Comic Book Collection

Omg, my post didn't save! I was 700 words in when I hit the wrong button when my phone slipped.

Anyway here is the shot, short version of how I was getting screwed when I went to sell my comics today.

Well I drive an hour and a half to this shop, which seemed like nice people just to lazy and busy to do the research on all the 250 comics I had.

One guy didn't even stop playing a video game, the one assisting me was busy with other issues like the credit card processor was not working and they had printer issues. So basically he only looked up the top ten comics which were not worth much, enough that they would only make a dollar profit, and a couple that were worth  $4.

He stopped looking them up and tried offering me $0.10 each. That made my rear hurt and kind of pissed me off a bit. However I can understand not wanting to look up to value of all 250+ comics that was after all my problem with the whole thing, that and the scanning, researching, listing, and shipping thing.

I would have liked to get  $1.75 each which would still be a good loss for me, but hey I need the money, going through a divorce so I need as much money as I can get.

I would have liked to have gotten  $500. I'm sure that if you knew the right person, they would pay more just to have some of these, but finding the right person is a lot of work and time that I don't have.

So I will split the lot of comics up by publisher and sell them on Craigslist and Facebook groups, I may make a little bit more that way and incur less fees. I will have to meet the buyers at a public place because sometimes it's not safe to have people you don't know come to your house or you over to their's.

Anyway I will get to work cataloging the whole collection, maybe I will get lucky enough a have a few that would be worth a few thousand and find an honest buyer, that won't royally screw me.

I don't mind taking less than something is worth but getting pennies on the dollar is just plain stupid. I figure if I sell these I could meet the buyer at the Walmart in Saraland, Jackson, or Thomasville Alabama. Maybe even a gas station or fast food restaurant in between.

Download my Short Guide (7 Steps to Making Money Online)

I whipped up a short guide on making money online, you can download it here. Being that I'm broke all the time no matter how much money I get I figured I would share with you some of the ways I make money online.

It's a small pdf and while it does contain some affiliate products they come after the free information if anyone is interested in them please order from my links, as I've been unemployed sense February 2016 and still have not found a full-time job plus my last unemployment check will be in next week, a whole $125 and I can't file again until March 2017.

Check out my website which will be under-going a redesign to make it more user friendly.

Life Just Keeps Getting Worse

 Recently my wife and I separated (which is completely MY fault) and I moved in with my dad which I hope is not for very long, while I have my own room, king sized bed, and Internet access it just does not feel like home to me. To make matters worse I still haven't found a job and my unemployment is about to run out next week the last payment will only be $125.00 oh joy.

 My efforts to make money on eBay are not going very well either, I don't have much to sell but may send in my comics and let them sell them for me, but I noticed that they have a two week backlog. Anyway I am going to keep trying for jobs and keep working on a book I'm attempting to write, along will gathering up a little scrap here and there to sell. However if I am still unemployed by October 4th I will be going to the Job Fair at Bishop Collage in Mobile because I have a background in the Maritime industry.

 I'm also about to launch an affiliate marketing campaign that I hope will make me some money, but there are not a whole lot of products that I would feel good about promoting, unless I would be willing to use them myself or have used them before. So maybe I won't make thousands a week, but I really wouldn't mind a couple hundred. My goal is to earn about $600-$700 a day but that is through a whole host of things.

 I will be redoing my website to make it more user friendly in hopes that I can earn a few hundred a week from it, and maybe a hundred or two a month from this blog which would be awesome plus a little on the side from eBay and odd jobs.
