$$$



::Sigh::

Things haven't been going so well at work lately. It's been extremely slow. Fortunately, Pooh is paid hourly and so at least his paycheck is consistent. Mine, however, is really unpredictable. I took a major hit last week and so I was pretty bummed when I saw my stub. It's pretty depressing when you see a negative dollar amount under commissions. Bleh. My co-workers have been complaining about there being a recession and it's screwing us all over. I'm trying not to think about it and just try to work as hard as I can.

I honestly don't know what to do. I was at work today...sitting at my desk...prospecting, emailing, making calls, etc. I felt like I was getting nowhere. I literally felt like I was stuck and in a rut. I was in a glass case of emotion. I'm ranting. I know, but I just feel like venting. I'm human. :P I know eventually it will get better, but my stack of bills won't wait around to get paid.

I began thinking of other ways to generate income. I started thinking about perhaps selling my paintings, or maybe taking up some of the random email offers to do porn. Lol. I also thought maybe I could reveal my occupation on my blog and have you guys buy from me, but I'm afraid that might jeapardize my employment. :P Then I starting being silly and thought maybe I could try and invent something. I made pretty rediculous doodles on some post-its on my desk.

I'd paint more...but unfortunately I'm low on media and would have to buy more to create pieces. I know it's an investment that pays out in the end, but then I'd have to find people to buy them.

I'd do porn, but I'm kind of afraid of Tigguhh being on video for the world to see and judge. I guess I shouldn't really care since I have nude images of myself all over the place. One of my friends messaged me a couple days ago saying he was exchanging pics with someone online and the guy sent him a pic of me. He was like "omg that's my friend!...and he's naked!!!" From what I've heard, porn doesn't pay well unless you are working a lot of gigs consistently. Anyway, it was just a thought.

What do you think?

Would you buy one of my paintings?



What would you think if Tigguhh did porn?

" He was like 'omg that's my friend!...and he's naked!!!' "

hilarious.

I'm not really into paintings so I probably won't.

As for porn...I'd say some of your readers will be biased and want to see it. :p
But they'll probably prefer if it was you and Pooh.

Are non-porn temp jobs out of the question?

i know how you feel. i also work on commission and im way far below my target... ive been calling in sick just to lessen my target commission but it aint much... :(

recession is just a phase. things will get better. expect your job (even though i have no idea what it really is) to be a hit come april coz people would be getting their stimulus thingy. :)

advanced happy easter to you and pooh!!!

Petie said...

I actually really like your art piece. Have you tried putting some up in a gallery?

I don't usually buy porn.. but I'd buy Tigguh porn =)

Rofie said...

Porn is definitely a no no!

Pooh would be ok with you doing porn??

remcyl said...

as for the whole painting thing, I think a lot of attention should be given to it for it to pay off well in the end.

As for porn, as much as everyone would drool over you doing it, I'd pass on this. Erase it from your options even. I think leaving the world in questions is better. dont you think?

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your blog. For some reason after randomly checking out your blog a couple of months ago, I got hooked and kept on coming back. So keep up the good work!

I also wanted to comment on your post regarding doing porn. Its not a very good idea. Ive gotten offers myself, but it aint a great way to make money. You're right, unless you do it consistently. Your credibility and reputation would just be at stake.

As they say, things will get better. So just hold on!

omg... i'm happy to see such comments... hahaha...

i'd agree... no to porn... i think that's too much...

your painting is great! :)

if you have a collection, then you can start selling... if you ain't got one or a lot to have one, then maybe it's time for you to start. it's not really necessary for you to start now but at least you'll have something for your future.

tiggah,

no to porn, i think you are great the way you are, like we do not know much about you...we don't know your job, your situation...who you really are....but we know you and pooh are truly lovely great husbands to each other...then occasionally you would appear as the sexy tigguh.

as for money, you don't really need alot do you? at least pooh can somehow chip in the survival fees....what about other career options? admin job? customer service but non-sales? hotel service line? i think you would make a great air steward?

as for painting...well, it is difficult to earn alot as a painter, that's all i've got to say...treat it as a hobby?

well....all the best! may you see positivity soon!

Evan said...

I love your blog; you should def. make $$ off this blog somehow, ive got no prob with porn, but yknow theres plenty of ways to make your readers cough up some dough.

doing porn is not a good option to generate income. you've been with Pooh for few years and your relationship is strong and solid. porn is something which might jeopardise the relationship.

i'm sure things will get better. now it's like a period of transition. it's rough but the whole thing will turn smooth again soon.

you have potential in painting and perhaps you could put more time and effort into it. no pain no gain.

I luv tiggah's blog too. I like it's 'full-access' / 'laid-back' honesty. The porn thing ?? maybe too big a down-side. But the art thing ?? I like the torso that's pictured, but I notice you didn't offer any kind of idea what you charge ?? What's the price of that painting ?? Amateurhunk has recently started a 'paid' site, that features his full-frontal photos and vids.. I'd love to watch you and pooh get your 'freak' on.. and would pay for the priviledge. Maybe others would too. Unlike your other fans, I think the economic slow-down is here for awhile, but I hope your turn-around comes soon. good luck !

what if you had ads on your site? is that possible?

I have been a reader of your blog for several months now. I find the love you share with Pooh a indication of your true character.It's great to see such love and devotion to one another. I too have had hard times in the past and would like to help out in some way financially. If you give some information on how to get some funds to you I would be glad to help the best I can.

publish your own porn, Pooh can direct, make it creative, sell it on DVD off the back of this blog. I'd buy Tigguhh porn for a dollar, lol.

No seriously, the porn option is not a good one, and certainly don't go to a producer or studio as this will not be a happy place for you.

The art route will be much more fulfiling, it may not make you much money now, but persist at it and who knows where it will take you in the future. As long as you enjoy doing it and find that special energy within creating that makes you want to keep creating more and more, you'll be just fine!

Porn is a great idea. I often think that every boy in Japan must be making porn, at one time. They seem to have thousands of guys, every week. It doesn't appear to have done them any harm; a year later, you'll probably look different, anyway. I might buy a painting. Are they oils on canvas? I'd need to see a color photo, and the size. What's the price range? I met a guy here who smelled great, and had a gallery to sell his paintings. He wanted $1K for a piece of ass. I wanted it that bad, and ended up wasting that much out drinking that night anyway, but I felt that giving in at that price would have screwed up the whole market. Hell, he wanted to be fucked, anyway.

fried-penoy said...

Hmm, i know you've got a very substantial reader base. They've been following your life as you blog it for the past, what?, couple of months or more? I think posting some sort of auction here would be a great idea, Tigz. You've peaked a lot of people's interest that im sure they'd just jump at the opportunity to own some official Tigz and Pooh stuff.

Im not kidding.

I don't think you're really *that* serious about the porn thing anyway, so i wont comment about that.

fried-penoy said...

oops, fried_penoy is also Fafi. ;)

It'll get better, tigz. How bout earning somethin extra by teaching dance?

Try to see this as a learning experience. When business is good, set aside a certain amount of money every month for a rainy day or other emergency. Can you get an advanced degree or certification that might make you more competitive or allow you to change pursuits?
If you add up what you spend on liquor per month at bars or clubs, you can buy it at home and have friends over or just the 2 of you for a lot less money. Learning to cook great meals together at home is incredibly romantic,and you literally get a taste of success. The $40-$50 a casual restaurant meal costs still buys a lot of filet mignons or strip steaks for several meals at home, not just one.
I have no idea what sales job you have, but if you sat anywhere near me, I'd be powerless not to order a dozen of everything!( I hope you don't sell caskets). You have the face of an angel and someone who loves you like crazy, don't even think about porn.
Today and every day, I wish you guys all the best.

Alwino said...

tiggah and pooh porn will be great. but i won't want to see tiggah or Poo h with other guys having fun together tho....

don't give up easily, i like your painting, coz i paint too, just nobody wants to buy...

Anonymous said...

TIggaahhhh, its Mr. long comment

Selling your artwork could possibly be helpful for you and maybe a little fun as well. I think that might be a good idea


As for the porn, like most are saying, i would say no to that Your fine just the way you are, we dont need you to get invaded.

And for the near future i suppose its less dining out for you and saving for the meantime? :) We all go through those strapped times =\ i get paid tomorrow, feels like forever since i last had my paycheck. But yes keep venting and having crazy thoughts but keep doing what your doing.

goooodnight Mr.longcomment

Todd said...

Use your blogging popularity and produce and distribute your own porn on your own site. That way, you make all the money. To establish a pay-per-view site isn't that hard or expensive. Might be worth checking into.

And I agree with fried-peony. You should be teaching dance, or auditioning for dance positions.

GomezPatchouly said...

Gosh, do you really read all of these comments? Stay out of porn. It will be the end of Tiggah and Pooh. This is something I have strong feelings about, since I believe blogs should be free, but you can always pimp out your blog. I have no idea what kind of money is involved, but plenty of other blogs have ads coming out their...well, you get the idea. As I say, I have always believed blogs should stay away from overt advertising, but it is a suggestion you may want to look into. Love you guys.

You could always strip. It ties in dancing with the porn industry sort of.

hi there. i am a forever fan of pooh and you...i agree, less dinig out for a while..try to stick to a budget...you know... these times are tough but we have to keep going... i would buy tiggah and pooh porn ONLY!!! in other words...stay out of it!!!!

Become a conglomerate. Do both.

Patric said...

I think Tiggah, in whatever angle we view it you are a very talented artist, in blogging, in painting, in modeling, in writing. So definitely I have no doubt that you will not be able to find a solution to the current situation. I totally understand how you feel. As a friend, I would advise you to follow your heart. Talk it over with pooh, and see what he thinks. Listen to his advise, he knows the situation more and at the end of the day he is the only single person that will really be there for you. On a business perspective, one readers had suggested the Tiggah and Pooh collectibles, that is a great idea, one way of tapping into your fan base. Blog Donations always work, readers realize that blogging is a hard job, its an everyday thing and your postings had always been very entertaining so I think that will work, Your painting will definitely sell. Tap on that creativity, contact the local art shops, complete a collections and do an exhibit. Use the blog to sell your paintings as well. As for doing porn. My advise, talk it over with Pooh, and see what he thinks. You're readers basically knows and understands not because you had shared your photos on the net would mean that we know you. Basically Tiggah, nobody knows the real you. Nobody knows how you care, how you feel, and how you love. It is only you and pooh. So it doesnt mean that because we had seen your naked picture would mean that we know you. No. Same thing will follow if in case you decide to do porn. It is just a job, in all angles. And it is not really, you, because at the end of the day, the real Tiggah will go home and pooh will be there to give him a hug.
