Things To Do In San Diego: August 4, 2011

Whereas yesterday was a really good day, today is a bit more stressful. That's how life as a freelancer goes, sometimes. Realizing I'm short on rent for the month and having more bills to pay just around the corner and no money coming in to cover them...not really sure what to do. My landlord is going to freak. The ironic thing is I'm running off to Vegas for the weekend, so one might think I must have money to blow, but I'm really just tagging along with Jeff who is covering the trip so that we can see Other Lives at the Cosmopolitan.

I've debated options for this site...I have that donate button over in the sidebar, I see other arts and entertainment people using Kickstarter, I've explored "Tip The Web", and there are ways to make it available only to subscribers. I've considered charging venues to have their shows listed but then you wouldn't have a complete rundown of what's going on. What's it actually worth to you though? If everyone who used this site regularly donated $10 or $5 or even $2 a month, I think I could keep on with the way it's going, but at the moment I'm feeling pretty fuzzy headed about it. Jeff suggested I just skip weekend listings and leave you all on your own, but that's not my style. So I'll get those weekend listings up, I'll do my best to enjoy Vegas, and I suppose I'll deal with my landlord and bills and figuring out how to close my personal budget shortfall as I can. Moving or homelessness wouldn't be a concern except that I have a dog and two cats to think about. I am also always open to new social media clients, banner advertisers, and band consulting/booking. I will suck this up and hopefully figure it all out. Or maybe I just skip rent and put it all on black?
