Required Reading For All

My friend Mikey sent me a link today before signing offline and telling me to "eat a dick, cockmaster"

The link was to this site called Violent Acres and I have been reading through it for the last 45 minutes or so and find it great.

She has a series of writings about how to save money and become financially independent. It is pretty great. It also stroked my ego because it made me realize that I actually financially independent which I always take for granted.

The first part of the series is called: Is Your Job Ruining Your Life?. Do yourself a favor and read it. If you are going to do one thing today you should read this article, then go into work tomorrow and quit your fucking job.

Today I actually worked a full day which is a damn rare thing. Every day I work I probably add about $1-5 to my pocket, every day, for the next few years, maybe even longer. The internet is an amazing place which allows you to build something successful, and as long as you do it right, you can reap the benifits of your work for years to come.

The other day I checked my CJ account and saw that I made 3 sales from things I setup years ago. 2 were worth about $50 and another was from a site that has not been updated for about 4 years. To sum it up again, that was about $75 this month from something I did maybe 4 years ago! I wish I would have made a few hundred more sites back then instead of working for other people along the way to my new found freedom.

yeah, that blog basically made me want to go out and kick peoples' dumb little asses.

it's absolutely killing me that the feed (http://www.violentacres.com/feed/) has parsing errors. I need to aggregate, sluts!

Best thing I have read in a LONG time and after looking at how many people are linking to it – I think a lot of people had the same refreshing feeling after reading something brutally honest..
