

Do you want to donate. I guess not. No-one does. All the money goes to the skilled bloggers who have important things to say or something to teach.

Heres some interesting facts:

My Dad is a builder/carpenter, my brother is a plumber. One dream I have is for them to build me a house. But the cheapest land in my town goes for about $80,000 and I have nothing. I rent. The biggest mortgage I could possibly obtain is only about 60k in total on my income. I need about $200,000 thousand total. So if I had $140,000 which the only possible means I could come up with such money is by donation through internet or alternatively win lotto but without actually buying tickets cause i don't buy tickets. If I had $140,000 I could then get a brand new house anyway just dreaming here really.

If you donate me a dollar I will spend it on my day to day operating running costs of living.

I will do my best to account for every dollar. You will end my 5 years losing streak at asking and trying to earn money through the internet.

I'm not much of a personality. If I was I could post with humor and skill and earn your also hard won/worked for dollars.

So life goes on I fail at trying to make extra cash to spend and stay above water.

Good luck with your endeavours
