Laying Your Golden Retirement Egg

Golden Egg for RetirementWith my countdown to retirement now on, I’m well on my way to laying my golden retirement egg!  Sure, I have my pension funds and a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) but I also want two other things:

  • something to do
  • and earn extra income

With these things my retirement will be a success…and this is something we all need to plan and prepare for.  Retirement, like our careers, should be planned out so it can be lived and enjoyed.  Don’t retire today and wake up tomorrow wondering what you should do with the rest of your life…start doing what you planned.

Can You Make Money Blogging?

bigstock-blogging-for-money--internet--32200349One of the most asked questions online is if you can make money blogging or even how you can make money blogging.  How often have you seen this…of even asked this?  It’s a legitimate question and one that deserves an answer.

Yes, you can!

And here’s how I know that…because I am and so are the folks at my school.  But here’s the thing: it’s not overnight and it’s not as easy as the scammers would have you believe.  Everyone wants overnight success and, while laudable, is not realistic.  If you check some of the reviews on this site you will see exactly what I mean about “opportunities”.  And then compare that to my recommended school.

Want To Know How To Fix A Website? Ask For Help!

Man_Attrezzi_002Can you read this? Of course you can…you’re here. 24 hours ago you wouldn’t have been able to because somehow I managed to almost completely destroy 8 months of work. If you want to know how to fix a website I’m here to tell you one thing…ask for help!

Have you ever lost your images, links, and even your menu on your website? If you have then you can relate when I tell you how I felt when this happened to me.

My Blogging Thought for the Day: Be You Online

Think outside the box conceptHave you ever gone looking for that one thought for the day that will help, encourage, motivate, sustain you?  I think that’s why many of us search this phrase.  We often need that little push or kernel of wisdom that will help us cope or even make us smile.

There’s no better time to be thinking outside the box than when it comes to your own website and being yourself.

But what about for those of us who are creating a website and trying to develop followers online?  Do you ever feel drained and exhausted sometimes that maybe this isn’t for you?

I’ve recently discovered (I’m a slow learner sometimes) that I cannot be nor should attempt to be anyone other than myself online.
