My November 'Make $1000 Challenge'

I was going to do the NaNoWriMo challenge in November (I still may, I haven't decided yet).  Then I was going to challenge myself to have 30 new experiences in Las Vegas during the month of November (can you tell I like challenges?).  And then I decided that I need some money because hopefully by early December we will be moving into our new place and will need to furnish it.  I am also dying for a new laptop, camera, and android phone.  Plus Christmas is coming up (yikes!).  So some extra money would come in handy right about now.
I haven't earned much money since somewhere around January and it is a disconcerting feeling when I can't even buy a $100 item because I have no idea where that $100 will come from (in my previous life as a money-earning person, a $100 purchase was nothing now it is a Very. Big. Deal.). 
So my challenge to myself (and you if you are so inclined to join me) is to make $1000 during the month of November.
Currently I have no idea how I will do this as selling things is out (I have nothing left to sell), earning it via overtime at a job is out (I have no job), and stripping or something equally nefarious--we are in Las Vegas after all--is out (they would pay me to get OFF the stage...).  But some how I am going to earn me $1000 by the end of November...I just don't know how yet.  Of course I will post on this blog each day my success (or lack thereof) and hopefully give you some ideas that you can use to make some extra money as well.


  1. I think you can do it! Good luck.

  2. A thousand bucks? In one month? In Vegas? And nothing nefarious like gambling or stripping? Wow, that's quite a challenge! I'll be watching!

  3. Good luck with your challenge (they would pay me to get OFF stage too :))

  4. Ha! They would pay me to get off the stage, as well. People would also pay me not to sing.

    Heeeeyyyy. . .I've got an idea. . .
