“Hey Jonathan,” you say. “It’s been awhile since your last post.”

“Well, hypothetical person, that’s because I’m done. Week 52 was my final entry. I figure 52 weeks is a full year, so that’s a pretty good place to call it quits.”

“So that’s it?! You’re just leaving Odd Jobs behind? What about all your loyal, loving fans? Both of them will be very disappointed.”

“You mean my mom and dad, don’t you?”

“Yeah.”

“Well I’m not quite done. Now I’m working on Odd Jobs, the book. I’m compiling my favorite entries– all of which I’ve gone back and punched up/rewritten to make as good as possible– along with new entries for gigs I’ve worked but never written about online. The book will also be about my life story over the last few years. It may sound stupid, but Odd Jobs has really changed my life, and I wanted to share that experience. Finally, I’ll have several sections of more practical advice. Things I’ve learned about financial management, saving money, making money and getting work. I truly believe that even if you just read the book for those practical sections, you will make back far more than the book will cost you.”

“Woah, woah, what is this a sales pitch?”

“Actually, yeah it is. I’m keeping up eight of the last twelve entries I wrote for this site, but if you want to see way way more, you should totally buy my book. It will include entries like the time I dressed up in a bikini to deliver a copy of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, the time I panhandled as a homeless man, and the time I played in the World Series of Poker Main Event.”

“I feel like we’re not even having a conversation anymore. You’re just in total sales mode.”

“If you wanna be notified when the book finally comes out, sign up for the mailing list below. My goal is to finish by the end of 2014, which realistically probably means it’ll be done in early 2015. Thank you so much to everyone who has read and supported this blog over the years, it really means a lot to me, and I hope you enjoy the book.”

“Okay, now you’re not even talking to me.”

“Wait, who are you?”
