How Hard Is It To Write A Good Book – Affiliate Marketing For Seniors


How hard is it to write a good book?

How hard is it to write a good book? This question was asked of me by someone who is exploring:

  1. Why start a blog in retirement (to market their book or someone else’s material).
  2. Is affiliate marketing for seniors something they can learn


There are good reasons for seniors – you – to want to learn more about writing, writing online, and how to benefit financially from:

  • A memoir focused on your life experience in relation to your attitude  (positive and negative)
  • A memoir focused on a cherished hobby about which you are an expert about execution and products needed for it 
  • A new career with a pleasant ability to work at home 
  • A digital business you can work while traveling or vacationing  


If you’re completely new to the topic of affiliate marketing, click over to my post HERE where I explain the basics. 


Whether you decide to write a book, a memoir, or promote someone else’s book, the methods of affiliate marketing will apply the same. Learning affiliate marketing for seniors will give you the boost you need to become visible online. I learned the correct business approach to blogging with a free account to a training community, and you can do the same. Click on the blue button below.

Affiliate Marketing for Seniors: A Beginner’s Guide to Financial Freedom

 For the purpose of elaborating on how you can learn to blog while writing your own book/memoir, I’ll proceed on the premise that you’re retired, and have at least the 40 hours per week that you used to work, plus how ever many more you choose to use. I will also proceed assuming that you have your free account and you are doing the beginner actions – you are viewing the basic classes.


You’ll find out:

  • This training gives you access to the platform called WordPress on which (virtually) you will build a blog, or web site 
  • This training gives you an enormous community of members to learn along with, and to learn from  – you’re not alone!
  • You will be guided on how to get a domain name – – and that you can have that hosted – or virtually housed – snugly at home in this same community, with excellent technical support

Blogging for Authors: How to Leverage Online Writing to Promote Your Book 

(I haven’t forgotten the question “how hard is it to write a good book“).


All of the following applies whether you are marketing material you created, or somebody else’s material or product. And you can do both on one blog!


Your authorship can be both a challenging and rewarding endeavor. Your difficulties can vary significantly from other writers’, and depend on several factors.


Skill and Experience: If you’re retired, or are towards the end of a career that involved writing, completing a good book won’t be that hard. You may be familiar with the formatting, digital tools, character development, and storytelling techniques.


Note: this background will also contribute to the success of your promotional blog with which you will market your book, or someone else’s written material or physical product for affiliate commissions.


How Long Does It take To Write A Good Book


Even with experience, writing a book is a time-consuming process. Yet you get to choose whether you want to write a 350 page novel, memoir, or a series of short books you can self-publish and promote as you develop your blog.


I mention the series of short books, because you may be earning income from one or more, while you write and promote the next one. Makes sense, right?


Creativity and Inspiration: The ongoing requirement to generate unique and helpful ideas is crucial. Your degree of enthusiasm will help you avoid  writer’s block and help you maintain inspiration.


If you don’t have a theme, or niche interest in mind for a book or a blog, the training I recommend will help you select a successful topic(s) for you to blog about – topics that will earn you affiliate commissions.


Writing, especially a book, is just the first step. Correct guidance followed by practice, in formatting blog posts, decreases the edit and revision of your manuscript/material to achieve clarity, coherence, and overall quality. This will avoid your new career becoming another 9-5 grind!


Perseverance: Writing a book requires discipline. Everyone kind of knows that, right?


Writing a blog requires consistency of a publishing schedule.  This is but one of the factors that search engines take into account when ranking your work (deciding whether to have it visible online or not). You have good days and less good days, depending on what your world at large is doing.


On good days you may get several blog posts written, which you can schedule for publication on days you don’t necessarily get anything written.


Audience and Market: Understanding your target audience – your niche – and the market for your book (or someone else’s) can increase your success. Researching and customizing your content to meet reader expectations can be greatly accelerated with training.


On the training site I recommend there are plenty of classes in research, including the beneficial use of AI tools to help you! This instructional community is constantly updated, keeping the members informed of changes in the cyber world.


In summary, while creating a good book and blog site can be a huge learning curve, your dedication, perseverance, and a love for storytelling or sharing information will ultimately bring you the satisfaction of completing your goals and developing an income from your efforts.

How Much Did You Make In The First 6 Months Of Blogging

How Much Did You Make In The First 6 Months Of Blogging

I’ve often been asked how much did you make in the first 6 months of blogging – and I hate to admit – no money at all! And why was this? What might have helped me make money sooner?
I didn’t know that I needed a step-by-step guide for retirees starting affiliate marketing writing. Or that there even was such a thing!
Would you like to see what that looks like? You make an account – no costs involved – and try some basic classes, to see how this works. 
This page contains affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what the vendor advertises.


Click on the blue button to go there now. 




Fortunately I was referred to that same site I’m recommending you try – what turned out to be the leading affiliate marketing training site on the planet. Yet, before that came along, I did  a couple of things right.
I chose a niche  – an audience of readers – that I knew how to write for. It was based on my previous career, and good education in that then-small market.
Since then it has become a huge market and much more competitive, but my blog remains a good one with some decent authority per the search engines. I was leveraging life experience, which you can do too.

What Were Your First 6 Months of Blogging Like


The second thing I did right, was to simply ride the wave of my enthusiasm and expertise on the topic. I got the idea from stumbling across a text and video instruction package written by someone else. Another expert in my topic.


I read her product which was a digital download, just under $50.00 US at the time, and I discovered if someone bought it through my affiliate link (this was all brand new to me) I made a 50% commission!


The prospect of making some money by writing about something I loved and could offer great tips on, kept me going for a year. ClickBank was the marketplace that provided this digital package, and I will include a link below to an article about that marketing website below. I wanted to avoid income insecurity in my retirement years.


More here about poverty and relative poverty.


Did I have a clue about how to get guaranteed targeted traffic to my blog posts? No! But for 6 months, I wrote 5-6 articles a week, with zero guidance.


For the next six months I was able to broaden my readership by posting the same posts on many large article websites.


I really didn’t know where this was going, until I got an email from ClickBank asking for tax ID, so they could pay me! What a day!

Could You Make $2000 A Month As A Full-Time Blogger


Many do, and even part-time bloggers make this kind of income. The answer to this question depends on what you mean by full-time or part-time.


Can you study/research/write blog posts for up to 20 hours a week while keeping your day job?


Or, if full-time does that mean 40 hours a week or 80 hours a week? And will you learn by trial and error like I did, or will you get step-by-step guide for retirees starting affiliate marketing writing. and save yourself a lot of time and disappointment?


I wasn’t a retiree at the time, but I was thinking ahead and I bet you are too. You can learn all of these elements and start earning affiliate commissions faster than I did:


  • How to write an effective affiliate marketing post
  • Find out about monetizing writing skills
  • You will be exploring the world of affiliate marketing – a big world!
  • For you this could be a retirees’ guide to financial freedom
  • Developing your blog correctly with this beginner’s guide to affiliate marketing
  • Learn about choosing the right affiliate marketing niches
  • Crafting persuasive affiliate marketing posts
  • Sharing expertise through affiliate marketing writing and building a professional business blog


Of course, you will pay for ongoing training, like you do for any worthwhile education. You can choose from a few options how much to pay and how often you can pay. As little as just under $50 a month.


You will go at your own pace, take breaks when you need to, or work as intensively as you want.


There are many tools on this training site to help streamline your progress. 

  • Site Content – a place to write your posts, save post templates, keep word counts, help with outlines – a huge time saver.
  • Jaaxy, a keyword research tool to help you get guaranteed targeted visitors to your posts
  • A niche-finder to help you narrow down your focus, in line with your expertise from life experience, careers or hobbies



Every day the owners and advanced users of the site add trainings in updates every blogger needs to know, including how to use AI – ChatGPT to enhance your production – and how NOT to use it!


And there’s more! Access to daily blogs by fellow students and experienced professionals enhances your training and keeps you from working in isolation.


A huge community, worldwide, 24/7, is there to help you along, and learn from you! One day someone will be asking YOU how much did you make in the first 6 months of blogging, and I bet you won’t have to answer “none!” like I did.

ClickBank Affiliate Marketing System



How Can I Earn $500 From Blogging?

How Can I Earn $500 From Blogging?

How Can I Earn $500 From Blogging? That’s a good question and do you mean per week, or per month? Or, eventually, perhaps per day?
How do you get to that goal? How do you get started? I am going to outline the basic steps that will launch you into a part-time or full-time business, depending on your availability.
If you have done some research and are ready to learn how to develop a money earning blog, click below to a page where you only need a user name and password – no payment! – to test drive the training.  
This page contains affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what the vendor advertises.





Is it worth starting a blog? Can I make money from it?


The answer to this question depends on your goals. This site is focused on senior citizens in or heading toward retirement, and ways to earn money to boost your SS income yet retain:

  • Freedom from the 9-5 schedule – create your own
  • Freedom to travel and earn money as you go anywhere
  • Freedom to enjoy the company of your partner and/or family as much as you like
  • Freedom to keep learning and growing while benefitting from past jobs and hobbies


Those are the most common reasons that come up in conversations, in my experience. Here, I want to save you from pretty shiny things that will distract you from making real progress in your blogging adventures. Purportedly time saving systems that will and I quote ” earn over $100k/month“. 


I made that quote red because that’s my red flag alert. Like you even needed it, but seriously how realistic is that? If that were possible I’d be earning it, and maybe you would be too. That quote refers to the 3 Step Blueprint Create N Cash that allows you to (from the product description):

  • “Use AI tools to create and sell your first product in 7 days.
  • Students Earning $10,000+ with their first product – See student results on this page.
  • No ads or traffic – Tap into an existing stream of buyers.
  • NO copywriting – Simple AI tool generates sales letters and videos for you.
  • 60-Day ‘first product launch guarantee’ – this works for you or you pay nothing.
  • Working now in 2023 – Recession-proof business model set to explode over the next 5 years.
  • NO Limits – YOU are in complete control of how much you earn”


One online learning site of note.


So, AI is still new, and much is being written about Open AI and Chat GPT versions.  From the pro bloggers I know, the biggest asset of AI is to save time in the research phase of content creation.


Because the success of your blog depends on your content, unique and high quality content.  More about Create N Cash:

“Use AI tools to create and sell your first product in 7 days” – just a note here, after buying the package at the $17.00 product launch price, you will buy those AI tools


How do I make money by blogging in 6 months?


While I am giving some information on Create N Cash (not to be confused with Clone N Cash or Type N Cash), why do I keep coming back to the topic of blogging? Because, even if you create good digital courses and submit them to Udemy or ClickBank and other similar platforms, are you going to rely on them to bring you customers?


Wouldn’t you rather have your own site to promote from, one you design, develop and control? That you can re-purpose as fads and trends change?


Honest coaches will tell you that 3-6 months is the usual time frame to see income coming in from affiliate purchases prompted by your blog content. Of course that depends on whether you have 40+ hours a week to work on your work at home business, or whether you’re working some evening and weekend hours.


It’s vital to get started properly with no time wasted. The training I recommend has video classes with a huge legacy of Q & A’s to review, as your own questions come to mind.


  1. It has a live feed going on 24/7, worldwide.
  2. It uses a careful step by step process whereby you build your blog and watch it appear online right from the start.
  3. It helps you choose a topic with a niche audience, those people who love your topic too, and will search for you online.
  4. It will help you choose a topic that you have enough enthusiasm for to write consistent content without burning out or getting bored.
  5. It will show you how to use the correct titles and words and phrases to help your readers find you instead of someone else when they’re searching online
  6. It will give you samples of the required legal pages/disclaimers and more (internationally), that you will customize for your blog
  7. Many members pitch in with additional training on how to use ads, how to write good sales copy, and how to track your progress with Google services


If you’re a teacher, consultant or coach, I’m not going to say don’t buy the $17.00 Create N Cash package. You can get that money back within 60 days if you think it’s rubbish. And, it may jump start your digital product career.


It’s simply my opinion that if you’ve never taught, coached or practiced a hobby to a point of expertise, that you’re not going to come up with good courses.


Oh right, the AI is supposed to do that. Which even proves my point, without experience, how are you going to know that the robot-created courses are any good?


It’s like research with AI – you still have to fact check any information you get. Remember, it’s not a search engine, it’s a human-like response program. 


So, how can you earn $500 blogging, in whatever time frame? Learn the right way, don’t waste time, and develop the skills you need to compete. 


Take a close look at the excellent, always available, membership community that offers discounts on domain names, and free hosting for several sites.

How People Are Able To Earn $1000 Per Day From ClickBank

How People Are Able To Earn $1000 Per Day From ClickBank


After reading a few of my other articles a pal asked me how people are able to earn $1000 a day from ClickBank. Is this really possible?


Yes, it is. However, what the time frame is to achieve that depends on various factors. 


  • Do you know how to get started? (I will tell you below)
  • How much time you have to put into this blogging for money adventure
  • The quality of training you can get so you don’t waste time doing/undoing/doing again
  • How well you compete for guaranteed targeted traffic (you’ll learn how to guarantee it)
  • How consistent your blog publishing is
  • How visually appealing your blog is – minimalist or decorative and all in between
  • How well you review ClickBank products and create the invitations to buy


And those are the tip of the iceberg! I learned about the rest of the iceberg by getting access to a professional training site for bloggers. And I didn’t pay one dime for the test drive. I got a free account. If you’re ready to do that, click below on the blue button. 

This page contains affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what the vendor advertises.




Why did I put that affiliate disclaimer above? To illustrate the nature of this blog. If you purchase anything from this post, I will get a commission. No, I’m not making $1000 a day from ClickBank – I make some money, but I also have many other promotional blog posts for many other products.


I started my blogging business with ClickBank because at the time, a package of information with a book and videos, was in the ClickBank marketplace. And it happened to be on a topic I was passionate about, and I was also an expert in. The ClickBank marketplace has thousands of products.


You can find one you are passionate about, or have high interest. And because your interest is already high, I bet you can write quality content about it over many blog posts. This will build out your site with volume, and will attract higher ranking (visibility) on the search engines.


I hope your mind is buzzing with ideas. A favorite hobby would be an ideal topic for you to write about.


My post about Joe Vitale’s Awakened Millionaire mind training is popular. Visualization and affirmation usage is very popular.  And, note here, if you click on that link and purchase the informational package, I will get a commission.


ClickBank’s commissions tend to be higher than retail product commissions, maybe as high as 50%. That’s why I recommend starting a blog business with these digital, easy-to-buy products.


You can’t really go wrong with this, providing you learn how to make a blog, and make it visible on line.


Getting guaranteed targeted visitors to your blog is a learned skill.


So if you make a commission of $25.00 from a digital product, and you prompt 40 purchases, that is $1,000.00.


The other advantage is that the creators of the digital products have already researched and written their sales pitches and you can draw from those for key phrases used.


That would be for your own unique content, not any copying. Unique content is one of the factors that the search engines use to rank your material. Your personal experience with a career or a hobby will feed your blog content.


If you’re a senior citizen whose retirement budget looks bleak, why not capitalize on your accumulated knowledge? Do you have any background in the following categories presented at the top of the page on the ClickBank Marketplace?


  1. Health & Fitness
  2. E-Business & E-Marketing
  3. Spirituality, New Age & Alternative Beliefs
  4. Self Help
  5. Home & Garden
  6. Cooking Food & Wine
  7. Green Products
  8. Business & Investing


Now, imagine one tiny aspect of any of those fields. For example, Woodworking. You’ve got:

  • Your favorite woods – write a blog post about each, and the ones you don’t prefer
  • Your favorite tools – why they’re your favorites, and where to buy them (you get the affiliate %)
  • Your favorite wood workers and their products
  • Any woodworking clubs?
  • Conventions?
  • Awards?


The readership for these narrowly focused products, techniques, results – is your niche.


Your niche, your audience, will get to know you and learn to trust you. Your writing will inspire them to leave comments on your posts, raising your visibility.


More about niche markets.


Raising your visibility is something that snowballs. Yes, it takes time. Yet, as each post ages and gains readers, the snow ball gets bigger. Maybe that’s not the best analogy, nor very poetic – but you can see it, right?


But what if you only make $50.00 a day from ClickBank or other commissions? That’s $1,500.00 a month. And it will snowball. Depending on the household you support, that could make a huge difference in your quality of life.


Double it – $3,000.00 isn’t insignificant, right? Would that much increased income from working online decrease any food insecurity? Investment insecurity?


If you made a list of your insecurities right now, what would it look like?


What amount of monthly income would calm those insecurities?


If you could create that revenue by talking about your enthusiasm for a certain product or informational package and publishing 1000 words twice a week, that’s pretty incredible isn’t it?


Yes, you need more details to do this the right way, and in a methodical way that economizes your time. That’s why I recommend the training I was lucky to discover.


To see your blog appear online and grow as you go, is very rewarding. You can get a good look at the instruction, just click below.




How To Make A Successful Cash Cow Channel

How To Make A Successful Cash Cow Channel


I’m focusing on helping retirees or soon-to-be retirees learn to make a living online. A friend asked me how to make a successful cash cow channel on YouTube.


What is a cash cow channel? It is one where your face and maybe your voice, too, isn’t present on the video. Experts recommend you hire the best producers, voice over actors, and editors to create your cash cow channel.


HIstory of YouTube


But wait! For seniors retiring without that high end pension, how would they do that? Hire the experts?


And, is creating a YouTube channel subject to fads, fashions and gone-viral moments going to help? I have my doubts, although there are always exceptions. The rare outgoing personalities may succeed at this.


I think the most legitimate way to earn money online is to set up a website and sell products (either your own products or as an affiliate).


I stumbled across affiliate marketing over ten years ago. I made money! Until I didn’t.


I promoted a wonderful informational product listed on ClickBank (a marketplace of digital products) which happened to be in a field I was an expert in. Writing the content to promote this e-book was easy for me.


But, markets change and my audience changed. That’s normal. So what came next? What came along is something you can do right now! I was referred to a site where I learned how to do more, and build successful affiliate business blogs. And I was able to create a no-cost-up-front account and start learning. Would you like to do that? Click below!

This page contains affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what the vendor advertises.




OK, getting back to the cash cow YouTube channel you might create – I was sent an email about NEXUS, an app that is described as:


  • A.I Bot Gets Us Hundreds Of Free Visitors…
  • Resulting In $20-$50 Payments Every Hour
  • No Video Creation…
  • 90% Of Beta-Testers Got Traffic & Sales…
  • ​Never-Before-Seen YouTube Loophole…
  • 100% Beginner Friendly…
  • ​Fueled By ChatGPT4 & OpenAI…
  • ​Works In Any Niche, In Any Country…
  • ​Get Results Or Get $250…
  • ​365-Day Guarantee Included…


That all sounds fantastic and yet I should include this caveat from a Quora writer:


“optimize your videos for SEO. This means using relevant keywords in your video titles, descriptions, and tags, as well as incorporating them into your video content itself. This will help your videos show up in search results when people are looking for content related to your niche.”


How do you learn about all that! I learned at the training site I recommended above. 


So it seems you could use an app like NEXUS where an AI bot makes videos for you.


Yet, on viewing the promotional video about it, it seems there is a lot of tweaking and editing to make the text fields, colors, et al the way you want them. The “No video creation” pr is actually not correct.  You will be doing a lot of hands on work.


100% Beginner Friendly – but what does that mean? Marketing beginner? Video-creating beginner? Beginner what? Are you a beginner blogger or wanna-be blogger?


Not a lot is friendly online if you’re looking for a way to start making money with your laptop, or while traveling, or want to somehow avoid a daily commute.  


How do I grow a cash cow YouTube channel?


You would  do this the same way you grow your blog followers. Promote consistently to your hundreds or thousands of followers on social media. You’ve got those, right?


Or are you just starting to look for ways to develop the skills you need to work at home?  If so, click the blue button and get started with viewing some classes and get an idea of the potential in the instructions that will build you a blog (no coding needed) that will be further developed – by you – for business online.


You may still at some point use an app like NEXUS to build YouTube videos. But you will need to understand SEO keywords, and how to incorporate them in your videos, just like you will in your blog posts.


Because even if you do develop a multiple thousands of video followers, you can double your online income by sending your YouTube followers to your site.


Why do that? Because you can promote high ticket retail items for an affiliate commission. You would then have two streams of income activated!


You can view NEXUS here.


My personal bias weighs in on the side of you making a blog alongside of your video channel.  It will always be a support for your video cash cow channel, which will be way more vulnerable to the whims of the online audience, and to the biases of advertisers.   


Do you want to know:

  • How WordPress works 
  • How to get readers to your blog
  • How to write conversational posts
  • How to upload images and videos
  • How to embed links that will make you commissions

A Flex App Review


Described as ” L∞phole For FREE Buyer Traffic In 60 Seconds!”


Buyer traffic is the same as guaranteed targeted web traffic. 


As I’ve mentioned in other articles, the guarantee is YOU.  Despite all the “set and forget” software packages, and apps, the successful sites that do get guaranteed targeted visitors are nurtured by their creators.


Bloggers who have learned  how to generate and perpetuate income  – thus this article today which I write especially for senior citizens who are trying to work from home in retirement, rather than working the 9 to 5 grind. 


So back to Flex App. More description from the author:

  • A.I. Creates Tiktoks™ For You…
  • ​Just Say A Simple Voice Command…
  • ​It’s Truly Magical…
  • ​100% Beginner Friendly…
  • ​No Video Editing & No Cameras…
  • ​Works On Any Device…
  • ​Get 100% FREE Traffic…
  • ​Works Out-Of-The-Box…
  • ​No Setup Needed, Click & Go…
  • ​Get Results Or Get A 200% Refund…
  • ​365-Day Guarantee Included…


The first professional reviewer I consulted with says right off the bat “don’t think you’re going to make the fabulous amounts per day they put on the sales page”. That’s par for the course for these app promotions. Naturally experienced marketers can apply these rapidly and make some money.


However, “100% Beginner Friendly” is a red flag almost every time I see it. 


Beginner bloggers need to learn many details about how to become a successful marketer online. For example:


  • Visual presentation of your site
  • How to get guaranteed targeted web traffic
  • Required legal pages
  • How to design an easy to read blog post
  • How to embed links your buyers will use for purchases


That is scratching the surface. And, why I recommend a training I have used, where the classes are methodical.


Where you can create a blog as you go through every class and see it coming to life.


Where you include the necessary components to a site built for business, yet is friendly and inviting.


Flex – “Get 100% free traffic” – You can get free traffic to your blogs…I didn’t pay anyone for ads to have you come here. I did pay to learn how to do that without buying ads.


I do know that the Flex app hasn’t been around long enough for anyone to determine what kind of traffic your videos produced with it, will get. 


Can AI Bots Really Make You Money Online?


The Flex app is an AI package.


AI bots can certainly aid your production schedule.


The biggest help I can discern at this time is with research. Saving time gathering information and references is a big boon to your writing original quality content for your readers.  


Can You Use ChatGPT To Build Passive Income?


(ChatGPT is an AI package that can create written content and images.


Yes indeed! If you’re creating informational products to sell on ClickBank (more about that here) or online courses to sell on a site like Udemy, you will save time researching your material with Chat GPT.


It’s possible that Flex will help you with your promotions.


Again, it is too new to tell what the Flex app’s results will be, and what it’s longevity will be.


The training I recommend has been the leader in its field for over a decade.  


Get Results or Get a 200% Refund”  Have you ever received a 200% refund for anything? Just sayin’… :mrgreen: 


While the promotions are preposterous, I’m not saying Flex is a scam. And it’s inexpensive.


(Price goes up every hour! Kind of like the Today Only! deals, right?) To me, personally, it looks like fun. It offers editing for creating your visuals, and if you don’t use that your videos are going to look like a lot of other Flex users’ videos.


So bear in mind, the search engines will show original content first on their lists of results.


And, every search engine knows what content is generated with or without AI. Because this is what they do. 


I know how tempting shortcuts are, and you may be very hard pressed to get up a marketing blog that will make you money and perhaps save you from going back to 9 to 5 grind. I get it!


To be successful as an affiliate marketer, your best bet is to learn how to produce a long-life blog with an affiliate product or category of products. It won’t make you income in one day, week, or month. It will make you income while you’re sleeping, traveling, recovering from an illness, or simply putting your feet up to enjoy the sunset.


Doesn’t that sound wonderful?  Flex is one example of the bombardment of apps and software packages that are being promoted providing some AI usage.


You can spend time learning how to use some of those. They are all focused on one kind of product.


Wouldn’t you prefer to spend that time on creating a blog that will earn you income in perpetuity? 


You can see for yourself how this training I have benefited so much from over the years, can work for you. Take a good look! (Click below).

If you’re still looking for a way to start a blog, and design it properly for making money online, you may want to look at a place where you can view basic blog writing classes and decide how you want to move forward. You can do this with a no cost account, just click below.





Best Blog Page Designs


Where will you find guidance for the best blog design ideas? Do you have to come up with one on your own? If you don’t know web design, how do you start?


A blog platform called WordPress is available for all, and it offers a variety of themes, or visuals, for a blog. It is easy to try them on”for size”  and switch them out until you have one you prefer.


It would depend on your niche, or target audience, the readers who want to learn about and ultimately buy the products you love to review and promote (or not!).


You can choose a very decorative theme (scrolls, flowers, cherubs etc.) or a minimalist look. Some themes are designed for photography and art presentations. Some are designed for journalistic material, or essays, and aren’t necessarily minimalistic, but have a more “reading the newspaper” look. 



The Best Website Builder For Bloggers


WordPress is a well known platform (virtual foundation) for building blogs. Any kind of blog.


For business bloggers, it is a supportive product that will help you get the guaranteed targeted traffic (from your niche) and when I say guaranteed, that only applies if you learn how to use the theme you choose, learn how to make menus for easy navigation, and have a visually pleasing look.


After creating your necessary pages ( you would learn those in the training I recommend) you will do a google website load speed test – or whichever search engine you choose – to make sure your readers aren’t leaving your site or going to make a coffee while your posts and pages appear. The WordPress themes are conducive to quick loading, as long as you know how to upload images correctly.


There’s no point in getting guaranteed targeted visitors who bail quickly because your pages can’t load fast, is there?


Use A Long Tail Keyword Finder


Firstly, what is that? 


Actually, before I describe a number one item, let’s back up to number zero: what is a long tail keyword? It is a longer phrase composed of several words, that are commonly used by readers to find what they’re looking for online.


For example if you search “garden fence” you will get 419 million results. But if you search “white picket garden fence with trellis” you find only 718 thousand results.


That is a targeted result. With about 1/400th the competition for viewers. While long tail keywords or key-phrases have fewer searchers, they are your searchers.


I hope this doesn’t sound over-simplified or like I’m talking down to you, I can only say when I first started to learn how to blog, I felt like I was in kindergarten. 


A Free Keyword Competition Analysis Tool


For many of us, starting free is essential. Within the training community I have linked to on this page, the paid monthly membership offers use of keyword competition analysis tool.


Before you get to that point, what will you do? The training also teaches you how to take advantage of the search engines, primarily Google.


When you search on Google, you see the count of the results; how many million, thousand, hundred results. All those results are your competition.


These search engines also have a category “People also ask” which gives you more popular search phrases. You can also learn The Alphabet Soup method which is typing in a phrase ‘white picket fence’ space, and the letter a. You will get a list of phrases like:

  • Amazon
  • At Lowe’s
  • And self-watering system
  • Attached to house


You can go through the entire alphabet, getting ideas which are mostly the less competitive long tail keywords. Bear in mind, this is just the first step of research into how well you can compete with keywords.


I would have floundered around longer than I did, trying to figure all this out, without the guidance of the video and text classrooms I found with my free account. Ones I can still go back to today, for any review I need.

What Are The Best Books On Visualisation And Affirmation?

What Are The Best Books On Visualisation And Affirmation?


What are the best books on visualisation and affirmation? I have been asked this many times so I started looking around for the top materials on these two related activities.


There are many angles to the visualization/manifestation activities. They include:

  • Books about the Tarot
  • Books about Twin Flame Attraction/Soulmate Attraction
  • The God Frequency
  • Numerology
  • Self Hypnosis


The purpose of gathering this material is to give you, an aspiring blogger, some ideas as to what you could promote for affiliate commissions, if this an area of interest for you.


This page contains affiliate marketing links. We may get paid a commission on the sale of a product or service recommended here. This does not change your price, you pay what the vendor advertises.


Have you started your blog training yet? Here is where I started, with a no-cost look at the training site. I just had to create an account to view the classes you need to get started. Would you like to have a look?






If you like, here is a little history on creative visualization. And, btw some of the materials I found use the British “sation” as opposed to the US “zation” spelling. 


First I am going over to ClickBank to see what’s in the marketplace of mostly digital products.


I select from the many categories “Spirituality, New Age & Alternative Beliefs”.  In the first five products listed, the first and fifth ones are specifically about manifestation.


I went to ClickBank because they provide thousands of digital products for which you can get affiliate links to insert in your blog content, and make sales commissions.


ClickBank has particularly high commissions compared to many retailers. Many experienced marketers agree it is the way to go for new bloggers.


In the description of the first product is a quote: 




I think it’s been shown on machines that thoughts can change the frequency of your brain waves, and that prayers, or affirmations if you prefer, can be powerful in this way.


And the promotional page follows, where your readers may be inspired to click through and buy the digital materials. 


The description of this fifth product is: 

“Brand new, high-converting Manifestation and Law of Attraction offer that is based on teachings from the Ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools. Story-based sales letter appeals exceptionally well to Personal Development traffic and lists.”

ClickBank provides the sales page your readers will go to when they click on your link. (You simply set up a ClickBank account to view the Marketplace content.)

The Bio Energy Code is “Guided Meditation Tracks that help people clear negative blockages so that they can manifest whatever they want into their life. Suitable for people who are interested in Law of Attraction, Personal Development, Spiritual, Meditation, Healing, Chakra, BioEnergy. Earn 75% on frontend offer & also 75% across all 3 upsells, receive up to $133.50 per sale.”

There are many products with the popular buzzwords in the titles and promotional content, already prepared for the affiliate marketer.


How can I use positive affirmations effectively?


Traditional materials about affirmations come from the New Thought era of the late 19th Century, and you’ve probably heard of them:



Instead of just listing the book, I put in an image that Amazon provides for me, one of their affiliates. This is to illustrate to you what it looks like on an affiliate marketing blog. Amazon’s commissions are much smaller than ClickBank’s. Amazon will pay you 1% to 6% on most products, a few categories are closer to 10%. Napoleon Hill emphasizes consistency in using affirmations or visualizations.



Likewise, this author emphasizes consistency in using affirmations or visualizations. You can find many more of these types of books on Amazon, Goodreads and other bookstore sites. 


Does positive self talk/affirmations truly work?



The above is one of the leading books on, well, the biology of belief. It is about the physicality of belief, rather than a metaphysically oriented outlook. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit.



The Field is about the quantum “spaces” or non-spaces one could say. It’s stories of far-reaching prayer results, documented,  are fascinating.  It is one of many illustrating that yes, self-talk/affirmations do work!


Are you interested in this category of books/self-help how-to’s, and interested in promoting them to others (for a commission!)?


If so, you need a blog! A blog that is designed to:

  • Attract readers with the correctly worded titles and headlines
  • Provide natural writing style in your content, conversational
  • Present good formatting for easy reading
  • Legally correct for the US and international
  • Reflect your personality and mastery of your topic


And that’s just for starters!


I mentioned above that you can get free access to some real classes on the setting up of a business blog for affiliate marketing.


You will get a good idea of what is involved in proceeding with the development of a successful web site that will endure for years, providing you income.


With the information there, you can decide if you will move forward with paid training — dozens of video classes, many walk-you-through- training articles by some of the members, and access to a live feed of Q’s and A’s.


You will be part of a helpful community that loves to shares their tips for making money with your blog(s), choosing the best paying affiliate products, and much much more!


Do you want to work in retirement – but you want to do it your way?


Most senior citizens in the lower income brackets are resigned to “working forever”, but it doesn’t have to be grim. Many bloggers:

  • Choose their own “office hours” at the kitchen table or on the patio
  • Keep a schedule that’s best for their health and family time
  • Get to write about things they really love or
  • Technical materials they know about from a career or serious hobby

I think I may have your attention on those items above, so if you’re ready, just click below and get started!

How Much Is AI Hype And How Much Is Real In Near-Term Predictions?

How Much Is AI Hype And How Much Is Real In Near-Term Predictions

How Much Is AI Hype And How Much Is Real In Near-Term Predictions


I’m presenting this idea today in relation to this blog and its readers and within the perspective of making money with your blog – or future blog – and one particular AI product (software package) and its assertion that you can make more money with its use. Thus my title How Much Is AI Hype And How Much Is Real In Near-Term Predictions.


Here is an overview of AI if you would like that.


I am going to share with you a brief discussion of AI Whisperer, a hypy-sounding app purportedly designed to make you a lot of money per day. I am a skeptic, and yet I hope I’m wrong when I think something just isn’t going to work that way.


I also try to give my readers (mostly senior citizens and others wanting to make money from home) a heads up about things that may waste all their time in their efforts to achieve a more comfortable retirement lifestyle.


The AI Whisperer product (not to be confused with AI Whisper) is worth looking at in theory, yet at close scrutiny I’m not sure what the value is. It claims:


“FINALLY! AI that actually makes money
 REAL LIFE $100-400/day case studies
 CHAT-GPT SOFTWARE! + hacks pre-loaded!
 PROFIT WITH the AI Goldrush of 2023
 WHISPER to Chat GPT, MidJourney & more
 50x AI HACKS you can just “cut-and-paste
 UNLEASH THE T-1000 on ClickBank, Google, Shopify, W+, GetResponse & 23x mega-sites!”
OK, but what does all that mean? 


What is AI Goldrush of 2023 


What is THE T-1000 and all that other stuff mentioned above?


Is artificial intelligence overhyped technology?


So far this looks like hype to me, but I will look further.


The reason why I’m so careful with these kinds of promotions, is that blogging for money is a real job (self-employed, the best, right?) and many bloggers do make a full time income. It’s not difficult, with good training, and it takes consistent work and patience, but it CAN lead to financial independence. I was lucky a few years back because I got a chance to learn how to blog the proper way.


I found a place where I could view the training for free and decide if I wanted to move forward and become a pro. I signed up for the free account, decided I couldn’t afford not to proceed with paid training, and I’ve never looked back. Would you like to do take a look at that opportunity? (CLICK below)






The AI Whisperer product promo says:


“AI is here, it’s dangerous, and people like me…



Wow that’s dramatic! This is kinda hard to get into for me.


Is artificial intelligence overhyped technology?


A cognitive science and computing systems researcher, Robert Stone, says “Oh hell yes. There are so many people with a stake in presenting it as more that it currently is. So many ambitious overachievers out there spinning BS to get money.”


I know AI is new, for some, and exciting (for some) and of course it’s real, and it’s not truly that new. Yet, new applications are popping up every day. 


So if you have a blog, how is this going to help? If you intend to have a blog, and during and after you create that blog, how is AI Whisperer going to help?


If you’re a retiree looking to make some income by working at home online, how will this software package going to help you?


Will it relieve you of hours of research for content ideas on your blog?


Maybe, if you’re that short of ideas. Most bloggers aren’t. In three seconds, any day, you can find related ideas for blog articles on a search engine.


It’s an easy technique that is taught in the training (“free account”) I alluded to above.


And, no matter if you get lists of blog ideas with an AI tool, you still have to:

  • Research the competition
  • Research the keywords you want to use as a title
  • Find appropriate headline titles for your sections in the article
  • Write appealing content for your target audience


One pro blogger weighs in…”Some want to take the easy way out because they do not want to do the research. They rather let an AI write up junk articles that goes nowhere! It takes a lot of work. Anyway, readers ain’t dumb. They know!”


From other comments by professional promotional (affiliate) writers online, AI can help with an initial exploration into topics related to your niche.


But after that, it’s business as usual, in completing and publishing a typical informative blog post where one’s readers may follow a link, make a purchase, resulting in a commission for you.


Yet, AI Whisperer claims to “automate 94%” of your work.


With one click, the training community I discovered a few years ago, can give you access to a list of topics, perhaps hundreds of phrases, for writing prompts.


As I’ve mentioned, you then must proceed to evaluate the competition showing on the search engines before you proceed to spend a couple of hours or more, writing a quality and engaging blog post.


You can get your money back if you purchase AI Whisperer, if you want to take a look at it and try it out. How do you proceed to make money? You can retrieve search phrases for any topic, all writing prompts.


You can get content for an article, which will need editing. After all, others will be searching as well and you want your articles to have your voice and your style, that your readers are used to.


One video I heard introducing GPT 4, before it was released, emphasized “you can not expect factual results”. Wait – what?


This reminds me of when I bought a bunch of PR articles – pre-written for my editing and customization – some on health, coconut oil benefits, and related topics.


I spent so much time editing them because this article seller has many customers. I didn’t want my articles to resemble hundreds of others. I ultimately stopped using them, as writing my own from scratch took the same or less time.


This trend (real or imagined) of throwing up articles, landing pages et al with a template retrieved in seconds, and publishing instantly to make hundreds of affiliate commission dollars a day – is that the BS our expert quoted above referred to?


The app hasn’t been around long enough to determine that.


But the training I have had and still enjoy for the constant updates and new developments of working online, has been around for over ten years and has proven its worth time and time again.


I could write a lot more about this (and I have) but if I’m going to save you time, I urge you to click below, and take a look at the training for yourself.


It is the very back-bone of business oriented blog writing. It can take you in whatever direction you want to go.


I’ve given you a very brief peek into the hype aspect of AI. A proficient marketer may find ways to take advantage of it, but I personally can’t see how a beginner blogger can.


There’s a lot to learn, but if you’re leaning toward this adventure…Just click below!

Is ShareASale Worth Using For Affiliates?

is shareasale worth using for affiliates man asks man

Is ShareASale Worth Using For Affiliates?


What is ShareASale? Is ShareASale worth using for affiliates? Meaning, those bloggers, and maybe You, who promote products made by other people for a commission.


Here is a little info and history about ShareASale. 


And below is a short video about ShareASale:



This marketer explains that she makes money with ShareASale in two ways:

  • Commissions from product sales
  • Promoting the network to others who sign up, and a portion of their % goes to the person who referred  them


Amazon is the most visible, but not the most popular affiliate site. This is because payouts and terms are too low / poor for most marketers who have weighed in on this, and many niche products have better deals and promotions being sold directly from merchant websites instead of Amazon.


Amazon kind of took itself out of the competition when it slashed commissions and really upset its affiliates. Imagine working on a successful blog for a couple of years, to have its value marked down 90%!


And there is one key point, about joining ShareASale or a similar network of retailers. Your blog. What if you don’t have one?


Can you somehow get one?


You can buy websites that some other marketer has started, and has designed them for business. Those will sell for thousands of dollars if done well. And the purchaser needs to know what to do with it! How to keep adding content and building it out.


With a small budget, you can start your own site. I started mine with a free account and got to take a close look at the training its site offered. Would you like to do that now? Click below and see what you think.





How Can I Be Approved On ShareASale Easily?


“The most reason of get declined from ShareASale is to not have a running website.” –


I read the recommendations about ShareASale by successful bloggers to see if any one of them would not recommend this network. None did not.


And every single one states that you must have a web site or video channel in order to qualify.  


The network wants to see that you have a marketing venue in place (thus the button to click on above) that has some longevity online and can draw readers to its retailers’ products.


And I would say that is fairly easy to achieve IF you have the information to follow and create your web site properly.


It’s not difficult, but there is no guessing, you need to know how to build a business blog. 


Once you have applied and been accepted by ShareASale, you can view the many products and decide on one or more that you would like to promote. Also one that fits your blog focus.


At that point you will apply to the specific retailer(s) of the products you can promote easily. So you are going to do best choosing products, or a product type, that you have interest in and can write about


A lot.


Building a blog means adding content in order to gain readership. Do you have a favorite product – household, or a hobby product – that you can’t help talking about to anyone who will listen because you love it so much?


That is an ideal choice for an affiliate product, because you won’t burn out writing about it. Your enthusiasm will be contagious, and will add energy to your informed information.


The quality of the information you provide will help a reader decide to buy that product. 

Top Affiliate Marketing Products


ShareASale helps its members by providing a data base of its retailers, and the top selling products. This is the market, and it is fluid and changing. Up to date information is vital.


How Can I Benefit From ShareASale 


Most ShareASale reviewers share my view. Be Prepared.


By that we mean, build a marketing venue – a blog or vlog (eg a YouTube channel).


Plan on a few months of work before you see revenue appearing. And then keep going! You are building a real business. It may take 3-5 years before you make a full-time income, one you can live on.


If you’ve retired are or approaching retirement, and will need more income than you expect to have, why not start learning how to blog now? Learn the ins and outs of affiliate marketing now.


You can’t know what you’re getting into without some exposure to professional online marketing training.


You haven’t bumped into the scams and get-rich-quick offers.


You haven’t seen the hundreds of “no skills needed” systems that you can view the basics of for under $20.00 and then purchase more access for hundreds of dollars.


You haven’t seen the done-for-you packages where it turns out you need a lot of training to put the package to use.


I would like to save you some time and agony by providing you with a no-cost look into a training web site where you learn how to build a marketing venue, that is yours to develop, that you will own.


Not something that is part of a system that you’re dependent on for support or updates that may never appear.


You want a business that you have control over and will grow for years to come. It will depend on you, and that’s the advantage, right?
