Over the last few weeks I have gotten out of my usual blogging routine. I had some minor surgery and then a few days later went to scout camp for a week to recuperate. As a result, I have not posted as faithfully as I would have liked to. Even worse than my neglect for my own blog is the long term trend of neglect towards the many blogs I like to follow. Over the last couple of months I have had a hard time visiting them. I am sorry about this and will commit to visit the 100 or so blogs I follow within the next 30 days.
Some of you might ask how I will be able to do this while working two jobs and trying to carry out my other family, community, and church responsibilities. I will probably drop more important things in order to make the time. Being "busy" is a relative thing. Occasionally I will run across a person who is complaining about how busy they are. They will say something like "I'm just swamped, I'm a newlywed, in school, and working part time". What I would give to experience that again. That person's nightmare is my dream vacation and their sympathy story with sad background violins quickly turns into amusing circus music as I laugh at their comment. I'm not trying to be rude or outdo anyone, but just be careful who you complain to about certain things.
As busy as I think I am, my wife has an even more hectic schedule than I do. She is beyond burning the candle at both ends, she has actually dropped her candle in a lava pit. I know if we keep up our insane schedules then we will either burn out or eventually go postal. I just hope that doesn't happen when someone is attempting to tell us how busy their life is.
I have learned that one of the main reasons why people are so busy is because of trying to earn enough money to survive, I'm pretty sure my wife and I would still work 4 jobs even if we were multi-millionaires-NOT! So in an effort to relieve some stress, I am going to open up a primo advertising spot on my blog. For only $999 per month you can rent some space on Chaka's World and get you message out to nearly half a dozen people every single day!
I am expecting responses from companies like Nike, McDonalds, Coke, and Disneyland, but if those don't pan out I will drop the price for teenagers who are willing to pay a couple bucks to announce things like "Steve Holt Rules!" Does this count as Internet panhandling?
