Bad and Good News Not Sure How I Should Take It

 I've been working on my blog for months now in the hopes that I would make a few hundred dollars a week once I got to the $100 a month mark... but it has not even made one cent that's fine and all because I enjoy creating content but I really need the money because I have been unemployed most of this year 2o16 starting back in February and here it is November.

I really don't know what to do I try to sell stuff on eBay, Letgo, and Craigslist but fail and it just ends up costing me, I gave Amazon a shot but now I owe them money and I don't even have any products listed. Making money online used to be easy when I was working and didn't really care if I made anything or not.

For whatever reason I try to get traffic to my site but just don't get anything but spammers. I need $14.95 per month for hosting but can't pay that any more. I don't have any more unemployment left this year and have not found a new job yet, either I'm over qualified or I'm not posted in enough areas.

I really don't like depending on others and hate asking for help so I stuck a donations button on my website but I have not gotten a single cent... I made a Go Fund Me campaign and got not a single cent... but people can donate twenty or thirty thousand dollars to some one who wants to study toast or makes art from toast or cheese.

I love our country but I am disappointed that I can't make hardly any money online and everyone seems to look at me like I'm some low-life bum... I worked for the same company for 20 years and now I may be going to work for another company which it would be great to get back on the boats again and make over $100,000.00 a year lord knows I need it.

I've been working on a couple of books but because I am out of money with no unemployment coming in or any money coming from online sources, plus my 401k is totally gone now and I'm $140k in debt, oh what joy I can tell you. I just wish I could catch a break, I don't mind working for a living but I really wish some kind soul by the grace of God would send me about $500,000 s0 that I could have a fresh start debit free, and enough to get my tee-shirt, apparel, and gift business up and running.

I want to run my own business but need some more equipment to get things going and a cargo van to run it out of. I could then travel to different trade shows and events and sell shirts, hats, coffee cups, mugs, balls, buttons, picture frames, and more. I have a heat-press but could use a bigger and better one. I don't want to lose my website but I guess I'm going to have to let it go. I just hope I can still log in and save all of my articles.

On the bright side not paying for the website would save me $14.95 a month the same as not playing World of Warcraft any more saves me, not that its doing any good I still don't have any money... like today yesterday I made over $200 by selling my truck for scrap, selling 30 comics, and making and $18 sale on eBay.

If I could do one last thing before I die I would love to be able to pay my dad back ten fold, but I can't even pay him back a dime, I clean up some around the house and everything is falling apart he doesn't have the money left to fix the house back up I lost my house, well I still have it just don't live in it wanted the mortgage company to foreclose on it but they have not so far just added more and more money back to what I had already paid so it will be back up to what I started at and then some, and the funny thing is I've told them to foreclose on it.

Anyway enough of this crap, my life utterly sucks but I'm not to the point where I want to give up, I have to keep trying, life has beat me down and sucked most of my will to live out of me but I keep dusting myself off and trying again... what's funny is that out of all the ways I know to make money online and get traffic that none of them work for me, no matter what I can't even get traffic to my Facebook fan page which I won't even waste my time on here because no one will even read this ever. Other than bots and spiders.

Have a good life and enjoy it while you can because you never know when you just may end up with nothing no matter how well you thought you had prepared. I've even tried Teespring tee-shirts with no luck with ten tries now.

Comic Book Collection

Omg, my post didn't save! I was 700 words in when I hit the wrong button when my phone slipped.

Anyway here is the shot, short version of how I was getting screwed when I went to sell my comics today.

Well I drive an hour and a half to this shop, which seemed like nice people just to lazy and busy to do the research on all the 250 comics I had.

One guy didn't even stop playing a video game, the one assisting me was busy with other issues like the credit card processor was not working and they had printer issues. So basically he only looked up the top ten comics which were not worth much, enough that they would only make a dollar profit, and a couple that were worth  $4.

He stopped looking them up and tried offering me $0.10 each. That made my rear hurt and kind of pissed me off a bit. However I can understand not wanting to look up to value of all 250+ comics that was after all my problem with the whole thing, that and the scanning, researching, listing, and shipping thing.

I would have liked to get  $1.75 each which would still be a good loss for me, but hey I need the money, going through a divorce so I need as much money as I can get.

I would have liked to have gotten  $500. I'm sure that if you knew the right person, they would pay more just to have some of these, but finding the right person is a lot of work and time that I don't have.

So I will split the lot of comics up by publisher and sell them on Craigslist and Facebook groups, I may make a little bit more that way and incur less fees. I will have to meet the buyers at a public place because sometimes it's not safe to have people you don't know come to your house or you over to their's.

Anyway I will get to work cataloging the whole collection, maybe I will get lucky enough a have a few that would be worth a few thousand and find an honest buyer, that won't royally screw me.

I don't mind taking less than something is worth but getting pennies on the dollar is just plain stupid. I figure if I sell these I could meet the buyer at the Walmart in Saraland, Jackson, or Thomasville Alabama. Maybe even a gas station or fast food restaurant in between.

Download my Short Guide (7 Steps to Making Money Online)

I whipped up a short guide on making money online, you can download it here. Being that I'm broke all the time no matter how much money I get I figured I would share with you some of the ways I make money online.

It's a small pdf and while it does contain some affiliate products they come after the free information if anyone is interested in them please order from my links, as I've been unemployed sense February 2016 and still have not found a full-time job plus my last unemployment check will be in next week, a whole $125 and I can't file again until March 2017.

Check out my website which will be under-going a redesign to make it more user friendly.

Life Just Keeps Getting Worse

 Recently my wife and I separated (which is completely MY fault) and I moved in with my dad which I hope is not for very long, while I have my own room, king sized bed, and Internet access it just does not feel like home to me. To make matters worse I still haven't found a job and my unemployment is about to run out next week the last payment will only be $125.00 oh joy.

 My efforts to make money on eBay are not going very well either, I don't have much to sell but may send in my comics and let them sell them for me, but I noticed that they have a two week backlog. Anyway I am going to keep trying for jobs and keep working on a book I'm attempting to write, along will gathering up a little scrap here and there to sell. However if I am still unemployed by October 4th I will be going to the Job Fair at Bishop Collage in Mobile because I have a background in the Maritime industry.

 I'm also about to launch an affiliate marketing campaign that I hope will make me some money, but there are not a whole lot of products that I would feel good about promoting, unless I would be willing to use them myself or have used them before. So maybe I won't make thousands a week, but I really wouldn't mind a couple hundred. My goal is to earn about $600-$700 a day but that is through a whole host of things.

 I will be redoing my website to make it more user friendly in hopes that I can earn a few hundred a week from it, and maybe a hundred or two a month from this blog which would be awesome plus a little on the side from eBay and odd jobs.

My New Blog

I created a new blog it's called Blogging to the World, its not like my Blogger blogs, it contains a bit more information.

I only have a few posts right now but plan on adding around two every day or two until I have around fifty or sixty posts before I start listing the site and trying to make some money with it.


One month has gone by and I've only been able to get 23 posts done. I was shooting for 50 a month but I still think I can get 35 or 40 done before the end of the month.

As soon as I hit the 50 post mark and have about 20 different affiliate programs to offer along with Adsense and such I am going to list my site with the search engines, advertise it on social networks and put an ad on a couple classified ad sites. 

That should get me some traffic and maybe some money too. Which is something I could use a little more of because I still haven't found a new job yet and I may be going to school to earn a degree or two, heck of a time to do this now that I'm 40.

My Five Favorite Affiliate Programs

 Here are five affiliate programs that I have personally tried and find very informative and useful. I may not have made any money from them but that's my fault. I failed to put any of the information to use, and now sadly I can't afford to put much of anything to use.

 It's not all bad because I've got Internet once again, and can now start trying some of the other methods but only once we are settled in at this new smaller house, Anyway that has nothing to do with this little post, sorry about that my mind trailed off I guess...

 Alright time to bang out my five favorite affiliate programs, these are all the ones (well not all of the ones) that I have tried and liked, some can help you make money right away, and others it may take you a little time to get through all the training and then you may have to go through it a couple of times. These are in no order at all based on how much I like them.

  1. Tai Lopez | Love him or hate him, no matter what people say about Tai, I happen to think that most of the information contained in his videos are useful, and there is a good bit of free information too. Granted you could find out most of this stuff if you spent the time researching and refining everything yourself but why bother,
  2. CB University | This one will teach you how to get more traffic to your affiliate offers by using the power of Google and you can apply these techniques to other search engines if you like.
  3. eBay Arbitrage | Do you want to know how to research, find and post items for resale with ease, will it's not going to happen, there is work involved but this course can really help. You may even be able to use this information on some other auction sites. Speaking of eBay I better list some of my stuff after this post.
  4. How-to Write an eBook in Less Than 24 Hours | Yeah you can write an eBook rather quickly if you have all the information you need at your finger tips. I've given this one a shot but I guess I'm not that great at it, or I get side tracked by all the chaos in my home with the move and all. Besides I'm working on a novel and this is for creating short 10 to 20 page informational eBooks.
  5. UTube Cash | I guess You must have already been taken, but regardless of that the information on this site is good enough to get you making some money from YouTube. I've made some videos but I never published them, there is something about the whole putting my self on display thing that bugs me, it's a personal issue.

 Well that's all I have for now, got to go pay some bills... I'm sure I will have something to rant about or some other tidbit of information that someone may find useful later today. I am going to try doing two post a day until I find a job that is,

Unemployment Sucks

 I've been unemployed now since February 2016 after having worked for American Commercial Barge Lines for twenty years, I've been drawing unemployment since March having not found a job yet and blown through my 401k like it was nothing.

 I earn a little extra money on eBay but even that was not enough to keep me from loosing my house even with my dad giving me a few hundred dollars a week and helping pay some of our bills.
I don't know what I am doing wrong I can print t-shirts, paint, haul scrap, but nothing is panning out. I have a US Coast Guard license 200 ton Master of Towing but even that is worthless right now.
I have already tried my hand at making money online with affiliate marketing and social networking but seemed to have missed my mark in those areas as well. I am sorry if this sounds like a sob story, it's not. It's only a quick update on my current situation.

 Could I use a job, yes, could I look harder,  yes I could. Apparently submitting your application to three or for employers a week is not enough. I have not gotten any calls for interviews.
Could I make more money online? Yeah I think I could, I just need to figure out how. It doesn't have to be thousands of dollars a month a few extra hundred would be great.

 Would I accept help? At this point in my life I have to put pride aside and say yes I would accept any help from God or his angels on earth. Hint, hint just send me money to my PayPal account at AT is @.

 Also and hints and tips to help me find the right path to supporting my family again would be great also, the same email address would be fine or use my Gmail address which is the same thing but with Gmail at the end.

 I can't afford Internet, power, water, satellite TV, auto repairs, or much of anything else right now I owe money to way too many businesses and it is only getting higher and higher.
Wish me luck on this leg of my life, one good thing that has happened is my wife got a job training to be an insurance sales associate, but she has to stay gone Monday to Friday and then gets to come home for the weekend. Until her training is complete and they may move her close to where we are living.

 Ok so you want to make money online, don't we all but all of the things you've trued have failed like Facebook ads, Twitter, classified ads, etc. Well there is another way, YouTube! Yes YouTube can give your affiliate offers a surge of traffic if you create compelling videos and you get a few views every day.

Tube Commission Sniper

Facebook Traffic Hack Review

 Alright so today I ordered this course if you will through WarriorPlus but I didn't order any of the upsells. It claims to be able to teach you how to make $100-$200 a day using Facebook ads and posts. It's not a bad idea and it can be done easy enough.

 The course is just a bunch of videos but the information in those videos is useful if your new to Facebook advertising. I don't know about you but an extra $100-$200 a day would be nice, I would settle for an extra $100-$200 a week at this point in my life.

 I do think you can use this information to make some money, but it's not going to happen overnight and while it could make you an extra $100-$200 a day your going to have to find a successful campaign. More likely you'll need a few successful campaigns to make that kind of money, or one really good one.

 I've only made a few sales from Facebook but to be honest I haven't had a reason to try until recently but that is a story for another post another time perhaps. If your interested in making money on Facebook and would like to give this course a shot just click the link below but keep in mind it is an affiliate link and I will make a few dollars from the sale but if your cool with that by all means click away.

Getting Paid for Telling Compainies How Crappy There Products Are

 Online surveys are nothing new and many people are doing it to earn a few extra bucks and even get products to review and keep. Now most of these are not sites that you find all over the Internet only pays you a few cents per survey but there are some sites that pay you a whole lot more.

 This is going to be a very short but sweet post... you can test these sites yourself to see what you think. But don't expect to get rich from them, but after you get started your first few offers may not be all that high but using the information these site provides you with you can start getting larger and larger offers.

 Most of these offers can make you $300 to $500 or more per week, sometimes it can be a lot more. I have done a few myself and gotten a couple checks for about $325.00 now that's nothing to brag about but extra money just for giving my opinion on different products is not a bad thing at all.

 Just remember to have fun and don't over do it, some of these can take an hour or two and others can be completed quickly, Also some offers are via phone calls which can pay fairly well, but can also take the most time. I hope this little short article helps you make some easy money online.

Google Sniper pulls in passive profits, with zero traffic generation…

It’s always refreshing to see new strategies to make money online. However, the majority of the time I’m pretty disappointed with the results.

When I was recommended to buy Google Sniper, I thought it would be another system that just left me disappointed, but the proof and success stories tipped me to buy it. A quick Google search for testimonials and by watching the sales video it was clear that this system has worked wonders for other people, and it’s actually generated the most online success stories than any other system/course to date. It was a no brainer to give it a shot personally.

At the time in my Internet marketing journey, I was pretty lost as to what road to head down. Google Sniper really outlays the basics, from picking a niche, choosing keywords, buying a domain to setting up a wordpress website which will generate passive income online. It’s an extensive guide, but it’s easy to pick up (the walkthrough videos by George help also).

I studied the strategy pretty extensively to start with, and created my first “Sniper” site the next day. I was pretty excited due to the success stories, but still had that common doubt that it would be another blowout. I made my first bit of commission two weeks later after setting up the site completely. It wasn’t a huge amount but it was something, and that was the trigger to skim through the course once more to see if I could improve my site in anyway. The site in question started to generate me a tidy amount of commission, and still generates on average $375 a month (on autopilot).

As I’ve been recommended many times before, “if something works duplicate it…” And that’s what I did. I now have about 10 sniper sites, all generating commission each month. Each site differs in the amount of money I’m making, but I can’t squabble as I’m on the hunt for more…

The best thing about this course is alongside earning a nice income each month from this system on autopilot with no traffic generation, it’s also an extensive guide into niche research, finding products to promote and how to set up your own website. Yes, it may need to be read through a few times, but believe me… It’s worth it.

Posting With Hootsuite

Hoot suite makes it easy to post to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blogger, and Tumbler accounts all from one place, It have everything you need to make good clean blog posts by adding images, links, and more, you can even use raw html code to add even more to it.
I would suggest that you have the urls of any images you want to add because sadly this editor doesn't offer the option to upload an image which for everything else it does I can live with the lack of images mostly. And I can always edit it later on Blogger to add and tweaks.

It's also a great tool for social networking too, you can use it to market your affiliate offers or a product of your own creation.

Some examples of the basic stuff Hoot Suite you can do.
  • Simple
  • Bullited 
  • List
  1. Simple
  2. Numbered
  3. List
Bold Italics Score
Even Hightlighting
Everything is simple and easy to use, just like the Blogger interface.

My New Site (not done, adding products) and such.

Play Old Games On Your PC

I know this is old news but I was surprised at how many people don't know about emulators and roms that allow you to play just about all of your old favorite Nes, Snes, Saga, Game Boy, and PlayStation games on your computer and the good part is that your allowed to download any game that you already own.

All of these are free and there are many sites on the Internet that try to make you jump through hoops and even install third party software to allow you to down the games, please don't fall for such sites use the ones from the links below to download your emulators and roms (games).

I only use about three sites and have never had any issues with them, I made another post about this sometime back and even added some videos but this one is just a refresher/reminder so I'm not going to waste your time with anymore useless stuff.

Where to get your emulators...
  1. Emulator-Zone | this is hands down the best place to find the best emulators so check it out.

Where to get your games (roms)....
  1. Dope Roms | Not a bad site, has a few too many screens to go through just to download the game but the downloads are clean and in the correct format, unlike some sites that have you download a exe file.
There are plenty of other sites out there but these two should be just find for just about everyone, just remember that when you go to download your rom just open it in a new tab which should make thing a little easier.

Do any of the thousands of ways to make money online really work? Well that is a good question and one that I have been searching for an answer too for a very long time, but I have yet to find a way to make enough money to totally replace the income I had from my job where I was making over $120K per year plus some on the side for little projects.

However now that I've taken a little time off from the rat race I find myself wanting to find new and old ways that I can use to make money online and even off-line. I've had some luck with eBay and have listed a few books on Amazon but at the time of this posting nothing has sold yet... I'm wanting to get into Amazon FBA but I would like to have some success at selling on my own before jumping in with both feet.

Also I have made some money from Clickbank and other affiliate networks but not enough to brag about, either I promote the wrong things or I'm going about it in the wrong way. So now here I am looking for something that works. I've tried survey sites like Swagbucks and such but it takes soo long for me to earn enough money to be able to cash out or even have enough to be worth cashing out.

I can see the value in it if you have all day to spend on these sites but I don't have that kind of time. My time would be better spent finding ways to make money. I also toss an affiliate offer into my blog posts most of the time if it fits into what I'm writing about, most of the affiliate I've tried myself and some I have on my list of things to try.

I would hate to promote something that I would have no interest in using or is a total scam, anyway back to my ramblings. I do think that if done correctly that you could earn a great deal using affiliate networks, writing your own eBooks which is something I am working on, creating apps for iPhones and Android which is something I am thinking about I am in the jotting down ideas phase.

Also some other good ways to make money is online auctions like eBay but not just eBay also Facebook is good I've made a few bucks from selling stuff through Facebook and don't forget the apps like Letgo, Craig's List is also a good place to make some money but be careful when dealing with people you don't know, like never go to buy something with more money than you agreed on.

I also like going to flea markets and thrift shops to find good deals and items that are worth more then they are being sold for. Like retro games if they work and I can get them cheap without cutting into any chance for a profit to be made then I will happily buy them, and I never pay for what they are selling for online that would be stupid unless I had a private buyer that deals with me and doesn't worry about online prices.

As much as I write about random stuff I've been thinking about writing a few dozen articles and then submit them to some article directories so that I can get paid the more people that use my articles. Same thing with some photos, I have a Sony a58 camera that takes good pictures but I am waiting on a lens adaptor so that I can use a lens that I got from eBay that while it said it worked with my camera it sadly does not, not without an adaptor anyway.

I've been researching niche sites but that can be a lot of work to build each site, get domain names for each one and find the right affiliates for them. Then the fun comes in where you link them all together and list them in the search engines along with all the SEO work that I would have to do plus building the sites and uploading them, getting traffic, capturing email addresses for private marketing use, and making sure to do follow up emails and offer them deals on related products would make this like a job to get everything running on its own.

However once the niche sites were up and running and traffic flowing into them with just ten sites you could make an easy $100 a day if each site could bring in $10. Now that's not going to happen but it would be nice, some sites may bring in more than others but any extra money is better than no extra money.

I will update this post from time to time with anything that works for me, right now scrap iron prices are down so it's not really worth me hauling any off, but while prices are down I could go around with about $500 and buy some scrap for a really low rate from people whom just want to get rid of it I would then keep it stocked up and put away so that I can sell it all when the prices come back up.
