Work-at-Home Lifestyle Blog | Express Yourself! on Tumblr is Now FoxNet2017

Out with the old. In with the new. "So you're trying hard. Well, try again." ~ Curtis Mayfield

Sometimes where not sharing dispensable thoughts here, I'm at my other blog on Tumblr expressing myself.  If you ever have time to visit, you're welcome there, just like you're welcome here.

UPDATE Sep 2017:
During 2016 my Tumblr account was deleted.  They got their rules.  Follow them or leave! By the end of the year, a new Tumblr blog was set up.  They only deleted my blog.  They didn't banish me!  Evidently, I didn't commit an unforgivable sin, so they let me create another account.  Frankly, I find the Tumblr Staff folks to be very reasonable.  They always answer my messages.  That's very professional and courteous, considering I got a free account.  Wonder how they treat their paying customers.

My new Tumblr blog is called FoxNet2017.

Much like the other blog it can be considered a lifestyle blog or placed under a general category or niche like "Society and Culture" because it shares whatever happens (current events) or has happened (history) in our world.

Use Flipboard to Publish Your Own Magazine

Been at this work at home American dream since 2007.  Perhaps others would have given up already.  Ten years is a long time.  What can I say?  I believe in unicorns and dreams.  



Most active writers and bloggers have learned the guiding principle is:  "Content is king.  Distribution is queen."  In applying that principle, it's good to try out tools and resources that are constantly being made available to improve one's content marketing strategy.    That's why I'm happy to show you how I'm using Flipboard, a tool that allows you to publish your own magazine.  Use it to share (or distribute) your blog posts and your articles, to curate similar links and present the content in a polished classy-looking magazine that others can subscribe to or follow.  Check out my Flipboard magazines.

Advice for Newbie Bloggers ~ 5 Tips That Bear Repeating

This post to encourage others out there who may have their mind set to tread this path to making money online. It is extremely easy to get discouraged and give up. My first blog post at this blog is dated April 9, 2014.  

It's a mess!! All those strikethroughs. I left them to remind me not to give up! Have had a lot of learning experiences on the road to trying to become a successful blogger. Yes, I did say “trying”. I know it's been 3 years but the goal I'm aiming for - generating consistent monthly income from monetized blogs and affiliate marketing websites - has not yet been achieved.



I am an active participant in a discussion forum called SEOClerks, where you can learn and earn about blogging, writing, affiliate marketing, SEO and a myriad of other tips and tricks that aspiring webmasters need to know.  
(Note:  This community is free to join.)  

A question was asked about advice for newbie bloggers.  Below (below the star) is the response I contributed.

What tips do you recommend for beginners in blogging?



Tip #1 ~ I did not know about communities and forums when I started blogging. But I'm glad I eventually found out about their existence. If for no other reason that I no longer feel like I'm all alone.

Groups on Facebook and Communities on Google Plus are OK.  But if you can find a blogging community or a forum, join it. Try to find one where you can learn and earn. You'll get support and can commiserate with fellow members who are also trying to find their way through the blogging maze.

Join an online writing community, also. It's for article writers. Similar to blogging communities. It helps improve your writing skills.  Most of them have revenue-share programs, along with supportive Admin and members.

If you can afford to pay for the blogging courses offered, then go ahead. If you can't, that's where these communities and forums come in handy. Forums like SEOClerks, for example.  :)


Tip #2 Find blogs you really enjoy reading (search via Bloglovin or sites like that or blog directories), subscribe and visit often. Leave comments. Find the bloggers that will approve your comments and will also allow you to associate your blog URL to your name as a backlink. Not kidding. If you leave comments on a blog post, they go into moderation and you never receive approval or your comments don't become visible online, leave that blog in the dust! There are too many other bloggers out there who would happy to have visitors that leave comments behind.  Leave worthwhile comments. Not one-word exclamations or boring one-liners that make the blogger think you didn't even bother to read their post.

Tip #3 ~ There are many free blog publishing platforms to get started. If you are interested in trying to earn income from your blog, find out what the rules are about monetizing your blog. All blogging platforms are not created equal. Some allow certain things and some don't. You break the rules you will have your blog deleted in a heartbeat!

Tip #4 BUDGETING:  Anything that requires a monetary investment and you have the money to pay for it, then go ahead. If you don't have money, use what you have. Your brains, your skills, a laptop (or whatever device you use), and Internet access.

Tip #5 Most important. Don't expect immediate success. Be patient. Be persistent. Persevere.

Can Gandhi find a place in today's Corporate and Management world? | Anas Ebrahem (Reblog)

Gandhian methods, characteristics and ideals? Rituals of visionary leaders? Gandhi was a lawyer so finding a place in today’s Corporate and Management world would likely not be difficult for him to do. But his visionary methods of leadership would probably also get him kicked out of that same world! :) 


Sharing this excellent post by Anas Ebrahem.

Can Gandhi find a place in today's Corporate and Management world? It has been long lasting debate going on with some of my friends in understanding the relevancy of Gandhism in the modern corporate world that talks of stocks, prices, sell-outs and buy-ins everyday. To worsen the state of their minds, a question of...

Pinterest: A Look Back and Now! (2012 - 2015) : Update 2016 : Affiliate Links are Allowed

This post was published here January 13th, 2016.

Having been active on Pinterest since it began, it has been interesting to watch the social media site evolve and quickly gain a footing right next to the established giants like Facebook and Twitter, and carve out their lion's share.




Pinterest: A Look Back and Now! (2012 - 2015)

Back in 2012 this was the latest news concerning the new kid on the block, i.e. Pinterest. ... the increasingly popular pinboarding social network, is able to present a visually arresting interface in large part by using copyrighted images pinned by users.


When this content was published, Pinterest had banned the use of affiliate links.

That was then.  This is now.  

Here's a great article for work at home mom, written by a work at home dad.

Affiliate Marketing Tip: Z is for Zazzle

Here is some advice for the enthusiastic Zazzle sellers (store owners) and affiliates who are and determined to succeed in the world of online business. Supplying a link (below) to an article written by a fellow freelance writer whose advice for becoming a successful online entrepreneur is invaluable. Although you may have to read her pages two or three times. She gets so excited about sharing her success secrets, sometimes her language shoots right over your head. (Love you Jo ! Mean that in a nice way! :) ) Reviewed her Zazzle tips multiple times and did finally latch on to a key piece of advice that proved to be extremely helpful for finding Zazzle products to promote at my blogs as an affiliate advertiser. But her page was written for those who have Zazzle stores, i.e. sellers.


 
Jo's webpage -
How to Add an Affiliated Zazzle Store RSS Feed into Weebly
- was categorized under “ Internet Marketing : Making Money Online ”.

However, at this same site you can find a few more articles specifically devoted to “ Ecommerce Tips : Zazzle Sellers and Tips ”.

Hope this information helps my fellow Zazzle affiliate marketers out there.  (Suggested Zazzle products displayed in feed below.)

My Pick for Infographic of the Day From Manta.com - Freedom & Independence

Mea culpa! Mea culpa! Apologizing to Manta.com for not spreading the love. In my defense? 
  • Excuse #1: A newbie (or inexperienced entrepreneur) to the world of online business.
  • Excuse #2: Home business blogs were not up and running - at the time when my websites were listed in their directory back in 2011.

Four years later, on a roll with my homebiz projects and know enough now to let others know that if you are a small business owner, home business entrepreneur, WAHM, whatever! ... Take advantage of the resources and services this company has to offer. Sharing this gem from their blog, my pick as an "Infographic of the Day".

If you are an American small business person and don't get to watch CNBC (or any other business new channel, for that matter), then you should follow the Manta blog. It will keep you informed and current.

Isn't this infographic awesome?

Paper.li is a tool that helps you publish your own online newspaper. How cool is that? You can create and publish your very own "Daily Planet" with news items of interest to you that might be of interest to other readers also.

So far I've generated four different papers - covering topics like freelance writing, Pinterest, home business or work at home articles, tips, etc.



paper.li logoUsing the Paper.li publishing tool, each week (set to the date to every Sunday), a newspaper is published which summarizes my Twitter activity - not all, just some highlights.



This week's publication for Sunday, April 26, these are the headlines:

  • 10 Businesses You Can Run from Anywhere on Earth (And Start Today)
  • Confessions of a Cookbook Collector
  • Naples: The Birthplace of the Modern Pizza
  • Citrine Earrings
  • The Best Thai in Middle Tennessee
