Modern Day Arabs and Their Father Abraham


Genealogy has been and always will be a topic of interest to human beings. We are all curious about our beginnings or origins. These days some even pay for expensive DNA tests to see if they can determine their ancestry. Others comb through paper documents, computerized records, etc. and/or combine the findings of the research of historical records with the scientific test results to confirm their lineage. Some people search the scriptures.



Français : Agar et Ismaël dans le désert (1820...
We know the Hebrew patriarch Abraham had many sons and that God promised him that his descendants would be innumerable.  One of his sons was Ishmael born to him by Hagar, the Egyptian slave, who served as a surrogate mother for Sarah, his wife.  

The Ishmaelites were, are, or should be the descendants of Ishmael. For genealogy purposes, this matter seems pretty cut and dry. But who are the true Ishmaelites?

You Can Earn Income From Writing

I am active in various Facebook Groups and Google Plus communities which share blogging and writing tips and tricks, work at home advice, etc.

One question that pops up consistently is:
  • What are the best sites to earn from your writing?


The question would be a lot easier to answer if everybody agreed on one uniform definition for “best”.

My idea of “best” might be another person's idea of “mediocre” because the particular sites that I think are terrific don't really suit the other person's criteria for making money consistently and achieving their financial goals.

So the “best” that I can do is say the best sites that have worked for me.

perfect gift for teacher, students, professor, business man, writer, blogger 


Forum CoinPostloop, and MyLot are social sites and/or forums that have paid me consistently.  The easiest way to earn at these sites is to just be active.  If you are active on social media and earn nothing; then you can be socially active at these sites and get paid for it.

 My HUBs or articles published at HUBPages generate income.  As do my pages and posts at WizzleyWritedge, and Daily Two Cents.  The income is earned mainly via a Google Ad Sense revenue-share plan.  Publish evergreen content at these sites and then let the content generate residual income, while you work on other writing and blogging projects. 

Medium is a site I use mainly to share republished content and redirect traffic to my primary income-earning websites. However, if you are a good writer you might be able to make good money if you sign up for their Medium Partner Program. I have not signed up as yet, but here is what someone else has said about their experience.


Listverse is another writing opportunity: Write & Get Paid $100. Sound too good to be true? It's true! I checked.

However, at this point, Medium and Listverse are on my To Do List.  I need to work up the courage up to submit my work. The competition is overwhelming and I'm terrified of rejection. I just need to get over it!

Anyway! Don't let my fear hold you back! If you've got the confidence and the skills ... Go for it!

Another potential income opportunity that I have yet to embrace is selling articles. I am at SEOClerks (a forum I joined via Postloop) where I see people selling their articles. I haven't tried it, but if they can make money from selling articles, why not me?  This is an income-avenue to be explored in the future.


FINAL POINT:
There are all kinds of writing opportunities out there and newsletters or blogs one can subscribe to for opportunities. I subscribe to Freedom With Writing. Check out this post: 38 Blogs that Pay Writers $50+ for Guest Posts.


Hope you found this post informative.

It's Springtime! Keep It Rosy!

Who doesn't love the spring?  Particularly for the flowers.  My late mother loved gardening.  She especially loved planting roses.  So it's not just the season.  It's for this reason, roses have a sentimental value for me.  In addition, my research for this short blog post disclosed many interesting facts about roses that makes me appreciate these lovely flowers even more.

Did you know?

🌹  Most roses bloom in spring but not all roses bloom in spring.  

🌹  Some roses such as the Rosa "Peace" and the Rosa "Radrazz" Knock Out are repeat bloomers or continuous bloomers and bloom at various times throughout the year.  Not just during the spring.

🌹  Do you know how to care for your roses in spring?  Protecting, pruning, etc.?  Do you know how to mix your own rose food?  Learn how.  Rose gardening tips.

🌹  Did you know that every rose color has a special meaning or symbolism?  For example:  The blue rose symbolizes hope and complexity.  Curious to know about the white, the red, the pink, the purple, the black and the green?  Yes, there are green roses.  In fact, there's one green rose that's called St. Patricks' Rose.  (Top 10 Most Beautiful Green Roses.)


https://wizzley.com/roses/?pr=4530


🌹  Did you know roses could be eaten?  Yes, there are many edible flowers.  But I never thought about eating a rose.  Have you?


  • FACT: “Roses have been used in cooking for thousands of years and they continue to be a staple in Bulgaria, Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia, Iran, and northern India.”

Online Writing Communities : HUBPages Earnings Can Be Inherited

A while back I read a complaint that someone had passed away but that the site was still earning income from the deceased writer's articles.

First of all, though that may sound not quite “kosher”, there's actually nothing wrong or illegal with doing that. If the writer did not make any provisions for the account to be transferred to a “beneficiary” then earnings go to the site owners. Who else?

Today, however, I found this detailed information that made it plain what the site's policy and procedures are. If you happen to be a HUBPages Contributor, “Your HUBPages Income Can Be Inherited”.  This is not "my story".  It is the journey of another HP Contributor, Amy (Happymommy2520).  If you're interested in my journey, see the links below.


Appreciate the clarification. Good to know and good to know what to do with my HUBs. The content is evergreen and my HUBs do earn income, slowly but surely. There's no need to delete them after I'm gone.  No doubt the residual income would be welcomed.

Heed Dr. Dobson's Advice on Parenting

Dr. James Dobson is a well-known psychologist who specializes in advice on parenting.


Focus on the Family, his non-profit ministry provide counseling and resources on marriage, parenting and other family matters; and he has also authored several books on these topics.

Dr. James Dobson is a well-known psychologist and the founder of Focus on the Family, a non-profit ministry that supplies advice and resources on marriage, parenting and other family matters. He describes two types of children: the compliant child - an obedient child that heeds good advice and follows a path to peace; versus the defiant child - who is the exact opposite. He says most children are "in between" those two extremes.


English: James Dobson.English: James Dobson. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Having given birth to eleven children - all living - all raised except for one - I can state unequivocally that Dr. Dobson is correct. Most children are between the two extremes. However, if you happen to get one that is wholly defiant - my advice is ... PRAY!! Pray you survive them until they reach the age of eighteen and then ... send them on their way!


You see children must realize that one day if they live, they will be the same age as mommy and daddy. If they have children of their own, mommy and daddy will no longer have to explain why the "rules" were so flipping ludicrous!! There are many who claim to have programs that work if you happen to be raising a difficult and trying child. Some of them will even offer you their programs free of charge. Quite frankly, everybody has to wade through those muddy murky waters on their own. What may work for your family could cause chaos and mayhem in another person's home. So tread very cautiously.


I can tell you that as a young parent, reading the Dobson books was extremely helpful. Many who might not be of the Christian persuasion probably steer clear of his writings. But the advice he offers is very generic and can be applied regardless of one's religious beliefs or nationality or ethnicity.


As I stated earlier, my babies are all full grown now, with only one remaining. In five more years, she'll be stepping out on her own. Five years? That's half a blink of eye. Really it is. My oldest child has already passed the over the hill mark. Back in my day, "over the hill" used to be age 30. It seems like it was just yesterday when we were teaching him how to walk. Though the memories are sweet, of a truth, my husband and I look forward to the "empty nest years" with great anticipation.


But getting to my point: If you are a new parent, and mommy and daddy are no available for you to ask them about the "rules", pick up a book by Dr. Dobson. No doubt you can find one or more at your local library or even a church library. If not, his books are available for purchase online.

Aesop: unclear biography, unwritten fables, timeless morals

This post shares a link from fellow freelance writer Tolovaj – a magical writer who hails from Ljubljana, Slovenia.  Tolovaj doesn’t just publish written material.

"Tolovaj publishes masterpieces!
You can quote me on that.  💓


When you visit the articles, you become instantly mesmerized.  The information is fascinating reading, but the layout and presentation of the images that complement the content is absolutely exquisite! This particular link is to a mini-bio of the famous fabulist, whom we all know as Aesop, but whom we also don’t know very much about.  (???)  To put it in Tolovaj’s words:  "… his fables are much more clear than his biography."

Aesop: unclear biography, no written fables, with timeless morals

http://wizzley.com/aesop/?pr=4530


After reading the article I was moved to remark that if Aesop’s fables are an indication of his character,  he would definitely have been included in my circle of friends. :)
 


Wizzley.com graciously allows me to publish articles at their site.  Take a quick glance at the information on the sidebar.  This is a wonderful online writing community, based in Germany, that welcomes experienced and newbie writers to express their passion!

Residual Income Opportunity - Write for Harlow-McGaw Media

Dec 2017 Update:  The content below the asterisk marks was originally published October 13, 2014. The ladies who owned the site invited me to be a contributor. Since that time they have established several writing sites under the umbrella of Harlow-McGaw Media. There are various writing opportunities. I still have a writer's profile at Daily Two Cents and Writedge but I do not contribute as much as I used to when these sites first began. Other writing work came my way during the year and the projects keep me busy. However, most of my content was evergreen so it is still as relevant in 2017 as it was in previous years. If you are interested in signing up for any of the HM sites, read the post for additional details.

History and Health Advantages of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is clean and natural, and proven to relieve several health issues. A treatment method to consider for anyone thinking about alternative or holistic solutions to healing and health care.

Did you know that:

- Aromatherapy is an ancient art of healing believed to have been developed by the Egyptians.

- Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, used aromatic fumigation to cleanse Athens from the plague.

- A French chemist named Rene Maurice Gattefosset is credited with creating the term “aromatherapy”.

- Aromatherapy is used to treat several health problems: from stress and anxiety to postpartum blues.

One final thought:

September is National Yoga Month and perhaps nobody has made this connection but seems to me Yoga and Aromatherapy would pair quite nicely. Don't you agree?

Write at TreasurePen.com and You Can Earn A Red Cent! (Strikethrough!)

UPDATE June 21, 2017:

For reasons that I have been unable to determine this website disappeared.  So this post and other posts written at this blog tagged TreasurePen.com or TreasurePen, are either my content which I am glad to have saved and published here and/or my first impressions of this site which can now be completely ignored.

No biggie!  These days I'm hanging out at sites like ForumCoin.com

TreasurePen is an online writing platform that pays you to write short posts similar to how you share messages on Facebook or Twitter. All you need is a Google Adsense account. Yes it is a revenue-sharing platform just like all the other bazillion platforms out there. But all the platforms aren't so easy to write for. That's what makes Treasure Pen appealing. 

My first post was published January 2014. Haven't been there quite 6 months, and also have not been extremely active because there are other new sites I am experimenting with as well for contrast and comparison. But this is a legitimate potential income stream for freelance writers and people who work at home.

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.


Republishing Previously Published Content

Information for those who used to contribute to YAHOO Voices before that network was shut down. What many of us liked about the YCN (YAHOO Contributor Network) was that it accepted "previously published articles". What was really great was that payment was actually received for articles that had been sitting at another site for well over a year with almost nothing to show for it!
