I am an independent voter. If you believe voting for outsiders and writing in candidates is a waste of time, comfort yourself with the knowledge that I live in California, where it doesn't matter how any of us votes because this is a one-party state.

I earn the majority of my income from Playboy, where I edit and write for the digital team.
I have also earned income from the following organizations in the last 12 months:
Simply Hired, editor. I edit several articles a week for this job search engine's blog. Before Playboy I also wrote for Simply Hired, but I have ceased all byline writing for publications besides my own blogs since becoming part of Big Bunny.
Spin Public Relations, copy editor and writer. Occasionally edit and write press releases and biographies for Santa Monica-based PR firm.
I also earn a small bit of income from sales of "Full Griswold" and "The Marching Band Refused to Yield" on Amazon, as well as affiliate sales revenue from links posted on www.joedonatelli.com and www.thehumorcolumnist.com.
Freebies: Because my wife is a food/lifestyle journalist, and because I sometimes write about food, we eat free meals at various restaurants throughout Los Angeles. I sometimes write about these restaurants on www.thehumorcolumnist.com. We also sometimes accept free hotel accommodations. I review hot sauces for Playboy, and companies sometimes send me free samples.
