A Shot of Me in Bed!
Porn in Exchange for Cash

I told you a long time ago that if you gave me money I would give you porn.

And then I didn’t give you porn because I already had your money.

I need more money.

So I have your porn. It’s a picture of me in bed.

But you must promise, that if you look at it you will do the right thing and donate money to my cause.  My cause by the way, is me. Yes I have advertising. No it doesn’t pay very much.  And it won’t until I get more readers.  Which no doubt will happen.  Probably right around the time I show my porn.

Are you ready?  This is all very embarrassing for me, but a promise is a promise and a gal’s gotta make money somehow.  There’s a huge, old historic home in town that I often say I’d happily prostitute myself for, so this bedroom shot really isn’t such a big deal.

(scroll down)


There you have it. As promised. Your porn. Me in bed.

Now pay up.

Think of me like a busker.  Through my posts, have I entertained you?  Have I made you laugh?  Have I taught you something?  If so, throw a few dollars in the hat by clicking the button below.


Now, for those of you who’d like to donate more than a few dollars …

For any donations over $100 I will proudly wear a tee shirt with your company logo on it (which you will provide) in either one of my video or photo tutorial posts.


For any donation over $50 I will send a “shout out” for you in one of my Friday posts. Want me to say Happy Birthday to someone from you?  I’ll do it in a very public way in a Friday post.  Want me to break up with someone for you?  I’ll do it in a Friday post. Whatever your “shout out” needs, we’ll work something out.

All other donations, get a sincere thank you email. And I truly do sincerely thank you. Without your donations, without your reading this site, without your hilarious comments, I couldn’t create The Art of Doing Stuff. I sometimes think the comments are the only part of my posts my mother reads. (I happen to think I have the best commenters ever)

Have a great weekend everyone!   And if you can’t donate, don’t worry. I won’t hold it against you.  Although if you don’t, I may be forced to post more porn.  And I’m pretty sure neither one of us wants that.

(new readers: I’ve only done this begging thing once before, it’s not like it’s a regular occurrence so don’t worry)

    I was expecting a flower bed πŸ˜‰

    • Karen says:

      LOL. That would have been far less embarrassing. Just so everyone knows, my boyfriend kindly took that picture and proceeded to show just about everyone he knew from co-workers to relatives. So … half the world has already seen it. He’s kind that way. ~ karen

  2. Mrs.W says:

    I’ve just today found your blog, having Stumble!d upon TAofDS. Karen, I’ve been getting to know you reading the archives. Could I pass up the chance to see you in bed? I could not…and so now I guess I should pay since I did play. It is the right thing to do. I happily donate to support The Art of Doing Stuff, and I look forward to your next porn post.

    thank YOU.

    • Karen says:

      LOL. Well I feel bad. If you’re brand new here you can wait until the next round to donate if you like. Hopefully there will not be another round! Your payment can be that you come back to the site again and again. πŸ™‚ Unless of course you were going to donate thousands of dollars. In which case, start clicking that button!

    • Mrs.W says:

      I click on the “donate now” button…not sure what to do after I click paypal link. I sign into my account, then what? any suggestions for what I may be doing wrong?

      • Karen says:

        Mrs. W – I had a mishap with my button but it should be fixed now. What should appear is a “donate to The Art of Doing Stuff” page. You simply type in any amount you like and click “update total”. That’s it!

        • Mrs.W says:

          done. button works like a charm.
          I’m still laughing about your cowlick! I have two that need taming.

          good night, from Massachusetts

        • Karen says:

          Mrs. W – Thank you so much. I just received your generous donation. Good luck with your cowlicks. Blech. ~ karen

  3. If there were a few beer cans on the bed, I’d be inclined. Will a guest post on my site be an acceptable substitute?

  4. Nicole says:

    I sincerely want someone to have you break up with someone for a friday post.

  5. Sk Farm Girl says:

    Oh, our little precious, sleeping so sweetly, isn’t she just adorable! And look her poosa-cat is cuddled right in beside her; he’s purring, she’s snorring – I’m getting all tearey eyed. Our little girl is getting all grown up – sigh πŸ™ Hmmm . . . I see “Mr” Karen’s side of the bed doesn’t look to0 rumpled, however, judging by the spread-eagle, stretched out across the bed slumbering pose of Princess Karen, he gets kicked out of bed early. Cute, love it! Oh could I show you a real hum-dinger picture of me after a night of negotiating the purchase of a house over a REALLY big bottle of rum. Didn’t get the house in the end; just shares in Tylnol – LOL! Totally diggin’ the jammies!

  6. Julie shinnick says:

    The funniest thing was that my computer targeted your email as junk, probably cos you mentioned the word ‘porn’ lol
    Well done for upsetting the Mac!

  7. CJ says:

    I looked, I coughed up πŸ™‚

    But mostly because you make me laugh, alot, and my husband too and because my cat loved listening to the bird noises from your chicken cam!

  8. CJ says:

    PS glad to see you’re getting some rest too

  9. Jessica says:

    I’ll gladly donate every time you ask. You are my favorite blogger by far! I just wish I was able to convince my company to unblock your live feed — alas, I was not — something about “being a distraction.”

  10. Alot of bad bed stuff going around…and at least you are never alone in bed..I should know. I’m nev er alone and I look just like you….

  11. Korrine says:

    happy to donate since your site is the second page i open every morning (after facebook). i am working on my own business so next time the ad plug deal comes up i should be ready to jump on it. thank you for all you do!

  12. Victoria says:

    happy to donate, sorry it can’t be more, but I do want to thank you for everything you bring into my life, joy, laughter, chicken poop, and porn πŸ™‚

  13. Liz S. says:

    Donated $2 to the cause. Would have donated more but I have to get my car fixed after the horrible hail storm we had here on Wednesday that dented my car from end to end.

  14. Alexandra Dare says:

    I donated $2.09 whopping USD.

    I’m developing a cosmetic product line that might lend itself to being advertised on your blog πŸ™‚ The line will be unique and vintage-y and homemade, so I think you’re readers might be impressed. I’ll keep you updated, but more of my money could be going into your pocket very, very soon πŸ˜€

  15. Manuel says:

    You might get a ton of hits because of the whole “porn” word but very nice pajamas!

  16. Mindy says:

    LOL! You’re a genius.

  17. $50 is a small price to pay for the laughs, REALLY good tips and dollar store love that you bring to us everyday. You have inpsired me to start my own blog (it’s not as crafty or chicken-y) and for that, I am forever grateful.

  18. Mindy says:

    I was out in the garden still laughing at this. I need money too. A lot. Not a lot of money, I need money a lot. I’ll take 10% of your donations for one months worth of weekly plugs of your blog on my blog. :o)

  19. Amy in StL says:

    I love your blog. You not only have inspired me to seriously clean house – I might be a collector of stuff – but you’ve shown me how to still indulge my love of collecting stuff but not have it overwhelm my little condo. Since I started visiting here, I’ve donated several jeep loads of stuff to Goodwill and I’m not finished. Definitely worth the donation. (I could be a hoarder if I didn’t have friends who came to visit.)

  20. Teshia says:

    Ahh…. At first (remember, I’m new… just in case you forgot) I was wondering what the heck this post was and if I was going to be disappointed by it because I’ve come to just LOVE your blog but I should have known it was going to crack me up.

    Not that I was expecting to click and see you half naked. Considering there was a cat in the picture, I thank you VERY much for that.

    On a serious note. I used to run a vBulletin forum. People didn’t realize my cost was nearly $500 a month to run it so anything to recoup the costs was crucial and so appreciated, so I completely understand. Donations keep this hilarious and very-much-helpful blog going – you need to make a living somehow, right? And since Ellen hasn’t called you to co-host her show with her, you’re doing the next best thing by keeping us all entertained through this blog.

    Which makes me think, Ellen should start reading your blog. Maybe she’ll donate. A lot. And send you a shout out on her show. Hey, you never know!

    Donation coming shortly.

  21. Gotta say, this made me laugh, made me think this girl has balls! I didn’t see any in your porn pic though! Why do you need to ask for money? Didn’t you say you were going shopping for a new mercedes? Tell us how much you get okay!


  22. Layne says:


    So I’m on-line surfing for porn…

    But seriously now… this was my first trip to check out your blog but it won’t be the last!!! *grin*

    Made a small donation, truly wish it could be more but I, too, am short on funds… pleaase let me know how the porn works out for you… may have to try it myself! πŸ˜‰

    With Giggles & Gratitude,

    • Karen says:

      Thanks so much Layne! I’m glad it made you laugh as opposed to the turn you off. What with the first post you reading of mine, being a small beg for money. Thanks again and I hope you return soon. Tomorrow for example. ~ karen

    Holy eye-roll.

  24. Denise says:

    I should put you in touch with this guy who sent me an email yesterday.

    He says he wants to share his $8.5M inheritance with me. πŸ˜‰

  25. RenΓ© De Beaumarchais says:

    I have a Siamese too!

  26. Karen Duke says:

    looking forward to receiving your posts by e-mail, I’m a big fan!
