Sad Emoji
Not a human friend, but an old friend nonetheless. Way back before my meltdown and my nearly complete disappearance from the world wide web, I had begun developing an interest in traditional affiliate marketing..not the online MLMs that call themselves affiliate programs to hide their true nature, but real affiliate marketing selling products and services that are offered through networks such as ShareASale, CJ, LinkShare, etc. As I continue to climb back into the affiliate marketing niche, I have started revisiting some of the old forums and resources that I had bookmarked to see if they were still around and […]

The passing of an old friend

Thinking Allowed 3
Although I’m currently behind last month’s pace for posting, I’ve been working a good bit behind the scenes on my old Work At Home Network site and Pittsburgh Clicks, trying to get the latter set up to start promoting locally since much of the stuff on it won’t involve affiliate marketing which is not permitted on craigslist. The quest continues to really nail down which site(s) I’ll be focusing on the most. The more I continue to be active online, the more I continue to gravitate towards helping people figure things out, something I mentioned being one of my initial goals […]

That’s a little struggle I’m encountering in my journey back to the living. I’ve been so inactive in life for so long, much of my passion has dimmed. Don’t get […]

“Do what you love”, but what is it?

Which way do I go?
Okay, so I may still be stalling in taking action and moving forward with my review site. It will be a huge undertaking and very labor intensive, so I can definitely understand my hesitation. I’ll get past it, but in the meantime I decided I would finally move my Work At Home Network domain over to Wealthy Affiliate hosting and start reviving the site that I had let languish for years after I burned out online a while back. There is a ton of sentimental attachment to that domain. On July 5 of this year, I will have owned it for […]

Sidetracked, but okay with it

Happy New Year 2016
Happy New Year everyone. I hope your celebrations were safe and enjoyable. At our house, I arrived home from work a little before 11:00 PM, so there wasn’t much time to kill before the ball dropped. We aren’t the head out and party in the New Year type, so I had picked up a magnum of Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante. We like our sparkling wine on New Year’s Eve. 🙂 Due to the relatively tough times we’ve let our situation devolve into over the last 20 years or so, it’s pretty much been a running joke on New Year’s […]

Ready or not, 2016 is here
