Do YouTube Videos Make Money

Often readers have asked me do youTube videos make money? I’m not a video maker myself but I think I’m missing out on something.

So here’s another question for today: have you made slime yet? Stay with me because I’m going to illustrate something important about how youTube videos do make money.

A lot of money, for some.

Need A Quick Slime Recipe?

If you senior readers here have grandkids, I bet you’re way more clued into the Slime Phenomena than I am.

In fact, I only just heard about this morning on Bill Handel’s radio show. I’m driving along as usual watching the crazy traffic on the way to work and the word “slime” keeps tapping at my awareness.

a quick slime recipe

 Then I hear the phrase “six figure income” and I start paying attention! It turns out that Karina Garcia, a twenty three year old woman in Southern California has retired her parents and siblings and bought a huge family home for her family.

And right now there’s a run on Elmer’s Glue, one of the slime ingredients. The Elmer’s Glue website and the Michael’s craft store website now show recipes for slime.

Does Karina make slime? No. Does she sell other people’s slime?


Ms. Garcia started a youTube account and began uploading videos about different slime recipes, the ingredients in slime recipes, and much more.

She is now making between $100,000.00 and $200,000.00 a month! From YouTube.

Here is one of her videos about a quick slime recipe:

And as of today, this video has had 3,379,594 views! And Ms. Garcia has a couple of hundred videos!

Why did she do this? Because Slime has been around for years. It first showed up on Nikelodeon.

And how does she make the money?

Huge corporations, one being Coca Cola for example, pay youTube for advertising on her videos because they draw a lot of views.

And Ms. Garcia gets a cut.

Best Home Online Jobs

This story shows us how making youTube videos is obviously one of the best home online jobs.

tiny home office

The idea is to make videos about an ongoing “hit” product. You don’t have to own, sell it, MLM it, make a rip-off version of it or even write about it.

Bets are though, you will at some point want to make a website to help increase a retirement income.

So here’s a plan – learn how seniors can make money online with a website, marketing a product. Someone else’s product…This is called affiliate marketing.

You can test drive some classes and experience a training community for free, to see if this would inspire you to build a business blog.





The Slime opportunity has been taken up by many other video makers, but you may have a high interest in something very different anyway.

You can go here to learn about promoting Clickbank products  . Those are digital instant download informational packages on thousands of topics. You are probably quite knowledgeable in a few of them!

For example a popular one is about woodworking. And then think about the potential for related videos. It could start at building a workbench exclusively for wood working. I’m no expert but per my imagination you’ll need:

  • A good place in the home or
  • A good place in the garage
  • Maybe a garden shed workshop
  • Good lighting
  • Perhaps an electrical source
  • Good ventilation because you may use wood glues or paints/varnishes

O.K., there are six videos right there. You would want to watch a

promote Clickbank products wood working

lot of wood working videos to see how you can present a unique angle to your viewers.

Increase A Retirement Income

Look at popular wood works and dissect them for your viewers. If you know a lot about wood working you’ll come up with many more ideas than I ever could.

These videos can be short. They can link to your website, and your website can link to them.

On your website you could also promote wood working products or designs from:

  • Amazon
  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Home Depot
  • Lowe’s

and more! You can become an affiliate marketer for those stores and earn commissions when a shopper goes to the vendors through links on your site.

That’s a lot to take in right?

And how do you get started? At Wealthy Affiliate you get a free trial – no payment method asked for, nothing – seven days where you can view hours of lessons AND you can put together a real practice website which you can later convert to your own dot com.

Please if you find a better deal than that, let me know!

Health Benefits Of Working At Home

health benefits of working at home

What Are The Health Benefits of Working At Home?

I imagine there are a million answers about the health benefits of working at home, considering that millions of people might want to make money from their home and quit their job right now.

Ready to get started making money with a blog now? Learn about it HERE.

I’m not talking about remote work as an employee – I’m referring to you being your own boss. Imagine these health benefits:

  • Fall asleep when you are naturally sleepy and get enough sleep
  • Wake up with no stress
  • Prepare a breakfast from fresh food and eat it in a relaxed manner
  • Take a walk/exercise/do yoga/run/swim
  • Make another “cuppa” and call your mom/child/friend for a quick chat

See where I’m going with this? Doesn’t that sound amazingly relaxed? Good for your health?health benefits work at home

The work at home choice can be really good for you. Of course there is still some pressure to w.o.r.k.!

It’s different pressure when it is self imposed, right? You don’t have a job, or maybe you are at the preparing to retire stage. Planning to figure out a self-employed gig you can actually pull off?

Kiss the commute goodbye? Seriously is this ever going to be possible?

This whole wonderful and somewhat scary idea isn’t a fairy tale, if you get your ducks lined up properly. And I am going to tell you where you can learn how to do that!

10 Advantages Of Working At Home

I still have a job, but I can picture the day when I won’t. I am making progress toward matching my job salary with my commissions earned from blog writing.

  1. As a senior I have varying sleep patterns. This is normal, yet there’s that nine to five thing that really puts a damper on feeling good. I’d love to be paid for opening the office at five in the morning when I’m feeling wide awake and heading out for the house at two in the afternoon.

So, yes I’d love to set my own hours! You too?

2. I learned from a pretty scary mid-life health crisis that it is better to buy fresh foods and avoid the packaged, chemical-laden frozen boxed foods, or discount store pesticide laden produce. The drug and antibiotic fed meat sources aren’t so good either.

I need more time to shop in a healthy manner and prepare fresh meals. And eat when I’m hungry, and not eat if I’m not. Cooked, raw, smoothie, whatever.  Aren’t personal choices healthier in general?better health with fresh fruit

I spend half a day on a weekend preparing food to take to work the following week. I’d love to see friends and family more rather than doing that.

3. The car. Thirteen years old and going well, but I’m not going to be silly and buy a new one. So I’d love to drive it less. I’d save on gas too. Giving up that mileage to work and back would lower my insurance costs too. Big advantage!

4. Scheduling doctor and dentist appointments when I need them and not put them off until a day when I lose the least work time.

5.Referring to the internet training system I use, Wealthy Affiliate,  whenever I need to. Sometimes in the middle of my work day – Pop! – a light bulb goes on about improving a certain aspect of my websites. I want to stop everything and log on to consult one of the experts in the community.

I’d love to be able to seize those visionary moments! Carpe momentum!

6. Working when I darn well feel like it.  It’s not like I don’t think a scheduled time or a measure of discipline doesn’t matter. It does. Yet, if I get an idea for blog content late at night, and I have the energy to start a draft, I want to! Without worrying about maybe sleeping a little later.

It is beneficial to get a routine into place, yet also good when you can take a break if you need to.

I’d love to have that advantage for the odd times when such an inspiration just shows up.

7. Exercisekey in the health benefits of working at home. Whether you go to a gym or work out at home, it is your choice, how and when.

8. Clothing – professional dress code attire costs. I’m done! I would love to have more money for the occasional day trip or other occasions. Or, just save it!

9. Work station. Sometimes my table, sometimes my couch. The patio! I decided to learn how to find keywords one day with the cool breeze wafting by and the birds singing above. Keywords bring readers to your blog and just click on that blue link to find out about those!

I mostly work on my laptop but sometimes I like to watch the Video Classrooms at Wealthy Affiliate on my television – love the big screen for the details about online training for the web. Click on that link, if you’re warming up to this exciting idea of the senior jobs in retirement that are actual work at home activities.

10.  Mobility. Taking my laptop to a cafe, the library or the park. It is just great to go to an environment where I talk to people and get ideas for and work online

This includes out of town trips, and dog sitting or house sitting at another location. Your writing and publishing routines are never interrupted!

Freedom! What an advantage!

Learn To Find Keywords

learn to find keywords

How Does A New Blogger Learn To Find Keywords?

This site is focused on helping seniors, the disabled, and anyone who needs or wants to work from home and make money by marketing products or information on the internet. If you have already started on this venture, and want to know how to profit from a blog, you must learn how to find keywords.

Keywords are the words that people enter into a Google, Bing, or Yahoo (and there are other search engines that are used) search field. These words connect a seeker with websites that give information containing those words or similar words and phrases.

When you search for an item like “how to find the best keywords for your site”,  you are transferred to a “SERP”

learn keywords for internet marketing
Help people shop online!

or “search engine results page” with a list of informational websites. You can then click and read the best content, which shows on the first page.

This is well ranked content, because it has used well chosen keywords which have connected you to the site. This is how internet marketing works!

How To Find Keywords For Blogging

If you click here to my Getting Started post (this tab will stay open so you can click right back!) and zip to the bottom, you’ll see a graphic showing the Wealthy Affiliate System Starter Account benefits and to the right, Premium (paid) Account benefits.

In the free – absolutely zero cost – trial account for the best training for a work at home job, you will see on the left, the Keyword Research Tool, and in the next column, that you get Thirty Free Searches with this time-saving software to help you get good keywords as you build your blog.

(Also note on that page, there is much more instruction on how to earn from a blog)

The two most important factors with keywords are:

  • How many monthly searches show for a word or phrase
  • The competition (number of sites showing results for that keyword or phrase) you would be up against

The highest search number with the lowest competition number could be a very good word or phrase to choose.

How To Use Keywords For Your Website

If you don’t have any idea of how to design your own website for free, take a moment to go here to and read about a step by step website builder. You will see how easy it is to start creating blogs with two opportunities to practice, and hours of classroom instruction to help you understand all the components to use keywords for your webite

Once you have found a list of keywords related to a niche or topic you are interested in marketing, you want to make the most of them!

In the free starter trial with Wealthy Affiliate you will find out how, and how much to use your keyword/phrase in your content, meaning, each and every blog post you write.

Using a keyword or phrase in every paragraph you write, for example, is considered Spam by the search engines. Your pages and posts will not rank well. In other words, they will stay hidden in the back pages.

Using your chosen words in a natural conversational way at approximately every three hundred words throughout your information is acceptable.

Keywords and phrases are but one factor in your blog writing. Most important is your actual content. If it is informative and well organized (another free lesson at Wealthy Affiliate University) it will gain favor with readers and search engines alike.

Beginner Internet Marketing Training

I am assuming that you are a senior, a disabled person (or both) or someone who is looking at retiring in the next few years, with not enough money. Yet, anyone can decide to start blogging with the hope of increasing their income, at any time.

The desire and need to work online at home can lead to much time and money waste as you step on the land mines of work at home scams.

I have mentioned Wealthy Affiliate a few times in this post because it is a top of the line teaching system that updates constantly so that you can do your best. My full review of it is here.

To avoid scams, ignore keywords like these – that I found while searching “how to make money at home online”:

  • How to make quick money

    no free overnight money

  • Totally free home based jobs (what’s totally free?)
  • Loans disabled vets (can only be a trap)
  • Make money online free and fast

There are many more of that ilk. Keyword searches are fascinating!

Nothing is overnight. You may take advantage of the free websites I’ve talked about and work at them according to your own pace. Free, meaning, no addition to your usual expenses of internet service and owning a computer.

There are a few more ways to learn to find keywords. Click here to view a real lesson where Kyle, one of the Wealthy Affiliate owners and trainers says ” In this training I am going to show you how you can use a free Google Search within any niche to find an unlimited number of highly sought after keywords. ”

You will be surprised at how easy this technique of how to find keywords for blogging is!

I hope you enjoy that! I’d love to know what you think of this information, so please feel free to leave a comment or question below.


ClickBank Affiliate Marketing System

Clickbank logo

What is The ClickBank Affiliate Marketing System

The ClickBank Affiliate Marketing System connects the creators of digital products (e-books) that cover a huge range of products, with buyers looking for the information. What is the ClickBank marketing system? I discuss it below.


ClickBank has twenty three categories of “niches” or topics to promote. The authors of these items have already produced Pitch Pages, or sales pages, where a blogger sends readers, to buy the product.


This blogger is an affiliate marketer. For example, in the gardening niche, here’s a blog  Off Grid Lifestyle. Click on that blue link  and take a quick look.


The top post shows an amazon link (another affiliate program), but most of the links on the blog go to a ClickBank sales page.


Click on the yummy picture of vegetables to the right. It will open to the sales page. If you were to buy the digital ebook, the blogger would get a commission on the $39.97 USD sale.


ClickBank commissions are often about 50%.


For my first few years in internet marketing I sold only ClickBank products. And that was well worth my time! How did I learn to do that? I was introduced to an affiliate marketing training site to which I still belong. I was able to test drive it with a free account. Maybe you will too? 



Best Affiliate Program Commission


ClickBank truly offers a great opportunity for seniors, the disabled, and any individuals who want to start affiliate marketing with a website.



clickbank affiliate marketing system
ClickBank will help you

The worried face in the picture is a person who wants to learn to work on the internet. There are three links to click on in that place on the site. They are:

“The basics about being a ClickBank affiliate”


“This guide”  which is going to walk you through signing up


“This article” which explains how earnings are calculated as you refer buyers


Signing up is typical in that ClickBank needs your personal information in order to pay you!


You don’t even have to tell them all of it right away, but once you’ve made some money and want to receive your commissions, you will then complete your tax information.

Baby Boomer Discrimination


We have all heard of ageism in the workplace. To my astonishment, in 2015 Joanna Lahey  at PBS reported that age discrimination starts as low as thirty-five years of age.


What hope does a senior or disabled person have if they’re searching the top jobs for retirees?


However, if an individual decides to take the plunge and learn something like the ClickBank affiliate marketing system, he or she can avoid the baby boomer discrimination, or any kind of exclusion in the opportunity.


How to do business online from home is a big topic, yet training is available. I have written an article that covers the following topics:

  • ClickBank Affiliate Marketing – Newbies
  • Must Have Affiliate Marketing Tools!
  • Online Business For Seniors”


and this page is here to bring those ideas together.

Internet Business Ideas – Women


And from the PBS article mentioned above – “Editor’s Note: Older women workers now make up half of the long-term unemployed.”

older women laid off
Sixty percent less likely to be called for a job interview.


I highly recommend ClickBank as a venue for one of seniors biggest problems – first in line for lay-offs. Anyone who has had a job knows how discreetly discrimination can be applied in the workplace jungle.


A quick look down the categories of topics here reveals the variety that might be of particular interest to women, or to men, and their gender’s knowledge and experience.


As well,  there  are many common to all. That is not to say that any topic, or niche is gender specific but let’s face it, the genders (all of them) have more hands on history with different areas of life.


To add something important, affiliate marketing is an Equal Pay income potential. No seventy-three cent dollar or equivalent that women in most places receive in commissions!

Beginner Internet Marketing Training


There are no totally free home based jobs. However, you can start

blog writing for money
Learn blogging!

some training with no cost on top of your:

  • Computer
  • Internet service
  • Power source
  • Time and place to sit and learn


You can find out what a basic website is like and how you set it up to start talking (writing in a relaxed conversational manner) about your chosen niche or product.

What Are The Best Niches For Affiliate Marketing?


The best answer to that is, the niches that hold your highest interest, topics you can really talk up a storm about that you love to share with people. And I bet you can find some on Clickbank.


Look at all the categories that interest you. Seek results by the Popularity “High To Low” filter.


You will see the products with the highest commissions (some as high as 75%). Click on their titles to see the sales pages, and read all the way down. Some are a tad over-the-top but do well.


One warning: some ClickBank vendors give their affiliate marketers sales pages that are “booby-trapped”. For example:

  • Your reader clicks from your blog page to the vendor’s offer page
  • Right at the top is an email address capture box (for a free sample maybe)
  • You have now lost that reader which YOU referred to the vendor


Thus the vendor benefits from your work, and you don’t get a commission.


Just don’t promote products that have these “leaks” from you to the vendor.


Most sales pages only give “Add to cart” buttons that go to the Buy page which tracks back to you.


Vendors certainly can promote their products with as many websites as they like. They do compete with their affiliates. But mostly not as I described above.


You will have a nickname of your choosing associated with your a ClickBank account, and an additional ID for every product you promote, if you wish.


That is so you can tell which products are selling best.


Get the benefits of free introductory and professional training by clicking over to a site that teaches you how to blog for money.






This  is for everyone who wants to increase their income by working at home on their computer.


Next, you can prepare a website for your ClickBank affiliate marketing system.


This training will explain every detail you need to know to lay the foundation for this business model.

Not Enough Money In Retirement

“Not Enough Money In Retirement”? Need help?

how to learn on the internet“Are you talking to me? You bet I do not have enough money in retirement!”

If you have never worked on the internet, never started a blog, never heard of keywords or search engine optimization – fear not!

I am going to help you with all of those things right now. First a little about me that I didn’t divulge on my About Me page.

What I didn’t really ‘fess up to on that page is, I really needed a “for dummies” training ten years ago. I would have saved so much time and money if I had known what I needed. I knew I would not have a high enough income to retire, and I did lose traction seeking the real “how-to”.

Internet Marketing For A Work From Home Business

I guarantee* you will not waste time and money like I did.

(I’m not calling you Dummy, please don’t think that. But I know there’s nothing like starting out trying to learn the in’s and out’s of blog writing for money to make you feel dumb!)

You came here for a personal reason today. Perhaps you’re:

  • Unemployed
  • Under-employed (had your hours cut)
  • Want to start a business
  • Senior jobs after retirement is a topic on your mind
  • How to earn from a blog – you want to know!
  • Income after retirement – you know you won’t have enough
  • Average income – retirees – you’ve read about it and it’s a nightmare
  • Making a little money blogging and you’d like to up your game
  • You are officially or unofficially disabled and need to increase ss income

I don’t use the word “guarantee*” lightly. I don’t know what anyone besides myself can or will do about learning, applying, improving their skills or helping others too.

Not Enough Work At Home Jobs

This factor really should be overcome in this day and age. I know a few people who can easily do ninety percent of their job at home except “they want me to go in for these stupid meetings”.

What’s stupid is not the fact of meetings, but that the meetings can all be done via skype or some other

electronic means, as you enjoy your morning coffee. But the corporate model demands close supervision and control of people, so perhaps this will never happen.

Recently at Online Work For The Disabled  I cautioned job seekers to look closely at “work at home” job ads at Monster .com as some required a “% of travel”.

Yet there are senior citizen business opportunities – internet business for seniors!

You can click around this website and every article and page is directly related to online business for seniors, the disabled, those seeking encore careers after 50, or 60, or a person of any situation who simply wants to learn how to make a website that they can market from.

start, earn while you learn, just keep getting better at providing information to people who are shopping, looking for the best deal or specialty product, and who knows – you may be that person who has exactly the info they’re seeking.

They will buy the item they want, and clicking through to the purchase from your website earns you a commission.

This internet marketing academy is called Wealthy Affiliate and you can read a review about it here. If you want to try out that system (no cost to you) I’ll see you there!

Do I Need A Website To Be An Affiliate Marketer?

Technically, you don’t but I highly recommend it as it is the best way to create a business that will develop and last for years. Wealthy Affiliate will provide two free websites for you, and show you how to build them properly.

So once you’ve logged in to start with some free instruction (exactly the same as what the paid members start with) and you get a blog going, what connects prospective buyers with your site?

Keywords! Keywords are the words people “google” or search with online. There is a method for you to find these keywords.

How To Find The Best Keywords For Your Site

There are a few techniques you will learn, to find keywords. For example: search “patio umbrellas” and most likely amazon, Target, Walmart, and Home Depot will show. Your little blog will be down below, or several pages in. Invisible!

But, if you have an article about “wooden framed canvas patio umbrellas”, buyers looking for that particular item can find your article and consequently click over to wherever you have affiliated.

Wealthy Affiliate has a free keyword tool for their members. This tool saves a lot of time for bloggers to

seo classroom video
Click on the picture for a class!

pinpoint the best keywords/phrases that they need to write into their article content, and use in the title. In the trial period, you will have thirty searches with their keyword software to search.


This video class is about how to set up a “plug in” – a tool that automates the search engines’ (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.) ease of finding your site. It uses the keywords in your title and description of your blog to signal your presence on the web.

You will further help your web presence by adding posts with helpful content – two or three per week – that will raise the value, or ranking of your site. Ranking is where the search engines put your site or posts, and the front page is where we all want to be!

By the way Kyle, who you hear talking on the video class, and who you can see in the picture is one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate. He is very active on the site.

The cool thing is, I learned that at Wealthy Affiliate, and I found out there are several ways to do it. There are a few lessons in the training that detail the best use of images.

What Is The Best Affiliate Program Commission?

That will be the topic of my next post. I don’t mean to tease, so my answer to that question is Clickbank.

Baby Boomers Killed America

senior working at home

Newsflash – Baby Boomers Killed America! Say what?

I was just researching an entirely different topic about baby boomers (that being baby boomers need more money, continued below) and discovered that there are Baby Boomer haters on the internet. Shocking…

…and Laughable! What a crazy premise, that Baby Boomers killed America. Here are a few of their other stunning headlines:

  • The baby boomers have ruined the world
  • Baby boomers need to die
  • Baby boomers are the problem
  • There is a Baby Boomers social security problem

There is more of that venomous ilk. I referred to a specific boomer-blaming article in a previous article HERE.

I wonder if this hating would apply in the same way to the disabled, or disabled vets, who require social services and health care – aren’t they also a “social security problem”?

This is just the weirdest mindset, to my way of thinking. Applying logic to this premise, then, the current Baby Boomer haters are saying that when they reach retirement age and collect their Social Security benefits, they too, will be “destroying America”. Nutty!

The Baby Boomer Economic Impact

In the US and in all countries the Baby Boomers have a positive economic impact. Those who can, travel a great deal, prospering local and far away economies. Airlines, trains, bus tours, hotels, restaurants, taxi cabs, car/boat/bicycle rentals, tour guides, museums, cruise ships, et al, would not agree that retirees “need to die”.

senior makes economic impact
Homeless vet was a volunteer caretaker.

Many retired people are active as volunteers in their communities, while they are busy “destroying” their country with every breath they take.

Those who cannot afford any luxuries still consume for their basic needs.

And, don’t forget, those who receive Social Security or Old Age Pension benefits and who can’t afford to quit their jobs, still pay taxes! They are now paying tax for a second time on income previously earned, and they are contributing into the system at the same time.

Best Second Career For Baby Boomers


A new career for baby boomers is the topic I was researching for when I bumped into the hater material. Recently I became aware that a friend had become involved in an MLM (multi level marketing) business. He is past retirement age and still working full time.

I don’t recommend any MLM company as a good business in retirement. My reasons are:

  • You must pay monthly ($100 – $400 or equivalent is the usual) to stay in the system
  • You must buy the products whether you can sell them or not
  • You must attend rally-like trainings (your time, your car, your gas)
  • Many charge monthly for your “back office” web portal when you can create your own websites for free
  • They are called “home businesses” but you are never at home!

I used to work a couple of MLM businesses. I didn’t really get it that you pay them to LET YOU work for them.

Oh the irony! Here is a person who is old, still working and actually working twice as hard, and is paying out about one third of his social security benefits to be allowed to work!

One theoretical positive about MLM recruitment is that there is no senior age discrimination. They will take anyone’s money.

Seniors Working At Home Independently

“Juner” is an example of a senior making good on her retirement time. She lived with her daughter so she had room and board covered. She had 80% government health coverage but paid almost half of her monthly benefits to get the other 20% coverage.

Discover Ebay!

June liked to contribute to the household and had always been fiercely independent. (Later, the homeless vet in the picture above, “need to die” John, helped take care of her).

And Juner found ebay! She bought lot bags of scrap jewelry, and sold the valuable pieces separately and for profit. She nearly always found some gold or silver pieces in the bags, and even came across some with diamonds.

June worked online, at home, without incurring any major expenses. She paid to ship her jewelry, and that is all.

Ebay selling is just one of the ways a person at home can make money. I describe more ways here.

I consider Juner a blessing in my life. I’m so glad she’s among us, “destroying America”.

Disclosure: Juner and John are just a few years older than boomers, but I prefer to give examples from personal knowledge.

Why Choose Work At Home

the best jobs for baby boomers at home
Best second careers baby boomers at home

I have outlined some good jobs that can be worked at home here. These are employee jobs, and always check if a position requires you to go into the place of work.

I know I can only speak for myself, but I bet you can relate:

  • I have put a lot into my (now very down-sized) home and I like to be here
  • I appreciate my boss and job but I still want to retire
  • I think I have an edge on this ‘seniors working at home’ job because of Wealthy Affiliate website training
  • I need more money to put into some other creative ideas
  • I want to avoid senior age discrimination if I need an encore career
  • I want more time to visit (fill in your friend/family names _______) John and Juner

What Is The Best Free Internet Marketing Training Online?

This is very important. To be offered a real, not fake, free trial, is rare. And it’s gold!

  • A free trial where you don’t have to give payment information, and remember to cancel within X days
  • A free trial where you can investigate a huge training community with constant updates
  • Where you can participate in Live Feed questions and answers
  • View a couple of thousand Q & A’s about building websites for free

Here is my guide about how to get started with other seniors working at home.

Just for a laugh – here are a couple more hater headlines I found:

10 best Tips – How To Learn How To Build A Website

One – Your Time Management – Assign Some Specific Hours


This section of the post takes you through a process of getting the most training during the Wealthy Affiliate 7 day free trial, from when you sign up.

A full article about that opportunity is HERE.

When you log in to gain access to the training, you will be asked for a user name and password.

Only if you proceed to another month of access to all the classes and videos, including the Friday live webinars (where you get to ask questions!) will you be asked for a form of payment.

To assess how you can get the most out of your free trial period do a little analysis:

  • If you have a nine to five job, decide what hours you can set aside to view classes
  • You will have one or two weekend days in the seven day trial regardless of when you sign up
  • Once you’ve got a time management plan, let your family know about your “Do Not Disturb hours
  • Review the comfort level of your work station and adapt it, to make sure you can work sitting or standing too, once in a while
  • Reflect On  How You Study Best

Do you like to take notes as you listen to or view classes? If so, have a special notebook (you can get them at the Dollar Store) to document your ideas and questions.

This will become a training diary/journal as you progress in learning how to make a good blog.

A money making blog! That sounds good, doesn’t it?

Have your sharpened pencils or easy flowing pens ready!

Another option is to pause the training videos and quickly make notes in a document on your computer.

TwoYour Time Management Plan


You want to get the most benefit possible from your free learning opportunity, don’t you? Maybe your schedule looks something like this:

  • One hour learning with your morning cuppa and breakfast before you get ready for work
  • A half hour or forty-five minutes during your lunch hour at work – if you have a laptop, tablet or smart phone
  • Two to three hours after dinner each work night
  • Weekends – no limit!

Say you start on a Wednesday evening. You sign up, go into the community website, and take a half hour just to look around and find the classes.

get started now image

Don’t get crazy and stay up till 2 AM if you have to go to work the next morning. Make sure you get some good sleep hours in for that one hour before you go to work!

Take note that in the first couple of classes you are going to create at least one website (you get to make two in the free trial). You will spend some time in that section deciding on what product or category of products you will write about, and make money from referrals.

Here are three of my articles you can read quickly, before you get in, and start using up your free time. They were written to evoke ideas from your past experience and knowledge, hobby expertise and the like.

  1. How To Turn A Hobby Into A Business
  2. I Want To Work For Myself What Should I Do
  3. How To Sell Information On The Internet

Pick whichever title appeals to you and give it a read!

There are millions of products to promote to millions of online shoppers. You shop online, right? It is so easy and convenient for everyone, and especially for people who are confined to their home.

Now anyone living in a small town can shop with access to every item sold in the malls, in boutiques, and gourmet stores.

Who would have imagined this twenty-five years ago?

Three – So How DO I Make Money With My Computer?


First you follow numbers one and two above.

Why is this important?

With the Wealthy Affiliate professional blog training, you are going to create your blog as you learn.

You will know how to make a blog with the correct legal notices. The site gives you templates to copy and paste into the required pages in your blog editor area. You will simply switch out your name/site name at the correct spots.

The verbiage keeps you legal. It makes sure your readers know that they can safely come to your site any time.

Your site is safe to leave comments on.

It reveals to your visitors what data may be collected during their visit. It also explains that third party sites like Google and Amazon, for example do collect data when a person clicks through to those sites from your blog, and that you have no control over that.

A lot more is explained that most peeps browsing on line never think about.

The disclosures are important and legally required. Having them means that your hard work will not go to waste because you have forgotten one of these items.

Yet, during this training period, it will take you maybe one hour to get all this accomplished.

I think that is pretty amazing myself. And maybe you don’t believe me right now, but you will do it. And when you create your second trial blog it will go even faster for you.

These free blogs are real sites on the internet. At some point, you may want to convert them to a real dot com/co/info/net et al website. At that point you will get discount domain name prices from Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate uses WordPress as a platform (the coded architecture) for you to build your blog on. The Themes (appearance styles) you choose from, are attractive, practical, whimsical, magazine-like, whatever you need or fancy.


picture of websites

What’s really important is that they are mobile friendly. People can find your posts and buy from them on their phones!

You’re probably getting the idea now how much is built-in, before you even start.

You don’t need to know any coding, or have a business degree to get going with this adventure.

Four – Do I Need To Know Code At Any Point?



Naturally you want to comprehend exactly how this works, right?

After setting up the legal pages that every site should have, you will learn how to write the correct content on your blog.

You will be advised to use a conversational style so your readers think that you are trustworthy, and are a real person.

Your personal voice counts.

You don’t need to rush off and find out how to learn how to write!

People read so many advice blogs online and they truly appreciate a unique voice, so be yourself. It will contribute to your “brand”.

It will help bring visitors back to your site for more information.

For example, if you are a fishing or woodworking or quilting expert, you will naturally use the hobby lingo. Your readers who have searched for specific information about the latest “how-to’s” or special products will relate to you. You’re speaking their language!

I have had a blog about ballet for over ten years. I can speak the language. If I tried to write a blog about woodworking just because it is a popular topic, it would take me ten years to write a couple of articles!

I doubt I could impress any real woodworkers!

An easy to understand and informative post will get bookmarked. It can be shared on social media and more people will visit it.

It may get mentioned in forums, or emailed to a reader’s friend. I do that all the time, don’t you?

Monetize Your Experience!


Five – How Will My Blog Get Seen Online?


That can be an intimidating thought. When you use a search engine, you get to page of articles on Widgets. Maybe the first five are ads.

Maybe you go to the second page to find exactly what you’re looking for. And you find it.

Did you notice up at the top of the first page that there were 76,000,000 search results?

That’s what I mean by intimidating!

If you have organized your time management well, you will have the time to review the class on Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, a couple of times.

True confessions – I have watched it at least five times, I lost count.

Now that I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate I can review any class or video, including the live webinars, anytime.

Now we come to a special benefit within the Wealthy Affiliate writing tools.

You will learn about Keywords – the words people put into the search bar in Google, Yahoo, or whatever search engine they use.

You get seen online by using those keywords, or phrases, in your blog titles. And you don’t have to intuit or just guess them!

You will have access to a free keyword finder, that is paid for if you’re not a member. And you will be shown how to use it.


letters SEO

Here I want to mention the community and the many mini-trainings.

Google is the most used search engine, right? Many people haven’t even heard of another one except maybe Yahoo.

Google isn’t our best friend in some ways, although it is very helpful in others.

One thing it will do periodically is “move the goal posts” regarding the best way to get found online.

When that happens there are new blogs written within Wealthy Affiliate by other seasoned members who explain what’s happened, and the tips to work best with it.

You have access to all of these mini-trainings, as a member.

Six –  I Still Don’t Get Who Will Pay Me And Why

I am guessing you may have spent twelve to fifteen hours studying through the above five sections.

The most important focus you need to have is comprehension. You can go back and edit/improve any posts or pages you have published, any time.

I know that resistance is futile when it comes to a perfectionist. Just remember that your writing style is friendly and casual!

You are on your way to becoming an affiliate marketer. If you’ve been in sales, you understand commissions.

Affiliate marketers get paid in commissions from websites like:

  • Amazon
  • Ebay
  • Target
  • Home Depot
  • Sites with marketplaces of many product lines that vendors place there
  • Clickbank, a digital (instant download) product site with thousands of ebooks


It’s good to get your blog grown to at least twenty to twenty-five posts before you sign up to be, for example an Amazon affiliate.

Most vendors want to see that you actually have a site with some visitors.

This is to your advantage as well, because at that point, you have spent time editing your posts, adding attractive images, using headlines to break up  your text, and generally making a good user experience for your site visitors.

Each vendor site will walk you through the sign up area. You will get a tracking code, or affiliate ID that will follow a shopper to a site, and that is how you get paid a commission on that sale.

This is one of the Disclosure pages you will make when you start your blog. You inform your readers that if they buy a product through your affiliate link, that you will get a commission.

This is a required disclosure. It shows you can be trusted, because you are being transparent.

Seven – One Of The Cool Built-ins You Get On Your Free Site


The WordPress platform has “plugins“, small pieces of software that format your blog, or configure it to perform a certain way behind the scenes.

One of these time savers is All In One SEO.

You will get a walk through lesson on how to further set this up for your blog.

Certain fields need to be filled in, and certain boxes need to be checked. This gives you the best functioning for Google, Bing and Pinterest to view your site and help get you traffic to your posts.

As you develop your blog and start to get traffic, you will need to add to this plug in, and you will be helped with that too.

One of the purposes in having the search engines know about your sites, is that they each will keep track of your visitor stats, and with considerable detail.

You can see how many readers visit your site, stay on it, and which keywords were used to find you. In this way, you can further use those keywords to write more posts!

The search engines’ analytics area also let you know if you have any errors in your posts/pages that you can correct for better function.

Another part of this training is to tell you what other plug ins to install (all with a click or two!) to enable easier viewing by the search engines.

This helps you get closer to the first of the search pages, and closer to the top.

Eight – Keep Up Your Healthy Habits As Best You Can


During this rather intense seven day learning binge, I strongly recommend that you keep up some of your exercising, sleep well, and eat well.

The last thing you want is to get over-tired. Studies show that you won’t remember what you have learned before you sleep, if you don’t sleep at least seven hours.

One trick to keep the circulation going, and calories burning, is to sit on a physio ball. You can bounce and fidget as you study.

If you have a stand-up work station you already know that trick! Walk on the spot all day lol.

I do understand that you can get hooked, it is so exciting finding out how this really works!

You’re thinking about making enough money every month to retire early, maybe?

  • Traveling more?
  • Renovating your house?
  • Retiring your spouse?
  • Sending kids to college?

Whether you’re a senior or a student, I get how exciting this is!

I still find the articles online about making money and bringing in a six figure income with a blog.

Yes, there are people who do that. They have done the training and done the work. This can be done!

And do you know what these people all say about how they succeeded? They were:

  • Consistent
  • Time management experts (they learned as they went and got better)
  • Created a balance of researching/writing/socializing/exercising
  • Disciplined with their diet and sleep hours
  • Perseverance-ready, they knew there was no overnight success
  • Were able to reach out to the members of Wealthy Affiliate when they were stuck (humble)

I bet that you have all the potential to do the above.

Your aspirations brought you here, and you are ready to excel, over time, and become a successful blogger.


happy family picture

That’s you, right?

You are going to improve all your best habits, becoming a blogger. You are going to grow out of all your worst habits.

You’ve got this!

Nine – So Many Ways To Succeed!


I wrote an article about how to make money with YouTube. I was astounded to find this young woman’s story. I heard it on the radio (Bill Handel KFI iHeart Radio) one morning while driving to my job.

This lady wrote about Slime. You know the kind that kids who go on Nickleodeon get slimed with? I had no idea how big Slime is! That’s because my child is a grownup and I’m out of the loop.

Making money with YouTube means drawing views. The Slime topic drew views from

a) kids

b) a parent whom the kid begged to watch it and buy or make them some Slime

c) grandparents whom the child begged to watch because the parent was too busy

d) a school teacher who planned to make Slime in class and told all the kids to watch it!

And guess what happened! Elmer’s Glue, an ingredient for Slime, ran out of glue!

If you’d like to read how this young lady retired her family and built them all a mansion to live in, my article is HERE.

Ten – Your Non-Affliliate Marketing Talents


Another way some people do a lot of income paying work online is Fivrr.

(My article HERE.)

You may write:

  • Great resumes
  • Reviews
  • Make beautiful images
  • Design book covers
  • Create printables, invitations, and more

You can capitalize on your experience with design or writing  through Fivrr.

I did not realize this until I needed it. I wrote an ebook and published it on Amazon. It is called Facts About Saturated Fats. It was a learning exercise for me.

I bought a $28.00 tutorial online about writing an ebook in 24 hours.

I just had to try it!

Well, it took me a week.

I needed a book cover, so I went to Fivrr. I provided an image and my author name.

It cost five dollars and I added a tip of five dollars. With the Fivrr fee to use their site, I paid $12.00. No big deal, since I did not know how to do any of this myself.

And by the way, I published this ebook on Amazon (a small guide book, 20+ pages). I never promoted it and I have sold about fifty copies. I made money!

Imagine if I had promoted this book with all the social media/blog posts/forum participation opportunities et al!

That’s an avenue I haven’t pursued, but could, any day I decide to do so.

And you can too!

Do you have a passion, a favorite topic that you collect information about? That you think everyone should know?

Write it all down!

You can create ebooks and publish them on Amazon.


And the whole point of this blog is to show you where you can learn how to make a good blog.


A blog that can promote your ebook and you can then make money from selling hundreds or thousands.

It’s been done!

You may also be gifted in arts and crafts and use Etsy for selling them. Or have your own Amazon store and stock your wares in a local Amazon warehouse. No packing and shipping!

There are ways to do these things and you can learn how to build a website to promote your wares/ideas/ebooks/health products/hobby products/ and make sales and commissions.

It is real work, and I hope I’ve encouraged you to take a free week’s trial at it.

I hope I’ve helped you to get organized and get the absolute max out of that week.

If you decide to move and become a member of Wealthy Affiliate it will cost you $49 per month.

But wait! Here’s another bargain.


special offer words

If, before the seven days are up, you decide to go for your first month’s membership, it will cost you only $19.00.

So whatever you learned and got done in your seven day trial, you can now do four times as much training for under twenty dollars.

And that is why so many people join Wealthy Affiliate. The training gives them a chance to prove to themselves what they can do when they apply themselves with consistency, perseverance and enthusiasm.

Baby Boomers Retirement Problems

retired baby boomer

“Approximately 78 Million Baby Boomers at or near retirement”.

That headline from September 2015 is one of about twenty dominating a search on this topic, baby boomers retirement problems.

baby boomersMany baby boomers retire each day – to the count of 10,000, in the US. Since that “boom” was related to a set of years, I assume that retirement numbers are similar in many other countries.

Who are the baby boomers? “Baby boomers are people born during the demographic post–World War II baby boom approximately between the years 1946 and 1964.” – From Wikipedia.

Average Retirement Savings Baby Boomers Issues:

  • Baby boomers retirement shortfalls
  • Millennials alert your parents about retirement 10,000 per day reaching the age of 65
  • Boomers may live through decades of retirement

foraging for food“it’s almost like the millions of seniors living in poverty are invisible.”– Neera Tandeera of Center For American Progress

An increase in extreme poverty, defined as living below the annual income of $12,000.00, and deemed to include about six and a half million seniors in the US today, is more likely experienced by:

  • Women
  • Persons of color
  • Persons with health problems

Baby boomer women are impacted by:

  • Shorter number of years in the work force
  • Smaller paychecks even in the top five percent controlling over fifty percent of assets
  • Longer life spans
  • Widowhood
  • Early retirement to care for elders
  • Loss of property and pension savings due to divorce

Similar to the Climate Change crisis, public policy is blinded concerning the looming retirement crisis involving homelessness and the “food-insecure” population.

Food insecurity is different from hunger. Many seniors can be food insecure because their access to food is impaired. Trapped with a low income they are:

  • Without a vehicle
  • Disabled and cannot shop for themselves
  • Don’t understand how to tap the system for help (meals on wheels for example)
  • Live in isolated areas without a senior ride system
  • Suffer from depression and anxiety and don’t reach out

And there’s more to be concerned about! But, track with me, because I’m heading toward a solution for you.

Jim Tankersley, journalist, blames Baby Boomers for everything that’s “wrong with America’s economy”.

While he notes a couple of times in his article that it wasn’t intentional, he states that boomers have “pillaged” the economy for decades. He thinks that now retirees should be taxed extra to “pay back” the advantages they had, instead of receiving any benefits!

(Washington Post November 5, 2015)

So does he mean that 78 million retired individuals are responsible for the following?

  • Moving factory jobs overseas
  • Deficit funding never ending wars
  • Creating climate change
  • Polluting the planet with the use of fossil fuels
  • Allowing Congress to allow all this?

While his article is well presented and covers pertinent details, it ignores the fact that policy makers pretty well cater to the multinational corporations that do not function in America’s (or in any country’s) interest, as opposed to serving their constituents. However, that’s a separate problem.

Baby boomers retirement problems are multi-fold! Yet most just need one thing!

need more moneyThey need more money!

Regardless of how seniors arrived where they are now, with fifty percent of us in financial jeopardy, and the next forty percent retiring with an annual income scarcely above the official poverty amount, what can a person or couple do now?

Blog writing for money is a way out of the financial doldrums. Yet, getting started can be bewildering, or impossible, some would think.

Does that idea make you nervous? Please don’t be! Get information on blog writing for money at NO COST to you. You can click here for an in-depth review of how to learn more about this truly unique opportunity!

Disabled Veterans Jobs

It is tragic that disabled veterans aren’t retired with better benefits. Many have skills that could be utilized with starting an at home business. (At NO COST to them!)

There are tons of scams about working on line. They are time wasting and money losing, for sure. Everyone should be skeptical about offers on writing a blog for money.

I really want to help you, if you’re one of the baby boomers with retirement problems, or looking for disabled veterans jobs.

Building Websites Free

writing blogs for moneyEven if you’re unfamiliar with working on computers, or web site building, or even writing – you can do this!

You’ll need training – and you can start it for free. Enough of it, to determine if you’ll want more.

Once you have made a couple of websites, with a few clicks, and for free, you will feel the excitement of reaching out to the world via the internet.

There are many legitimate work from home jobs for seniors! You can make commissions on sales from:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Clickbank
  • Amazon
  • Home Depot

There are many more hundreds of businesses offering affiliate positions!

If you have been shopping on line from websites where you found what you wanted to buy, it is likely that an affiliate marketer has received a commission of your purchase amount.

You could soon be such an individual, who will be paid a percentage of sales, when the customer has arrived at the point of sale, from YOUR web site.

Another source of products – Clickbank, is a web site where digital products, or ebooks are sold. These products are instant downloads for the purchasers. It is easy to find something you like to promote, among the hundreds of tutorials and DIY design products.

Clickbank has its own tutorials to help you get started. Its system will create links for you to put on your product reviews connecting the sales back to you, and periodically you will be paid your accrued commissions.

Even if you don’t own a computer, you can still plug into training about building websites free at a public library. And you can actually start real instruction for zero dollars and study video tutorials that spell it out for you, step by step.

Video tutorials are great, but what’s even more amazing is having access to personal questions and answers from seasoned marketers.

You can have this advantage! Click now to walk away from your baby boomer retirement problems.

What Can I Write A Blog About

what can I write a blog about

What Can I Write A Blog About?

The Smartblogger site, a blog site which makes about $100,000.00 a month, advises getting started with Affiliate Marketing as the best business strategy. So there’s a professional answer to “what can I write a blog about”? Marketing on line.

I enjoyed reading that fact from author Jon Morrow who has been in the business of blogging for eight years.

This page isn’t so much about  “what-is” or “how-to”. The links however, go to pages that are. This page is to prod your imagination and hopefully get you excited about blog writing for money.learn to work on the internet

I explain Affiliate Marketing HERE.

People ask me about making fast blog income, if it’s possible. I have to say no,  because a money making website takes time and knowledge to build. I am going to tell you where to learn what you need to know.

My goal is to help you get past any self doubts you might have about your ability to create an effective home business.

Not everyone with talent for writing or a charming personality can create a blog that makes money.

How To Start With An Online Business

My Getting Started page is a general overview which gives you access to an affiliate marketing Starter Account where you can make a blog for free online.Two, actually. This page contains more specifics.

So in the sequence of steps you will make, or perhaps have just opted for, in how to set up a blog for free, you:

  • Log on through your $0.00 Starter Account at the Wealthy Affiliate website
  • Begin the training classroom
  • Get your first domain name “mynewblog”…for site #1
  • And then you get to a training video about the content that you will put onto your blog first

The reason why I urge you to “just do it” is because you will be able to walk through a lot of the nitty-gritty start just do ithow-to’s just the same as a paid member can. No money, no commitment needed. Just take advantage of the free trial time!

I know you will soon understand that the information you’re getting far outweighs talent and charm.

Privacy Policy Online

One important legal issue a website deals with is a Privacy Policy. This page of your website explains to readers that their privacy is protected and that your site does not collect data on a person who is simply visiting to read your information.

It covers other details that many readers never think about, however, it is good to provide the more curious with all the information they want.

Among the many things you get from membership with Wealthy Affiliate is a pre-written standard Privacy Policy covering all the bases for you.

You can copy/paste it and insert “” where applicable. (Site rubix is the training platform used to practice building a blog properly, with no financial outlay).

How To Set Up A Blog For Free

During the training trial period you will also see a tutorial covering the topic of finding a niche product, or product category, which you would like to promote.

You will learn how to research the competitive factors surrounding that topic. This is a crucial step in the process of your blog set up.

Searching takes time, yet will save you a lot of time and energy. You don’t want to start a site and then abandon it because you weren’t aware of the competition. (been there done that!)

“So – what CAN I write a blog about?”

You are about to create a self-employed position for yourself. And you want to love your job, right? Consider:

  • What do you love to talk about?
  • Dream about?
  • Love to collect?
  • Are an expert in?
  • Have a medical condition (or know someone who does) you’ve become knowledgeable about?

And consider what other people buy, in relation to each of those topics:

  • Parts
  • Accessories
  • Updates
  • Books about
  • Services needed for

Your reader clicks from your article to make a purchase from a store (Amazon, Target, Home Depot, etc.,) and after a short period of time, to account for returns, you get  paid your affiliate commission.

How To Create Effective Content For A Website

What I love about the Wealthy Affiliate training is that it is designed to generate ideas for blog content. It is well organized and you will DO, not just view as you go.

Your practice blogs won’t be wasted! You can transfer all the content to a dot com and keep building. (Discount prices!)

Get your free Starter Account – view as many classrooms as you can – and write down your ideas for “what can I write a blog about?“!

Online Work For The Disabled

how do bloggers make a living

Online Work For The Disabled

Disabled veterans and retired military service men and women often face challenges with employment. For many, online work for the disabled is the best solution for this problem.

This article will discuss employment work-at-home positions, and a self-employed work model.

The latter topic is basically what my whole web site is about. This solution also works for seniors, low income workers with retirement age looming, military spouses and folks who have been laid off or retired early.solution online work for the disabled

As for online jobs for the disabled, let’s look at why it is such a great solution.

  • No issues with relocating
  • No problems with lack of employment in your area
  • No need to drop your local network of family, friends, and health care workers
  • Training is available for anyone, anywhere in the world, via the internet
  • Learn at your own pace and try out the business model for no cost

Top 10 Legitimate Work From Home Jobs

oDesk Trainer gave the following list on Military .com:

Transcriptionist for medical/psychiatric/dental documentation: Transforming the obscure jargon of health care practitioners into comprehensible reports is a well paid task for those who have familiarity with the nomenclature of the fields. Normally the employment is in clinical facilities. Work-from-home opportunities involves search and promotion on the part of the self-employed to establish contacts and acquire work. Estimated income –$33,000.

Virtual Assistant: You could be a professional or personal assistant. At home on your own computer, you would perform secretarial tasks. $35,000 per year.

Translation: If your forte is another language(s) you can make about $44,000 working on line in this field.

Travel Agent: I’m not sure this one is still in the game. People can now go on line and make their own reservations.

Call Center Phone Rep: some companies do have a system for customer service assistants who work from home.

Web Site Developer and System Maintenance: Site creation and IT work can easily be done from home. These jobs seem to be readily available and provide an excellent salary.

Tech Support: Where would we be without our technical trouble shooters! Social skills are needed, along with the expertise – and this too can be an at home job.

Editors and Technical Writers: This field is big across many industries and can be worked remotely.

Teacher: K-12 on line classrooms are everywhere! Contact your local school boards!

Graphic Design: Design, brand, and draft. Businesses compete hard for a distinctive logo and image. The computer applications are all in place for this field.

I’ll add a number Eleven here: How To Make A Living With Fiverr. If you click on that title you’ll get the complete article.

All of the above jobs assume that you have an updated computer set up at home, including good quality sound for phone contact and high speed internet. But how many disabled vets have all that?

You must do your own job search and compete for the available positions. Given that job listings are constantly changing, you can check daily and, for example filter a search at with “work from home” and your city or area.

jobs for disabled
Job search

Today I see that in Austin, TX there are jobs in the fields of sales, advertising, Registered Nurse Training, social work instruction, and IT work. Some state that they need someone from the area.

While a job for a social worker is described as “work from home”, “% of travel requirements” is “unspecified”. That is another filter that must be in place if you cannot leave your home. (Some companies may want you to interview in person as a final step, or attend periodic meetings.)

To solve this potential obstacle, I am offering a look at a different solution, online affiliate marketing. It is a self-employment business model which requires training. Two advantages of this model are:

  • You can try out the basic training for free, initially
  • You can center your entreprenurial effort around topic(s) you are familiar with and passionate about – you choose.

Disabled Vets Live In Poverty – Solution!

909,000 search engine results show for that phrase. The stories and reports are sad beyond belief. How can this be? Is there a truly workable solution?how do bloggers make a living

My personal snippet…A disabled vet I’ve corresponded with over the years – Holly Mann – was my first tutor on internet marketing. Holly served in Iraq, and was discharged with a disability and meager support to rebuild her life. She sold her computer so she could buy a flight to Thailand to augment her resources. Then she built herself another computer from used parts.

With an intermittent dial up connection, Holly built small web sites for real estate businesses and sold them. She was soon making $12,000.00 a month while traveling, and eventually returned to the US. She is now retired. Her book “Honest Riches” was a best seller and it was the first affiliate product I marketed.

Holly was repulsed by the numerous income at home scams – the many dead end scam sites charging money upfront and offering nothing, that ruined the field for many. Thus “Honest Riches”. That was 2008. Since then, I could find no one who would honestly teach…

…How Do Bloggers Make A Living

After trying many courses, memberships that accessed a forum or tutorials, (and many of which, free or paid, were scams), I found Wealthy Affiliate University. I signed up for free and put together two web sites – here is more about how that works.

I was working two jobs then and could not keep up with the website building. Later, my hours were cut and I immediately returned to its intensive training.

The Wealthy Affiliate instruction teaches blog writing using WordPress.



You can see all the material that is covered. And that is just one of many training classes. With a free account you will learn:

How To Earn Money Online With A Website

  • What a WordPress blog is (this website is a WordPress blog)
  • How you make it look the way you want it to
  • How you put your authorship on it
  • How you focus content on promotional products you’re enthusiastic about
  • How you write a blog post to engage readers
  • How to include words that people use to search those products (there is a tool!)
  • How to use images correctly and where to find good ones that are copyright free (you can post your own too)

You can get a blog published in a couple of days with the walk-you-through classes.

Affiliate Marketing

This is set up for individuals who have no code writing abilities. If you have experience writing HTML and can publish to the internet, you are way ahead of other newbies who seek online opportunities for the disabled.

I recommend Wealthy Affiliate with its inclusive volume of classes.  You can click right here for more about how bloggers make a  living if there isn’t enough money in retirement.

You can participate in many of these classes for free to get the idea of how do bloggers make a living.

I honestly think you will be flooded with ideas for veteran work at home jobs. Just think about all the things you have always loved to spend time doing. The favorite past times you had, and all the products you had, or wanted, to enhance your fun, or your previous jobs:

  • Tools
  • Equipment
  • Accessories
  • Recipes
  • Ingredients
  • Electronics
  • Appliances
  • Apparel
  • Art (writing, drawing, crafts, music)

There is no end to the items that you can choose to promote when you start affiliate marketing with a website. You only need one, or one category or niche. Yet you will get two when you sign up with a Starter Account.

And you really can start for free. Assuming you have a computer and an internet connection, you’re on!

It takes most newbies a few months to build an attractive website that starts to earn affiliate commissions. When your website leads someone to make a purchase, you get paid.

Your time, persistence and patience will payoff!

It is the real deal and long term training will bring you a monthly cost.
