I ended up sinking way too much time and money into my website, which has put me in into a poor place. It doesn't help my ad impressions do really well one day, then zero zero zero zero for the next couple of days.
I've started selling stuff on eBay and have been doing OK. made roughly $50 so far, but not enough to cover rent or bills.
I've also tried signing up to oDesk for freelancing work, and despite putting in 8 applications; I've found the job was against oDesk's rules (this happened twice), or had no response to my applications.
What am I doing wrong? :/
