and then there were two

It's official.

You've all heard about my Famous Author Cousin.  She writes books.  Gets paid.  Wins awards.  Makes me feel like a slug.  (But not on purpose, so I love her still.)

Well.  I am a slug no more.  A few weeks ago, I got an interesting email from someone I didn't know.  Checked it, with some suspicion.  Asked around.  It seemed surprisingly legit.

And today, ladies and gentlemen, I got paid in return for allowing someone to sponsor one of my posts in this very space.

That's right.  I wrote.  And someone paid.

We've got TWO authors in the family now.

Um. What does that mean, exactly?

Someone paid you...for what...their being able to reprint with your permission?

If so, how nice!

If not, I dongeddit.

Hi Anon :) If you click on the "sponsor one of my posts" you will see that a line has been added to that specific post, saying "hey, you should click here to get a great degree."

They wanted the link added to that particular post. My guess is that post has a lot of words that people search for, so it's more likely to come up in the result of someone's search.

That's only a guess though.
