OT Post: Money Money Money

Good day dear readers (are there any of you still out there?). It's been a month since my last post, and I haven't been quite as active, photographically speaking, outside my work as of late. Nothing much to blog about, at least not photography related. I try to reserve this blog just for my photography and anything related to it, but indulge me this random entry.

I've been thinking  lot about other options for making a little more cash on the side. We have to face facts. :) As much fun as living life day to day is, and going to clubs and being a lensman there, we're all getting older. 

I was wondering about putting together a photobooth. Something I could rent out, for small events and the like. It's been getting pretty popular as of late. All the weddings I've gone to has had them in one form or another. By the way, if anyone has contacts or ideas on how to start one, I'd love to here from you. 
   So far the little bit of research I've done requires some investment, in hardware and software. I wonder if there's a way to open source a photobooth set-up.

I've also tried my hand at stock photography. So far I've only got a couple shots uploaded on istock, and they haven't quite earned me enough to be able to withdraw the sales from there. Hmmm. I should seriously take a second look at this avenue of extra income.

A couple of years ago I got a booklet on invest stocks. Heaven knows where it is now. I haven't considered this avenue much, as I've nearly zero knowledge about it. I've stumbled upon an interesting site though, which would give any one top penny stock picks. Customer reviews seem promising, though I find myself apprehensive, since this will take some time and maybe more knowledge investment than I think I am willing to allow myself, but who knows? This might be another way to go.

Then there's the lottery. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Anyway, just for image content...
