    So the deadline is April 1 and that’s no joke. It also happens to be Easter this year. Still, it’s tremendous what you have done to build up P.O.Y. to the point that you hire!!! Astounding. I blog but I’m still a teacher, but I love that too so it’s hard!

    Happy Monday Lindsay,

    This is absolutely awesome. I love to see and hear about bloggers who started their blogging side hustles from humble beginnings just by acting off of creative thoughts and turning those side hustle blog hobby ideas into millions by earning revenue from affiliate marketing and other forms of online advertising. And now, not only have you built your blog from the ground floor up and achieved your side hustling blogging goals, but you’re making a wonderful employment opportunity available to someone who has a like-mind interest as yourself.

    I feel this is a grand time for someone looking to learn about the side hustle and how blogging works to get hired by Lindsay. She’s a wonderful inspiration to DNN and everyone else. I wish I knew years earlier about the awesome power of YouTube video marketing because I probably would’ve been a few million dollars richer today. But hey, someone is going to be a valuable employee soon and a new hire at Skillful Cook.

    All the best to you Lindsay. Supporting you every step of the way! 🙂

Please give her a warm hug on my behalf! Thank you Alana and all the best!! 😀
